Here is the problem we are addressing.
Open Dumpsites are a global problem. There are approximately 350 recognized open dump sites globally. They receive roughly 40% of the world’s waste and they serve about 3.5 – 4 billion people. That's half of the world's population.
The 50 biggest dumpsites directly affect the daily lives of 64 million people, a population the size of France, and indirectly affect half the worlds population
There have been and still are international calls for solutions to solve this escalating global health emergency. Green Fire has the solution.
While the risk of disease and illness to millions of people living in the immediate vicinity of open dumpsites is cause for concern in its own right, the impact of the gases and toxins being released into the atmosphere by burning the waste has global consequences.
Our intent is to achieve a coordinated response to the issue through a global alliance of organizations capable of delivering real change. Unless we do, the problem will exponentially accelerate as the global population increases
We are Green Fire
Green Fire is a passionate multi-disciplinary organization specializing in carefully engineered waste Remediation and Reclamation.
A number of years ago our group came together with a focus on developing ways of economically resolving the global epidemic of health risks facing society from waste. The result is Green fire Engineered Reclamation.
Green Fire Engineered Reclamation is an engineering company, made up of entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and academic experts focused on the world's waste problem initially the open landfills.
We pride ourselves on our ability as a collective group to integrate all appropriate technologies, Green Fire's as well as third party technologies. We integrate technologies to build the best possible solution for the landfill and the local community.
We are focused on landfill mining.. With our technologies we are able to reclaim and re-purpose landfill real-estate by first removing the raw and useful materials from what has been rejected and secondly generating power from the remainder leaving only inert material to be used for manufacturing.
What we do is process the waste through the “application of heat.”
Green Fire has a patented technology several years in development and with several million dollars invested.. It is now ready to be taken into useful production.
The Green Fire Technology is an efficient electrochemical system powered by electricity that produces an intense field of radiant energy, a plasma, that causes the breaking apart of the molecular bonds of solid, liquid and gaseous compounds of materials both hazardous and nonhazardous.
With the Green Fire system, waste materials are prepared and fed into a first phase gasification chamber that operates at temperatures of approximately 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit.
The heat of the first stage plasma gasifier transforms the organic (carbon-based) materials into an ultra-clean, synthetic gas, called syngas. The clean syngas is then converted into transportation fuels such as ethanol and diesel, or industrial products like hydrogen and methanol. The syngas is used as a substitute for natural gas for heating and is used for electricity generation.
After the first phase, the waste materials flow into a second closed chamber where they are superheated to temperatures between 10,000 and 20,000 degrees Fahrenheit using an electricity – conducting gas called plasma.
In this secondary stage of the Green Fire process, inorganic (non-carbon-based) materials are transformed into environmentally inert raw materials.
That brings us to the recovered materials
These inert recovered materials will be re-purposed to enhance the local communities with appropriate technologies that include 3D Printing for site specific manufacturing and fabrication. The ultimate focus is creating a local manufacturing business for the betterment of community commerce.
Green Fire will provide the education and training, to local qualified individuals and professionals. All education provided will be supported by a mentoring program until a comfort level for independent operations has been reached at which point support and oversight will be minimizes to an as needed basis.
We build small low cost villages with our processes and materials. We provide designs to manufacture low cost housing for the local village.
We estimate that in most cases that 3D printing will best serve this process but it will be site specific based on the resources available.
Our villages are designed for a population range from of 50 to 150 individuals, although some are smaller, and larger villages of up to 2,000 individuals can exist as networks of smaller sub-communities.
These villages are provided electricity, fuels and clean water utilities as well as training and communication systems from Green Fire operations.
Green Fire Villages
Green Fire Villages are intentional villages whose goal is to become completely autonomous and more socially, economically and environmentally safe.
Who populates these initial villages?
Green Fire staff and employees, but most importantly the Landfill Pickers, and additional community support personnel such as medical, and emergency staff.
It is the people of the village that provide the labor for Green Fire operations.
There are approximately 15 million people who directly survive on and make the landfill an integral part of their lifestyle. These people have formed and are a part of a global organization. The Landfill Pickers are the initial target of Green Fire.
It is our intent to enhance the living standard of these people and the surrounding communities.
