Heat Map: 4 Top Advanced Waste-to-Energy Solutions
For our 4 top picks, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 4 interesting examples out of 108 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Agilyx – Plastic-To-Crude Oil
Converting waste plastics into raw materials has numerous benefits. Through a combination of technical expertise, operating know-how, technology platform, and partnerships with industry, USA-based Agilyx, an alternative energy company, converts plastic waste into refinery-ready crude oil with proprietary and patented technology. They are committed to a more environmentally responsible reality for plastics and polymers. Liquified waste plastic can be a substitute for crude oil, with further opportunity to be upgraded to fuels, chemicals and even new types of plastics.
Frontline BioEnergy – Waste Gasification
Although the recycling rate of waste has increased over the last few years, so has the overall waste volume in landfills. Another way to decrease those high numbers in landfill trash is to use waste gasification. Using Pressurized Bubbling Fluidized Bed (PBFB) air-blown and enriched oxygen-blown gasification, followed by gas cooling and water condensation to produce a fuel gas that is free of particulate and has low tar and moisture levels. Gasification not only helps waste management, but it also displaces conventional fossil fuels while producing cleaner energy. Frontline BioEnergy from the USA designs custom systems for waste, more specifically for biomass gasification.
Other startups that we analyzed for this article include Renewlogy and Rays Enserv.
