As populations continue to grow, waste management and its disposal has become one of the major global issues of the twenty-first century. Managing waste in any community is an important part of providing a safe and healthy living environment for the people. Unfortunately the world has a strong dependence on landfill for waste management with more than half (54%) of all solid waste being deposited in landfill in 2009. It is estimated that 70% of municipal waste, 56% of commercial & industrial waste, and 43% of construction & demolition waste goes to landfill. The environmental problems caused by landfills are numerous with landfill’s producing emissions and substances which are often toxic. Waste, however, does not have to be a liability and can in fact be a valuable resource. Instead of land filling or incinerating municipal solid waste, plastics and other industrial waste streams, whether hazardous or non-hazardous, GEI MEKONG’s patented technologies, can process waste and produce green energy.
