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.
The circular economy is considered to be a key part of the solution to the global emissions and waste problem with Energy from Waste as a vital complement to the circular economy as it avoids landfilling, reduce GHG emissions and generate renewable energy and is the only electricity generating technology with positive effect on GHG emissions.
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.

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.
Governments across the emerging markets are eager to tap into waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies, but many are learning that it takes more than the granting of licenses to create economically and environmentally sustainable WTE solutions.
Reviews government support through grants, loans, tax exemptions and other mechanisms are a key part of the overall policy mix for waste managment.
