After winning the Israeli Energy Tech All-Star in February 2023, Co-Energy received a VIP ticket to present at the Energy Tech Summit 2023, held in Warsaw, Poland on 26-27 April 2023.

The presentation was part of the Summit’s challenge for startup companies to show case new pathways to decarbonize and reach the target of annually removing 1 gigaton of carbon-dioxide from the atmosphere.

One of Co-Energy’s line of operation is converting organic waste to biochar, which is a great soil fertilizer that also sequesters carbon. Carbon sequestration with biochar is considered permanent and of high quality, making it especially attractive in the voluntary carbon markets.

Through its in-line continuous process, Co-Energy is able to convert millions of tons of biodegradable waste into biochar, meeting the 1 gigaton target quite easily.

As presented in the Summit, converting waste to energy holds many benefits: It is the most cost-effective method for waste treatment; it avoids future emissions in addition to removing already emitted greenhouse gases; it reduces scope 2 and scope 3 emissions as well; and it solves a huge problem of waste management.

Co-Energy is proud to be an industry leader in designing and creating technological solutions for converting different types of waste to a variety of energetic outputs.

Co-Energy is a proud sponsor of the Wall Street Green Summit 2022, held online during the final week of March 2022. During the fourth day of the Summit on March 31st, in the morning panel dedicated to discussing ClimateTech Solutions and Innovations Day, Co-Energy’s COO Ms. Aviv Dekel presented Co-Energy’s perception on connecting the dots between waste treatment, clean energy production, and de-carbonization.

In her presentation, Aviv discussed how waste treatment technologies need to breakthrough existing methods, while committing to rigorous environmental standards and abandoning old solutions such as landfilling or incineration. In parallel, clean energy production must present a cost-effective model which meets current challenges such as Hydrogen production at 2$ per Kg, energy storage and fuel production not based on fossils. And the thirds vector of the cleantech industry is the de-carbonization goals, which need to expand, greatly expand, and realize the true potential of net negative technologies.

And all three of those vectors must work together in a cost-effective business model otherwise they’ll stay as distant dreams. If we can achieve a fast return on investment on a waste-to-energy system that also generates net negative – it’s a win-win-win situation. For sustainable technologies to work they need to be green in profits, not only in environmental terms. Co-Energy’s presentation is available on YouTube, and we look forward to continue the dialogue on the cleantech industry, its challenges and amazing leap forward.
