Placing EfW at the very core of the green transition and circular economy

Emissions from waste and open landfills have become one of the largest environmental issues in the world. A growing population and the rise in consumption makes sure this trend will continue for decades if no measures are initiated.

Energy from Waste (EfW) is the solution. Not only does it create valuable energy, but it also solves a problem, reducing the emissions from waste. The team behind Green Transition Holding has more than 30 years of experience in waste management with a proven turnkey EfW solution with the possibility for integrated Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) which is both economical and scalable.

According to The Bellona Foundation, an independent non-profit organization that aims to meet and fight the climate challenges, the European Union (EU) in 2019 generated 224 Mt of municipal waste; 53 Mt were landfilled, 60 Mt incinerated, and 107 Mt recycled. Export of hazardous and non-hazardous waste had tripled between 2001 and 2020, growing from 6.3 million tons to 32.7 million tons respectively.

The municipal waste sector is the fourth largest contributor to emissions in the EU. In 2017, the emissions registered for the waste sector amounted to approximately 138 million tons of greenhouse gases.

Emissions from waste incineration in Europe grew from 5.4 million tons CO2 in 1990 to 95.6 million tons of CO2 and are now approximately equivalent to emissions from landfills.

In the UK, B2B waste pollution accounts for a large portion of the UK’s CO2 emissions from open landfills. Green Transition Holding has the technology to generate energy from this waste.

So how does it work?
