There are many Waste-To-Energy Technologies (WTE). While incineration is a WTE technology it sets back sustainability solutions by 25 years. BioPower offers a next generation solution that turns Waste to Renewable Energy. We refer to it as a WTRE Technology. Sustainability is the most crucial challenge our civilization faces since the beginning of the industrial revolution. On a finite planet we cannot run a throwaway society indefinitely. A sustainable economy is one that can meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. BioPower is committed to Waste-To-Renewable Energy (WTRE) Solution using their unique thermal gasification technology, an upgrade to present gasification technology in use around the world for the last 30 years. These innovative gasifier processes enable the company to enhance the thermal output. To our knowledge this is the cleanest and most cost effective technology for the conversion of wastes to produce electricity or diesel fuel. We are committed to sustainability. We don’t just talk about it but we are fastidious in our implementations. Our Process considers the environment every step of the way.

Green3Power’s complete Air Fed Gasification System provides clean, reliable power,
Green3Power's complete Air Fed Gasification System provides clean, reliable power, utilizes renewable resources as fuel, and consists of FIVE stages of treatment. These treatment stages are essential to the efficient and clean operation of any gasification system, and are designed to minimize the quantity of ash generated by the system, minimize the quantity of heavy metals and hazardous constituents in the flue gas, improve the energy efficiency, and provide the highest level of performance and protection for human health and the environment available in the market place. Sustainability is key in every step of our process:

Despite being an attractive technological option for waste management
Despite being an attractive technological option for waste management, combustion-based processes for municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment in the absence of effective controls, harmful pollutants may be emitted into the air, land and water which may influence human health and environment. Although incineration of municipal waste coupled with energy recovery can form an essential part of an integrated waste management system, yet strict controls are required to prevent its negative impacts on human health and environment. The incineration process produces two types of ash. Bottom ash comes from the furnace and is mixed with slag, while fly ash comes from the stack and contains components that are more hazardous. In municipal waste incinerators, bottom ash is approximately 10% by volume and approximately 20 to 35% by weight of the solid waste input. Fly ash quantities are much lower, generally only a few percent of input. Emissions from incinerators can include heavy metals, dioxins and furans, which may be present in the waste gases, water or ash. Plastic and metals are the major source of the calorific value of the waste. The combustion of plastics, like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) gives rise to these highly toxic pollutants. The waste-to-energy program to maximize energy recovery is technologically incompatible with reducing dioxins emissions. Dioxins are the most lethal Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) which have irreparable environmental health consequences.
