Powerhouse Chairman talks about appointing W2T as consultants 26/01/2017
Waste2Tricity is a structured solutions provider to the energy-from-waste (EfW) sector. We work with clients and partners to develop, support and invest in projects generating low carbon electricity from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and Commercial and Industrial Waste (C&I).
Waste2Tricity focuses on deployment projects which use and integrate proven plasma gasification and internal combustion engines/gas turbines (ICEs/GTs). We see this as most efficient and proven combination of current conversion technologies and therefore holds the most potential for long term profit. Deployment projects in the Waste2Tricity portfolio will be proven, profitable and progressive.
Waste2Tricity is involved in three influential projects; projects that will define the EfW market for the foreseeable future. See details of our Bilsthorpe project
Air Products Teesside Facility
Air Products is a global supplier of industrial gases, performance materials, equipment and technology. Air Products has secured planning consent to develop a 49MW (300,000 tonne) advanced gasification energy from waste (EfW) facility, deploying gas turbines at the New Energy and Technology Business Park, near Billingham, Teesside. Once operational the facility will generate renewable electricity for up to 50,000 homes in the North East.
In its role as a structured solutions provider Waste2Tricity identified the Teesside site for Air Products. Waste2Tricity continues to work with Air Products identifying sites for future development - Air Products hopes to build up to five advanced gasification plants in the UK in the coming years.
In the longer-term, Air Products' plant has the potential to produce renewable hydrogen and is being considered for a demonstration of AFC's fuel cell technology. Waste2Tricity has acquired the exclusive UK deployment rights (for use in high temperature waste-from-energy applications) for AFC Energy fuel cells. The introduction of AFC fuel cells will increase system efficiency by up to an estimated 70% and future proofs W2T projects and those of its partners.
Waste2Tricity EfW Consortium
As a structured solutions provider Waste2Tricity is spearheading talks with engineering, land holding, technology and waste management industry leaders; assembling a consortium to develop smaller scale (circa 12MW/80,000 tonne) plasma gasification EfW facilities deploying efficient, proven internal combustion engines with other proven technologies.
The development of smaller scale EfW facilities affords a growth opportunity in a market that the Air Products' Teesside project has made a commercially viable and investable reality. Details of the first facility at Bilsthorpe, Nottinghamshire here
Waste2Tricity intends to structure the investment opportunity and co-ordinate the consortium's activities by acting as the sponsoring partner in a Special Purpose Vehicle [SPV] to raise funding for construction of the plants.
The initial plant is projected to be operational within three years of project funding. Potential investors wanting more information should contact - investor.relations@waste2Tricity.com
In the longer-term, the proposed consortium facility has the potential to produce renewable hydrogen and could host a demonstration of AFC's fuel cell technology. For more on the technology of tomorrow click here »
Waste2Tricity has acquired the exclusive UK deployment rights (for use in high temperature waste-from-energy applications) for AFC Energy fuel cells. The introduction of AFC fuel cells could increase system efficiency by up to an estimated 70%.
Waste2Tricity's commitment to deploy proven technology, while investing in the technology of tomorrow, creates a stable future for the company, our projects and our partners.
In addition to its Deployment Projects Waste2Tricity also uses its expertise to advance development programmes to maximise returns for its shareholders.
Facilities generating electricity by way of high temperature plasma gasification (and thus syngas) have the potential to produce renewable hydrogen (hydrogen can be separated from the syngas stream), which can in turn power new generation developmental fuel cells. The introduction of hydrogen fuel cells, replacing internal combustion engines/gas turbines, could increase system efficiency by up to an estimated 70%.
Waste2Tricity has selected AFC Energy's fuel cell system as having the greatest potential to be the most efficient, low cost technology for generating electrical power from gasified waste and in a £1 million deal, Waste2Tricity has acquired the exclusive deployment rights (for use in energy-from-waste applications) for AFC Energy fuel cells in the UK.

Waste2Tricity continues to work with AFC Energy through its Beta testing phase to ensure maximum compatibility EfW facilities.
