Transition Energy – the backstory

While developing the TEXEL Battery Technology, with the purpose to convert, store and distribute renewable energy, an idea was borne to utilize the expertise and components of the thermal battery to further reduce carbon emissions in other major CO2 emitting applications or that could address other societal problems such as the overuse of plastics in the environment.

This different way of thinking opened new opportunities to showcase the innovative culture of TEXEL that created the idea of utilizing highly efficient electrified heating combined with novel design of catalyst/susceptors to advance sustainable processing technologies, inline with TEXEL’s core value – to Save the World. Hence, the TEXEL subsidiary, Transition Energy, was created.

Our Mission

Transition Energy is innovating the end of landfilling plastics and increasing the utilization of waste biomass while drastically driving energy efficiency and cost reductions across the chemicals and environmental processing industries.

The Problem

Annually, more than 400 million tons of plastic waste are produced in the world. But only 9% is recycled.

Global plastic waste production is increasing every year. Since the 70’s, plastic production has grown faster than any other material, and is forecasted to reach 1,100 million tons by 2050.

This increased production and use of plastics including ‘forever chemicals’ has created a world wide epidemic that Transition Energy is uniquely positioned to solve.

The Transition Energy Solution

Disrupting chemical and environmental processing through modular, electrified, energy efficient reactors. Waste Biomass, Mixed Plastics and Environmental PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). Accelerate the world’s transition to upcycling biomass and plastic materials.

EM-CAT Modularity

Enables high flexibility at low capital costs, electrification with renewables, and increased heating efficiency (>60%) and reduction in GHG emissions (>40%) compared to traditional methodologies.
