In the USA, we produce more than 267 million tons per year of solid waste which goes into our landfills, and the landfills are getting full. 75-80% of solid waste is comprised of organic waste. When organic waste is disposed in landfills it decomposes over time creating greenhouse gases that remain in our atmosphere between 50-200 years.
Plastics are a rapidly growing segment of solid waste and are found in non-durable products, such as disposable diapers, trash bags, cups, utensils, medical devices, and household items like shower curtains. Plastic resins are also used in a variety of container and packaging products, such as beverage bottles, milk jugs, water bottles, and grocery bags. Plastic bottles take 450 years to decompose in a landfill, other plastic items may take up to 1000 years to decompose in a landfill.
The US Environmental Protection Agency considers separated Municipal Solid Waste a renewable resource.
Our country is searching for alternative fuel sources to power our nation. Renewable energy sources can be used to produce energy.
Each community must find a way to balance environmentally friendly management options with what is economically feasible. A Waste to Energy solution captures organic waste and plastics, thus helping develop the regional capacity for beneficial use through the production of low cost, renewable, green energy.
Our non-combustion gasification technology utilizes up to 4,400 tons of waste per day, or more, including clothes made of nylon, polyester, etc., plastics including PVC, lawn grass and food waste,
Shredded tires,medical waste (processed separately) up to 551 pounds per hour, waste oil (Processed separately), sewage sludge, residues from paper.
The waste is sorted and dried, thus reducing the moisture and eliminating the odor. This is done through a series of fully automated shredders, rotary boxes, and bio-filters. Moisture reduction is accomplished through a series of several steps and produces clean water that can be utilized for agriculture irrigation.
Syngas is produced with no incineration or pyrolysis through a completely sealed system utilizing multiple reactors and scrubbers. This process produces ultra-clean syngas and high-value coke with no odor, no residue, no ash, and 100% emission-free.
