Torrgas was founded with the mission to develop a technological and economically competitive energy solution using biowaste. Our contribution is to build a technology value chain for the production of alternative fuels and bioproducts that reduce reliance on petroleum and gas.
This has the ability to realistically meet growing energy demands without impacting the economics of food production or posing a threat to natural habitats.
Our company is built around a team of world-class professionals with expertise in torrefaction, gasification, biomass and in creating and building successful sustainable businesses. Our team strongly believes that renewable energy and biobased chemicals and fuels can be produced in an economical, sustainable and decentralized manner.
We design, build and operate energy systems that can make the world less dependent on fossil fuels, that is what A.Hak Renewable Energy is about. Smart solutions to conserve energy, produce clean energy from biomass waste and generate sustainable energy locally. Solutions that usually start with a good idea. Project development, our first core activity, aims at transforming that idea into a feasible and financeable business case. Our second core activity seamlessly links to this: as a EPC contractor we carry out projects from start to finish. A.Hak’s clients and partners thereby profit from over 50 years experience in the field of energy infrastructure. We believe in bio-renewables. The annual global primary production of woody biomass is equivalent to 4,500 Exajoules (EJ) of solar energy captured each year. This can cover 8 times the world wide energy need (600 EJ/y). You only have to find a way making biomass worth tradable. We mean worth to transport, store and utilize. That’s why a.hak invested in the torrefaction value chain. Torr-Coal turns biomass waste stream into a high energy bio-coal. Torrgas adds maximum value to bio-coal at the end of the torrefaction value chain.
