Renescience: a model to be exported to California to convert organic waste into energy

Simon Chignell - Head of US Project Development, Orsted

Renescience is an organic waste disposal plant in the UK, where waste is 100% used and transformed into biogas or recycled products. This waste management model could be adopted in California, where the SP1383 directive set ambitious targets. The goal is to reduce landfill waste by 50% by 2020 and by 75% by 2025. Indeed, the European experience could help reach those ambitious goals through the adoption of waste separation technology, while also leading to a decrease in costs for users.
