GreenWatt was founded in 2004 as a spin-off of the Belgian Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), and designs, develops, commercializes and maintains locally integrated turn-key biogas installations for the agro-food and beverage industry. The biogas can be used as fuel in combined heat/power engines (cogeneration) or can be upgraded to natural gas quality bio-methane for injection in the grid.
GreenWatt’s solution is a multistage anaerobic digestion process using proprietary technology that redefines the benchmarks for robustness, process stability and feed flexibility. Moreover, its installations enable the flexible digestion of organic waste without requiring the addition of animal manure, making them particularly well-suited for food-industry sites and allowing for valorization of the remaining fraction as bio-fertilizer. Target customers are farmers, food & beverage companies, food service companies, food retail and sustainable biomass users. Today, the company has a local footprint in the Benelux and France and has the ambition to further expand internationally.
