EU funds on-site energy

SEab Energy 2000

Southampton-based SEaB Energy has received EU funding that will help it to accelerate the adoption of its energy-from-waste technology across Europe and international markets.

The company’s micro-power plants, housed in standard shipping containers, turn food scraps, grass clippings and animal waste into heat, electricity and water at the place where the waste is produced. This provides a revenue stream, eliminates the need to transport food waste to processing plants and significantly reduces the site’s carbon footprint.

The grant has been awarded by LoToNo, a regional project to help nurture innovative business that develop low-carbon solutions in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Funding for the project has come directly from the EU and will provide SEaB Energy, along with 24 other regional businesses creating novel solutions to sustainability challenges, with access to technological and design expertise and a network of research organisations, as well as a valuable injection of cash.

Sandra Sassow, chief executive of SEaB Energy (pictured above), said: “This funding will not only help us to expand into other European markets but will also give us access to valuable expertise that can help us refine our products for other market sectors.”
