Frequently Asked Questions

  • At our fifth reactivation facility, we will be able to reactivate the sulfur loaded spent carbon from our biogas customers. Currently, these filters are discharged at the Furnace 4 premises and then must undergo another step of external treatment. With our new reactivation technology, we will make our operations nearly 100% circular.

    By producing biogas from organic waste and agricultural residues, European countries can generate a domestic source of renewable energy. This can help diversify their energy mix and reduce reliance on imports of fossil fuels, including Russian natural gas.

  • We are committed to minimizing any possible effects and actively engage with the local community to address any concerns and foster positive relationships through speaking transparently about our operations.

    Our newest reactivation facility will undergo full encapsulation, as you can see in the picture below, to eradicate even the slightest chance of dust or odor. Consequently, this will minimize any potential impact on the local community.

    Once operational, the furnace will be under continuous surveillance, consistent with all rigorous safety and cleanliness standards.

  • No! Similar to our other facilities, this chimney will emit nothing but water vapor and air – effectively, clouds!
