Each year, the UK produces over 200 million of tonnes of waste. Less than half is recycled - and sending the rest to landfill is no longer an option.
At QinetiQ we understand your waste management
challenges. After eight years of thorough research, we have developed a revolutionary
small-scale energy from waste
solution which takes mixed waste and processes it - to produce a clean, renewable
source of energy.
Our modular enterprise-wide solution, will enable our customers to recover value from their municipal and hazardous waste through the generation of heat and power.
QinetiQ's Energy from Waste vision is to allow customers to achieve complete on-site waste ownership and help their waste supply chain become 'leaner' and 'greener'. The financial and environmental benefits can be quantified through our comprehensive software to provide an overview of potential savings in both costs and carbon.
QinetiQ has such belief in this technology that we have wholly funded its production and are applying it on our own site. This is tomorrow’s technology, right here - right now.
Energy from Waste - an overview:
A scalable, next generation technology designed to decentralise
the waste management process by turning rubbish to power without it leaving your site.
Mixed, non-recyclables and municipal solid waste can all be processed.
Thermally processes your waste, producing excess synthesis gas that can be separated and used for heat or energy in your buildings.
Unlike incineration, there is no oxygen or combustion in the thermal plant, making it cleaner and greener.
The benefits are:
Cost savings. Save money on waste disposal contracts, landfill taxes and power bills by turning your waste into a useful resource that generates heat or power for your organisation.
A greener organisation. Contribute to your Carbon Reduction Commitment and show you care about the environment by reducing your waste production, eliminating fuel spent on sending waste to a central point for disposal and embracing renewable energy sources.
Risk reduction. This straightforward, robust technology comes from one of the most trusted names in delivering technology solutions and allows you to control what happens to your waste.
Simple to set up. Unlike other waste disposal methods, these plants are simple to install. The Environment Agency supports and endorses small scale pyrolysis energy from waste, making it less challenging to gain planning permission from local authorities.
Measurable advantages. Our comprehensive software enables you to quantify the financial and environmental benefits of individual or networked solutions, giving an overview of your savings in both cost and carbon.
Flexibility. This modular, scalable solution is designed to be used locally. Large retailers, hospitals, councils and offices can easily control their own waste management. In fact, our vision is to see the QinetiQ Energy from Waste solution in domestic settings in the not-too-distant future!
