Billionpeople PLC is working on its IPO in London and New York in 2022. We have successfully completed our proof of concept and are now building our first production site for the wind blades recycling in the Netherlands with a capacity of 100 tons per year. The plan is  to increase our processing capacity year after year on a non-linear scale and we plan to set-up these facilities worldwide to address this market need.

RESULTS

Expected results:

During its lifetime, the project is expected to:

  • Contribute to greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions of more than 14 000 tons COequiv.;
  • Waste reduction of 1 750 tons;
  • Demonstrate pollutant removal in indoor air, biogas and water with products that use activated carbon produced/regenerated using the proposed technology.

The project contributes towards the implementation of the Water Framework Directive by offering a cheaper and environmentally more beneficial alternative to produce and regenerate activated carbon used in the treatment of wastewater. It is expected to bring to market financially viable technology that will prevent waste generation, by converting waste into high-value products that are commonly used and have a significant market demand.
