Waga Energy upgrades landfill gas into grid-compliant Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), also known as “biomethane”. Thanks to its patented WAGABOX® technology, Waga Energy recovers the methane emitted by the breakdown of organic matter contained in the waste to inject it directly into the gas grid. The result of ten years of R&D within Air Liquide and Waga Energy, the WAGABOX® technology combines membrane filtration and cryogenic distillation to separate the methane from the other components of the landfill gas. It provides high-quality biomethane that is injected directly into the gas grid. The purification units are fully automated, they operate 24/7 while being under remote computerized supervision.
Waga Energy deploys this solution through a dedicated business model. Waga Energy purchases landfill gas from landfill site operators, funds the construction and operation of WAGABOX® units, and sales biomethane to energy utilities.
Waga Energy operates ten WAGABOX® units in France. They supply 35,000 households and avoid the emission of 45,000 tons of CO2eq per year into the atmosphere. Nine more WAGABOX® units are under construction in France, Spain and Canada.
Waga Energy's headquarters are located in Meylan, near Grenoble (France), a world-renowned center for high-tech innovation with a reputation for leadership in gas engineering and cryogenics. Waga Energy also has subsidiaries in the United States, Canada and Spain.
