Sustainability

The cleanest, most-efficient way to generate energy from natural gas.

Clean energy from natural gas?

Advancements in technologies like solar panels and wind turbines have disrupted the energy industry by unlocking new, renewable sources of energy. Despite their promise, these advancements ignore the inefficiency of existing energy infrastructure, where gigawatts of power are wasted every year. The ASTE aims to build a more efficient energy ecosystem by eliminating waste and making natural gas a cleaner, more sustainable source of energy.

ASTE Sustainability Benefits

Energy from
Waste

Energy from
Waste

Each ASTE unit harvests enough wasted energy to generate up to 6 MWh of electricity per day, with zero carbon emissions. Depending on the inlet/outlet pressure and mass flow rate, Anax can install several ASTE units at the same regulating station to generate significantly more electricity.

Combined Heat and Power
(CHP)

Combined Heat and Power
(CHP)

In addition to generating electricity from waste, the ASTE also integrates with most CHP systems. By using waste heat to preheat the gas supply, the ASTE helps reduce a site’s heat emission and water consumption by up to one ton per hour.

Government Sustainability Incentives

Government Sustainability Incentives

The ASTE is eligible for several local, state, and federal sustainability incentives that cover pressure-reduction turbines, CHP systems, and self-generation.
