West Coast Energy is establishing a next-generation Landfill-to-fuels operation usinng proven technologies to convert municipal waste into renewable fuels.
- According to the EPA, Americans generate 300 million tons of solid waste every year, hauled into landfills across our country.
- Current recycling rate is 30% at best.
- 8% of discarded plastics are recycled.
- U.S. landfills are filled up.
- China no longer receives our “recyclable plastic”. 1.5 million metric tons of America’s “recyclable plastic” is dumped into the ocean off China’s coast each year.
- The Great Pacific Garbage Vortex, an area twice the size of Texas, spans waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan.
- Addressing this growing need, West Coast Energy is born.
- Launching West Coast Energy’s Pilot Plant, serviced by rail from several California waste and recycling sites, producing waste-derived renewable hydrogen, renewable natural gas, renewable fuels, and Gas to Power (Renewable Electricity).
Consumption, no matter how conscious, inevitably produces waste. Globally, we are creating 2.01 billion metric tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) annually. And that trend is set to continue.
With an initial focus on renewables, West Coast Energy is partnering with proven technology that converts municipal waste and landfill into ultra-low carbon renewable hydrogen, renewable natural gas, renewable fuels ( marine and aviation-grade ), and Gas to Power (Renewable Electricity). Research and tests indicate these burn at an 80% reduction in carbon to fossil fuel-based aviation fuels.
West Coast Energy is in discussions and establishing strategic partnerships with leading global companies to develop renewable, ultra low carbon renewables bio-refineries in California, Oregon, and Washington.
