Working in steel manufacturing, power generation, cement production and brickmaking, WKE is on target to help industries realise their decarbonisation ambitions. Our solid improved recovered fuel (SIRF) pellets can be used like conventional fuel, without major changes to industrial processes. We understand the needs of high-energy users, and the challenges they face when it comes to bringing down carbon emissions. Our SIRF pellets provide a reliable, workable solution.
We’re excited about the future of energy
For some time now, the energy debate has been polarised. Good, bad. Saint, sinner. The conversation around supporting heavy industry with realistic fuel alternatives has struggled to be heard as the focus has been on other renewable energy sources that aren’t necessarily appropriate for high-energy users. We want to re-energise the energy debate and make it positive and realistic.
Our pellets consist of non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste diverted from landfill. They are easy to transport and store and are a cleaner product when compared with loose and bailed solid recovered fuel (SRF). Everything we produce is independently tested by an accredited laboratory to ensure specification and quality.
Plus, due to the high biomass content (>50%), WKE’s SIRF pellets are a permitted CfD fuel, and using them significantly reduces CO2 when compared with coal and natural gas. We have strong relationships with all of the UK’s major SRF producers and brokers, meaning we can ensure a consistent supply.
