Circular Economy

LMS Energy – Working Towards a Circular Future  

LMS firmly believes that to create a sustainable future for generations to comes, the world must transition away from a ‘take, make, use and dispose’ economy towards a more circular approach, where the value of our resources is retained for as long as possible. This circular approach is known as the ‘Circular Economy’, the fundamental principle being a reduction in waste generation by continuing to re-purpose materials for their highest value. 

For nearly 40 years, LMS has driven the specialised technology and intellectual property required to efficiently recover and convert organic waste into a valuable source of green energy to power our communities. Today, LMS recovers and converts over 1 million tonnes of organic waste per year.  

To further accelerate the transition from the current linear model of a make-use-dispose economy, LMS has aligned its strategic direction and vision with the primary objectives of a circular economy, these being:  

  • To keep all resources in use for as long as possible  

  • Extracting maximum value from resources while in use  

  • Recovering and regenerating products at the end of their useful life 

This alignment with a circular economy has brought about new ways of thinking and identified new and improved approaches to waste management and bioenergy. This change in mindset has been the ultimate driver behind LMS’ significant investment in technologies that support a circular economy. LMS views all of its projects through a Circular Economy lens and as a result, always strives to improve a projects circular outcomes. This includes consideration of the emissions savings that can be achieved from each project.  

With LMS positioning itself as a key stakeholder in the circular economy, the company can offer partners a range of technology solutions that support the transition to a truly circular economy.  

LMS will continue to lead in biogas innovation, organically powering the circular economy.
