Modern society needs safe, reliable and affordable energy to work properly and safeguard our standard of living. The challenge is how to meet our energy demands but at the same time keep climate change in check. We see active climate protection and a reliable energy supply not as opposites, but as essentials. This applies to the full energy supply chain, from the production of raw materials to the generation of electric power, from the transportation of energy to its consumption.

Waste-to-energy (WtE) or energy-from-waste is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of waste source. WtE is a form of energy recovery.

Most WtE processes produce electricity directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels

On behalf of clients, the greenXchange is seeking collaborative project programs in the areas of:

  biohydrogen production,

  gasification systems,

  pyrolysis,

  anaerobic digestion,

  fermentation and

  mechanical biological treatment.
