Waste to energy programs could eliminate landfills and add $84.5 billion to U.S. economy

Municipal waste is big challenge for dwellers, industrials and municipalities worldwide. It is putrescent, odorous and contaminating our living space. Most of the solid wastes are biodegradable and could be recycling. However, the incumbent solid waste collection and management widely use poly package that causes the biodegradable solid waste and poly materials cross-contamination, complicate the components and devalue the waste. The main disposal of such waste is incinerate and landfill, but they are pollutant transfer. Taking landfill as an example, the leachate caused the land, surface water, ground water contamination and the landfill gas emission is a green house gas that causes global warm. Besides, the cost of such waste disposal and management are very high.

To remove the poly from the waste, get pure biodegradable waste fore recycle, lead to the solid waste automation, and reduce the cost of the waste disposal, the patented designed a technology, that introduce the method of fluidizing the solid waste with proportion water, change the waste from solid phase into flowing particles or liquid phase to satisfy pipeline evacuation that realized solid waste automatic evacuation, transportation and get the poly package free waste jam to produce renew energy methane and organic fertilizer. 

The process is: Separately putting the poly waste, paper waste and biodegradable waste into the specified containers of the waste fluidizing collector set indoor or outdoor, respectively fluidizing the wastes in the containers with proportioned water, alternately evacuating the fluidized wastes through the same connected pipeline into the regional collecting tanks, transporting the ploy waste and paper waste to the recycle plants, and biodegradable waste to the methane generating pool, the sludge is dewatered for organic fertilizer and the waste water disinfected for soilless growth liquid. The diagram following is showing the procedure:



The patented technology makes all of the wastes closed in. It is clean, facilitating and odorless. For the wastes going through the pipeline automatically without manual collection, that is largely reduce the cost of the waste management and disposal. Because the waste going through the pipeline without the poly package, the poly waste can never go into the nature and  risk the environment, we can widely use the poly without pollution.

...The Market value
Worldwide market need is huge basic of the statistics of the population in the world. There are 6,786,884,840 populations in the world according U.S. census bureau, and create 10 billion tons solid waste annually. The potential products market need will reach up to $1,000 billions, the service will value $30 billion annually. The renew methane will be 1,100 billion m3 and produce 1,500 million tons organic fertilize annually.

There are 307,560,395 population in United State of America according the U.S.A Census Bureau. They produce 300 million tons solidwast annually. The total cost of disposal is 13,388 million in 2008, therein collection 8,679 million, landfill 2,955 million, transfer 1,589 million, according WMI 2008 report.

According Canadian Statistics, in 2006, Canadians produced over 1000 kg of waste per person, up 8% from 2004. Of this total, 835 kg went to landfills or was incinerated while 237 kg was diverted from landfill. Overall, this translates into 35 million tones of waste handled by the waste management industry; 27 million tons of that waste was disposed in landfills or was incinerated and almost 8 million tons were diverted from disposal and processed through material recovery facilities or centralized composting operations. Approximately 22 million tons of waste came from non-residential sources in 2006 while the other 13 million tones were from residential sources. There are several factors that drive increases in the production of waste. Population growth, increased economic activity and rising incomes may be contributing factors. In an active economy, more goods and services are purchased by businesses and households. Goods have packaging that must be disposed or recycled or, the good itself may be discarded or recycled once it is used. Between 2004 and 2006, there was a 6% increase in GDP observed nationally. Total current expenditures by local governments in Canada increased to $2.0 billion in 2006 from $1.8 billion in 2004. At over $900 million, collection and transportation continued to make up the lion’s share of current expenditures in 2006. Operation of disposal facilities consumed the next largest share of the total amount of current expenditures at $419 million followed by tipping fees at $194 million. Current expenditures on the operation of recycling facilities increased by 47% to $171 million between 2004 and 2006. Capital expenditures totaled $312 million in 2006.

As on the analysis, the total potential market need will be value at $84.5 billion in North America, therein multiple waste fluidize collector $60 billion, automatic solid waste evacuation service 16.5 billion annually, methane product $5.5 billion annually, and fertilizer $2.5 billion annually.
