WA3RM works to develop and finance so-called regenerative operations that reuse residual flows from major industries. These may be based on resources such as surplus heat and CO2, but also about other flows, such as industrial sludge and wastewater. We call this “waste-to-X”.
We focus on large, energy-intensive, industries with well-developed and efficient operations. These produce a steady flow of surplus streams that represent challenges in terms of sustainability and that are often costly for the industry to handle within its own sphere. These flows can represent important resources for external actors, which is one of the core aspects of WA3RM’s offering.
WA3RM’s business concept is to capture surplus streams from major industries and use these to create and finance regenerative, often food-producing businesses where the circular element is dominant. The climate issue is the biggest challenge of our time and needs industrial-scale solutions for real, rapid and decisive effect (according to the International Energy Agency, industry accounts for over 18% of all CO2 emissions in the world). We can no longer continue to be blind to the creeping change, but, as during the Corona crisis, we must find fast, mature and sustainable solutions that have a lasting effect on the climate.
