Renewable Energy Micro Power Plant Using Organic Waste as Fuel

Project description

Turning food waste into energy all in one place

Traditional ways of dealing with organic waste are not sustainable. Urbanisation is putting too much pressure on landfills and making waste management too costly. To reverse this trend, future buildings could process their own organic waste while recapturing the energy, fertiliser and water from it. The EU-funded MicroRenew project will develop the manufacturability of a new device that turns food waste into energy. The patented FLEXIBUSTER™ can process up to 3 000 kg of waste per day, reducing the cost of waste transport and disposal. It can generate clean energy in the form of electricity and heat, with water and fertiliser as its only by-products.

Objective

SEaB Energy focuses on sustainability, circular economy, efficient use of resources. Our vision for the future cities: every
building processing its own organic waste while recapturing the energy, fertiliser and water from it. The food supply chain produces a
lot of organic waste material that needs managing. Traditional ways of dealing with this waste are not sustainable. Urbanisation and the increasing pressure on landfill sites is driving up the cost of waste management. Hauling this waste from the point of production to centralised facilities adds cost and increases the carbon footprint of waste. The patented and multi-award winning FLEXIBUSTER™ is designed to turn food waste into energy right at the point where the waste is generated and the energy required. Once installed, FLEXIBUSTER™ can process between 500-3000 kg of waste per day, reducing the cost of waste transport and disposal, whilst generating clean energy in form of electricity and heat, with nutrient rich water and fertiliser as sole by-products. This is done in a containerised, modular set-up that is easily scalable within site and geographically as well and is fully automated, can be remotely controlled. Our solution has the highest fit to Future City concept on the market, as can be integrated into building infrastructure and has unique odour control. We designed and are pilot testing our TRL6 system currently. The full system architecture and functioning is patented in our target geographies. We have hazard, health and safety certifications for our current solution. We have a diverse multi-lingual and multinational team committed to continue product development to improve manufacturability, make installations faster, and to meet newage IT standards aimed at bringing our innovation ready for large scale commercialisation contributing significantly to EC’s Green Deal objectives.
