Turning waste into value: advanced solutions for hydrogen, biofuels, SNG and other energy production
EQTEC Technical Centre
Engineering and developing clean energy infrastructure
A key advantage is the versatility of our technology to process nearly 60 different types of feedstock, including municipal waste, agricultural waste, biomass and plastics. Our solutions produce a uniquely pure high-quality synthesis gas (syngas), that is capable of being used for the widest applications in the generation of clean energy (power and heat), hydrogen, biofuels and more. Proprietary technology design, when combined with high-performance deployment and maintenance capabilities, mitigate the risks when using any third-party equipment. Technology integration capabilities enable us to lead collaborative project ecosystems that build sustainable, waste to clean energy and biofuels infrastructure.
A small number of companies have designed successful small scale gasification operations that can process specific feedstocks.
EQTEC is the only one to transition to reliable commercial-scale application of the technology
Clean syngas production
EQTEC is a globally recognised expert specialising in advanced gasification with the overarching proposition of taking carbon rich wastes – including plant and agriculture biomass, forestry wood biomass, municipal solid waste and industrial waste – and thermochemically converting it into:
Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG)
Baseload electrical power
Synthetic aviation fuels and other biofuels
Steam and thermal power
The future of energy
Overall energy demand is not forecast to change – but source supplies are transitioning away from fossil fuels to renewables. Most bets are being placed on natural sources (wind, solar, hydro) but these are intermittent and provide only peak, fuel flex solutions. Nuclear is currently a viable non-fossil fuel baseload solution along with the syngas from advanced gasification. Increasingly energy will be provided by electricity and currently nascent fuels like hydrogen.
Our strategy in a growing market
We believe that demand for clean energy and biofuels will grow significantly over the next few years based on the increasing drive for improved air quality worldwide, the growth of renewables in the energy mix and the need to decarbonise industrial processes.
We also believe that EQTEC remains particularly well-positioned to continue to innovate and capture new segments of each market, leading a team of partners to design, develop, commission and maintain waste-to-value plants.
