“We look forward to working with the business as it continues to build scale,” he said, adding that AXA IM Alts’ impact objectives align closely with Meva Energy’s mission.

About Meva Energy

Meva Energy is a company specialising in gasification technology for renewable energy production. It focuses on small-fraction fuels and is committed to providing highly efficient solutions for renewable industrial gas or power.

The company traces its roots back to 1995, when research on biomass gasification began at the Luleå University of Technology and the Energitekniskt Centrum (ETC) gasification centre in Sweden.

Meva Energy was officially founded in 2008. The company established its office in Skellefteå. A pilot plant of 400 kW was designed and developed in 2009 at ETC, serving as a test bed for system verification and fuel tests.

In 2011, Meva Energy received its first order for a full-scale commercial plant from the local utility company Pite Energi in Sweden. This plant, located in Hortlax, was designed to produce 1.2 MW of electricity and 2.4 MW of heat.

The company then established a collaborative partnership and distribution agreement with Cummins Inc. Cummins supplied the Hortlax plant with its QSV91 gas engine.
