While single stream recycling and gasification call for large-scale industrial facilities, IST Energy says its new Green Energy Machine (GEM) can do both on site at any location.
The new waste-to-energy conversion system can process at least two tons of trash daily, the company claims, turning post-consumer waste into electricity and gas heat. The four-stage waste processor takes in paper, plastic, food, wood and agricultural materials, converts the waste stream into fuel pallets, and breaks them down into generator-bound Producer Gas. IST says that GEM is also carbon negative and powers itself with the clean energy it produces, supplying users with a self-sustaining alternative energy source. "This model can save businesses, institutions and municipalities hundreds of thousands of dollars annually," said Stu Haber, president and CEO of IST Energy.
