Cash Development Bids on Atlanta Green Acres Project

It is the 21st Century and change is what propels this world forward into centuries for the future. The world is growing exponentially and human activity is the vital piece in which we as humans can either make the choice to actively change to better our world in amazing activities or be stuck in a routine that does not allow change to propel us forward into the future.

Specific activities or lack of change is especially apparent in the waste industry. For centuries, we had no infrastructure to move our human waste or product remains away from our living areas; we now have an infrastructure prominent here in America that helps us move our “leftovers” away from our living areas. Based on science and innovative, “outside the box engineering” we have also recognized that there is stored energy in everything we consider “waste” and that stored potential energy (BTU’s) can be altered for another use. We first recognized the potential of “recycling”, and “reusing” materials before the Industrial Revolution; and as we fought World Wars and materials became scarce, technologies changed to help us better utilize our resources. The motto of REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE is still the fundamental mindset humans must consider when setting sustainable, environmental goals to achieve every day so that future generations have the same or better materials to work with in the future.

We are at a tipping point in our communities. With large population growth and consumption, we recognize we no longer can bury our “waste” in a hole and not consider its potential energy. We must sort, separate, and convert our discarded materials into either new products of the same type, a different product or fuel to create energy.

This closed-loop, zero waste project is the image of what every municipality should strive to accomplish with recovered materials. Municipal Solid Waste is not in fact disposal in any sense of the word. Everything we throw away has a value in energy and/or monetary. How well we recapture that embodied energy is a matter of technology. The technology we want to utilize for this project are among the best waste to energy solutions in the world. Thirty acres is a generous amount of land that our team needs to produce/recapture used commodities, but we have a plan to grow with additional feedstock acquired from surrounding areas.
