Cost Effective, Eco-Friendly Municipal Solid Waste to Energy
Waste Management is Critical
Municipal Solid Waste(MSW) management is one of the world’s biggest challenges. The US currently produces over 250 million tons of MSW each year, almost 2/3 of which continues to be landfilled. Other forms of waste (wood waste, agricultural waste, industrial waste, and other solid waste) increases this quantity significantly. Worldwide, the total MSW number is 1.3 billion tons per year and projected to grow to 2.6 billion tons per year by 2025 (The Worldwatch Institute), and that number is projected to triple by 2100. The increased pressure to find alternative ways to deal with MSW will increase the catalytic forces propelling bioenergy projects forward, especially waste-to-energy projects.
- About 33% of the over 250 million tons per year of MSW in the US is recycled.
- 11% is converted to energy through old incinerators
- Over 135 million tons per year are deposited into 1,700 existing landfills, leading to immense methane emissions exceeding 1 million tons of CO2 equivalent per month.
- Many countries have governmental mandates that support our MSW to Bio-Fuel initiatives.
– EU and Brazil have landfill elimination plans
– EU, Mexico, Brazil, India, Australia & New Zealand are creating renewable energy plans
- The potential market is over 1,000 projects in the US, just using MSW.
- The worldwide opportunity is almost 20 times that amount (20,000 potential projects just using MSW).
EEI's self sustaining Total Recovery Facility (TRF™)
Eco Energy International (EEI) seeks to reduce landfill use while maximizing recycling and producing clean energy. EEI’s bio reformation technology extracts clean, usable Hydrogen (H2) from the organic materials in Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) while capturing their carbon content. The left over materials are then to re-engineered fuel to be the feedstock of gasifiers, creating Syngas suitable for generation of electricity or the production of additional H2. The result: instead of sending waste material to a landfill, we utilize all the materials to produce both H2 and electricity. Remaining materials are recycled and water used in this process can be reclaimed for reuse.
“From the Dump to the Pump”
• Bio-gases can be converted directly into hydrogen more efficiently than other disposal methods
Zero Landfill Waste
“Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use…
…Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health.”
