Fossil energy emissions and pollution, along with society’s solid and liquid wastes, are clearly creating profound environmental and economic problems.
In our wealthy society, reducing environmental degradation is a valid measure of success. Bioroot Energy’s objective is to profitably address environmental problems on a global basis.
The steady rise of CO2 and CH4 methane emissions is mirrored by the disposal and incineration of solid and liquid carbon wastes at global scale. We see massive potential to turn society’s waste carbons into clean energy opportunities.
Biomass derived from mechanical thinning operations offers large volumes of renewable feedstocks. Harvesting and conversion of forest-based biomass wastes to alcohol fuel can reduce fire risks, improve air quality, and provide a strong economic multiplier for rural economies that have historically focused on logging and timber.
Municipal landfills receive constant streams of diverse stream of solid and liquid carbon wastes. Decomposition of these wastes also generates massive volumes of methane, as well as other toxic compounds, i.e., leachate.
This video documents the ingestion of plastic by phytoplankton, photosynthesizing microscopic organisms that inhabit the upper sunlit layer of oceans and bodies of fresh water.
