Renewi is a leading international waste-to-product business. The Group uses a range of cost-effective sustainable technologies to make valuable products from what is thrown away. Renewi produces green energy, recovered fuel, recycled commodities and organic fertilizer. Renewi meets the growing need from public and private sectors to manage waste sustainably without damaging the environment. Its solutions reduce greenhouse gas emissions, recycle natural resources and limit fossil fuel dependency.
Renewi operates in three divisions that reflect the markets: Hazardous, Commercial and Municipal. It has operations in the Netherlands, Belgium, UK and Canada and employs around 3,500 people.
Renewi is currently the coordinator of project MINERVE, a large scale R&D project focusing on landfill management. Partly financed by the Walloon Region (Belgium), the project aims to shorten the lifecycle of waste and upgrades the buried waste to alternative fuel solutions and energy. The project is based on a 3 axis model: characterization, mineralization and landfill mining. Renewi is leading a consortium of 2 multinational companies, 4 departments from 2 major universities, 1 research center and 1 SME through the different stages of the project.
