  • Amsterdamse tech-startup AWECT helpt mee in strijd om schonere lucht in China
    Amsterdamse tech-startup AWECT helpt mee in strijd om schonere lucht in China

    De Amsterdamse technology-startup AWECT (Amsterdam Waste Environmental Consultancy & Technology) start een samenwerking met het Chinese Kangda EP. De joint venture moet leiden tot nieuwe afvalverbrandingsfabrieken in China die dagelijks 30.000 ton afval omzetten in energie. De feestelijke ondertekening van de overeenkomst vond plaats onder het goedkeurend oog van minister-president Mark Rutte, die in China op handelsmissie is. 

    De ambitie van de joint venture tussen AWECT en Kangda EP (Environmental Protection) is om in de komende vijf jaar projecten te ontwikkelen, die 30.000 ton huishoudelijk afval per dag verwerken. Dit afval verdwijnt dan niet meer op de vuilstortplaats, maar wordt omgezet in energie. Niet alleen wordt energie opgewekt, ook wordt een CO2-uitstoot vermeden van ruim 12 miljoen ton op jaarbasis. Ter vergelijking: dit staat bijna gelijk aan een kwart van de doelstelling van het kabinet-Rutte III om in 2030 de CO2- uitstoot te beperken met 56 miljoen ton.

    AWECT
    Het in Amsterdam gevestigde AWECT levert diensten voor afvalverbrandingsprojecten en raadpleegt overheden over strategieën voor afvalbeheer in een circulaire samenleving. Afvalverbranding is complementair aan recycling in een circulaire economie en concurreert er nooit mee, omdat het een goede ‘sink’-oplossing biedt voor afvalreststromen die niet zijn te recyclen of hergebruiken.

    Hoog Rendement (HR)-afvalverbranding biedt een concurrerend alternatief voor stortplaatsen, vooral in landen waar de elektriciteitsprijzen hoog en de poortkosten voor het storten laag zijn. De HR-technologie heeft bovendien een negatieve CO2-voetafdruk. Deze technologie is tien jaar geleden succesvol ontwikkeld in Amsterdam en inmiddels als bewezen beschouwd.

    Afvalverbranding als oplossing voor vuil is niet nieuw. In Amsterdam wordt afval al meer dan een eeuw verbrand. De technologie die het Amsterdamse AWECT toepast is revolutionair omdat er meer energie uit afval is te winnen dan conventionele fabrieken dit kunnen. Meer precies, een rendementsverbetering van tussen de 30% en 50%. Tegelijkertijd zijn de emissies bijzonder laag. Omdat de uitstoot met de modernste technologie wordt gereinigd, is de kwaliteit van de lucht uit de nieuwe fabrieken zelfs beter dan de luchtkwaliteit van de gemiddelde metropool in China.

    Opwarming van de aarde
    Het inzetten van de HR-technologie is bijzonder geschikt voor landen waar restafval nog op afvalstortplaatsen belandt. Deze landfills produceren grote hoeveelheden methaan en CO2, waardoor ze niet alleen een gevaar vormen voor de volksgezondheid, maar ook contribueren aan het broeikaseffect.

    Verontrustende situaties die zich veelal voordoen in landen met een minder sterk ontwikkelde economie. Omdat in deze landen de elektriciteitsprijzen vaak hoog zijn, kan HR-afvalverbranding voorrang krijgen op de vervuilende landfill. Door de inkomsten uit de verkoop van stroom worden de kosten voor afvalverwerking voor steden en bewoners lager en goedkoper dan landfills. Bovendien levert energie uit afval een bijdrage aan de duurzame-energievoorziening van een land, met als bijvangst de reductie van de CO2-uitstoot.

    In deze landen staat het recyclen van waardevolle materialen vaak op een hoog plan, waarbij het een inkomstenbron vormt voor het kansarme deel van de bevolking. Energie uit afval is niet in competitie met deze groep en verwerkt alleen de overgebleven afvalstroom. Gesteld mag worden dat dit restafval niet verder geschikt is voor recycling, maar nog wel om energie uit terug te winnen. Daarmee is energie uit afval ook niet in competitie met recycling, maar juist wél met landfills.

    Kangda EP
    Kangda EP is een privaat bedrijf in China met een lange historie in afvalwater-management. Door samen te werken met AWECT krijgt het toegang tot kennis waarmee de internationale markt van energie-uit-afval is te betreden. Kangda koestert de ambitie om bij te dragen aan een duurzaam en schoon China.
    Voor AWECT schept de joint venture met Kangda de mogelijkheid om zich op de grote en snelgroeiende Chinese en Aziatische markt van afvalverbranding te begeven.
