Nassau, Bahamas [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Biosphere Development Corp., a subsidiary of Global Environmental Energy Corp. (GEECF), has licensed its green energy production technology to Global NRG Ltd.
The license agreements cover Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific islands and parts of Africa, including South Africa and Botswana. Global NRG has operating subsidiaries and close government connections in these areas, allowing the company to utilize Biosphere technology to generate green energy.
The Biosphere technology process gasifies solid waste into renewable energy, which is used to heat steam that drives an electricity-generating turbine. In simple language, municipal waste, a reoccurring feedstock, is used to produce energy. The power generated from waste is fed into a power grid, deriving carbon credits and simultaneously ridding the environment of household waste. The process can also use coal tailings, a waste material from coal mining, as a feedstock.
Global NRG is in negotiations with Australian state governments as well as Australia’s federal government. As the world’s largest coal exporter, Australia has an abundant supply of coal waste to use in electricity generation. Global NRG expects to sign agreements in the near future with several entities.
In South Africa, negotiations are underway with the Cape Town Council, which oversees a green city and wishes to provide low cost power to low-income families.
New Zealand, a traditionally green country, has embraced the Biosphere technology and is examining three installations. Global NRG has committed to produce 100,000 megawatts of electricity generation capacity per year using the process within two years, but expects to exceed this target by a significant margin.
