DUBLIN, Ohio, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Viridis Waste Control, LLC,
announced today that the U.S. Patent application for the proprietary
bioreactor process was granted by the United States Patent and Trademark
office. With the patent, Viridis now has available the Bioreactor Landfill
Technology that is the best available technology for America's solid waste
disposal landfills. The patented technology provides significant advances
and dramatic enhancements in the reduction of greenhouse gasses, delivers
substantially greater air and water pollution reduction, and increased
methane production and recovery from landfills. Additionally, the Viridis
patented technology enables more useable capacity in landfills for solid
The Viridis Septage Bioreactor Landfill(TM) technology combines the
waste pumped from septic systems (known as septage) with garbage in solid
waste landfills. Doing so greatly accelerates the process of garbage
decomposition and biodegradation, extending the life of typical landfills
by years. But, the benefits to the environment go much further, including:
-- Cleaner water, by reducing and hopefully eliminating the practice of
spreading septic waste on fields, which often contaminates surface
water, lakes, rivers, streams, and groundwater recharge zones with
dangerous contaminants and pathogenic biological agents commonly found
in septic tank waste.
-- Safer food supply, by halting the land application and spraying of
septic waste for disposal onto farm fields, a major source of
bacteriological contamination of crops and livestock.
-- One of the primary pathways by which food or water become
contaminated is from the release of such untreated sewage -- septic
tank waste -- into a drinking water supply or onto cropland, with
the result that people who unknowingly eat or drink such
contaminated sources of food and water become infected with disease.
-- In developing countries, most sewage is routinely discharged into
the environment, often on cropland. As of 2007, even in developed
countries there are periodic system failures resulting in a mode of
transmission for infectious agents such as E. coli, hepatitis,
cholera, polio, and rotavirus.
-- Cleaner air, with the increased capture and use of methane gas,
reducing this major source of greenhouse gas emissions along with its
contribution to climate change and global warming trends.
-- Renewable energy, using the steady supply of methane produced,
generating enough energy to power thousands of homes each year.
-- More efficient use of land, by extending the capacity and productive
life of existing landfills.
-- Better use of wastewater treatment plants, by channeling septic waste
away from municipal wastewater facilities, freeing up their capacity to
meet the growing needs of expanding populations.
-- Reduction of a septage hauler's disposal and permit fees, by providing
a cost-effective, environmentally approved, single location to dispose
of septic waste.
Using the Septage Bioreactor Landfill(TM) in existing landfill
operations dramatically enhances the landfill's profitably and offers
multiple benefits to surrounding communities. Viridis Waste Control, LLC,
sees this invention as a powerful advantage for consumers,
environmentalists, governments, and businesses who now have this patented
tool to enhance our environment and businesses.
Viridis Waste Control, LLC, based in Dublin, OH, is a privately held,
socially responsible company whose principals are experienced in
technology, development, operations, regulation, and marketing in the waste
industry. The company focuses on methods of landfill operations that reduce
the negative impact of waste on the environment.
