Impact Bioenergy is getting the attention of technologists all over the world with its portable, prefabricated, microdigester technology. This self-contained, quick deployment system converts food waste and other organic wastes into energy and fertilizer with zero waste. It’s an industrial biotech innovation.
- A Colombian Food Company is interested in using the bioenergy system for powering their operation using their own bakery waste.
- A Turkish engineering firm is interested in using it to help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills in Istanbul. They need compact local solutions where we can handle the waste at the source, especially restaurant and fast food waste.
- A Hong Kong venture capital firm is interested in converting waste into energy and is interested to invest funds into developing the technology for commercial release.
- A Canadian recycling company purchased the first commercial unit for converting urban curbside collected organic waste into new resources, and they are now the technology dealer in their province.
- A museum in Mexico City is interested in a working exhibit that shows how food waste from the local community can be converted in a live, real-time context as a teachable moment for the public and students in particular.
- A sustainability expert in Barcelona in interested in bringing the technology to Barcelona and the local farm to table network in the region.
- A technology company in New Delhi, India is working in the field of renewable energy especially solar and wind energy and is looking for anaerobic digesters for some of their clients who require such solutions out of necessity where they need ‘base load’ and ‘storable’ energy.
Impact’s President, Jan Allen, remarks, “This validates there is tremendous global need for local, community-based systems that can improve waste management, create renewable energy locally, and create fertilizer for local food production. It’s a rare and exciting opportunity to solve multiple problems with one act. This puts Seattle on the map as a source of clean tech innovation.”
Impact Bioenergy systems can process 25 to 925 tons per year of waste materials. Renewable energy can be in the form of building heat, hot water, radiant heat, light, electricity, and prime motion. Fertilizer can be in the form of liquid fertilizer, dried fertilizer, and compost.
Impact Bioenergy is also co-founder of Community Supported Biocycling; which is a community-based system for connecting food waste to job creation, zero waste, energy conservation, renewable energy production, carbon sequestration, and urban agriculture. The design is to build a food system that provides access to healthy, affordable organic food by engaging farmers, food/beverage businesses, communities and governments to build a resilient food ecosystem.
