The Future is

How much waste does your consumption cause?

Each year, Europe produces 120 million kilograms of food that is not eaten. This is caused by issues during production, limited shelf-life of products, or because we just throw it away at home.

Only a quarter of Europe's food waste is reused effectively. Perpetual Next uses the opportunity, together with its colleagues in the market, to repurpose the remaining 90 billion kilos of food waste as high-quality products. We do this by using the best technologies to make new products in our European production facilities.

Number 1 in Europe

By producing and exporting agricultural products worth a combined €94.5 billion in 2019, the Netherlands became the largest agricultural producer and exporter in Europe and the second largest in the world. As a result, we produce many organic residues in addition to fantastic products. This brings responsibilities with it. Perpetual Next will add to this leading role of the Netherlands by converting unused organic residues into high-quality products. This represents a chance for the Netherlands and Europe while also combating the unnecessary import or use of fossil raw materials.

As the Netherlands, we have a responsibility

What we do


Organic Residues

Your waste is our raw material. Our vision is to use or reuse the infinite stream of regional, organic, low-quality residues as a raw material to create a fantastic, high-quality product. This concerns residues from arable farming, livestock farming, and timber production. We are looking for certified, organic residues that are as sustainable as possible. This is why we oppose practices such as deforestation or the import of high-grade wood from overseas for use in much too 'low-grade' production such as to produce electricity.


Upgrading Residues

We take regional, organic residues of the lowest quality possible and upgrade it with our production facilities & technology, to a sustainable raw material of the highest possible quality. While we do this, we constantly work to improve and innovate our upgrading technologies and processes. Our digesters, boilers, and reactors are set to achieve maximum efficiency and quality with minimal emissions and environmental impact. Would you like to know more about our production facilities?

High-Quality Products

In Europe, we use organic residues to produce biogas and process heat for various industries. We also produce high-grade carbon, made from cellulose waste, with an infinite number of applications. Our high-grade carbon being used as a soil conditioner in agriculture or on sports fields is one example of this. Perpetual Next is always looking for the highest-quality product. That's why we work with the chemical industry, so that we can eventually give our raw materials a second life in the production of bioplastics, for example.

An Infinite Mission

Ensuring no organic waste in Europe is wasted, by giving all organic waste and residues a high quality destination – that's Perpetual Next's infinite mission.

Why? Because we are contributing to the transition to a more responsible use of the above-ground raw materials. Prevention of pollution and waste is an essential part of this.

Our Ambition

Perpetual Next has a central office in Amsterdam and is currently active in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland and Estonia. Our ambition is to be the European market leader in upgrading organic waste and residual flows by 2030. In the coming years, we will first scale up in our existing markets and production facilities, such as our Primco locations and Baltania. There we operate vital infrastructure that cannot be stopped.

Our ambitions for 2030 and the further future are global in scale, but we will achieve them by pursuing acquisition and development policies in regions in which we are already active. This will make us more resistant to COVID-19, particularly because we're also making sure that our operations can be controlled remotely in a lockdown situation. Production, construction, and acquisitions continue at our company.
