Waste to Energy Plant Technology

Client Benefit


There are typically two types of waste to energy plant technology: conventional waste incineration involving the process of burning solid waste to produce heat and electricity, and advanced biofuel technology, which converts organic waste into liquid or gaseous fuel to generate energy.

Our client's aim was to design, manufacture, and operate waste-to-energy plant technologies to resolve ever-growing waste problems, and to produce cleaner, sustainable, and cost-effective energy throughout the disposal of waste.

Their vision was to create an industrial process that applies municipal solid waste, plastics, and other waste to produce high-quality biofuels, biomethane, and green hydrogen. Creating a whole new process has required developing new technology to achieve the desired output and ensuring that the outcome is feasible.

This involved studying the mechanics of plant technology, practising further, and developing various techniques and add-on processes, such as 100% carbon capturing and converting CO2 into dry ice for various industries.

We spent more time with this team than with most of our other clients because HMRC wanted to learn more about them and have further discussions, particularly since so much of the team’s work was beyond the normal scope.

Listening to the team discuss all they had been up to and their incredible aims with the technology they were developing was fantastic, and the HMRC officers were certainly very impressed with their work. We expect to hear big things in the future once the technology is ready.
