Eco Energy International: Powering the Future!
Cost Effective, Eco-Friendly Municipal Solid Waste to Energy



Waste Management is Critical

Municipal Solid Waste(MSW) management is one of the world’s biggest challenges. The US currently produces over 250 million tons of MSW each year, almost 2/3 of which continues to be landfilled. Other forms of waste (wood waste, agricultural waste, industrial waste, and other solid waste) increases this quantity significantly. Worldwide, the total MSW number is 1.3 billion tons per year and projected to grow to 2.6 billion tons per year by 2025 (The Worldwatch Institute), and that number is projected to triple by 2100. The increased pressure to find alternative ways to deal with MSW will increase the catalytic forces propelling bioenergy projects forward, especially waste-to-energy projects.

  • About 33% of the over 250 million tons per year of MSW in the US is recycled.
  • 11% is converted to energy through old incinerators
  • Over 135 million tons per year are deposited into 1,700 existing landfills, leading to immense methane emissions exceeding 1 million tons of CO2 equivalent per month.
  • Many countries have governmental mandates that support our MSW to Bio-Fuel initiatives.
    - EU and Brazil have landfill elimination plans
    - EU, Mexico, Brazil, India, Australia & New Zealand are creating renewable energy plans
  • The potential market is over 1,000 projects in the US, just using MSW.
  • The worldwide opportunity is almost 20 times that amount (20,000 potential projects just using MSW).

Self Sustaining Total Recycling Facility


MSW to Energy hydrogen can be sold or distributed at pumps, for H2 Vehicles, just like traditional gas stations. The hydrogen from the Bio-Reformers is stored in hydrogen tanks which can then be used for any applicaiton. Energy rich waste is funneled from the solution tanks into the Base Facilitated Reformers(BFR). These machines convert the waste, methane and other chemicals into usable clean hydrogen. The Bio Seperation Vessel (BSV) agitates the waste causing lighter plastics to float to the top for removal, heavy metals to sink to the bottom, and usable waste materials to form in the mid part of the tanks. a Grinder once again breaks down the remaining waste into small pieces to dump into the solution tanks. The Cross-Belt Suspension Magnets pull out any small pieces of metal that are still in the waste during the Picking Conveyer stage. The Picking Conveyer is the only step that involves people. These workers pick out any parts that the automated processes might not be able to break down, or that need to special sorting. The Eddy Current Separator is an advanced metal sorting unit that is capable of separating non-ferrous metals from iron or plastics. Lighter materiels from the BSV art put into the Bio Carbon Fuels Process to be dried and converted to feedstock then converted into Syngas and electricity. A shredded grinds up all of the waste into smaller pieces and ejects it onto an Eddy Current Separator. An Inclined feed conveyer carrys the trash up to dump into a shredder. Garbage Trucks deliver unsorted waste to the H2 facility, dumping it on an inclining floor.

Eco Energy International (EEI) seeks to reduce landfill use while maximizing recycling and producing clean energy. EEI's bio reformation technology extracts clean, usable Hydrogen (H2) from the organic materials in Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) while capturing their carbon content. The left over materials are then to re-engineered fuel to be the feedstock of gasifiers, creating Syngas suitable for generation of electricity or the produciton of additional H2. The result: instead of sending waste material to a landfill, we utilize all the materials to produce both H2 and electricity. Remaining materials are recycled and water used in this process can be reclaimed for reuse.

Solutions for Clean Energy from MSW


Bio Seperation Vessel (BSV)
* Patent Pending


Ground up MSW is delivered into vessel containing acaustic solution (i.e. Caustic Soda, Caustic Potash, or Slaked Lime).

A large stirring mechanism helps dissolve the organic or bio-materials (i.e. paper, cardboard, wood, food waste,non-synthetic fibers/fabrics, grass clippings, etc.) into the caustic solution.

To speed up the MSW processing, waste heat recovered from the downstream process is applied.
Materials are removed:
BSV concept

  • Lighter materials from the top of the vessel are sent to BCF
  • Wet caustic solution in the center of the tank is sent to BFR
  • Metals at the bottom of the tank are sent to recycle

Bio Carbon Fuels (BCF)
Feedstock Preparation
* Patented


The technology process is divided into three main stages:

  • Incoming Feedstock loaded into proprietary feedstock preparation machine, which mixes,dries, shreds and compresses the waste into solid fuel (briquettes, pellets or granules). 
  • The Feedstock is then fed into a pyrolysis reactor forzero emission thermal conversion of the prepared Feedstock into synthesis gas (“Syngas”)
  • The resulting Syngas is then fed into a generator set to produce renewable electricity or liquefied and refined into biofuels.
  • BCF

Biase Facilitated Reformer (BFR)
* 20 Patents


ETI's MSW for H2 Generation!

The solution from the BSV becomes the feedstock to the patented BFR process.

This system is a low cost direct conversion of MSW into pure hydrogen (H2) without producing greenhouse gas emissions (no CO and CO2)

The H2 produced through this process is stored in vessels and delivered to existing H2 customers at below current market price.

The BFR system can utilize additional feedstocks including biomass, biogas, landfill gas, methanol, ethanol and sugars.
