We believe these projects will create over 20 green jobs within Dorchester County by 2012.
Cambridge, MD (PRWEB) March 17, 2010
Cambridge Environmental Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cambridge International, today announced its formal alliance with rem Engineering to manufacture and market the Ecoremedy™ gasification system. The strategic relationship brings together two technological leaders in their fields; rem Engineering specializes in cogeneration and renewable power generation while Cambridge Environmental Technologies brings their conveyorized material handling systems and conveyor belting expertise to the partnership. Together the companies believe the revolutionary system meets the energy generation needs of today’s organizations while creating jobs and economic stability in Dorchester County.
The Ecoremedy™ system is a patented technology that gasifies various forms of biomass turning the biomass into usable energy. The system has successfully gasified composted dairy manure, processing sludge, spoiled feed, molded corn, peanut hulls, rice hulls, sawdust, fescue hulls, poultry litter, and more. The proprietary design expands the range of viable feedstock thus ensuring project sustainability. Ecoremedy™ successfully gasifies highly variable moisture fuels with high ash and low energy content.
Issues abound with the disposal of poultry litter collected from poultry houses. This litter is typically spread on fields as a fertilizer which can seep into waterways causing contamination. On the Delmarva Peninsula alone, where Cambridge Environmental Technologies is located, over 700,000 tons of poultry manure are produced annually. An idea gaining favor within the poultry industry is to convert litter into energy. The Ecoremedy™ gasification process makes this a safe, technically feasible and economically viable option.
The gasification of poultry litter is difficult due to its varied moisture, high ash and low energy content which has prevented successful gasification system designs in the past. The Ecoremedy™ gasification system is a conveyorized gasification system that effectively gasifies poultry litter and other biomass. The conveyorized system addresses the issues with varied density and moisture content, enabling producers to achieve the uniform gasification of poultry litter. “Not only does Ecoremedy™ successfully and reliably generate usable energy from poultry litter and other byproduct materials like offal and sludge, but our system recovers the highly valuable nutrients for sale to the fertilizer industry” says Dave Mooney, Vice President of rem Engineering.
Together Cambridge Environmental Technologies and rem Engineering have introduced the Ecoremedy™ system to dozens of corporations and municipalities. “We are attempting to work closely with the state of Maryland and the University of Maryland to bring this revolutionary technology on-line,” says Tracy Tyler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Cambridge International. “There are multiple Ecoremedy™ system orders pending, and we believe these projects will create over 20 green jobs within Dorchester County by 2012.” Cambridge Environmental Technologies and rem Engineering are committed to this strategic alliance and looking forward to a future of successful growth and innovation.
