Fuelling industry and mitigating climate change
At WKE, we have made it our mission to develop a waste-derived alternative fuel that stands up to the challenges faced by heavy industry, including cement, power, steel and brick.
Used as part of your carbon-reduction journey or in place of conventional fuel altogether, solid improved recovered fuel (SIRF) pellets can help heavy industries boost their ESG profiles and make the world a greener place.
“Our goal is to produce a quality, stable and compliant fuel which will enable our customers to enhance their ESG scores with a cleaner energy at a lower cost.” – Ian Jones – CEO
SIRF pellets have a significantly lower cost per gigajoule of energy, and the raw material is sourced locally.
SIRF pellets offer stability in terms of specification and price, and benefits for companies reporting on ESG scores.
Gate fees for SRF could peter out. SIRF pellets offer a more consistent and ecological solution.
As a substitute for natural gas in brickmaking, there are significant pollution-reducing benefits to using SIRF pellets.
