Our current energy situation will not be solved with one, cure-all solution. It will require a broad collection of sustainable and economical technologies. There are many proven options for renewable energy and biofuel technologies on the market today as outlined below.


Renewable Energy sources are characterized by high sustainability, low feedstock costs and minimal emissions in the following forms:

  • Waste-to-Energy
    Electricity or fuel can be produced through the direct incineration or gasification of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) from waste-water treatment plants or industrial, commercial, and household garbage. Waste-to-energy provides clean, renewable energy for a variety of users and eases the burden MSW places on landfills.

  • Landfill Gas
    Methane produced by the decomposition of waste is a highly polluting green house gas. Landfill gas operations capture methane and refine it to use in place of natural gas for electricity generation, vehicle fuel and heating.

  • Solar
    Photovoltaics produce electricity directly from sunlight and can be integrated into any building or utility system. Solar power can be harnessed anywhere from a rooftop installation to an expansive solar farm covering acres of land. Recent innovations in thin film technology make it possible to convert any surface into a clean, renewable power generator.

  • Wind
    Wind power is generated with the use of turbines. Modern turbines are available in a myriad of shapes, sizes and power generation capabilities based upon the available wind potential and the desired end use such as residential, commercial or large utility scale wind-farms.

  • Geothermal
    In areas of geothermal activity, conventional steam turbines are used to generate electricity. Rather than burn fossil fuels to produce steam, geothermal uses the latent heat of the Earth’s core.


Biofuels recycle existing carbon based feedstock into clean fuel in the following forms:

  • Biogas
    Biogas is produced by the anaerobic decomposition of various materials such as biomass, manure, sewage, municipal waste or energy crops. With proper treatment, it can provide a clean burning, renewable replacement to natural gas.

  • Biodiesel
    Natural oils and fats are converted into biodiesel which is a cleaner burning alternative to petroleum diesel. Jatropha, palm and soy-bean oils and most waste oils and fats such as rancid cooking oil, trap grease, lard, and tallow, which present a disposal hazard, can be converted to useful fuel.

  • Ethanol
    Waste cellulosic sources such as wood chips, plant and lawn clippings, organic municipal waste or purpose grown, high biomass yielding, plants like switchgrass and sugar cane can to be converted to ethanol. Ethanol can then be used in gasoline or flex-fuel engines as a cleaner alternative to oil-based gasoline.

  • Algae
    Algae convert atmospheric carbon-dioxide into oils that are collected and converted into biodiesel and other various biofuels. Algae can also be used to clean up industrial emissions, thereby protecting the environment.
