IRVINE, Calif., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- FlexEnergy, a clean tech business with the breakthrough solution to generate clean energy from harmful greenhouse gases with near zero emissions, was named a winner in the Anaheim Center for New Energy Technologies (AC-NET)'s Clean Tech Business Plan Competition. FlexEnergy was honored for a business plan and technology that includes the development of the FlexPowerstation, which converts low-pressure weak fuel into electricity with almost no emissions. This modular turnkey system enables the generation of clean energy while solving a major environmental challenge through the elimination of greenhouse gases – the seepage or flaring of dilute methane from landfills, digesters, coalmines, and other industrial sites.
The AC-NET award is bestowed to companies with profitable and innovative solutions to energy and water challenges. The competition is judged by leaders from the clean tech, venture capital, utility, and academic fields and is part of the Clean Technology Conference & Expo – North America's largest clean technology event.
57 companies submitted proposals and competed in two rounds of eliminations, which ended with FlexEnergy being honored for second place overall and the leading greenhouse gas reduction technology.
FlexEnergy (www.flexenergy.com) is committed to providing platforms to utilize existing, unconventional energy sources to create new, sustainable solutions. Flex technology has taken one of the world's largest sources of greenhouse gases and transformed it into an energy source for the clean generation of electricity, offering energy recovery where it was previously impossible.
Three hundred million tons of methane seep into the atmosphere each year, most too dilute for current technology to destroy. The FlexPowerstation converts gases with low concentration of methane to clean, renewable energy. Unlike other technologies, the FlexPowerstation creates electricity with near zero NOx or CO emissions, providing a breakthrough solution for landfills, coalmines and manufacturers needing to stay ahead of emissions regulations.
