Waste Refinement, LLC Announces New Alternative Technology to Process Waste Materials

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Waste Refinement, LLC, today announced that it is bringing to market a new, environmentally friendly alternative to the management of waste -- a proven, green technology that will transform the way communities process their waste.

Who would have thought, even five years ago, that the garbage man would be the one to bring about the next transformational innovation. Waste Refinement has developed an Integrated Green Energy Park. The park will result in consumer waste separation, commodities and fuel generation, land reclamation, new revenue streams, job creation, economic revitalization, and an environmentally sustainable waste-to-energy multi-output facility.

Waste Refinement has a proven industrial technology that transforms the business of waste management into waste refinement, where the raw materials are the wastes our society deems useless and tosses away by the ton. We will "mine" this raw material, right from cities, landfills, states, regions, islands, and countries. In fact, our sources bring our raw materials right to our front door. In the future, we'll even pay for garbage that we can turn into revenue.

The output is broad and deep: Our waste refinery plants, of scalable size, use a proven and simple pyrolysis process to take nearly any form of garbage, trash or waste and turn it into energy in the form of synthetic, clean burning coal, desirable off gases, and oils. All this, while eliminating any existing landfill, completely eliminating the need for new landfills, and helping to manage the world's trash issues, running on the energy it creates.


  • The Waste Refinement Integrated Green Energy Park is scalable and can be used at existing landfills, retrofit waste-to-energy plants, and incinerators. It can even be made mobile.
  • The technology of pyrolysis has existed for years and has been proven an effective technology for various industries. Waste Refinement, LLC is applying this technology for waste to energy use.
  • Our Waste Refinement paradigm is designed to lower many of the current waste handling costs, create new revenue streams and revitalize a diminishing industry.


  • The Waste Refinement plant processes garbage, waste and trash.
  • No need to travel great distances to increasingly fewer landfills.
  • No need to even have a landfill or the associated costs with a landfill.
  • You can even reclaim 100% of any existing landfill by building our plant right next door.


  • 100% separation means less waste and more energy to sell.
  • 100% Glass, Plastic and Metal recycling.
  • Significantly reduces the amount of un-recycled materials that currently end up in landfills, generating a greater set of recyclable commodities for resale.

Large scale pyrolysis

  • Efficient and sustainable process to generate energy and sequester carbon.
  • High pressure, low heat (as compared to incineration) and low oxygen.
  • This process equipment exists on an industrial scale.
  • Organic material is refined into usable fuels and eventually carbon for the manufacture of other products.

Green results that are better for the environment

  • Waste to usable products and fuels anywhere in the world.
  • Energy efficient... the plant fuels itself.
  • Steam output to generate electricity and other commercial use.
  • Smaller footprint than landfills or incinerators.
  • Releases less greenhouse gasses than landfills, incinerators and power plants.
  • Will process anything organic and recycle what is not.

The human trash problem

  • The world is literally drowning in its own trash and the matter is only getting worse.
  • The U.S. alone generates over 210 million tons of waste annually.
  • The EPA says there are 3,000 active landfills in the U.S. and over 10,000 inactive ones.
  • China's and India's trash problems will escalate out of control within 10 years.
  • Europe and the Islands have such limited space that waste management fees are 20 times what they are in the continental U.S.

Commodities Generation

  • Through advanced separation technologies nearly 100% recycling is achieved.
  • Currently $600 million worth of aluminum alone is not recycled annually and stays in landfills.
  • Plastic, glass and metal become available for sale on the commodities market.
  • Off gases of methane and hydrogen become available.
  • Oils for fuel and industrial use become available for sale or use.
  • Biochar can be burned as a fuel, used to sequester carbon, or as an ingredient in other industrial manufacturing processes.
  • The plant accommodates various "bolt-on" processes for additional uses.

Waste Refinement, LLC's background is in the energy, waste-to-energy, recycling and manufacturing businesses. Waste Refinement, LLC is a leading innovator and builder of green solutions for recycling, management of waste and commodities generation that result in waste to usable products and fuels anywhere in the world.
