Company honored as “Best Biofuels and Biochemicals Solution” in Clean Tech Category
PASO ROBLES, CA – December 17, 2014 – Greenbelt Resources Corporation (OTC: GRCO), a provider of sustainable energy production systems, announced today that its modular small-scale organic waste recycling technology has been named the “Best Biofuels and Biochemicals Solutions” by The New Economy magazine in its annual 2014 Clean Tech Awards. This accolade recognizes Greenbelt Resources’ contribution to global sustainable development and its unique approach to converting food-based waste into consumable products and renewable energy. The award will be presented at the London Stock Exchange in March of 2015.
Greenbelt Resources’ automated modular systems turn locally available feedstocks (typically food waste or locally grown biofuel crops) into the four F’s: fuel, fertilizer, animal feed and filtered water. Greenbelt Resources’ small scale systems, can be more energy efficient than traditional large-scale plants due to its patent-pending energy saving membrane-based dehydration module. Where deployed, these systems reduce waste outflow, reduce transport of the F’s, minimize environmental impact, produce overall cost savings and foster local job retention.
“Our unique modular local-scale technology turns industry assumptions upside-down and proves the practicality of cost-effective local resource utilization,” says Floyd Butterfield, chief technology officer of Greenbelt Resources. “Recognition by The New Economy proves that global business leaders share our vision of a distributed energy source future.”
This award honors the forward thinking of Greenbelt Resources to produce biofuel and sustainable energy from cost-effective local resources. The impact goes beyond today’s current application in the developed world of simply recycling food and beverage wastes. This award also recognizes the intent of Greenbelt Resources’ solutions to solve localized needs in emerging regions like Africa. With its global focus and international readership, The New Economy and its judging panel of business journalists, corporate leadership and academia, based its award decision on a wide range of criteria including R&D, strategy, leadership, diversity, sustainability and a range of desirable qualities most notably selecting firms that redefine what it means to do business.
“We envision future off-grid installations to be capable of converting locally grown crops into fuel for both transportation and home appliances, fertilizer, animal feed, distilled water, heat, electricity, and connectivity,” emphasizes Darren Eng, CEO of Greenbelt Resources. “For example, a community in Africa could utilize the system to convert local feedstock into fuel for vehicles and heating stoves, distribute excess electricity to a local grid providing children light at night for their studies, and provide families with clean drinking water,”
Greenbelt Resources recently shipped its technology to Australia, a region ripe with wheat waste. Today, the customer is converting this ag “trash” into fuel for their irrigation pumps, representing a significant cost savings. The technology can be modified for other applications.
