Generating Green Energy from Wastes Materials

Green Energy from Wastes

One of the consistent problems with waste management systems has been the inefficient management of solid wastes thus causing various ecological concerns. Good thing new technology and strategies are dealing with this issue.

Traditional waste management systems like landfills and incinerators are known to contribute to environmental problems such as air pollution, contamination of ground water and vegetation. And often times these even cause adverse effects to human health. But with new technologies on waste treatment, tested methods are being used which are more efficient and reliable than landfill system and incinerators. The concept on these green technologies is to destroy waste and convert wastes into green energy without causing any harm to the environment and human health.

The problem of pollution due to inefficient waste management can be greatly avoided through green technology like Biosphere Technology, a waste to energy system that provides effective process of energy conversion from waste materials including the non-traditional wastes.

One of the major advantages with Biosphere Technology is the de-carbonized production of energy from waste. If it is further developed it could supply the world’s energy needs thus reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. It is for a fact that fossil fuels are the number one energy sources with highest carbon dioxide emissions. With this problem at hand the world really needs a sustainable and environmental energy source like what Biosphere Technology offers. Instead of exploiting our natural resources for energy why not utilize the tons of wastes for energy conversion. This actually opens the opportunity to clear the environment from wastes while strengthening the production of green energy.

Generating green energy from wastes on a large scale has always been a bit of a head scratcher. Early returns on the concentrated energy strategy, however, have been extremely positive both on environmental protection and energy industry.

  1. This process is widely done here in our country. Using the waste produced by the hogs is processed to create methane gas that will be used in energy conversion. It greatly reduce the energy consumption of meat processing plants
