Yesterday Fernando Centeno, Head of Research Planning at Exergy presented #waste2energy Medellin.
Colombia is moving towards non-conventional renewable energy sources. According to the Chamber of Large Consumers of Energy and Gas- ANDI (National association of businessmen of Colombia), 56% of the large energy consumers are interested in energy self-generation schemes with non-conventional renewable sources.
Exergy proposes an industrial symbiosis and will open a branch in Colombia soon in collaboration with Ruta N, Medellin which is the Center for Innovation and Business in the city and the British Embassy in Colombia.
“We are excited about this initiative which drives us to accomplish our goal of a Low-Carbon, Sustainable Future. We are also looking forward to presenting the results of the project tomorrow Dec 1st at the Workshop: How to transform municipal solid waste into Energy. The holistic approach we propose is getting the interest of local authorities and organisations that face the current challenges of the waste treatment in Medellin”, says Fernando Centeno and Gustavo Martinez, Project Manager at Exergy.
