ACDA’s Inaugural Distiller’s Convention March 13-15, 2014 in Denver

Sustainable Waste Power Systems (“SWPS”) is pleased to announce our attendance ACDA’s Inaugural Distiller’s Convention March 13-15, 2014 in Denver.  SWPS will be giving a presentation on partnerships with breweries, distilleries, and wineries to install GIPO Modular Core (“ModuCore”) systems to process distillation mash waste and provide heat to the processing facility. The ModuCore unit will be able to destroy the wet grain waste in a clean and effective manner leaving only clean water and fertilizer grade mineral ash.  The process of waste destruction will provide nearly all of the heat required by the distilling process while eliminating energy and cost associated with waste dewatering and disposal. About ACDA: The American Craft Distillers Association is a Trade Association organized and operated exclusively by licensed craft distillers to promote the common business and regulatory interests of and to improve the business conditions for craft distilling in the United States. ACDA’s mission as a not-for-profit Trade Association is to promote and protect craft distilling in North America. About DSTILL: DSTILL is a weeklong (March 10-16, 2014) experience of American small-batch distillers featuring spirit tastings and craft cocktail events in Denver, Colorado.

Demonstration for Tuthilltown Spirits

Sustainable Waste Power Systems’ GIPO technology has many applications.  In what we like to call The GIPO Technology Advantage, our technology has the unique ability to solve a wide range of common problems across many different industries.  From agribusiness to the medical industry, our products are specially tailored to target a process inefficiency and provide an appropriately scaled solution.  These solutions greatly reduce environmental impact and overall production costs. On July 9th, 2013 we’ll demonstrate our ModuCore system solution to Tuthilltown Spirits, an award winning distillery in New York.  The ModuCore system may be used by itself to destroy agricultural waste while providing heat, fertilizer, and clean water.  Tuthilitown is a forward thinking operation, and we appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate to them the various efficiencies we can bring to their operations through our...

Sustainable Waste Power Systems is Engineering Without Borders

Sustainable Waste Power Systems is proud to support our Assistant Chief Engineer Joseph Zambito as he travels to Uganda to support the Engineers Without Borders program. This marks Mr. Zambito’s third trip abroad to participate in the program. Joey has been actively involved with EWB since his days as an engineering student at Manhattan College. Joey serves as the technical mentor for Columbia University Engineers Without Borders Chapter – Uganda Project. Which involves the installation of Multi-Function Platforms (MFPs) in developing areas. Four Multi-Function Platforms (MFPs) have been installed as part of this program thus far, in Orungo and Usuk in 2009 and in Tubur and Anyara in 2010 and one rainwater harvesting system in Soroti.  Communities in the region have experienced many hardships due to armed conflict, cattle raids, and inconsistent harvests from climate change. However, strong leadership at the community level has allowed these communities to stay on their land in the face of these troubles while sustaining pride and respect for both their land and community members.  The overall goal of the MFP project is to increase the livelihoods of participating communities by decreasing the amount of time spent on hard labor and enabling the value addition of raw products through agricultural processing.  Decreasing the amount of time devoted to subsistence farming and increasing income generation through this project will provide the time and funds necessary for individuals to obtain an education or pursue community initiatives.  The implementation of new  MFP’s will be phased over two trips with the goal of installing a total of four MFPs (two per trip) and assessing additional communities for future pilot program sites. Prior to joining SWPS, in 2012 Mr. Zambito was recognized by ENR New York as one of their top 20 engineers under 40. In addition to his work with EWB, Joey has worked on award winning projects improving heating and domestic hot water systems for underserved residents in New York City’s public housing projects, and provided critical disaster relief as part of FEMA teams responding to natural disasters around the United States. We are proud to have engineers like Joey Zambito as part of our team, and we look forward to bringing our revolutionary technologies to the developing world....

Replacement of the Prototype’s Gasifier Coil

Our future customers will be best served by the most rugged and reliable systems possible. Here at Sustainable Waste Power Systems, we are a constantly evaluating our process and products for components that can be improved, even on our mobile prototype. Our most recent upgrade is the replacement of the prototype’s gasifier coil. The new coil is currently at Alstrom’s shop where it is being installed into the prototype this week. The old coil experienced a failure at the end of our first demonstration tour. The failure has been attributed to tack weld that connected each loop of the coil to the next. The weld caused a structural weakness in the steel that was exacerbated by periods of excessive heat due to a pressure problem with the old slurry injection system. The pressure issue has been resolved which should prevent any dry firing issues and periods of excessive heat for the new coil. In addition, the new coil is being manufactured from 310 Stainless Steel which will withstand higher temperatures and features an improved design that does not require the tack welds between coil loops. The new coil was manufactured by Zink Corporation in Harrisburg PA. Our new and improved prototype will be up and running soon, and we’re looking forward to getting back on the...

Press Release Regarding Demonstration in Louisiana

Download the original Press Release 20130417 For Immediate Release Sustainable Waste Power Systems Announces Demonstration of GIPO Process in Plaquemines Parish Bringing Renewable Energy to South Louisiana   Ridgefield, Connecticut— April 17, 2013 — Today Sustainable Waste Power Systems announced that it will host a series of demonstrations of its waste to energy process in Belle Chasse, Louisiana.  The demonstrations will begin April 22 and continue until April 25.  Anyone interested in attending one of these demonstrations should contact Chris Gillespie. Positive Customer Impact This waste to energy process, called the GIPO® process or Garbage In Power Out® is an innovative and unique waste to energy system that accepts most municipal solid waste as well as sewage and medical waste then converts that waste into renewable energy cleanly and efficiently. “Plaquemines Parish is uniquely qualified to take full advantage of the GIPO technology,” said Chris Gillespie, President and CEO of Sustainable Waste Power Systems.  “We can bring over 20 full time long term jobs to the parish and decrease overall waste management costs.  Building the plant near the waste water treatment facility increases the overall capacity of sewage treatment and positions a power plant in the Parish to support future economic development.” Products The GIPO plant is a modular designed system that is sized to match the amount of waste produced by a community.  The system accepts most municipal waste and sewage and converts that into clean, stable and efficient electricity.  A renewable energy source not dependent upon the weather! SaniVert is a smaller unit that is designed to process and reduce medical and pharmaceutical waste into an inert ash 90% smaller than the original size. About Sustainable Waste Power Systems Founded in 2008, Sustainable Waste Power Systems has developed world class waste to energy technology.  The company offers two products; the GIPO Plant and the SaniVert. ### GIPO, Garbage In Power Out and SaniVert are registered trademarks of Sustainable Waste Power Systems in the United States and/or other countries.
