Swift TG Solutions has been working with Standard Gas on a game-changing waste to energy project for several years, and earlier this year, we won a multi million contract to build the SG100, a transformational technology that will help mitigate climate change and help alleviate the UKs energy crisis.

Standard Gas SG100 technology harnesses the energy in the rich resources society currently discards, while removing carbon to help protect the planet. Utilising patented advanced thermal cracking technology, the SG100 transforms a vast range of non-recyclable wastes into a clean synthesis gas (syngas) and biochar, which captures and removes carbon. The process is carbon-negative, and as it doesn’t burn waste, has no problematic emissions.
Today, most non-recyclable wastes are burnt or buried, adding to environmental issues and atmospheric CO2. The SG100 is a low-cost, sustainable alternative to landfill and incineration.
Processing up to 48,000 tonnes of waste a year, the tennis court-size plant can generate up to 40,000 megawatt hours of clean power for businesses, properties and homes, and remove up to 18,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
With market-leading ‘End of Waste’ certification from the UK’s Environment Agency, the SG100’s syngas can be used to generate electricity, steam and heat, or processed via methanation into transportation fuels, chemical feedstock, and for grid injection. Coupled with electrolysis, the SG100 can generate over 650 tonnes of green hydrogen a year.
Standard Gas’ Technical Director, Laurence Sharrock, says: “Swift has played a vital role in the design and development of the SG100, which in future will make an important contribution to achieving Net Zero carbon emissions”
