GIPO Marketplace

Sustainable Waste Power Systems offers a technology that is truely sustainable. Utilizing the ever growing amount of garbage being stored by the United States as fuel, GIPO Plants meet and exceed Grid Parity and increases overall recovery of our municiple waste.

Current Renewable Energy Market Conditions

SWPS finds itself in two major industry segments, electricity production and waste processing.  Overall, SWPS is well placed to compete effectively in these markets.  The U.S. Energy Information Administration released the “Annual Energy Outlook 2012 Early Release Overview”.  According to this report, the price of natural gas continues to put tremendous pressures in the electrical production segment in general and the renewable energy segment in particular.  This is not expected to change soon.  According to the EIA, “U.S. production of natural gas is expected to exceed consumption early in the next decade”.  This coupled with the projection that electrical demand will grow at a 0.8 percent rate over the next decade puts enormous pressure on the electrical market to produce electricity at low wholesale rate thus making it more difficult for renewable energy sources achieve “Grid Parity”.

Current Municipal Solid Waste Conditions

According to an EPA report, In 2010 the United States generated almost 250 million tons of garbage or 4.43 pounds per person.  From this, over 85 million tons were recovered through recycling, composting or waste-to-energy or 1.51 pounds per person.  2007 marked the high point in garbage generation by the United States; over 255 million tons or 4.64 pounds per person. Though this may look like good news, a closer look at the data tells us what has happened. While the total amount of garbage generation has fallen by 2.2%, the amount of garbage generation per person has droped 4.6% and the amount of garbaged recovered has remained around 1.5 pounds per person. In fact, the amount of garbaged recovered per person in the United States has remained at this level for about 10 years.
