No shocks as the SG100 gets a major power upgrade

As our engineering and operations team power on with the initial commissioning of the SG100, the guys oversaw the powering-up process with the installation of a new transformer and control and distribution panel for the plant at North Norfolk’s Scottow Enterprise Park.

A two-day process began with all power shut off at 6pm on a Friday. Our team of bright sparks and those from specialist contractor, Sitek, then worked through the weekend to ensure the old transformer and control panel were removed, new cables and new units installed, power restored, and the new system fully and successfully tested by 6.30pm on the Sunday.

As Commissioning Engineering Manager, Russell Ford, notes: “This is another major milestone in our quest to get the SG100 up and running.”


Renewable, carbon-negative electricity, biogas, transport fuels, green hydrogen, chemical feedstock, carbon-removing biochar, transformational waste management and…and…and
Our SG100 technology produces affordable, clean, carbon-negative energy, while capturing and removing carbon, and transforming waste management for the Circular Economy.
Our carbon removing technology has wide-scale commercial, transportation and industrial applications across value chains.

Carbon Negative Energy: Each year, a single SG100 plant can generate up to 40,000 MW hours of carbon-negative power, enough for around 10,000 homes, offices or commercial properties, as well as for the transportation sector and wider industry.

Carbon Reduction: It will remove up to 25,000 tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 5,000 cars. With electrolysis, a plant processing biogenic waste will generate over 650 tonnes of green hydrogen. And the SG100 closes the waste management loop, offering a better low carbon alternative to landfill and incineration.

Carbon Capture: TheSG100 technology also generates ‘biochar’ and ‘carbon char’, a black, granular, dust-like co- product that can be sequestered in valuable agricultural, environmental, and industrial applications.

Our Mission is to significantly contribute in mitigating and reversing climate change’s negative environmental, social and economic impacts.
