Mini Executive Summary - rGreen Landfill

  1. 1. Proud member of rGreen Consortium. WHAT IS rGREEN LANDFILL? As a lead member of rGreen Consortium, a designated B Corp., rGreen Landfill is a start-up engineering and solid waste consulting company. Our patented and approved technology, the “Aerobic Landfill Bioreactor System” (ALBS), quintuples landfill revenues by reusing the same airspace while eliminating greenhouse gases, such as methane. Added together, airspace recovery and carbon footprint reductions equate to billions of dollars in un-tapped revenues. rGreen Landfill provides quick and sturdy capital that will be used to complete funding and launch the rest of the businesses within the Consortium. rGreen Landfill receives approximately $5 Million on closed landfill sites on average, and over $20 Million on operating landfills on average.
  2. 2.  rGreen Consortium currently consists of 5 highly profitable, modeled companies tied together with a single steering committee, collectively sharing resources and thus empowering each other socially and financially for the greater good.  The foundational data derived from crowdsourcing is re-used across our tied industries for profound growth & expansion.  Our patented process, called the Aerobic Landfill Bioreactor System (ALBS), is recognized by USEPA, and has been certified by the United Nations (UN) CDM Methodology Number AM0083. AEROBIC LANDFILL BIOREACTOR SYSTEM (ALBS) ENDLESS – SUSTAINABLE – REGENERATIVE  Note: All Commercial Class 2 operating landfills on our planet have now become completely obsolete. Our system eliminates post-closure monitoring costs, capping costs, and quickly eliminates brownfields. Millions in profits year 1 with each landfill — Funding is used to fund rGreen Consortium! rGreen Landfill profoundly bridges industry forward, pulls communities together, and leads to providing a fully-funded higher education for all children within a community! rGreen Landfill and the business partners of rGreen Consortium are Evangelistic and all benefit each other!
  3. 3. rGreen Consortium has a 2 Phase approach to funding the consortium. In Phase 1, we will begin by targeting Landfills in Canada with our Sustainable Landfill solution to raise the startup capital needed for Phase 2, the completion of the rGreen Consortium. Alongside its constituents, rGreen Landfill holds multiple patents on a new environmental technology that changes the rules regarding all landfills - it allows all the space in existing landfills to be re-used, thereby freeing up future land and financial assets. Instead of building new landfills once they fill up and are closed, we avoid the post-closure cost of monitoring the landfill for 30-plus years, as well as the landfill capping expense of approximately $300,000 per acre, quickly saving each landfill $10s and $100s of millions of dollars in operational cost. We treat the waste that is in place over a 3- to 5-year period using the rGreen technology, and then pull out the remaining bulk of inert materials, such as glass, metals, and plastics, which are either recycled, reused, or sent to a less expensive construction and debris (C&D) landfill. With the cell now empty and reconditioned, the landfill is refilled with new waste and the rGreen technology reapplied, followed by subsequent mining events. This is repeated for multiple decades. The rGreen technology not only reduces all the environmental hazards at the landfill, but reduces landfill methane, a Greenhouse gas that is 23 times more harmful than CO2 in the atmosphere. Such reductions can be monetized into millions of dollars’ worth of carbon credits depending on the amount of methane “avoided.” The Aerobic Landfill Bioreactor System doubles & quintuples landfill revenues, which equates to billions of dollars in un-tapped revenues for today’s average operating landfill. The rGreen technology can be applied at any Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfill in the world where acreage is at a premium, where landfill costs are high, or where sustainable waste management is desired. The technology is not only recognized by the US EPA and in five states, but is registered and approved by the United Nations as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Our emissions reduction methodology generates Certified Emission Reduction units (CERs), which may be traded in emissions trading schemes.Our CDM is qualified as a sustainable development that contributes to the ultimate objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which is to prevent dangerous climate change. We help to achieve compliance with their quantified emission limitation and
  4. 4. reduction commitments of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Once rGreen Consortium is launched we will also focus on Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfills within the U.S.A. as well as the additional remaining landfills in Alberta Canada. Comparative Summary of ALBS Landfill to Status Quo Landfill Description Status Quo ALBS Notes Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions Average landfill waste emit approximately 432,000 cubic feet of LFG per day. 1 Of that amount, 45-50% is methane by volume >90% reduction in less than 3 months The air that is injected contains oxygen, which is toxic to methane producing bacteria; therefore, methane production is avoided. Foul Odors Hydrogen Sulfide, Ammonia, Mercaptans Compost, earthy aroma Similar to wastewater treatment process at publically-owned treatment plants (POTWs) Leachate (Liquids) Production Can produce up to 1,000 gallons per day at some sites 100% elimination Due to higher waste operating temperatures (165 degrees F) Leachate Toxins Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Has reduced BOD from 10,000 ppm to less than 100 ppm Similar to wastewater treatment process at POTWs Waste/ Leachate Pathogens Consistently present in waste and leachate Mortality in less than 24 hours Due to higher waste operating temperatures (165 degrees F) Waste degradation timeframe/ Site Redevelopment Potential Decades, if not 100 years or more, due to slow anaerobic decay Less than 5 years, due to faster aerobic decay Old landfills can be developed for real estate purposes much faster than Opportunity for Landfill Mining (LFM)? No, due to presence of pathogens and methane Yes, due to significant reduction of pathogens and methane via the ALBS Over 20 LFM projects have been conducted to date globally Opportunity to recycle landfill materials? No, as waste is buried Yes, due to LFM and reduction of pathogens and methane Recovered materials (glass, metals, etc.) can be combined into ongoing recycling programs to help meet recycling mandates. Post Closure Care (PCC)/ PCC Costs 30 Years or more, by mandate Reduced or Eliminated Completely (100%) Due to reduced BOD, VOCs, pathogens, and GHG via ALBS. Such data provides the basis to request relief from prescriptive PCC 1
  5. 5. mandates. Opportunity to Monetize GHG emissions Yes. Yes, at a higher spot price Alberta price for GHG offsets are above $20 per ton CO2Eq Opportunity to Reuse Landfill airspace/extend landfill life? No. Once the landfill fills, it must be expanded or closed, then PPC begins Yes, due to ALBS and LFM, the landfill waste can be removed, recycled, and the airspace refilled to repeat the process. Known as The Sustainable Landfill Assumptions: Landfill Acreage: • 33 acres Landfill Volume: • 1,000,000 tons Amount of GHG emission reduction over project (3-5 years) • 1,200,000 tons carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2EQ) • Instead of 50 - 100 years or more to use the property again it is now 3-5 years. • No foul odors. • Methane Gas is 23 times more powerful than CO2 going into our atmosphere. 90-95% is eliminated. • Landfills produce Bio- Hazardous wastewater and we eliminate 100%. • After a landfill is full and closed it must be tested for ground water contamination for 30 years. This is eliminated. Millions Saved. • After a landfill is closed it is required to be capped at a cost of $300,000.00 - $350,000.00 per acre. This is eliminated. Millions saved. Together with the rGreen Consortium, the possibilities are endless. We create a path for real
