Gen2’s focus is on greater utilization of societal resources and betterment of the environment in which we live by applying Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles to the conversion of existing waste materials into fuels, electricity and hydrogen. Extracting additional energy from these materials generates a second purpose (or second generation) for their existence, which leads to the derivation of the name Gen2. We have built our business around best-of-class, low carbon footprint, technologies to provide these solutions. Our technologies are adaptive and allow customization to optimize each specific situation. All the processes are closed loop; very low carbon footprint processes, without emissions that could harm the environment, thereby creating the ultimate waste solution.
Gen2 has created a Sustainable Energy Technology Platform with technologies that go beyond the concept of attaining zero waste, instead they achieve a generation of “net positive waste” by generating a total positive, sustainable energy source that is greater than the negative impacts required to produce energy from a waste stream. The net energy derived from processing these waste materials results in over 6, to in some instances over 30, times the energy required during processing, resulting in a very impressive Energy Positive Carbon Footprint. Gen2’s transformative waste to energy technologies change the ways in which natural resources, energy and manufactured goods can be “circularly” used, rather than inefficiently “re-purposed” or disposed. Through its utilization of waste, Gen2 is creating a pathway for a sustainable energy future. The beneficiaries of these solutions will be the cities, companies, environments and populations we serve.
