SEaB Energy, the developer of an anaerobic digestion system that produces energy from organic waste, has won the opportunity to forge a partnership with Shimizu Corporation, one of Japan’s largest civil engineering, construction and architecture companies.
Representatives of SEaB Energy are now invited to Shimizu’s NOVARE innovation facility in Singapore to explore collaboration arrangements with the corporation.
This was the outcome of a reverse pitch held in London, involving 10 UK scale-ups vying to solve a ‘net zero building’ challenge posed by Shimizu.
It was organised by the UK-APAC Tech Growth Programme, which helps high-growth technology companies to explore and secure commercial opportunities in the APAC region.
At the start of the event, representatives from Shimizu set out their plans to collaborate with UK tech companies to advance the corporation’s ‘Vision of 2030’ sustainable business strategy.
Each of the 10 companies – selected from among the UK’s leading sustainability tech startups – then presented how its technology could support Shimizu’s vision, before participating in a Q&A session.
Shimizu selected SEaB Energy as the winner because of its innovative, compact, easy-to-install anaerobic digestion systems housed in shipping containers, according to the company.
The systems are already being installed globally, both by SEaB Energy directly and through distribution and licensing agreements.
Sandra Sassow, SEaB Energy’s CEO, said: “We’re thrilled that Shimizu recognised the value creation opportunity of using sustainable energy and reducing CO2 emissions via our waste-to-energy technology.
"Our various-sized platforms and the significant reduction in emissions they deliver will help Shimizu win new construction orders and further promote the use of electricity derived from renewable energy sources. This aligns with the corporation’s ‘Vision of 2030’ to realise a sustainable society."
