European waste-to-energy sector welcomes new “ambitious standards”

Paul De Bruycker, the President of the Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants (CEWEP) said: “We are very proud of the environmental performances of waste-to-energy plants in Europe, which continue to act as a sink for pollution in an integrated waste management, treating the waste that cannot be recycled in an environmentally sound way, while using robust technology and long-term experience.

“The European Green Deal will be based on pillars such as circular economy and zero pollution. Waste-to-Energy provides the perfect bridge to support the efforts of our society to become more circular while avoiding that substances of concern re-enter the cycle.

“At the same time it helps to achieve the objectives on air and water quality, soil protection as well as health and environmental preservation as a whole.”

Powerhouse Energy Group PLC (LON:PHE) has developed the innovative PHE DMG® System, their proprietary thermal conversion technology. DMG® technology provides a mechanism to dispose of a wide range of waste streams by using them as feedstock that can be converted to EcoSynthesis Gas.
