SWEDEN - Israeli Firm Turns Waste into Energy

Arno Froese

An Israeli clean technology to produce electricity and “green” methanol continuously from nonrecyclable waste will be powering a local energy production facility at Wallhamn Port in Tjörn, Sweden—one of the largest vehicle handling ports in northern Europe.

Boson Energy, an Israel-Swedish-Polish company, will build the plant to serve Wallhamn’s growing need for energy and electricity for charging vehicles unloaded in the port, as well as supporting the local power grid when needed.

Both the electricity and fuel will be carbon negative, as Boson Energy’s process makes it possible to capture carbon dioxide, for utilization or storage, in a clean and cost-effective way.

The only solid residue from the conversion process is a glass slag that can be used as an environmentally friendly filling material, or further processed into climate-smart insulation material.

“The project will cut straight into sectors where it is difficult to decarbonize, such as marine fuels, chemical industry, fertilizers and ultimately even local food production with high-efficiency greenhouses. This project will become a global template that is relevant not only for ports, but also for cities and any kinds of ‘islands’—all of which face problems of energy access, costs and fossil fuel footprints,” said Jan Grimbrandt, founder and CEO of Boson Energy.

Arno's Commentary

With a population of 10.5 million, Sweden is considered one of the super-successful nations of the world. Their per capita GDP, according to the CIA Factbook, stands at $53,600, with a life expectancy of 82.8 years. Religiously, 57.6% is registered as Lutheran, but a large percentage—33.5%—is unspecified, often meaning agnostic or atheist.

What seems somewhat peculiar is that this highly developed nation seeks Israeli expertise.

We note the words, “This project will become a global template.” That confirms Israel has the unique know-how regarding such energy projects.

Israel’s significance is revealed by the heathen prophet Balaam in Numbers 24:17: “I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.”
