Green utilities for a green generation

A Pathway to Clean Energy

Empire Green Generation is a behind-the-grid utilities company that utilizes waste-to-energy and recycling systems to provide electricity, waste management, and water treatment services to Empire’s Riverfront Industrial Complex. Green-Gen provides electricity from waste plastic-derived syngas and green hydrogen from recycling food waste.

Empire Diversified Energy Included in ARCH2’s DOE Funding for Hydrogen Projects

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced last week that Empire Diversified Energy ARCH2 was selected as one of seven hydrogen hub projects nationwide to receive funding from DOE’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED)

about us

Waste-to-Energy is the sustainable alternative to landfills for waste disposal

The Company’s goal is to develop a portfolio of greenoriented solutions as well as a network of logistics and storage facilities along the Ohio River in Follansbee, West Virginia.

Green Hydrogen Production

Fully renewable hydrogen to be used as transportation/industrial fuel.

Anaerobic Digester

Food waste recycling plant that diverts waste from landfills and creates methane that is gasified and turned into green hydrogen.

Plastic Recycling Technology

Plastic waste pyrolysis facility will utilize a thermochemical recycling system designed to turn plastic waste into syngas and then electricity.

Green Hydrogen Production

Utilizes The Embodied Energy in food waste to generate hydrogen.

Renewable Energy Source

Green hydrogen is produced using renewable, non-carbon generating energy sources. Green Generation's anaerobic digester will transform biomass into renewable natural gas and eventually green hydrogen, recovering all of the embodied energy otherwise lost in a landfill.

Reduced Carbon Emissions

Unlike blue hydrogen, which is produced from natural gas and emits greenhouse gases, green hydrogen production results in zero or very low carbon emissions, contributing to efforts to combat climate change.

Energy Storage

Green hydrogen can serve as a valuable energy storage solution. Energy otherwise lost in natural energy dispersion can be stored as hydrogen and later converted into electricity or used as a clean fuel in various sectors, including transportation, industry, and heating.

Versatile Applications

Green hydrogen has a wide range of applications across various industries. It can be used as a clean fuel for vehicles, an energy source for industrial processes, or even as feedstock for green ammonia fertilizer production.

environmental attributes

Energy for a sustainable and environmentally friendly society.

Green hydrogen could be a critical enabler of the global transition to sustainable energy and net zero emissions economies.

anaerobic digestion

Industrial Scale Infrastructure Providing Renewable Resources to the Ohio Valley and Beyond

Waste Management

Anaerobic digestion is an effective method for treating organic waste materials, including food waste, agricultural residues, and wastewater sludge. It helps divert these materials from landfills and incineration, reducing the environmental impact of waste disposal while producing valuable biogas and nutrient-rich digestate that can be used as a fertilizer.

Biogas Production

Anaerobic digestion is primarily used to produce biogas, which is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide. This biogas can be captured, purified, and used as a renewable energy source for electricity and heat generation, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions

Environmental Benefits

Anaerobic digestion reduces greenhouse gas emissions in multiple ways. It captures methane, a potent greenhouse gas, from decomposing organic matter, preventing its release into the atmosphere. Additionally, the digestate produced can replace synthetic fertilizers, further reducing the carbon footprint of agriculture.

Energy Independence

Anaerobic digestion can contribute to energy independence by providing a localized and renewable source of energy. It is particularly beneficial for rural areas and farms, as it allows them to generate their own energy and reduce dependence on external energy sources.

Waste-to-Energy is the sustainable alternative to landfills for waste disposal

Modern Waste-to-Energy facilities divert waste from landfills to generate energy from the combustion of municipal solid waste.  Our Waste-to-Energy facilities are designed to convert the waste that remains after recycling into electricity or gaseous fuel.

What we offer

Pyrolysis: waste-to-energy and commodity

Waste-to-Energy Conversion

Plastic pyrolysis provides a means to convert non-recyclable or low-value plastic waste into valuable energy resources. During the process, plastics are heated in the absence of oxygen, leading to the decomposition of long-chain polymers into smaller hydrocarbons. This results in the production of synthesis gas (or syngas), which can be used as a fuel source for heating, electricity generation, or as feedstock for hydrogen production.

Reduction of Plastic Pollution

Plastic pyrolysis helps address the global issue of plastic pollution by reducing the volume of plastic waste in landfills and the environment. It provides an alternative to conventional disposal methods, such as incineration and landfilling, which can release harmful emissions and contribute to environmental degradation.

Resource Recovery

Pyrolysis can recover valuable materials from plastic waste, such as hydrocarbons and carbon black. These recovered materials can be further processed and used in various industrial applications, reducing the need for virgin fossil resources and promoting resource efficiency.

Job Creation and Economic Benefits

Operational pyrolysis facilities can create jobs in waste management, recycling, and the renewable energy sector. They can also contribute to local economies by providing a source of income and supporting related industries.

environmental attributes

Converting plastic waste into green energy

Unlike traditional incineration, pyrolysis utilizes a no-oxygen environment to transform plastic waste into synthesis gas (syngas), which can then be used to create electricity or fuel vehicles.


Our projects are leveraging fully commercialized, proven Waste-to-Energy technology.


Divert Waste from Landfill In the U.S., there are still 300 million of tons of waste going to landfills each year.


The rise in popularity of single-use plastics has driven the need for sustainable disposal solutions like pyrolysis.

Proven Technology to improve our environment

Waste-to-Energy is better for the climate than landfills

How It work

Why Waste-to-Energy Works


A Climate Solution

The greenhouse gas emissions averted by a single Waste-to-Energy facility are equivalent to removing up to a quarter-million cars from the road for a year.

Globally Proven Technology

Waste-to-Energy is recognized as a progressive waste and energy technology around the world. The European Union and U.S. EPA recognize Waste-to-Energy as preferable to landfills.

More Recycling

Waste-to-Energy recovers more than 700,000 tons of metal each year for recycling – the equivalent amount of steel to build more than seven Golden Gate Bridges.

Positive Economic Impact

Waste-to-Energy provides good-paying jobs, supporting approximately 14,000 jobs and nearly $1 billion in wages, salaries and benefits.

Community-Focused Solution

Waste-to-Energy provides millions of dollars in support of important community organizations and programs that empower sustainable communities, green education and environmental responsibility.

Renewable Energy

Waste-to-Energy has been recognized as renewable in federal law and is defined as renewable in 30 states and the European Union.
