From Luxembourg
Maturity stage TRL 7 - Prototype testing in the real world

Waste is produced everywhere and even the most ambitious circular economy scenarios, predict several hundred of million tons of non-recyclable waste produced all over the world. Dumping and landfilling that waste is no longer an acceptable option. And large scale incineration is struggling with increasing cost, toxic ash residues, stricter emission regulations and social resistance. In addition to recycling leftovers, wastes like medical waste and other hazardous wastes need destruction with minimal environmental impact and maximum capital and energy efficiency – also for developing markets to afford proper treatment preventing waste from leaking into cities, rivers and our oceans. Plasma Assisted Gasification (PAG) is a clean energy recovery technology that transforms non-recyclable waste into hydrogen power, heat or greenhouse-gas-free thermal cooling for direct local use – without toxic residues or urban stress

The Environmental Benefits

  • Treats 8,000 - 16,000 tons of medical or hazardous waste per year
  • Zero toxic ash
  • Output of 100kg of clean, local and affordable hydrogen per ton of waste
  • More than 2 tons of CO2e emissions avoided per ton treated (compared to landfill)

The Financial Benefits

  • 4-7 year project payback time compared to 9-11 years for incineration
