Chinook Sciences Crowned Green Apple Champions

Chinook Sciences, the leading clean-tech renewable technology company, announced today that it was crowned the UK’s Green Champion for 2014 at the prestigious Green Apple Awards in the Fuel, Power and Energy category.  Chinook won the award for the RODECS®, its patented and proven Advanced Thermal Treatment process for metal recycling and renewable energy generation. The company achieved the highest score in its category, holding off a strong challenge from more than 400 other companies. Harry Perry, Chinook’s Technical Director was presented with the award at a ceremony held at the Houses of Parliament in London.

Judges were impressed with how the RODECS® is used to process and ultimately, reduce the 27m tonnes of residual waste left over from the UK’s domestic, commercial and industrial waste streams. RODECS® will enable much of this waste to be treated in Chinook’s plants using the best available and proven environmental technology to recover all the valuable metal and aggregates, and generate energy from the remaining fraction. In doing so, it will significantly boost the amount of residual waste that is diverted from landfill sites.  

Dr Rifat Chalabi, Chairman and CEO of Chinook Sciences, said, ‘RODECS® really is cutting-edge technology and we are delighted that it has been recognised on the world stage by The Green Organisation. It is a special honour for our technology to have been picked out as a leader in such a distinguished field.’

RODECS® is based on a highly optimised process that enables the full conversion of waste hydrocarbons into syngas which can be used as a clean fuel. In addition, it significantly reduces process heat loss resulting in the highest thermal conversion efficiency among thermal treatment technologies, making it the world’s leading advanced thermal Energy from Waste (EfW) system.

The Green Organisation is an independent, non-political, non-activist, not-for-profit environmental group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice globally.

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become well established as one of the major environmental recognition schemes, both in the UK and internationally.
