Greene is a technology-based company which is very active in the promotion and execution of R&D&I projects, essential for maintaining technological leadership in its sector. It has the INNOVATIVE SME seal awarded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness in Spain.

As an essential support to the INTEGRA 2x5 strategy, we have designed a set of R+D+i projects to achieve technological readiness in the whole range of waste and in the whole range of chemical transformations to generate high value-added products as well as electrical and thermal energy.

Greene works on two R&D lines, which are as follows:

Integration with syngas transformation technologies. Once the challenge of developing a versatile technology capable of obtaining electrical and thermal energy from waste and any type of biomass has been met, Greene's main R&D strategy is currently focused on transforming syngas into the value-added products mentioned above. To this end, the company is working on the integration of its thermo-conversion technology, via gasification, with mature technologies for the alternative transformation of syngas.

Technological optimization. Following the results of the start-up of the current pilot plant (Nanoplant), Greene will begin a series of projects that will make it possible to reduce the cost of its thermo-conversion technology without compromising its quality.

Current projects:


Nanocatalyst

2016-2018. Project for the use of nanocatalysts in a rotary reactor for the generation of energy financed by CDTI (Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology) and in which AIDIMME (The Technological Institute of Metalworking. Furniture, Wood, Packaging and Related sectors) collaborates. It is the continuation of a nanocatalytic development project that we carried out previously with the CARTIF Institute. The project is based on the development of catalysts that improve the efficiency of the thermal degradation process of the waste, postulating an innovative thermodegradation process that allows: the individual monitoring of each of the thermodynamic stages of degradation (dehydration, pyrolysis, combustion and gasification) that take place in the gasification process.

Waste2Power

2017-2020. This demonstration project has been chosen by the European Union to be partially funded under the LIFE Programme, an initiative aimed at the environmental field that aims to contribute to sustainable development and the achievement of the objectives and goals of the Europe 2020 Strategy, known as LIFE B2E4sustainable-WWTP.

The main objective of the project is the integration of advanced sludge separation and drying technologies with a gasification plant for the production of syngas from sludge deriving from the water treatment plant located in the city of Rethymno, on the northern coast of Crete. The gas obtained will be transformed into electricity and heat by means of a cogeneration process and will allow significant energy savings in the treatment plant, as it will produce sufficient electrical energy to self-supply the operation and maintenance of this wastewater treatment plant and will also provide an outlet for waste (sludge) that does not currently have an immediate destination, beyond disposals at landfills. This sludge gasification process is carbon neutral.

The participants in this project are the University of Crete (TUC), the Technological Centre for Energy and Environment (CETENMA) of Murcia, the municipal water supply and sewerage company of the city of Rethymno in Crete and the British company Enginnov Construction. 

 
Waste2biofuel

2017-2020.  This project, known by the acronym LIFE Waste2biofuel, is a demonstration project that has also been chosen by the European Union to be partially funded under the LIFE Programme.

With the purpose of this project, in the period 2019-2020, we will proceed to install and commission a gasification plant to treat the reject fraction of the municipal solid waste generated in the Algimia de Alfara waste treatment plant (Valencia), and produce, through the integration of Fischer Tropsch technology, waxes and biodiesel, the latter being capable of being used as fuel for vehicles.

 

The participants of this project are Técnicas y Tratamientos Medioambientales SAU (Tetma), the Business Association 'Technological Centre for Energy and Environment' (CETENMA) of Murcia, the Provincial Council of Castellón and the Swedish Institute of Technology KTH.


Waste2gas

2019-2021. Design, construction, installation, commissioning and operation of a gasification plant that will process sludge from water treatment plants to obtain synthetic natural gas (SNG), also known as "renewable gas".

 

This project will involve companies of world reference in the sector of wastewater treatment and waste, and in the gas sector.
