Our SG technology offers clean power, biogas, carbon removal and carbon credits.
Our products include biochar and biogas, which replace fossil fuels and reduce Scope 1 emissions.
By harnessing the energy in waste more efficiently than all existing large-scale processors, our biogas will generate significant amounts of clean power and reduce an organisation’s near-direct emissions.
Wherever it treats waste, our process removes carbon and saves GHG emissions.
SG technology uses a wide range of non-recyclable wastes instead of fossil fuels to generate biogas, electricity and heat for all sectors, including the hard-to-abate. Our SG 100 plant contributes to the Circular Economy by converting plastic waste to molecular feedstock.
By 2050, global waste generation is forecast to be almost 3.5 billion tonnes a year. Currently, less than 15% of the world’s waste is processed for recycling, clean energy recovery or carbon capture. What a waste!
What’s more, in 2016, those 2 billion tonnes of solid waste generated 1.6 billion tonnes of CO₂ equivalent – or about 5% of global emissions. If steps aren’t taken to prevent this, CO₂ equivalent emissions from waste could hit 2.6 billion tonnes by 2050.
In 2017, 97.5% of the UK’s non-recyclable waste was landfilled, incinerated or exported, generating over 30m tonnes of CO₂. Just 2.5% was processed, wasting a great opportunity to generate clean energy and capture carbon.
With 573 of our energy-from-waste plants, we could end landfilling and incineration. We’re ambitious, but also realistic. Our 5-year goal is to install 50 plants resulting in a material reduction in UK Greenhouse Gas emissions.
Today, 97.5% of the UK’s residual waste is still landfilled, incinerated or exported. That’s a waste of a rich, renewable energy resource, and a missed opportunity to remove and reduce atmospheric carbon.
