Turning “Nothing” Into Something Clean & Green

The idea of turning solid waste and biomass into energy isn’t new. Look at any coal-fired power plant, for example.  Look at waste management companies in league with cities all over the world incinerating solid waste to create electricity, spewing tons of contaminants ’round the clock into the atmosphere at a massive global scale.

Don’t kid yourself that all these emissions don’t already impact your life.  They most certainly do, and it will only grow worse unless we change how we get rid of unwanted stuff. In fact, the long-term quality of the planet’s soil and water, and the air we breathe will all be determined by how we create energy to power the planet going forward.  Even so will the levels of our oceans!

No matter how clean incinerators or current coal-fired power plants are claimed to be, the byproducts of incineration and coal burning at worldwide scale are toxic particles and greenhouse gases emitted to the sky through giant smokestacks. And, forgive us for this literary transgression, you are the human guinea pig breathing it every day of your life!

Is there a better way? You betcha. Bioroot Energy seeks to deploy community-scale plasma gasification to higher mixed alcohol fuel generation technologies to address these burning issues and fundamentally change how America’s cities and towns treat and view municipal solid waste and non-crop biomass.

Our “nothing into something” solution is a closed-loop, ultra low emissions process that efficiently converts all types of MSW, coal fines, petroleum coke, sewer sludge, black liquor, methane, excess non-crop biomass, and even CO2, into higher mixed alcohol fuels that can be blended and run neat in both gasoline and diesel engines or power a turbine, or even be slurried with coal and gasified. Without forcing you to breathe our  emissions because we haven’t yet figured out how to it more cleanly.

“ENVIROLENE” from Standard Alcohol Company of America, Inc., is a a higher mixed alcohol fuel that can be refined from almost anything we dispose of without polluting.  Or going broke!

We have the technology to transform what’s in your trash can (something nobody really wants) into something everybody needs (sustainable green energy). We’re sure you’ll definitely grow to appreciate our effort in more ways than one, and so will your kids and their kids.

We’re ready to go.  Are you? Don’t mull it over too long, we have a planet to protect!

Trash Isn’t Just America’s Problem

Along with almost every other developed country, trash is China’s problem too.

From the MSNBC article:

At least 85 percent of China’s seven billion tons of trash is in landfills, much of it in unlicensed dumps in the countryside. Most have only thin linings of plastic or fiberglass. Rain drips heavy metals, ammonia, and bacteria into the groundwater and soil, and the decomposing stew sends out methane and carbon dioxide.

Regulations allow incinerators to emit 10 times the level of dioxins permitted in the U.S., and these release cancer-causing dioxins and other poisons, according to a Chinese government study.
