AcuComm's WasteView PROJECTS
The Waste Industry is new on a global and industrial scale, consequently, no standard industry product or activity interpretation or categorisation existed. Therefore, AcuComm has found it necessary to develop a categorisation from scratch and build it into the raw database, as well as in to the research process.
To this end we have identified a series of key indicators, including monetary values, throughput capacity, power generation, geographic scope, types of technology used, types of waste feedstock involved and companies/professional individuals involved.
This enables us to build a unique picture of waste investments, in the recent past, and looking forward into the future. Forecasting future levels of investment is a key element and aim of this process.
The raw data in the database is valuable in itself, but we have also developed a set of MS Excel analytics which turns the information into quantifiable comparative data for business intelligence. We have created a series of analytic models which turn out database into an easily-understood means of quantifying investment in the waste market. We have made significant improvements to the forecasting and estimation of data that gave us the ability to show a more complete and accurate snapshot of the Global Waste/Recycling markets.

On 19th September 2018, BTS Biogas signed a contract with Seeds Energy Group for the construction of a biogas plant in Pergamino under the Plan RenovAr renewable energy development programme. The plant will utilise up to 50,000 tonnes per annum of agricultural industry by-products and other plant/animal biomass to produce biogas which will be used to generate 2.4 MW of electricity. Construction started on 12th December.
Seeds Energy Group is investing US$13 million in the project, which is being supported through a loan from Banco Itaú, the largest private bank in Latin America.
The plant will have a 20-year tariff for the electricity fed into the grid. Particular attention will be given to pre-treatment, with mechanical shredding and homogenisation of the substrates in order to optimise the production of methane and facilitate the handling of biomass in the fermenters.
A by-product of the process will be a liquid and solid organic fertiliser, rich in basic nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, calcium, magnesium and iron, which will be used on local farms.
On 10th January 2019, BTS Biogas reported that construction is progressing steadily, with the start of electro-mechanical installation expected in February, for completion in June/July. The plant is due to go into operation by September/October.
