Integrated Green Energy Solutions Ltd (ASX: IGE) is a frontrunner in developing sustainable technology to generate energy from the end of life non-recyclable plastics. The company is engaged in producing a range of fuels and products, including Naphtha, Marine fuel, Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) and Road-Ready Transport Fuels such as EN590 (Road Ready Diesel) and EN228 (Road Ready Petrol). It is positioned as the only company in the world that can deliver road-ready fuels from the end of life plastics without further refinement, blending or processing.
IGES technology coupled with ground-breaking plastics-to-fuel patents and the unwavering support of Port of Amsterdam has made it win the IAPH World Ports Sustainability Awards for the year (Climate and Energy division). The WPSP program demonstrated initiatives of ports across the world in contributing towards United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The award was organised by the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) at a gala dinner during the 2019 IAPH World Ports Conference in Guangzhou, China on 9 May 2019.
IGES Executive Chairman Paul Dickson stated that the win is a strong validation by experts and the company’s peers around the world that IGES patented technology can effectively tackle the worldwide crisis of the end of life plastics going to oceans, landfill, and incineration.
The award honors the company for establishing world’s first facility located in Port of Amsterdam that integrates the proven science on sustainable technology with patents in Australia. This patented technology converts end of life, non-recyclable plastics destined for landfills into clean road-ready fuels that meet international standards such as EN228 (petrol) and EN590 (diesel) and Naptha.

On the capacity front, the plant has a permit to process 100 tonnes (per day) of plastics to generate 35 million litres of fuel annually that requires no additional blending, processing, or refining, unlike its peers. It eventually could process up to 400 tonnes per day to produce 140 million litres of fuel, thereby creating a sustainable future across the globe.
