Due Diligence

SES staff have conducted technical, financial and project due diligence on a variety of Waste to Energy, composting and anaerobic digestion technologies.

From gasification/pyrolysis to biomass combustion, to in-vessel composting and AD, our staff have a wide knowledge base upon which to draw to support our clients.

We also provide preliminary technology advice to EPC companies, accountancy firms and funding institutions to prevent costly use of time and resources on proposals that will never be able to deliver on their promises, either through bad choice of technology or over optimistic performance predictions.
