Choosing energy from waste
The provision of energy from waste provides tangible benefits to local industry, businesses and the wider community.
A green way to dispose of waste
Even with ever-increasing levels of recycling, there will always be a residual waste stream that needs to be disposed of.
In addition, the EU’s Landfill Directive places an obligation on local authorities to divert biodegradable waste from landfill.
ENERGOS is already enabling local authorities, businesses and communities to take responsibility for the management of their waste streams in a sustainable way, while meeting EU legislative obligations.
A renewable source of energy
Oil and gas wholesale prices are predicted to keep rising, meaning the cost of heat and power from these sources will continue to increase.
At the same time there is a growing need, spurred by EU environmental regulation, to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Energy from waste offers an alternative, secure and sustainable source of energy, to provide local communities with heat (hot water and steam) and power.
Energy recovery from waste helps insulate local businesses and communities from rising energy prices, helping maintain competitiveness. Such sustainability provides an attractive platform for inward investment, helping create and secure jobs.
Government financial incentives
Our technology is classified as an Advanced Conversion Technology (ACT) and the electricity produced from the biomass fraction of the waste qualifies for maximum Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs), enhancing the normal income streams.
Energy recovered from the biomass content is not subject to the Climate Change Levy (CCL)
The energy recovered from the biodegradable fraction of waste provides some exemption from CO2emissions under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)
