Bewi Energy AS was formed 01.01.19 to enter the Energy Market with new, innovative and sustainable solutions that will utilize and grow the existing Bewi Group network of 32 factories spread across Europe.
Bewi Energy AS is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bewi Group. We consist of 1.500 highly skilled employees who runs and operate our 32 manufacturing plants in 6 European countries. Our revenue was EUR 750 million in 2018.
The Group is strategically integrated throughout the value chain with an annual production capacity of 185,000 tonnes of the raw material EPS beads and with market leadership positions for its solutions for Packaging & Components and Insulation in several European countries. EPS, also called cellular plastic foam, is among others used for packaging of food, pharmaceuticals and technical components, as well as insulation of buildings and infrastructure. Today our products protect and insulate everything from fish and vegetables to fragile products. Expanded polystyrene is also used in walls, roofs and floors, under streets and roads, and in bridges. Our products make a difference, but we are on a mission. We want to change things and drive the industry forward. By combining technology and innovation with production and operational know-how, we will develop new areas for EPS. We aim to become the leading EPS producer in Europe, and an internationally renowned brand regarding environmental responsibility. Our focus on the Energy Sector represents a major growth potential. New products deriving from recycling of plastics used in the industry in combination with our enthusiasm will show significant effect in the years to come.
The 17 UN Sustainability Goals are high on our priority list.
Bewi Energy has a clear focus to align every activity we do with one or several of the 17 UN sustainability goals. Top management has already changed several internal processes to make sure we contribute as much as possible and we will not start a new without ticking off positive contribution to at least one of the 17 areas. We encourage you to visit www.unenvironment.org to read up should you not already be well enlightened.

The Bewi Protector will be used, reused and reused until reaching a status where we recycle the product – Inside the ESPS parameters of the offshore base. On top we are receiving ALL EP / EPS plastic returning to base from the rigs in Norwegian waters. This plastic is cleaned, grinded and processed in order to become new protectors and pallets in a circular model. Excess raw material will be used across our factory network to increase recycled plastic percentage content in our wide variety of products in the Bewi Group.
Plastic is a tremendous resource. Human handling of plastic is however a major challenge. We need to change the way we behave around how we treat plastic once used. Plastic is one of few raw materials that can be recycled over and over again, but that will not be possible unless collected and processed. Bewi Energy is now expanding our recycling capacity and we estimate some 10.000 tonnes pr. month to be added to our existing activity by end 2020. This is high quality raw material that will ensure significant content of recycled plastic in all our products and will lead to new products that will change the way we think
Bewi Energy top management all come from industries requiring very high quality and extreme focus on EH&S QHSE. As a result, we have introduced new guidelines to all our employees to make sure we have workplace safety on top of our mind. “Do things right the firs time” equals high quality and positive customer experiences. NO waste from our activity shall be treated outside our guidelines and this has led a well-established organization in to an “environmental police” force.
