Who we are

Who we are


GreenMine waste carbonization plants (WCPs) process unsorted waste, emissions free, into marketable offtakes such as mineral recyclables, biochar, bio-coal, pyroligneous extract (which can be separated into tar, lignin, acidic water and bio-oils), electricity, and heat. We also expect, that carbon credits will be a bi-product.

Whilst the waste carbonization technology is both environmentally and commercially viable, we see GreenMine waste processing as game changing technology which can be applied to the reclamation of legacy capped landfill sites for development.

As of today, there is no technology available in the UK designed to process waste and simultaneously eliminate toxic emissions or mitigate the associated risk of existing legacy landfill waste. Processing existing operational, capped and historical landfill sites opens the possibility of clearing landfill. GreenMine hopes to contribute to the UK government targets and assist in its overarching aim for zero avoidable waste by 2050 in support of the Net Zero Strategy to the near elimination of biodegradable municipal waste to landfill from 2028 and reduced emissions from landfill and incineration, saving an estimated 35 MtCO2e by 2050.

We have been engaging with scientists and engineering groups to develop an extreme form of pyrolysis known as carbonization that can process 70% of in situ landfill waste along with 30% new curbside waste.


There are over 500 operational landfill sites throughout the UK. There are many more capped landfill sites that still emit climate warming and noxious gases. In addition, there are circa 1,500 coastal landfill sites which are exposing waste due to coastal erosion.

According to our own proprietary GIS based landfill data software platform, we estimate there are circa 500 capped and operational landfills in the UK consistent with government data, with an average size of 500-600 acres (202-243 hectares). Many of these sites are close to towns which over time have been encroached by ever increasing urbanization, and are in close proximity to, or actually built on these legacy landfill sites often releasing noxious emissions and attracting pests which are creating health problems for the surrounding communities.

Many Landfill sites occupy land from which the legacy waste can be processed in situ and ultimately become viable real estate opportunities.

Dependent on the required speed of landfill reclamation, additional WCP modules can be utilised to increase processing capacity as required. A landfill gate fee for new waste is now circa £90.00 per tonne.



GreenMine, with the license to acquire, develop, sell a agent, install and consult on such projects for third parties stands ready to develop this technology across Europe and the developed and developing world.

The Eradication of Landfills

GreenMine plans to commercialise the Waste Carbonisation Plants (WCPs) systems in Europe and Asia, through selling the systems to landfill waste companies, allowing these companies to continue absorbing new waste and also clear legacy waste from landfill.

A True Change Of The Game

Our GreenMine technology goes beyond the usual benefits of a waste recycling process. Our process uses innovative technology in that it mitigates pollutant emissions and solid residues during processing, and in their deployment and operation. The equipment can be built within six months, ready for shipping, and a typical five tone per hour plant occupies a footprint of less than 1,000 sqm.

Other Technologies Versus GreenMine

Recycling does not cover all waste generated and its efficiency relies on the community engaging in separating recycling from non-recycling materials. Gasification and some other incineration formulas require hefty, complex capital investments and operating expenses, and do not eliminate emissions.
