Boson Energy has inked a deal to produce power and heat out of medical waste in the US.
The Grevenmacher-based outfit, which builds localised plants that convert waste into energy, said on 12 September that it formed a joint venture with Approved Storage & Waste Hauling, which collects and treats medical waste from “over 8,000” customer sites.
Boson and ASW said they agreed “to build and operate their first plant together in the northeast US” and outlined “a map to jointly develop a minimum of 20 plants across the country.”
Boson is also developing commercial projects in Germany, India, Israel, Mexico, Poland and the UK. On its website, Boson cited a Grand View Research study that projected the “advanced thermal treatment” market could reach $17.5bn by 2024.
