Powers Energy of America, Inc. is an exciting new enterprise created to commercialize emerging bioethanol technology for the production of clean biofuel
and electricity from a wide range of low-cost carbon materials,
especially municipal solid waste.
Our primary focus is the commercialization of the world’s leading second generation bioethanol
production processes to serve the American renewable transportation fuels market. Our commercial plants efficiently convert the carbonaceous portion of municipal wastes and organic commercial and industrial wastes, into clean, renewable bioethanol fuel. The bioethanol produced delivers substantial greenhouse gas savings compared to gasoline and conventional waste disposal strategies. Our licensed technology allows clean, renewable fuel production in an environmentally-friendly way, without using our nation’s food crops. Our process is supported by pilot plant operations that have been operating continuously on a range of waste materials.
We use commercially available waste transportation
and processing equipment, combined with proven gasification and
distillation equipment to efficiently produce bioethanol for use in our
nation's existing automobile fleet. We introduce proprietary biocatalytic
fermentation systems and cleaning/cooling equipment developed in the
chemical industry to produce the bioethanol and electricity from
synthetic gas produced in the gasifiers. Municipal waste is the
perfect feedstock for producing green energy in a world where global
warming and an exploding population are major concerns.
And more importantly, our facilities are environmentally
friendly and do not produce harmful emissions.
Gasification is the cleanest method available today for disposal of
municipal waste. We can completely eliminate methane
emissions inherent to landfills while mitigating the concern of
long-term liabilities that landfills pose to our communities.
Compared to using gasoline in your vehicles and putting your waste in
landfills, our biofuel will reduce
your greenhouse gas emissions by up to 100%!
