Regional Energy and Waste Streams Management Plan
This Plan is available for Joint Venture
For further information please contact: MPCEE
The following is an overview of a business concept for the development of a regional energy and waste management plan. The concept involves the development of a joint venture between National, Regional and Private Interests for the recovery and recycling of valuable energy and nutrient resources. The concept involves identifying recoverable and recyclable waste resources, concentrating them into feedstock at the site of generation and transporting the feedstock to a regional site for conversion into energy or beneficial products that can be utilised by consumers within the region.
Potential sites can be identified for developing the central regional processing concept. Environmentally sound technologies are utilised for the recovery of energy and for the beneficial recycling of fibres and essential nutrients. The products can be utilised in the production of electricity, agricultural products and fibreboard for construction purposes.
Who is involved?
MPCEE was founded in 1972 as an environmental management consultancy, specialising in environmental protection and pollution control within developing countries. Today, MPCEE has agreements to work alongside global technical manufacturing concerns, all of whom have technology in place to deal with the dewatering and drying of multiple waste streams down to zero percent moisture. It is also now possible to take anything and everything that is carbon-based and reform it to a liquid and gaseous energy.
A regional energy and waste management plan, although not new, this is the first time that it can be taken forward in a viable commercial sense, because advanced dewatering, drying and desalinisation technology, along with reforming technology are now available that will allow capital and operating costs to be substantially reduced.
MPCEE operates in a niche market. That is identifying the need for sustainable development required at national, regional and international levels, using thirty-five years of professional skills and expertise in environmental protection and pollution control. Through the identification process it is possible to (a) bring together the appropriate technologists to develop the plan using the Best Available Techniques (BAT), (b) link and pool the relative necessary hardware resources, and (c) bring in the reputable knowledge and understanding of banking and financial institutions to discuss any financial commitments the end user may require.
Our technical partners come from
Europe and the
Waste Management Project
The domestic waste project allows for advanced technical solutions, currently operating in separate global environments to come together ‘like a glove’ to deal with the vast quantities of waste that is on a continual upward spiral. The opportunity to involve municipal, regional and national organisations, in both the public and private sectors, will show the level of commitment by a country's authorities to combat the ever-increasing problems of excessive domestic waste.
The Regional Energy and Waste Management Plan also allows for industrial waste to be introduced into the waste stream. Technology is included to deal with the decontamination of drilling mud and refinery waste streams. All the technologies are patented, including waste recycling equipment for separating and reclaiming products from packaging.
Sourcing financial providers form part of our remit, but the due diligence that is undertaken to protect their assets is very strict and will form part of any investigation of those involved with the project. If a joint venture with inward investment is to be included, this must be made absolutely clear from the outset of discussions.
Resource Management is involved in the promotion, consultation, and development of:
1. Recyclable and Bio-conversion of waste solids
2. Production of Alternative fuels for Energy, particularly looking at biomass
3. Production of Natural and Bio-based soil amendments and mulches
4. Production of Commercial Bio-enhanced Soil Amendments and Enhanced Fertilisers
5. Production of Natural and Organic Based Crop Predators Shields
By utilising (to name a few) all plant life and non-volatile solid waste:
1. Surplus agricultural crops (not used in the human and animal food chain):
b) Sugar beets
f) Bi-products for the production of bio-oils e.g., palm oil, glycerine, etc
2. Commercially generated manure and process waste:
a) Dairy manure,
b) Stemmed mint,
d) Potato Processing waste,
e) Fruit Processing waste
g) Crop seed residues
h) Landfill segregated waste;
3. Landscaping, Lawn and Garden generated green waste:
c) Grass clippings
To manufacture products that can be utilized in the production of:
1) Fuel for direct energy production:
a) Hydrogen syngas and pure hydrogen
d) Propanol, and other related alcohols;
2) Co-Generated Energy;
3) Organic Acids for dust control;
4) Residual building materials:
5) Soil amendments and fertilizer for:
a) Commercial crops;
b) Mitigation/reclamation/stabilization/re-vegetation of environmentally sensitive areas;
c) Horticultural plants; and
The identification of potential central regional processing points will be made easy, because of the plants adaptability to utilize the technologies for processing of incoming waste and production of manufactured products and by-products. However, the concept can be scaled to fit a number of regional sites and is ideal for remote and isolated areas, islands and back up for existing unstable and unreliable electricity supplies.
The success of this plan will be governed by the joint venture interest and by developing a contractual agreement with the industries, which will generate the bulk of the resource that will be utilized in the plant.
The benefit to the regional community is:
1. Recycling and renewal of valuable resources,
2. Generation of heat, power and energy,
3. Removal of agricultural, commercial, and municipal waste, which can impact air and water quality,
4. Recovery of plant nutrients,
5. Production of alternative fibre resources.
Our goals are:
1) Development of the Plan:
a. Identify National, Regional and Private co-operators;
b. Develop the Waste Generator Cooperative; and
c. Identify the Regional feedstocks and locations for the Local Concentrators.
2) Develop feedstock base:
a. Identify growers and nature of the feedstock,
b. Identify the quantities, and
c. Contract the local concentrators.
3) Engineer the Reformer Technology for heat, power and energy for both off-grid and supplementary electricity to existing supplies
a. By Type of Biomass
b. By kW/mW Required
4) Process Development:
a) Local preconditioning
i) Pulverizing Air Dryer (PAD) - The PAD allows for the concentrating and dewatering of high moisture waste (up to 85% moisture), producing a low moisture concentrated feedstock (under 10% moisture), which can be easily transported to a regional processing plant. The end result of the dewatering process is the production of a uniform granule size (minus 10 to minus 300 mesh) without any loss of carbohydrates, protein or nutrient. These dry units are designed to process 10 wet tons (20% solids)/hr. In addition to the dry units liquid units are available which can process 300 tons of 2% solids
b) Regional preconditioning
i) Second stage Pulverizing Air Dryers - Dries the material to 1-2 % moisture.
ii) Anaerobic and Fermentation Digesters, allows for the ability to extract easily digestible simple sugars and carbohydrates into methane, ethanol, or other organic simple organic acids.
c) Residue Processing
i) Residue Stabilization
(1) Microbial stabilization
(2) Base/Acid enhancement
ii) Product Processing
(1) Amendment enhancement
(2) Fertilizer enhancement
(3) Fibre enhancement
d) Post process air and water treatment
i) Continuous wastewater treatment, or
ii) Sequencing Batch Reactor.
5) Process/Operation Development:
a. Evaluation of Recyclable Resources
b. Development of Beneficial Reuse Products
c. Products Evaluation
d. Product Production
e. Product Research,
f. Application, Monitoring, and Evaluation.
6) Product Marketing:

By bringing together and using different technologies, it is not possible to use one particular plan for one location and set of circumstances, and then take it to another location and expect the same favourable and beneficial results, should the environmental circumstances not be the same. Therefore, we endeavour to bring to your attention the expertise, technology and resources that are required and will be involved to cater for any project that a client intends to fulfil. We can then show that it not only caters for the exact environmental protection and pollution control requirements that the international community as a whole expects, but will go on to show also that it is possible to achieve sustainable development and, in the course of it, make excessive profits in doing so.
Private sector initiatives that bring together global operators, to achieve the required end results, necessitates financial, professional and commercial risks to be taken, but these risks must be based on taking informed decisions. MPCEE has obtained, through its professional approach to such operations, a level of credibility second to none. MPCEE, therefore, offers potential users of the Plan its full service of skills, expertise and commercialism in order to ensure that a municipal waste project is both a commercial and operational success.
