Advanced Plasma Power celebrates double win at Rushlight Awards 2012
Advanced Plasma Power (APP), the leading UK based advanced conversion waste-to-energy technology company, today announces that it has been recognised by the Rushlight Awards, the well respected clean-tech industry awards which celebrate the very best technologies and innovation in the environmental sector.
The company received two accolades at last week’s awards ceremony; the Environmental Management Award and the Clean Environment Award.
The Environmental Management Award, one of the few coveted ‘Judge’s Prizes’, voted for by a panel of highly respected figures from academia, politics and the energy sector, was awarded to APP from a shortlist of other award winners. The award recognises the technology that has done the most to reduce the environmental impact of a product or service. APP’s innovative Gasplasma® process turns refuse derived fuel into clean syngas and a solid, vitrified product , leaving no waste residues.
Advanced Plasma Power, who are based in Swindon, also took home the Clean Environment Award. This award recognises the technological development that has done the most to combat environmental contamination. APP were recognised for their contribution to the world’s first enhanced landfill mining project, which will process some 16 million tonnes of landfilled waste and return the landfill site to its natural state.
The Rushlight Awards celebrate and promote the very best of new technology, innovation and practice across the environmental sector. The awards were presented at a ceremony held on Wednesday night in London. The event was attended by a cross section of the great and the good from the environmental and green energy sector, including CEOs, investors and representatives from the UK’s leading clean technology companies.
Rolf Stein, CEO of Advanced Plasma Power, who attended the event, commented;
“It is an honour to receive these awards, voted for by our peers in the clean-tech sector. We are especially delighted to have been singled out by the judges to receive the Environmental Management Award for our Gasplasma® technology. Sustainable waste management is a growing challenge across the world, but waste is too often neglected as a material and energy resource. The Rushlight Awards bring recognition to our innovative, flexible and efficient approach to waste-to-energy, and the important role Advanced Plasma Power can play in realising a sustainable zero-waste future.”
