Doing Our Part When It Comes To Renewable Energy
Last year, about 10% of the country’s total energy use came from renewable energy sources. Experts and researchers predict our planet could be fully powered by renewable energy in the next 2 to 4 decades. What does this mean exactly? Well, it means that our energy would come from things that don’t run out, eliminating our reliance on things like crude oil. Instead, electricity and power would come from sources such as wind, solar, water and yes, waste. That’s right, the sewage and grease you produce on a daily basis can actually be transformed into a renewable energy source.
Way! Thanks to an amazing machine called a methane digester, organic waste can be transformed into power. Let me explain. A digester works much like your stomach in that stuff goes into an airtight vessel where anaerobic digestion takes place. As the materials decompose, methane and other gases are produced. This combination of gases, known as biogas is then coupled with a generator to produce energy.
Digesters are earth-friendly because they reduce the amount of methane gas and other greenhouse gases that escapes into the atmosphere. Methane gas is more than 20 times more harmful to the planet than carbon dioxide, and it’s considered to be a chief component in global warming. Digesters capture all this so damaging gases doesn’t pollute and stink up the air. It does all this, along with creating a ton of clean energy.
We Don’t Waste Waste
As our name implies, we care about our planet. It’s our goal to uphold a reputation worthy of our name, which is why we invest in the latest and greatest means of environmental maintenance. Our investment into innovations like the anaerobic digester proves how much we care about Earth. We also have a team of talented engineers and technicians working to incorporate new and effective ways to clean and recycle waste materials. You can trust us to do our part to provide sustainable methodologies to ensure a safe place for future generations to thrive.
