Existing facility owners- Do you run a mill that produces wood waste? If so, don’t send the waste to a landfill ever again. Whether you know it or not, you’re producing biomass fuel as a byproduct of your everyday activities. A biomass engineering expert can help you set up a system to convert your wood waste into biomass electricity.
Garbage is inexhaustible it seems and a growing concern for municipalities. I grew up on Long Island and back in the forties they use to dump it in a big pile and light a match to it. The resultant stink was quite memorable. Growth of Nassau and Suffolk counties of course led to some deep thinking. There are old sand mines they started to dump in but they stunk too. Several towns tried several types of incinerators which was an improvement lost their licenses due to emissions. Finally they built 2 large plants that used technology developed to destroy chemical weapons to burn the trash and use the heat to make steam to run generators. They charge to unload the trash then turn around and sell the power.
In northwest Montana, Flathead Lake contains more than 200 square miles of water and 185 miles of shoreline. It is the largest natural freshwater lake.
The power is the one we are eagerly waiting for. The reliability of fossil fuel for long is not dependable. The disappearance or the slow depletion of fossil fuel is a reality.
The first hydro power plant in the United States was introduced in 1882. It was placed in Wisconsin. Most people do not realize that a great deal of the early electricity and power in the United States once came from such hydropower plants. In 1940 approximately half of the electricity used came from this source. Later it was replaced by the use of coal.
Green energy has proven, centuries before the extensive use of fossil products, that it can supply the world’s need for energy. Solar power alone can have as much power as all other sources combined. This simple truth would offer anyone’s doubt a reversing of look at the situation.
It can take years to build the dams for a hydroelectric plant to start operating though. Many people who live in the vicinity of a proposed hydroelectric plant are not happy about it either. They worry about flooding and they often find their homeowner’s insurance goes up due to that possibility.
