Turned waste into electricity to sustainably balance the grid
Europe is intent on moving to a circular economy in which waste and pollution are eliminated, products and materials reused and natural systems are regenerated. The idea of circularity can be applied in many ways and to many sectors, especially the energy sector. As we transition away from fossil fuels towards cleaner forms of energy, biomass conversion to syngas is becoming a competitive candidate. The EU-funded WASTE2GRIDS project is contributing to a circular economy by converting bio-wastes in a power plant with power-to-x capability. The team is evaluating several business cases in Europe. The WASTE2GRIDS concept will be a sustainable way for grid balancing with enhanced economic competitiveness of biomass use.
