BRI Process Benefits
The concept that today’s waste streams can become tomorrow’s liquid and electric energy supersedes all other solutions in our quest for energy independence.
While converting carbon-based material into ethanol, the BRI Renewable Energy Process will:
- Make possible the consistent, low-cost co-production of ethanol and electrical energy, while assisting municipalities in dealing effectively with some of their most vexing problems—the disposal of urban wastes and sewage sludge, and the proliferation of landfills.
- Revolutionize the disposal of such organic materials as municipal solid waste, agricultural residues, animal wastes, used tires and plastics.
- Provide an alternative to landfills and extend by up to 80% the useful lives of those currently in use.
- Respond to government mandates that call for the introduction of renewable fuels and the generation of “green” power.
- Utilize some of the world’s most abundant resources to profitably produce fuel-grade ethanol, a truly sustainable liquid energy source, priced competitively with gasoline.
- Make the nations of the world less dependent on imported oil.
- Provide “green collar” jobs for the domestic work force.
- Make an important and lasting improvement in the environment, reducing greenhouse gas emissions from such sources as fossil fuels, landfill gas (methane), internal combustion automobile engines, coal-fired power plants and the decomposition of urban wastes, dead trees and agricultural residues.
- Dispose of a meaningful portion of the world’s organic wastes, and do so with minimal ground, air or water emissions.
