DONG Energy signs JV with Dutch company

05 June 2017

The Dutch company Cure Afvalbeheer and DONG Energy have just signed a joint venture agreement. With the agreement, the parties have formed a joint venture company, Cure DONG Energy REnescience BV, and they will now jointly analyse the possibilities of constructing and operating a REnescience plant in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

The joint venture agreement is a step closer to realising a REnescience plant, which will be able to convert household waste from region into green gas and ensure a high recycling rate. But before the parties reach a decision to invest, a final business case will be prepared and presented to the three Dutch municipalities Eindhoven, Geldrop-Mierlo and Valkenswaard, which own Cure.

Cure Afvalbeheer collects and handles the waste in the three Dutch municipalities Eindhoven, Geldrop-Mierlo and Valkenswaard.

In Northwich in the UK, DONG Energy is constructing the first commercial REnescience plant for converting residual waste into green energy and recyclable materials. The construction is expected to be commissioned in the Q2 2017.
