How Does Ecogensus Help?
When Ecogensus systems are deployed, they divert waste away from the landfill, where there are nearly equal emissions of CO2 and methane. A single Model EGS-5000L can prevent 20 tons of waste from being landfilled per day, or 7,000 tons per year (based on 350 days/year operation). The resulting Ecogensus fuel can replace coal in power plants, industrial boilers or cement factories. This keeps coal in the ground, preventing the associated CO2 emissions. The carbon emissions from the coal-replacement fuel would have occurred anyway at the landfill, but about half of it would have been in the form of far worse methane. While Ecogensus’ technology can enable near-term, significant greenhouse gas reductions, we remain committed to continuing our work to improve and achieve even better results each day.
