The Prototype Exhibition

Ridgefield

Demonstration in Ridgefield, Connecticut

On April 15th, we successfully showcased the prototype in Ridgefield, Connecticut.   We conducted a general demonstration for various town and state officials as well as local waste management companies and hospitals.  The demonstration was held at Ridgefield Highway & Public Services, 60 South Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877 (map).  The First Selectman, Rudy Marconi, and several members of the town’s engineering and public works department were there to observe the demonstration. Reaction was very positive.

“I’m not an engineer,” First Selectman Rudy Marconi said after the successful demonstration. “On paper, it makes sense — the cost component of it. There’s tremendous savings to be made in the long term and now we have to determine what exactly they are going to be. We are trying to go about reducing the size of our sewer plant in town, but want to do so with the least amount of damage to the town’s ecosystem.”

New York BlendWe successfully converted a mixture of waste products modeled on a survey of New York’s municipal waste performed in 2005. We call this our “New York Blend”.   You can see a video of us mixing this up at:  Mixing Up Synthetic Municipal Solid Waste.

Louisiana

Demonstration In Plaquemines Parish

You can read the Ridgefield Press article at:  ‘Garbage In, Power Out,’ says energy system developer.

Also in April, we took the prototype to Louisiana to demonstrate the unit to the Bryon Williams, the Director of Public Service for Plaquemines Parish and several of the parish councilman and possible investors. The demonstrations were well received and everyone is very interested in a possible GIPO plant, and the next steps forward.
