As the alternative energy industry argues who the winners and losers are in renewable based energy it is fair to say that consumers are so far unimpressed.  This is not to say that there isn’t progress being made by the industry, rather no one has yet to power their livelihoods on anything other than energy substantially generated from fossil fuels.  There are way’s to buy renewable energy credits and be a “green” consumer but there is no real way to differentiate where your energy is actually coming from.  E-85 and Bio-Diesl are good ways to reduce ones carbon footprint but our energy consumption is much greater than just our transportation needs.

Energy is one of the most important commodities of our society and economy.  However, It is ironic that the importance for us to have continuous and reliable energy has failed to launch much ingenuity or alternative in the past decades.  As the United States and Europe begin to face the reality that fossil fuels cannot be the only solution to our energy consumption, Precision Pipe has developed breakthrough technology which has the potential to change the way the world powers itself in the coming century.

Just this week Precision Pipe has successfully operated a 25 k/W generator set, for several hours, entirely powered by sewage sludge.  A bunch of nice people have, albeit unknown to them, created 1/10th of a megawatt of electricity by simply doing their business and flushing their toilets.  The potential this technology has is to take the worst of our waste problems and create a value added energy source.  This would be a first, both fiscally and physically as other groups have produced renewable energy from sewage before.  However, until now no one has been able to do it in a way that creates a positive cash flow and a reasonable ROI in a short amount of time.

Precision Pipe is in the position to bring to market this new technology which brings alternative to our communities energy needs. Suddenly, municipalities have a potential revenue stream off of what is now considered a liability.  Sewage sludge, garbage, biomass, and other waste streams have the potential to create electricity with minimal emissions, steam or heat, transportation fuels, and synthetic natural gas.  The life of a landfill will be multiplied many times over  and the volume of waste streams is reduced up to 80% of it’ s current volume. In addition to creating new revenue streams this would save cities and counties potentially millions of dollars in transportation and new land fill costs.

Although this technology isn’t the perfect solution for every application, it is however, a viable solution and a true alternative to energy needs and waste disposal problems today. This technology is ready to change the way the world powers itself.
