There is an increasing global awareness that the waste problem needs to be solved in a sustainable way. New waste separation techniques are being implemented, and R&D programs focus on much more than waste-technology alone. The importance of biomass is recognized as a potential high-energy source for electricity and biogas. DMT’s ambitious approach is based on the principles of circular economy and cradle to cradle: waste products are in fact very valuable. We constantly investigate new ways in which to approach ‘waste’ from a different perspective, how to best use or reuse certain products, and where to create new markets and demands.

What are siloxanes?
The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas generated is a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds are often present in products such as shampoo and cosmetics, as well as industrial products and lubricants, and they move into land-fill. These volatile compounds find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes.
