GLOBAL CLEAN ENERGY, QUARTERLY REPORT Ended Sept 30, 2017: 3rd Quarter Update

Alternative Energy - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 08:48
North American Market and Drivers In the U.S., the field of waste management is becoming more closely aligned with resource management, and this is in large part because the way we view "waste" is dramatically shifting. New technologies are being developed that allow more materials to be recovered and new value created from those materials. Much more of our waste stream is considered to be valuable scrap material and new technologies such as automation for materials separation are allowing the industry to tap into these resources and create value out of what was previously considered non-valuable material. Conversion technologies, specifically those designed for plastics and tires, offer the same potential to create value for landfills. Tires to Fuel (TtF) technologies offer the potential to manage landfill-bound tires as a resource to create a valuable alternative fuel source. At this time, a large portion of the tire and plastic waste streams is still treated as "waste," and there is a large opportunity to recover more of the tires and plastics used in the United States.
