Sustainable fuels and power for sustainable business
Convergen Energy, formerly Greenwood Fuels, was the Libra Group's first investment in the US renewable energy sector and is part of a sustainability chain that repurposes non-recyclable raw materials and by-products as renewable fuel.
It has a strong track record in providing solutions for municipal power plants, industrial facilities, and other energy-intensive user institutions as they strive to avoid landfilling materials, find fossil fuel alternatives, utilize alternative energy sources, and meet ever-increasing environmental regulatory requirements. The company works extensively with sustainability managers throughout the US to manage carbon footprint reduction programs.
Serving sustainability managers who face ever-increasing environmental regulatory requirements.” — Ted Hansen, CEO Convergen Energy
Convergen’s cost-effective fuel alternatives can be used as a substitute for traditional fossil fuels in industrial power plants, to meet both economic and environmental objectives.
They work with the industrial and farming sectors and divert manufacturing process by-products from landfill and make use of agricultural residues that are normally discarded. These cleaner fuels are burn-ready pellets with lower emissions yet the same properties as coal.
Active in the development and promotion of sustainable power sources and the growth of the renewable energy sector as a whole, Convergen is investing in leased, owned, or contracted power and steam generation facilities to complement its existing operations. They own and operates multiple clean and renewable power generation facilities globally, including newly acquired biogas facilities in Latvia.
