Upgrading organic waste into high-value products 

Perpetual Next Conversions develops and operates production facilities in which both own and externally procured technologies are applied. In these facilities regional low value organic waste streams are converted into renewable products:

  • High-quality heat for residential and industrial applications (from organic waste streams of the lowest value for which a higher-value application is no longer possible);
  • Green gas to replace fossil gas (with gas upgrading as the next step on the technology roadmap);
  • Biocoal and Biochar as inputs to, for example, agricultural fertilizers and bio-chemicals.

More about Conversions   

While for some classes of organic residual streams there may be a number of usage options. For others there may be only one appropriate technology. The suitability of organic waste as feedstock for conversion projects depends on the composition of the output and the desired energy carrier product.   
  
Many organic waste streams are potentially viable energy feedstocks (including wood, agricultural and forest product residues, municipal solid waste and industrial waste) and can be selected based on cost, net greenhouse gas emissions, and appropriateness to the intended conversion process and growing environment.

The Dutch municipalities collected an average of 493 kilograms of household waste per inhabitant in 2019.

How we work

Perpetual Next has production facilities throughout Europe. We focus on the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, and Estonia. In the coming years, we will scale up our existing production facilities, serving a vital infrastructure that needs to be operational at all times. But we are also constantly looking for new acquisitions, in particular existing plants that we can make more sustainable. We do this by mapping out the local, organic residual streams. With our conversion techniques, we turn them into the highest-quality products possible.
