MISSION

bg_hd_box_blue

“Develop sustainable business practices that cause no unnecessary harm and inspire companies to implement solutions to the environmental crisis.”

 
bunker3

Neomer is a member of an international business network that has taken on the task of Sustainable Business Development.

For us this involves the development and implementation of concepts and solutions that enable economical as well as ecological development of companies and their value supply chains: specifically to reduce the burden on the environment and reduce the consumption of resources.

A specialty of Neomer is Integrated Resource Management. The focus of this specialty area is managing waste as part of a sustainable system with the ultimate goal of cradle to cradle and zero waste.

Solutions focus on disruptive innovative technologies, which enable often completely new possibilities in the field of resource management (resource-cycles), renewable energies (solar/wind) and their utilization, storage and distribution. In addition, we develop concepts for footprint optimization/CO2 reduction.

HOW WE WORK

bg_hd_box_blue

 
 

Neomer’s approach is based on the “Blue Ocean Strategy”, a business model developed at Harvard University by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne. Key is the development of new markets (blue oceans) through beneficial innovations such as technological, system and process application.

Projects

  • Neomer is actively developing projects that target specific opportunities (that often are presented in the form of shortcomings of existing outdated procedures and practices) in the clean tech and resource management sectors. In order to improve how we harvest, produce and mange our resources such as energy and materials we need to think innovative, we need to listen and engage new developments and find solutions that efficiently replace inefficiency.

  • Neomer is developing as an Umbrella company with partners and access to emerging & proven technologies, state of the art research & development and scientific research, facts and proof.

  • It is our ultimate goal to replace outdated concepts with new technologies, new ways of doing business and disrupt the status quo of ‘business as usual’ that in an ever changing world is unlikely to survive.

  • Some of our current projects are listed below. However, not all are listed as we navigate politics and policies in order to successfully progress into the next steps.

  • We ask the question: “What will the next 100 years look like and how will development of the next 20 years affect the next 1000 years?”

    Efficiency: Sweden’s recycling is so revolutionary, the country has to import rubbish from other countries to keep its recycling plants going. What lessons can we learn…
    …Angus Evers says a better domestic recycling system should be a part of our strategy for leaving the EU. “The materials we currently export represent a huge drain of valuable resources going out of the UK that could be used in the UK economy to make new products and reduce our imports of raw materials. If we have aspirations to be less dependent on Europe, then we need to be more self-sufficient and recycle more,” Mr. Evers says.

    Slides Feb. 28th (link to slides here)

    • Landfilling in the US does not incorporate adequate economic nor environmental costs;
    • Engaging a holistic infrastructure is vital on the road toward Zero Waste:
       o We need to phase out landfilling of untreated waste
       o Current landfill infrastructure hinders waste avoidance, recycling and moving towards zero waste
       o Important to focus on hierarchy when dealing with waste: Avoidance, Reuse, Recycling, Recovery, Landfill only inert, pretreated (thermally) waste (phasing out landfilling of untreated waste)
       o There are limits to recycling
       o Majority of recyclables are exported and would be much more valuable to use in local economies/infrastructure adding local jobs, revenues and providing local resources
       o We burry between $250Billion-$350Billion economic value in landfills in the US every year
       o Landfills will be with us indefinitely – what is the cost to ‘indefinitely’ as the engineered landfill structure can fail tomorrow and are not sustainable?
       o WTE is reliable and safe
       o WTE is the economical and environmental better alternative to landfilling (even when best available technology is used)
       o WTE reduces carbon footprint over landfilling significantly (1-4 tons CO2 reduction per ton of waste)
       o WTE is no longer the Commodore 64 Computer of the 1980s but the Supercomputer of today: producing energy, revenues and destroying the toxic organic components contained in waste resulting in emissions that are often calculable but not detectable
       o Federal, regional and local regulations are needed to promote local, industry development that can focus on waste as a resource
       o Moving away from landfilling of untreated waste in the US can provide more than 500,000 jobs in the US

    Harvard Business Review: Companies That Don’t Manage Utilities Strategically Are Throwing Money Away by Jimmy Jia MARCH 22, 2016: One solution is to appoint a Chief Utility Officer, who can centralize decision making around utilities and rethink its role to support strategic corporate goals… Adopting a more outcome-oriented energy management approach can have a large potential impact. For the U.S., if we look at electricity, the 30% waste quoted by the EPA is equivalent to $100 billion of wasted economic activity per year with over $30 billion in the commercial sector alone. This doesn’t even include water, trash, sewage, natural gas, or other frequently consumed utilities.Full text:https://hbr.org/2016/03/companies-that-dont-manage-utilities-strategically-are-throwing-money-away
    COP 21 United Nations Climate Change Conference Paris – December 2015: 195 nations unanimously agree: Global Warming is a real threat to humanity, CO2 reductions are essential in all its forms and shapes to preventing a disaster, which, considering the lack of policies and commitment is already well under way.Drastic steps are needed from all countries – developed and developing.http://unfccc.int/resource/docs/2015/cop21/eng/l09.pdf It is not binding yet so voluntary efforts are ever so more important and will show unprecedented leadership and determination.
    Study by IFEU and OEKO Institutes – June 2015: Study “Climate Change Mitigation Potential of the Waste Sector” published in June 2015 (German) and July 2015 (English) clearly identifies that the US, currently still relying predominantly on landfilling, can reduce its Greenhouse Gas inventory significantly by phasing out landfilling and turning to secondary raw materials and energy from resource ‘waste’. These are not only ecologic but important economic opportunities: advancements & innovations in technology, jobs, retained revenues, more efficient resource management & less reliance on primary resources.
    G7 Summit – May 2015 : At the 41st G7 Summit in Elmau, Germany, June 7-8th, all 7 countries adopted anonymously the Alliance on Resource Efficiency. On a global level, the consumption of natural resources and production of waste have increased to a greater scale than ever before. Unsustainable consumption of natural resources and concomitant environmental degradation translates into increasing business risks through higher materials costs, supply uncertainties and disruptions.  Improving resource efficiency and managing materials sustainably throughout their life cycles are key prerequisites for environmental and climate protection, employment, social benefits and sustainable growth. Efficient resource management reduces the burden on the environment while strengthening the sustainability, competitiveness and growth of the economy.
