Transforming Waste into Energy in a Sustainable Manner
CEE’s primary mission is to launch and develop carefully selected projects that transform organic waste materials into clean forms of energy or fuels, and introduce technologies that have a positive impact in creating a cleaner environment globally.
WHY CLEAN ENERGY
WASTE: A WORLD
Clean Energy Enterprises is a holding company that operates and manages two wholly owned subsidiaries, each with a specific purpose:
Clean Energy Industries (CEI): System Manufacturing.
CEI provides a full range of system manufacturing services for clean energy solutions.
- Industrialization of lab-proven processes
- Feasibility Studies
- Concept and Detailed Engineering
- Procurement, Construction and Commissioning
The founding project for CEE is Ways2H, a non-incineration Waste-to-Energy solution developed over the past 15 years by Japan Blue Energy Company (JBEC).
The Ways2H process provides clean conversion of chemically organic waste into hydrogen with virtually zero emissions, in a continuous, predictable and, due to the process specifics, stable manner. Easily scalable in size from transportable 1 ton/day to stationary 50 tons/day processing capacity, this system also significantly improves the waste and hydrogen logistics by making short circuit, point of production solutions a reality.
CEI directly manages Ways2H, Inc., a joint venture company with JBEC. This company provides the full technology supply chain to implement the Ways2H process.
Clean Energy Development(CED): Solutions sales and operation
Our team of experts proposes packaged Waste-to-Energy (W2E) solutions to communities or industrial site operators who are facing an organic waste management challenge.
While we will usually transfer ownership and operation upon commissioning, we are also ready to manage selected projects transforming biomass and other forms of organic waste into clean energy under Build-Own-Operate (BOO) agreements.
As of today, our solutions architecture is primarily based on the Ways2H process, the advanced gasification technology developed by our partner, Japan Blue Energy Company.
