On this page: WCP leading principles; links to projects information; the services we offer
WCP's Services are based on:
- Minimising carbon emissions from its projects
- Ensuring that its projects have the optimum environmental profile (including the minimisation of gaseous and particulate emissions)
- Minimising non-recycled solid residues
- Enhancing thermal and electrical efficiency and production of additional high-value products
- Implementing robust and future-proofed projects
- Thinking outside the box in generating project concepts
- Non-dependence on single waste streams
Waste-to-value project development is our staple activity. We navigate the various elements required for successfully developing and implementing a project with a view to minimising costs. We currently outsource key work whilst we consolidate our in-house capabilities.
WCP’s mature experience of complex project development is enhanced by its extensive knowledge of associated markets and their dynamics; technologies and process engineering; project lifecycle, structuring and delivery; and supply chains. This is bolstered by a wide experience of project financing and identification and mitigation of project risks.
WCP’s approach to conceptualisation, development and implementation of solutions involves detailed and comprehensive analysis and produces customised outputs. Our own thought leadership combined with the integration of leading academic research results in financeable, reliable and adaptable innovation using proven, robust and bankable advanced technologies.
Waste Processing and Recovery
WCP seeks to offer waste processing and recovery as a service to local, national and international producers and shippers. It has therefore aimed to maximise the robustness of its plant concepts and their front-end capabilities for reception, pre-processing and storage of a wide range of received waste streams. Anticipated feedstock mixes for its plants are unlikely to disrupt market supply dynamics due to the relative proportions of each feedstock and its fair gate fee expectations means that it offers longevity for its waste suppliers. Our plants will be responsive to market needs while fulfilling them in a transparent manner.
Financing and Sustainable Investment Platform
WCP seeks to develop its projects to encompass environmental, social and community needs, whilst also providing long-term, stable and predictable cash flows and returns for its investors. In particular, WCP seeks to implement projects that are true exemplars in mitigating climate change. To achieve this, WCP plans to redefine waste-to-energy and waste-to-value projects and their financing and implementation, in accordance with the principles of a circular economy.
WCP seeks to leverage its financing knowledge and experience in also innovating the most efficient funding structures for construction of its projects.
WCP has deep knowledge of waste-to-energy (WtE) technologies, their utilisation and their engineering basis. This enables the further enhancement and distillation of the inputs of its expert engineering advisers. WCP conducts the most rigorous evaluation and screening of all credible WtE and associated technologies with different feedstocks.
WCP’s technology neutrality means that it selects the most appropriate technology for each project and this confers versatility and generates added value through the interaction of technologies and processes.
The prerequisite for considering any technology is a proven operating record with the envisaged feedstock and the proposed project size, while also considering eventual maintainability and operability in its technology evaluation.
WCP’s perspective on future proofed and differentiated projects results in the generation of a wide range of valuable products. Currently these include:
- Heat (or steam), cooling and electrical power.
- Recycled or repurposed ash
- High-value products produced by the pyrolysis process
- Captured CO2
- Potential H2 generation
