Company History

The Beginnings…

ENTECH-Renewable Energy Technologies Pty Ltd is a privately owned company.  It commenced operations in 1990 after its senior management developed a basic and crude gasification system, which stemmed from the senior managements previous involvement in thermal treatment systems.  At this time the basic gasification system was successfully applied to easy and consistent type wastes/fuels (paper, cardboard, wood, etc), so as to produce syn-gas and fire boilers and other energy generating plants.  ENTECH™ has always been a business solely dedicated to its technology and subsequently increased their relatively unique low temperature gasification technology application base through R&D, product development and product refinement.

With a “step-by-step” approach to gaining experience, an enviable international reputation has been gained over the last approx 15 years for successful application of the WtGas technology to a wide variety of wastes/fuels including:

  • Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
  • Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)
  • Various biomasses
  • Industrial and commercial wastes
  • Infectious wastes
  • Petrochemical wastes

The Long Road to Success…

The road to full commercial exploitation of innovative technology sometimes isn’t an easy road to tread and at times in the past this has been the case for ENTECH™. That is, the company's business of production of a non-fossil fuel alternative (syn-gas) to fire boilers and energy generating plants was somewhat ahead of its time. During most the 1990s the concepts of clean energy, renewable energy, greenhouse gas reduction, etc were issues of scepticism that were widely talked about, but rarely acted upon.

As such, the early 1990’s market for our WtGas technology was primarily driven by waste and not energy, that is, customers who had a need for waste disposal (i.e. the energy generation aspect was mostly considered a side-benefit).  This somewhat limited application to the 1-70 tonne per day project range; being mostly remote or environmentally sensitive locations (isolated communities, islands, etc), where the common and “cheap” form of waste management of haulage and landfill wasn’t available or possible. It was also a highly desired alternative to incineration, which has since become a solution of last resort.

Now the Technology of Choice…

Nowadays however, the sustainable and renewable energy market has come full circle and clean-energy, renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction are issues of world-wide concern and action. WtGas technology is now a sustainable and renewable energy technology of choice by governments and industry alike and this is confirmed by a growing number of independent environmental studies and reports.  The momentum behind sustainable and renewable energy is such that it's supported by government incentives including grants, tax concessions and in some jurisdictions carbon credits.

Added to this momentum is that the WtGas technology has evolved into the ENTECH-Tru-RES™, which offers a sustainable solution to total waste utilisation and landfill diversion. As such… A total waste utilisation solution… A renewable energy solution… What better solution to waste management is there?
