phs is delighted to announce that LifeCycle™, our internationally patented, waste-to-energy process has been shortlisted for a BusinessGreen Technology award, 2018. phs LifeCycle has been shortlisted in the Circular Economy Technology of the Year category. The awards are the chance to showcase some of the most exciting green technology businesses in the UK to investors, policymakers and prospective customers.
Now in the fourth year, the BusinessGreen Technology Awards provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the cutting-edge technologies and innovators that are working to accelerate the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy.
The Circular Economy Technology of the Year award will go to the technology that promises to deliver the most exciting circular economy development, be it through enhanced resource efficiency, closed loop recycling, material science innovation, the embrace of eco-design principles, and/or enabling sharing economy business models.
LifeCycle provides a solution to one of the most pressing sustainability challenges we face. Hygiene products (nappies, sanitary products and incontinence products) are a necessary part of our lives, but disposing of them via incineration or landfill has become expensive and is environmentally unfriendly.
LifeCycle is the only facility in the UK with the technology and capacity to convert these absorbent hygiene waste products into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), and to do so, on an industrial scale. The RDF is used as a fuel source by business and industry.
Ed Griggs, phs LifeCycle Engineering Manager said: “We’re delighted to have received this nomination. Hygiene products are an essential part of many people’s everyday lives but disposing of them has always been an issue. We have spent almost a decade refining our new waste-to-energy process, LifeCycle, and we now have a viable option for diverting hygiene waste products away from landfill. It’s great to know our success has been acknowledged by our industry’s leading decision makers.”
Winners will be revealed at a ceremony on the evening of 7 December 2018 at the May Fair Hotel, London.
