Who we are
Welcome to Harp Renewables
Where electrical engineering meets biotechnology.
Founder and company director Shane Finnegan established Harp Renewables Ltd. in 2014 to provide a renewable and sustainable solution for the treatment of organic waste. Since that time, Harp Renewables has emerged as a global leader in thermophilic aerobic digestion, and waste treatment solutions. The company manufactures and sells a range of Harp Bio-Digesters that convert food and other organic waste into a dry, safe, nutrient-rich soil product. Harp’s solution eliminates landfilling of harmful organic wastes, provides soil regeneration, and significantly reduces CO2 and greenhouse gases.
Harp Renewables combines electrical engineering expertise with renewable, proprietary bio-technology to provide clients with a better, cleaner, and more sustainable alternative to traditional waste disposal, while reducing overall costs.
In 2018 Harp Renewables won ‘Best Indigenous Innovation Award’ at the Energy in Agriculture awards and the ‘Best Agri Innovation Award’ at the National Irish Ploughing Championships in Ireland.
