Revenue from small EfW plant is demonstrated in canary wharf

SEaB Energy will pilot its containerised energyfrom- waste technology at London’s Canary Wharf after winning the second phase of the Cognicity Challenge.

Cognicity is a ‘smart cities’ accelerator programme designed and delivered by Entiq for Canary Wharf Group. It was established to discover and support the development of future technologies with positive economic, social and environmental impacts.

SEaB has developed a patented, micro-power plant that turns food and organic waste into heat, energy and water directly on the site of where the waste is produced. This generates an attractive revenue stream, eliminates the need to transport food waste to distant processing plants and significantly reduces the site’s carbon footprint.

According to SEaB, this is becoming critical for new developments because, in order for them to comply with Part L of Building Regulations, their building emissions rate or dwelling emissions rate must be less than their target emissions rate.

Sandra Sassow, SEaB Energy chief executive, said: “Showcasing our technology in the heart of the capital will allow us to demonstrate to businesses that their waste can be transformed into revenue and carbon offsets, even where space is at a premium.”

SEaB has been awarded £50,000 alongside the opportunity to implement its technology at Canary Wharf. The award will kick-start co-operation with Intel, the event sponsor, to incorporate Intel’s latest technology into SEaB products.
