Our Areas of expertise
New sustainable energy
Since its incorporation, Pastoor Consult has been approached actively by many international companies. There is a global need for advice on new forms of sustainable energy. We like to think about the production and application of alternative secondary fuels. Our strength and knowledge is in the continued development, conversion and use of those circular fuels. Frequently, this concerns projects in relation to generating sustainable steam and electricity from fuels from waste.
At national level we cooperate with developing steam pipes for generating green steam. In Europe, we operate in Great Britain as representative for Eco-Power Fuels. In South America we are working on a biomass project and on solar projects on land and water.
Pastoor has specialised knowledge of organic waste - biomass. We advise on the process of incineration, gasification or digesting. We use a commercial perspective to tap into the right sales markets. We stand out by finding and connecting various sales markets in the conversion and application of biomass. New biomass applications also keep us occupied on a daily basis. For example, developing boilers and/or new biogas systems.
In its role as business developer, Pastoor works on a large system that produces fertiliser granules from digestate for international agriculture. In South America, we focus on the business development of biomass. For example we make wood pellets from saw waste and clean wood waste and we are studying the possibilities of processing coconuts into purification carbons.
The developments in the green-gas market are accelerating and play an important role in the energy transition. Pastoor is a knowledge carrier of all things biogas and is a member of the European Biogas Association. Our strength is in finding new sales markets, well away from the beaten track. There is also a focus on developing and inventing the right methods for generating green gas in innovative ways.
Pastoor Consult applies its expertise of recycling in various markets. We operate in the market of incinerating sewage sludge, but also work on the recycling chain of plaster waste flows In relation to sewage sludge, we specialise in business development and the use of ash following incineration. We are looking for suitable market players, such as Dutch or German Water Boards and other sludge suppliers. The ash is also used as a phosphate fertiliser and is sold to the fertiliser industry.
For Gips Recycling Benelux (GRB) we are looking for new sales markets for plaster powder and plaster paper in various countries. GRB is dedicated to environmental processing and reusing plaster waste flows. Plaster waste flows are also used for the plasterboard industry to replace primary plaster. An extraordinary link in this market was selling Dutch plaster powder to a cement factoryin Finland.
The road to full circularity is a hot topic at policy level. As expert, Pastoor Consult is involved with various initiatives and boards. We advise on the use of green raw materials to safeguard the feasibility and sustainability of a circular economy. The raw materials of today are the raw materials of the future.
In our role as broker, we have a Circular Economy Chain Manager in the Province of Flevoland and we are members of the Regional Energy Strategy Advisory Council of the Province of Flevoland on behalf of the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW).
In the context of an express demand for developing Energy from Waste, we will join a Waste mission of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). ASEAN countries, including Thailand and Malaysia, are keen to work towards more recycling and Waste-to-Energy (WtE). Pastoor Consult aims to play an important role in this process.
In the cement industry we work as connector and consultant. Following the increasing demand for more use of alternative and/or secondary fuels, we provide services to large international cement manufacturers. With innovative thinking and actions we bring diverse markets together. In short, we look for and find new sales markets for fuels from waste.
One unique project is the link between a carcass processor and a cement factory in Romania where meat and bone meal is used as fuel. In Scandinavia and the Czech Republic we supply fuel pellets to a cement factory.
Energy from Waste
Pastoor Consult looks for sales markets for incinerating plants. Incinerators are largely focused on incinerating residual waste in order to use the energy as efficiently as possible in the form of steam. We look for the right area or the most suitable region to establish the right place for new Energy from Waste plants. Geert Jan Pastoor carries out this work himself in his role as International Business Development Manager.
For the German company EON, Pastoor developed an incinerator resulting in a 5km steam network in Delfzijl. However, exceptional performances transcend borders. For example, we were the first to export fuels from Naples and the region where the Mafia organisation Camorra used to operate. Camorra controlled the waste sector in Naples and used to block any attempt to solve the waste problem.
We also developed the import, and imported fuels, in Mallorca on the instructions of Tirme to safeguard the production of the WtE plant in the low season and for it to have enough to process.
