Waga Energy completes 11th WAGABOX project in its portfolio


Waga Energy, a clean technology and renewable natural gas company announced this Friday it has launched and completed its eleventh top-notch technology project that produces renewable natural gas from landfill gas.

Firstly, this technology by Waga Energy gets the name of the WAGABOX, a trademarked technology that produces low carbon or negative carbon fuels versus the traditional fossil fuels-based ones. The company has been deploying this technology worldwide since last year.

Moreover, earlier this month, the company announced it had deployed its first WAGABOX in the United States. The project will be located in New York and would enter operations around March 2023.

In addition, the US project will purify 1,000 scfm (1,600 m3/h) of landfill gas to deliver 207,000 mmBtu (60 GWh) of Renewable Natural Gas. Such an amount would be equivalent to supplying around 4,000 households in the state.

Consequently, today’s announcement reflects the strong pace at which Waga Energy has been expanding its solutions all over the world. The startup of the newest WAGABOX will happen at a site run by Société d’Exploitation de Gournay (SEG) in Gournay, France. Each year the unit will produce 51,180 mmBtu (15 GWh) of RNG.

Furthermore, the output will go directly into the gas grid; which is run by French operator GRDF and will supply around 3,000 households in the Châteauroux area (Centre France).

On the other hand, as outlined above, the WAGABOX is the patented and trademark technology from the company. The device separates methane from the other components in the landfill gas (carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, and volatile organic compounds). It combines membrane filtration and cryogenic distillation to produce high-quality RNG.

Additionally, Waga Energy funded entirely the construction and the device; and will also operate the facility under a 15-year contract with SEG. On the other hand, the Gournay landfill site receives 85,000 tons of waste each year.

Finally, Mathieu Lefebvre, CEO, said about the matter. “This new project with SEG is a further step in our action to tackle climate change. Our WAGABOX(R) units now represent an annual production capacity of 819,000 mmBtu (240 GWh) and prevent 49,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions each year.”
