MANILA, Philippines, Jan. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The rotting garbage in landfills produces methane, a greenhouse gas that is 21 times worse than carbon dioxide. The world's annual dumping of 1.6 billion tons of trash is a sustainable source of power! Trash, rubbish, whatever you call it, the 1.6 billion tonnes of stuff the world throws away each year -- 250 kilograms per person -- is a big potential source of clean green energy.
Ronald Flynn founder of Spectrum Blue Steel said, "We are able to take that resource 'garbage,' and turn it into real profits financially for our partners and shareholders. Spectrum Blue Steel is now building the first material recycling facility and Biosphere power plant in San Fernando, Philippines, which turns waste into green energy."
Spectrum's Biosphere green technology is meant as an alternative source of power that reduces fossil fuels and demonstrates less damage to humans, animals and plant health, as well as damage to the world, in general.
The consumption habits of modern consumer lifestyles are causing a huge worldwide waste problem. The Philippines have many overfilled landfills so government officials are looking for solutions. The landfills in the Philippines have created a devastating impact on its ecosystems and cultures throughout the republic.
True Green Energy Group is promoting world power and green technologies through the Biosphere MKV because it has developed new ways to recycle waste while generating electricity from landfill waste and doing so with zero pollution.
On December 18th issued under Presidential Decree 1586 "R03-0912-0226" certified that Spectrum Blue Steel Corporation has been granted an environmental compliance certificate (ECC) for the biosphere gasification facility project located at Brgy. Lara, City of San Fernando, Pampanga, by the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) through the Environmental Management Bureau Region 3, which was also approved by Renaldo E. Garcia Chief Environmental Impact Assessment & Management Division and Engineer Carlos J. Magno the Regional Director.
The certificate covers the operation of the biosphere facility group (11-c.5.f) that will utilize and dispose of 172 tons of fresh waste per day or 62,952 per year to generate 10MW of electric capacity in a area of (17,000) square meters covered by public and private partnership. According to the certificate the projects geographical coordinates and location are North Latitude 15.04'28.44" East Longitude 120.37'27'.45".
Ronald Flynn went on to say, "The enormous increase in the quantum and diversity of waste materials generated by human activity and their potentially harmful effects on the general environment and public health, have led to an increasing awareness about an urgent need to adopt scientific methods for safe disposal of wastes. While there is an obvious need to minimize the generation of wastes and to reuse and recycle them, the technologies for recovery via MRF system and the Biosphere gasification plant will now play a vital role in mitigating the problems in the Philippines."
Despite being an attractive technological option for waste management, the gasification-based process for municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment is not free. A complete system including the material recycling facility and the Biosphere MKV engineered, installed and turned on is a estimated at USD $13,500,000 dollars.
In the current contractual transactions with the San Fernando and Santa Rosa, Philippines, both cities gave SBS the land and the landfills for twenty five years including tipping fees and 100% of the recyclables with the right to extend. The project build-out including the roads, fences, MRF and the Biosphere MKV system were funded by Spectrum Blue Steel, TGEG, shareholders and partners.
Spectrum Blue Steel's strategy is to "de-carbonize" the electric power generation industry by shifting to non-fossil fuel-based energy sources, specifically energy-from-waste. This follows the Energy Policy Act of 2005 which confirmed energy-from-waste is renewable, and the Philippine Renewable Energy Law (RA 9513) of the Philippines.
Spectrum is a domestic corporation duly registered under the laws of the Philippines and holds a license to the Biosphere Technology from Global Environmental Energy Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: GEECF). Global is a fully integrated energy company whose interests include electrical power generation, oil and gas exploration and production, clean coal and waste management technologies.
