Commenting on her appointment, Irene notes: “Standard Gas’ team really stands out with their technical expertise and modular plant design, but also with their vision to become a fundamental player in the decarbonization path the world needs to follow. Their approach not only contributes to CO2 removal and clean energy production, but also supports increased recycling of waste, which is another sector that will evolve in the future to become more sustainable.”


Lyn says, “In the face of global climate change, the world needs technologies that help to
achieve Net Zero. Standard Gas’ SG100, which has local and global application, can play an
important part in driving us towards a decarbonized Circular Economy. We need to stop
wasting waste, and the SG100 does that, turning residual wastes we can’t recycle into a
source of alternative energy. Plus, we create valuable end-products from the removed
carbon resource.”
