Green energy from wastewater

In the past, wastewater sludge has been seen as a problem material with no value. In fact, it can be rich in phosphates and the materials needed to make plastic. It can also be used as a fuel to generate green energy.

Our bio-refinery utilises Veolia’s know-how to turn sludge into renewable energy by creating an efficient ‘sludge stream’. We are already doing this on behalf of a number of water and sewerage companies across the UK. 
As demand for these solutions increases, innovative developments in technology, people capability and processes will make these sustainability solutions a key part of the circular economy and more efficient.
