Engie biogas breakthrough set for commercialisation
Solid recovered fuel, which would otherwise end up in landfill, will be converted into biogas and industrial heat from 2026
Engie recently achieved a world first by producing renewable gas from solid non-recyclable waste in an industrial setting. Through the Gaya semi-industrial research & development platform, the French multinational electric utility company made the step forward by producing renewable gas from solid recovered fuel (SRF).
SRF is mostly made up of waste wood, paper, cardboard and plastic—and the material Engie uses would otherwise have been destined to end up in landfill. Building on this scientific advance, Engie plans to build a first industrial unit in Le Havre, France, starting construction in 2023. The Salamandre project, set to be operational in 2026, would allow 70,000t/yr of non-rec
