ENDEGS presents its innovative technologies at competition for emissions reduction in Malaysia
Top 20 placement at competition in Kuala Lumpur hosted by PETRONAS oil company
Pförring, Germany, March 28, 2023 – ENDEGS Group, an expert in industrial emissions reduction, has participated in an innovation competition in Malaysia. At the event hosted by oil company PETRONAS (Petroliam Nasional), ENDEGS presented its innovative technologies and services in Kuala Lumpur from March 12 to 16. ENDEGS finished in the top 20 of the competition, for which a total of more than 500 companies and organisations submitted over 3,000 ideas.
Under the slogan Race2Decarbonise, state-owned oil company PETRONAS Malaysia has launched a program for decarbonisation and emissions reduction. The company’s short-term goal is to significantly reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for scope 1 and scope 2 emissions to 49.5 million tons of carbon dioxide by 2024. In the long term, PETRONAS is targeting a 50 % reduction in methane emissions by 2025. It also aims to eliminate carbon dioxide emissions by 2050. In order to achieve these goals, emissions from its own processes are to be reduced, customers are to be supported in reducing emissions with clean energy solutions and remaining emissions are to be compensated.
To achieve this, PETRONAS Malaysia wants to work more closely with companies that offer emission reduction solutions. Therefore, the Race2Decarbonise competition was launched. Over 500 companies have applied in four categories to take part in the competition. From all participants, 32 companies were selected in a thorough evaluation process to present their technologies in Kuala Lumpur. ENDEGS was represented by founder and managing director Kai Sievers and David Wendel, managing director of ENDEGS Operations GmbH. In the category Prevention of flaring and venting, ENDEGS presented its innovative solutions for mitigating industrial emissions.
“We are proud that we were one of the initial 500 applicants that got the chance to participate in the final round in Malaysia. That shows how future-proof our technologies and services are”, says Kai Sievers, founder and managing director of ENDEGS Group. “We want to thank our local partner for the great support in Malaysia.”
“In addition to our successful participation in the competition, we have also received generally positive feedback from operational executives in Malaysia”, says David Wendel, managing director of ENDEGS Operations GmbH. “We therefore see an opportunity to offer our services in Malaysia as well, after we have already expanded to the Arabian Peninsula.”
Reducing emissions and contributing to health and environmental protection
ENDEGS solutions can make an important contribution to reducing global industrial emissions. Too often, hazardous gases and substances are still released untreated into the atmosphere, subsequently harming both people and environment. In 2008, ENDEGS has enabled the mobile treatment of emissions for the very first time ever world-wide and has extensive experience with more than 1,400 successfully completed projects. The mobile incinerators can destroy all types of gases, gas mixtures and vapors of explosion groups IIA, IIB and IIC – without open flame and with a combustion rate of more than 99.99 %. ENDEGS thus enables mobile and environmentally friendly degassing of tanks, pipelines, containers, ships and all other components applied in industrial plants.
The ENDEGS portfolio also includes other sustainable and effective technologies. The fleet of mobile vaporizers with nitrogen tanks can be applied to purge and render inert systems and system components containing flammable liquids and gases. This enables the degassing of components containing complex, liquid and highly flammable substances such as LNG/CNG, ammonia, hydrogen or propane. The remote-controlled ATEX Zone 0 robot as a rental service ensures greater safety during tank cleaning. ENDEGS has been awarded the TOP 100 seal 2023, making it one of the most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany for the third year in a row.
