The members of Energy Technologies Europe decided to join forces with ESWET, the trade association representing the suppliers of Waste-to-Energy technology. A move planned in order to provide a better contribution to the European climate neutrality plans.
Coming from a long-standing membership within Energy Technologies Europe, five companies decided in July 2020 to join ESWET: AC Boilers, Clyde Bergemann Power Group, Mitsubishi Power Europe, Sumitomo SHI FW and Valmet. In the past, the two associations already shared two companies: Andritz and Carmeuse.
Having addressed an increasing number of joint topics and activities in the last few years, discussions unfolded between the two associations on how to increase their efficiency at the EU level. Eventually, it was decided to join forces within the label of ESWET.
This strategic move will trigger a stronger activity on a variety of topics related to Waste-to-Energy. Furthermore, it will allow to provide a more relevant contribution to the European climate neutrality plans and European industry’s role in the years to come.
“By joining forces we are confident to reach a higher impact on sustainable thermal power generation in the path towards climate neutrality. We are very happy that this opportunity of growth was taken by the Energy Technologies Europe members”, added Martin Pogoreutz, Energy Technologies Europe President
“We are extremely happy to see important companies trust our association and decide to make such a strategic move. We are confident that they will provide a significant contribution to the promotion of Waste-to-Energy. A technology which has proved to be an essential feature for a sustainable treatment of non-recyclable waste in the EU”, commented Siegfried Scholz, ESWET President.
Energy Technologies Europe, the association representing the suppliers of energy conversion technologies, will end its activities at the end of the year.
ESWET – European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology can now count 26 members, coming from 9 European countries and gathering together the main players of the manufacturing Waste-to-Energy sector.
