Waste to Energy Partnership for Asia

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Digital Energy & Farming Asia (DEFA) and US-based Entropic Energy signed an agreement to commercialize breakthrough waste-to-energy power generation technology in major cities across Asia. Entropic Energy is in final negotiations with a major Asian city to install a waste-to-energy plant that would process approximately 15,000 tons of municipal and other waste daily. The 300 MW plant would cost approximately $500 million with adjacent farming and other high profit businesses being arranged by DEFA. Entropic Energy’s patented technology produces a clean-burning by-product from the widest variety of processed waste. The product has the same BTU value as high-grade coal without the emission impurities of coal, said the company. Furthermore, the product is 50 to 80 percent more combustion-efficient than refuse-derived fuel (RDF), according to Entropic. This technology will also be used in two waste-to-energy plants to be constructed in Taiwan by the Quanta Consortium that includes Entropic Energy and DEFA as equity partners. DEFA will provide Entropic with experienced management, additional breakthrough technologies, and access to senior investment capital.
