TGE Tech Turns Trash into Electricity; Plans Pilot Programs

Maayan Venture’s portfolio company TGE Tech has “developed and patented a system whereby unrecycled refuse can be converted into fuel with a special patented device that turns garbage into gas – syngas, a well-known element that has some of the properties of gas, oil and coal,” according to Israel21c. The technology addresses a huge environmental problem — trash — whlie at the same time supplying “green energy”. While not as efficient as oil or coal, the electricity provided by TGE can be sold at a premium as part of government incentive programs.

A pilot program near Tel Aviv has been setup and a much larger program in Israel is being planned that will convert up to 200 tons of garbage per day into electricity. More systems are being planned for some South American and European countries.
