New energy-from-waste company formed

New energy-from-waste company formed
Calls for more focus on energy-from-waste have been answered by the creation of a new company that will concentrate on this issue.

Waste2Tricity is a new firm that intends to develop both community and business-scale renewable energy plants.

The company has suggested that it may be able to produce energy at a cost of £250,000 per MW of capacity in the future, New Energy Focus reports.

It will turn waste into a gas to generate electricity, with the sophisticated gasification system set turning the commercial and domestic waste into a hydrogen-rich 'syngas'.

Lord Moonie, the former defence minister, is the company's chairman elect. He told the website that the system could have "significant environmental and cost benefits over other methods of electricity generation".

Howard White, the firm's lead consultant, added: "We are launching this company purely from a commercial perspective.

"We are talking to waste management company Biffa already, since we would be looking for Biffa to supply a homogenous stream of refuse-derived fuel, or a homogenised mix of waste."

In the past, Mr White founded alkaline fuel cell manufacturers AFC Energy.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18946604-ADNFCR
