Research & Development

Together with universities in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, we are conducting pioneering research into carbon technologies, such as carbonisation and gasification. These technologies have the potential to play a key role in our mutual journey toward a circular, fossil-free economy.

Perpetual Next pushes the boundaries of technology to give organic waste streams of the lowest quality the highest application. This is how we support the industry in the transition to Net Zero.

Our Research Projects

Organic waste streams

Wageningen University & Research

Together with Wageningen University & Research, we explore the lowest-grade organic residual streams to use as inputs in our conversion facilities. This allows us to offer the widest range in terms of feedstock options, technologies and industrial applications.


TU Delft & Universiteit van Nottingham

Together with Delft University of Technology and the University of Nottingham, we are exploring the applications of Perpetual Carbon for various industries. In particular, we are focusing on the following sectors: steel, cement, building, utilities, chemical and agricultural. Because these key industries have the greatest opportunities for a climate neutral world.

HTT reactor


University of Leeds & University of Nottingham

Together with the University of Leeds and the University of Nottingham, we are exploring ways to optimize our technology and make our production facilities ever more efficient. We work toward the highest possible production with the highest efficiency. We also give the residual products from our processes a new use.

Perpetual Next - Biogas


Delft University of Technology

Together with Delft University of Technology, we are exploring ways to optimize our gasification processes. After successfully launching our carbonisation technology on an industrial scale, we are taking the next step to gasification and gas refining of the carbonised material. This will allow us to serve the chemical industry in the transition to Net Zero.

Chemical raw materials

Chemelot InSciTe

As a participant in the BM2C6 consortium, led by Chemelot InSciTe, we are working to extract valuable chemical raw materials from carbonised material. The BM2C6 project is developing a new value chain from biomass to C6 monomers. All process steps will be demonstrated on pilot scale. This project is expected to show both ecologic and economic benefits for the entire value chain. This will give a wide range of opportunities to industrial partners to step in and differentiate themselves in sustainable activities.
