How can we shape a more sustainable future of renewable energy production from biobased materials through new types of closed loop solutions?
Biowaste without proper treatment technologies is virtually worthless. In fact, if not treated properly biowaste is a hazard for our environment. When biowaste decomposes quickly, the large amount of green house gases is emitted. The biggest challenge is that the industries that make biobased products great to use, also make it a huge threat to the environment once it becomes biowaste. Due to lack of technologies deployed, we are therefore only able to treat approximately 10% biowaste worldwide
The organic waste is the type of waste that once treated properly can generate both energy and biobased fertilizer. At Reneron, we plan to process more than 1.1 million tons of organic waste every year resulting in 120 millions m3 of biogas production. By replacing fossil based energy and gas with biobased electricity or biomethane, we achieve a sustainable circular economy where waste is elevated to a resource. At Reneron we produce bioenergy and fertilizers from biowaste while avoiding the greenhouse gas emissions. The overall Reneron CO2 emissions for 15 year life cycle will result in 2.94 million tons of CO2eq savings. This is the amount as nearly 91 788 hectares of grown forest absorbs every year
