MicroGrids – The Surprising Electric Gate to Clean Energy

It is all very well and good for me to publish a post about:

How To Get More Electricity For Your Community
BUT what if you can’t hook it up to your Utility Grid?

MicroGrids will upgrate the Big Grids

Renewables lead to Electricity.
The Gate to use this Clean Energy is the “Electricity Power Grid“.
BUT it needs a big infrastructure facelift / upgrade.
The whole world of electric grids are old or do not exist!
How do we fix this?

How to get More Electricity for your community – worldwide

You are sitting next to it!

Clean up the Climate and make Electricity!
Solve 2 problems with 1 action!


Every community worldwide has a pile of Solid Waste.

Within a year that Waste pile will start to make Gas/Methane.

What is your community going to do about the Methane?

>> Capture the Methane from your Garbage Dump. Get More Electricity.

SMALL Landfills – Capture the Methane And Make Energy, too.

How much Municipal Solid Waste is considered the size of
SMALL Landfills / Garbage Dumps?

It used to be I million – 3 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste-in-place.



https://www.epa.gov/sites/default/files/2017-06/documents/overview_lmop_lfg_us.pdf
slide 5 of the presentation

Now-a-days there appears to be no limit to the size of a “Landfill project to produce energy” as long as the people who own it can find
1. an end user for the gas or electricity
2. Funding for the project.

The Landfills/Garbage Dumps discussed in this post range from 360,000 tons to 2.8 million tons of waste-in-place.

CH4 Investments >>Urgent! >>Today! ——– Landfill Gas (LFG)

One of the quickest ways to reduce Methane in our skies is with such CH4 Investments.

CH4 is Methane!
Methane is half of the GHG in Landfill Gas (RNG).
Saving the planet, at least 1 Landfill a day, every day!

We take the Value from Waste and the Climate Cleans Up!

America! Clean Cool Air!! – Back To The Year 1800!!!

A Review: Ezra Klein interviews a Climate Clean-up Expert

America!!! Make it happen in the USofA!
The $370 billion Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) offers oodles of money to get back to Cool Clean Air for YOUR everyday life including tax credits, discounts, and rebates.

BUT, what is the big picture, which of these benefits should YOU use? What will the future bring? Things have already changed, Technology is improving things all the time!

If you have the time and like podcasts….Ezra Klein had a discussion with a climate expert about where we are with the big picture. ….. HOWEVER, I have some comments to make about what has changed since they talked in September.

Critical Minerals & Rare Elements! ….. COLOSSAL WASTE RUSH

WOW! …the Critical Minerals & Rare Elements industry is already beginning to replace earth mines with “Urban Mining”.
See how fast “Industry” works to solve their own problems!?!
It has only been a few years!

Look here what recyclers have to work with!
This Year

The point herein is that every country, worldwide, needs their own Urban Mining = e-waste recycling. Below are examples of who is doing it and where your country can get help setting up your own operations.

In an earlier post, that says more about the reasons for this new WasteRush, here.

Circular Mining
The Demand
The Suppliers – Technology
Rare earth elements await in Coal Mining Waste
The Suppliers – Collection+

Mycelium in Industry – Where to find out in the World?

Update….see course in September 2023!

In this post:

the above photo: Haeckels – For outer packaging of our glass containers in both retail and during transit, mushroom derived mycelium was adopted.  An incredibly versatile, all-natural & 100% bio-degradable material that is mouldable to any silhouette and not only houses seeds of wild flora in its rigid walls, but fertilises them when the outer packaging is discarded after use; a more eco-conscious unboxing experience.
