Our Green Energy Center
model can help you achieve key goals:
Green Energy Center© (“GEC”) is defined as an integrated
energy complex in which waste fuels, such as landfill gas, Municipal Solid
Waste (MSW) or biomass, is received at a processing center and treated
in an efficient and environmentally sound process to produce electricity,
thermal energy, and alternative fuels. The energy and fuels produced are
available for use by industries within the complex. Excess electrical
energy can be exported to other private or municipal users or sold wholesale
to the power grid.
Methane from landfills, biomass, waste water treatment plants and coal
beds can be extracted and cleaned to pipeline quality natural gas using
our patented and proprietary process. Further processing can economically
produce methanol, or hydrogen for use by alternative fuel vehicles.
The GEC model provides significant benefits to the sponsoring group,
particularly in the forms of waste resource management, water treatment
and water conservation, creation of construction and permanent jobs, and
generation of increased tax revenue from an enlarged industrial tax base.
FirmGreen works with the local public and private sector to select appropriate
GEC sites. For each of the GEC facilities, the energy generation equipment
is fitted with the required pollution controls to meet Environmental Protection
Agency (”EPA”) Best Available Control Technology criteria
or international standards. Each GEC facility is designed to provide the
best utilization of local municipal waste and water resources in an environmentally
- reduce operational costs
- best use of local energy assets
- long-term environmental compliance for facility and fleet with one
- new revenue streams
- stabilize fleet fuel costs long-term
- superior economics for long-term project viability
