Richard Harland: Waste2ES Is a Green Technology Company That Empowers Businesses Across Multiple Sectors To Play Their Part in the Green Energy Movement

September 26, 2022

Waste2ES is a green technology company that empowers businesses across multiple sectors to play their part in the green energy movement with our onsite aerobic and anaerobic digesters, wastewater treatment products, and smart bin lifting solutions.

Our VISION is that our clients are enabled to convert costs into revenues wherever possible — without hampering the environment or worker safety. Our MISSION is to provide a holistic suite of innovative technologies to reduce the adverse environmental impact and Scope 3 carbon emissions.

Tell us about yourself?

My early career was in Aerospace engineering but the main part of my formative years was in the armed services. I’m an engineer with a passion for renewables and resource management and stumbled into the food waste issue whilst working in oil and gas.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Surround yourself with like minded people, collaborate in innovation, don’t try and rule the world single-handedly.

What problem does your business solve?

We contribute to solving the energy crisis by utilising local resources locally and deploying the energy outcomes locally. We reduce the environmental impact of food waste and the logistical carbon footprint.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

It is clear that we have to find a way to LOCALISE whatever we do with the waste we produce. And organics (food waste) is a prime example of why we have developed iD-R and dNa-AD systems.

Centralised processing gives little, if anything, back to the community and large AD is typical of this problem. Our community-based systems are truly circular in that we treat, convert and return the energy back into the locality benefiting the community 100%.

What is your magic sauce?

All of our technology offers are designed and built with longevity and environmental security in mind. We believe in community and energy independence

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

Our aim is to decentralise food waste management and localise the benefits of the energy benefits. We want to see local authorities power community buildings/spaces from a resource they currently pay to have taken away. This will underpin an economic resurgence in local communities

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

CASH, we have invested heavily in our campaign to bring community energy to the top of people’s wish list, we have survived the COVID period and are grateful to have lost none of our people.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

We want communities to buy into helping themselves, we want public services to engage in de-centralisation and be open to making the most of available resources and most of all to reducing dependence on centralised energy production.

We are a renewable energy technology company, invest in us, invest in the community.
