Denmark-headed biogas technology developer and turnkey solutions provider Xergi A/S has announced that it has launched a new partnership with Sumitomo Seika Chemicals Co. Ltd to address the “attractive market” for renewable energy in Japan. Sumitomo Seika is a strong player in the Japanese absorbent chemicals and industrial gases markets.
According to a statement, Xergi has seen a good potential emerging for establishing biogas plants for handling organic waste materials and producing renewable energy in Japan.
We are happy to announce, that we have teamed up with Sumitomo Seika to be able to address the market in Japan, so now we are able to offer full turnkey solutions for the Japanese market, said Jørgen Ballermann, CEO of Xergi.
Asia a major growth region
The cooperation between Sumitomo Seika and Xergi will utilise the synergies between Sumitomo Seika’s gas engineering know-how in Japan and Xergi’s biogas technology platform. Asia is considered a major growth region in the biogas industry and Xergi has over a period been focusing on addressing the market in Asia, and several countries are currently being targeted.
In Japan, the demand for a stable supply of renewable energy into the grid is a very important element in the development of the biogas industry and biogas is increasingly being considered the right choice of technology for an environmentally friendly and sustainable solution for waste handling of organic waste.
According to Xergi, the cooperation with Sumitomo Seika is already off to a good start, and the pipeline of projects for the full line of products which Xergi offers together with Sumitomo Seika is very strong.
This includes full turnkey biogas plants, design and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), together with full support for project development, plant start-up and commissioning, the supply of spare parts and service packages such as operations and maintenance, surveillance, and biological support.
