North Palm Springs, CA, United States, 2009/08/16 - Aquentium, Inc. (AQNM) is pleased to announce that the company expects to open an office in Seoul South Korea within the next 30 days for the development of waste-to-energy plants throughout the country. OTC: AQNM
Aquentium, Inc. a publicly traded company (AQNM) announced today that the company expects to open an office in Seoul South Korea within the next 30 days. The office in Seoul South Korea will be used for the development of waste-to-energy plants throughout the country.
Aquentium has already begun its feasibility study for implementation of a waste-to-energy plant in the country of South Korea. The study is based on building a 1,000 metric ton per day waste to energy processing plant.
"Our Waste Elimination Energy Factory (WEEF) will be an environmentally friendly green technology program that will eliminate garbage and eliminate landfill dumps while producing valuable by-products, such as, electricity for thousands of homes all from disposing of municipal solid waste," stated Aquentium Vice-President of Waste-To-Energy Operations, Richard Stone.
One of the most serious issues facing urbanized areas today is development of cost-effective environmentally acceptable disposal of a community's solid waste. Aquentium is focused on binging new ways to recycle waste by generating electricity from landfill waste and pollution for the Country of South Korea. While there is an obvious need to minimize the generation of wastes and to reuse and recycle them, the technologies for recovery of energy from wastes can play a vital role in mitigating the problems. Besides recovery of substantial energy, these technologies can lead to a substantial reduction in the overall waste quantities requiring final disposal, which can be better managed for safe disposal in a controlled manner while meeting the pollution control standards.
Solid waste management is a major issue worldwide, because of increasing concerns with environmental problems. One potential solution is to use municipal solid waste, which, for all practical purposes is a renewable commodity, for the generation of electricity. Analysis shows that incineration of municipal waste, even after 30% of the waste was recycled, could provide as much electric power as eight large nuclear or coal generating stations.
Aquentium (aquentium.com) is a diversified company with an emphasis on green technologies. The company currently has interests in non-chemical sanitation equipment, waste-to-energy technologies, water treatment, food safety, mining, alternative energy, building materials, affordable housing, re-deployable housing, and recycling.
