Sustainability: a joint responsibility

We're an action-taking company on a mission to build Waste & Energy facilities worldwide, tackling the challenge of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). Our plants produce clean, green CNG and emissions-free energy while ensuring top-notch recyclables.

Let's team up and build a planet-saving future!

Our values define who we are and how we approach challenges

Trust as a trade

We believe that trust is the foundation of all successful business relationships. We strive to foster an environment where trust is not just a buzzword, but a tangible asset that drives meaningful connections and collaboration. We understand that trust is earned through fairness, transparency, and reliability, and we make it our mission to ensure that every interaction within our platform is built on these principles.

Excelence via ownership

Our commitment to ownership means taking responsibility for our decisions, learning from failures, and continuously pushing the boundaries of what is possible. We foster an environment that encourages personal growth, empowers individuals to unleash their full potential, and celebrates achievements along the way.

Inclusive cooperation

We believe that unity and diversity are the pillars of progress. In our ever-evolving world, we strive to create an environment where everyone's voice is heard, valued, and celebrated. Through inclusive cooperation, we embrace the power of diversity and recognize that each individual brings unique perspectives and skills to the table. We foster a culture of collaboration, empathy, and respect, ensuring that every voice has the opportunity to contribute and shape our collective journey.

Known as a super integrator, initiator

We develop projects based on proven waste treatment processes and Best Practices. We develop these projects in a complex environment, together with the relevant stakeholders such as government institutions, municipalities, waste management services, local residents, businesses and environmental interest groups. SusBDe takes on the role of integrating the needs of all these relevant parties.

SusBDe can support the financing of the projects and does not need investments from the municipalities for solving their MSW problems.

Via our SusBDe Investment structure in a regulated environment, we provide investment opportunities for institutional investors, private equity seeking high and secure returns in sustainability and green energy projects.

Our Proposition revolves around four key pillars

Establishing Local Partnerships & Financing

We kickstart the Waste to Energy project by initiating the concession process, securing land and permits in collaboration with local partners. Furthermore, we oversee the local offtake of gas, fertilizer, and recyclables.

Detailed Design

Our next step involves providing an intricately detailed design that is tailored to the specific needs of the project. This design is executed by local Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Management (EPCM) partners who possess in-depth knowledge of the region.

Comprehensive Technical Solutions

We bring together all the necessary technology partners and manage all aspects of contracts, from installation to warranties and ongoing operation and maintenance, ensuring a seamless and worry-free project execution.

Efficient Plant Commissioning & Monitoring

Our commitment extends beyond project completion. We handle the entire commissioning process and continue to monitor the plant's performance to ensure optimal efficiency.

Our journey

A Dutch based company with international roots and a company history dating back to 2009.


2009, the start

Our founder, Mr. Bert Jägel, originated the fundamental concept that forms the foundation of our current blueprint. This concept revolves around recycling and biogas production situated near the source of household waste, with a core principle of zero emissions and zero landfilling. The initial project was envisioned in Ukraine in 2009, and Bert and Bas embarked on this journey, navigating both challenges and triumphs, with Bert leading the way. He unwaveringly believed in extending this concept to the Middle East, ultimately culminating in a partnership with Mrs. Vrinda Thakur for the Indian phase of the journey.

2020, a key moment

In 2020, our company experienced a pivotal moment in its history. The global landscape was swiftly evolving, embracing a new reality characterized by reduced reliance on fossil fuels, minimized landfill usage, and a heightened focus on sustainability. Embracing green practices became imperative.

Simultaneously, our concept gained widespread acceptance, leading to overtures from various entities seeking our expertise in addressing their waste management concerns while concurrently producing environmentally-friendly biogas.

Count on us to deliver results, because we have experts in our respective fields.
