GCC are proud to present an environmental waste project that’s both practical and purposeful. This project has been built on a passion for modern day resource continuity and sustainability. It’s called the ‘Green Box Power’ (otherwise known as GBP), and it employs modern renewability technology that is turning everyday waste, into intelligent and sustainable fuel sources.
What Does a Green Box Power Look Like?
The Green Box Power is essentially a smart green box shed design, build to host all associated energy renewability materials and associated machinery. The theme, is green. And all GBPs are instantly recognisable, thanks to their green-themed visuals throughout.
What Does It Do?
Every time that a new GBP is rolled-out, another site can enjoy all the environmental and sustainability benefits that it has been built for. We believe that smart design has the capability to turn typically unusable waste into unsourced taps of potential in the form of power.
How Does It Work?
It works thanks to REWS (Renewable Energy Waste Solutions) modern waste application technology. Essentially, REWS configuration employs charcoal manufacturing capabilities to processing waste for purpose – but with a refined twist. The modified techniques are suitable for waste traffic, enabling optimal conditions for waste to energy conversion. With the strategic application of heat and removal of oxygen, all without the use of electricity or gas. The two main variables of waste to energy application are what’s known as Pyrolysis (high temp) and Torrefaction (low temp). Both have the capability to convert residual materials into 100% employable energy sources.
TECHNOLOGY Utilising Renewable Energy Waste Solutions (REWS) technology, Green Box Power employs the very same smart design, low maintenance, safe, sustainable science to each and every delivered GBP. All waste collected onsite is able to be intelligently diverted via the GBP for zero-pressure level conversion. Each GBP is almost 100% self-sufficient in energy, and fuelled thanks to its own feedstock. It’s quiet, produces no by-products and requires disposals. The GBP has a small footprint with cleaner emissions than those produced by natural gas.
ZERO WASTE In the United Kingdom, zero waste means tackling tonnes of landfill and rubbish in a way that provides value, with vision for the future. It’s about creating a circular economy that emulates mother nature, using each and every waste source to further fuel energy in a smart and sustainable manner. Resource usage of the past meant extraction of earths natural resources, with a discard and no plan for the future. Today, it means consideration of consequences over time, and the development of meaningful mechanisms to make once useless waste, 100% useful.
ROLL OUT PLAN
Currently, the GCC Team is in discussions with REWS to deliver a fixed count of our Green Box Power plants domestically and globally.
THE GREAT WASTE PROBLEM
The United Kingdom is quickly running out of landfill. In July of 2018, The Guardian reported that recycling rates have slowed to 44%, and with that figure factored, the UK is unlikely to reach it’s goal of 50% recycling by 2020. Further, Britain is currently ill-equipped to handle its domestic plastic waste load, with plastic rubbish currently being exported overseas. Oversights such as these lend to an increasingly challenge context for tackling waste issues domestically. Hence why initiatives and projects such as Green Box Power are absolutely vital to meeting targets and contributing to a more sustainable long-term view.
Internationally, seepage remains a huge occupational health and safety hazard. Ground water contamination proliferates disease and poses innumerable threats to public wellbeing. The issue of rubber tyre disposal is still being tackled and municipal solid waste continues to contribute to the highest landfill rates the world has ever seen.
Technology presents a clean, smart solution to these growing global and domestic problems.
