Revolutionizing Wastewater Treatment and Energy Production through Biogas Recovery Technology: WASE’s Electro-Methanogenic Reactor

WASE Raises £8.5M to Expand Waste-to-Energy Technology

Wastewater is a valuable resource that has the potential to be converted into energy through Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plants. The Electro-Methanogenic Reactor technology developed by WASE, a leading company in waste treatment and energy sectors, aims to maximize the recovery of biogas from organic matter in wastewater. This innovative technology is designed to optimize waste breakdown and boost methane production, making it an essential component of any AD plant.

According to the company, their units can increase biogas generation by 30% and do so up to ten times faster than traditional AD methods. Additionally, the technology boosts the methane content of biogas to over 80%, compared to the more typical 50-60% found in conventional AD processes. This significant increase in methane content results in higher energy production and lower costs for companies operating AD plants.

WASE’s plug-and-play system is designed to seamlessly integrate into existing infrastructure and is significantly smaller, by 50-70%, than other available options. This modular solution allows for customization, making it easier for companies to deploy at their site and achieve increased energy production and reduced costs in the long term.

Founder and CEO of WASE, Thomas Fudge, envisions their technology setting a new standard in waste treatment and energy sectors by optimizing waste breakdown and boosting methane production. The company aims to play a significant role in the Waste-to-Energy transition by becoming leaders in the biogas market. Extantia Principal, Carlota Ochoa Neven Du Mont, believes that WASE’s approach not only increases biogas and biomethane yields but also reshapes the way industrial businesses view their resources.
