Compo Energy Inc.
In the United States, over 250 million tons of waste is generated annually, and in Canada it's the same ratio of waste to population which is approximately 1,700 pounds annually per person. There are over 2,300 landfills in United States and waste disposal business generates fifty two billion dollars annually. The industry experts call waste/garbage "A 21st Century Goldmine". In the past few years recycling has reduced the percentage of waste being disposed and transported to our landfills, but as population grows so does the volume of waste and the complications of its disposal. Our need to locate future sites to dump waste is becoming more challenging. Our city landfills are getting full, and the new sites are further away from the cities which require more energy and time to transport the waste to the landfills. The task of locating new sites for waste disposal is also getting more difficult as the population increases and the limits of our cities are continuously growing.
COMPO ENERGY INC. is a U.S. and Canadian Patented environmentally friendly waste to energy solution created to utilize the millions of tons of waste generated daily in the United States and Canada to create electrical energy and compost for agricultural use. One of the goals of this operation is to reduce waste to its minimum by creating clean, renewable source of energy. Each plant generating electricity and its by products will benefit all parties involved. Our communities will benefit by creating new employment opportunities, generate revenue by providing waste disposal facility, substantially reduce waste transferred to our landfills, create income from the sale of the compost, and generate revenue from much needed clean electrical energy and more.

Each plant will be able to supply electrical energy for hundred of thousands of homes or could be in millions depending on the location, the size of the plant, the design and the engineering specifications. Our plants will require covered structure, and a controlled environment. The patented design of the plants operation will be suitable in variety of climates from the colder parts of the region to warmer areas. The extremely large areas of the roof surface which could be in excess of hundred of thousands of square feet can be utilized for solar panels. With the combination of patented technology to create energy from waste and electricity generated by the solar panels the overall electrical output of the plant is equivalent to large scale power generating plant. Ultimately at the end of the process majority of the waste from the plant will be transformed into compost a type of soil mix vital for agricultural use.
The future demand for renewable energy is excellent. With population increases and the addition
of electric vehicles and high speed trains, the demand for electricity will increase substantially
Heat energy released by compostable matter is converted into electricity through the use of a compost updraft tower. A compost updraft tower comprises a collector region that contains compostable matter, one or more towers that rise up through the collector region, and one or more turbines. The air within the collector region is heated by the energy released during the composting process, and the heated air flows through the collector region toward the open first end of one or more of the towers. The heated air then rises up through one more of the towers to the open second end of the tower. The heated air flowing through the system drives turbines that generate electricity. In one embodiment, the roof of the collector region is transparent to allow solar radiation to penetrate the collector region and heat air within, NO INCINERATORS.
Wherever feasible we can create an open green space around the facility for trees and plants to grow. Mixing compost as soil enhancement will help the growth of the vegetation. These green areas will slowly become a source of wild life habitats. Students and teachers can create projects in the green areas for research and ecology. The public will have the opportunity to tour our plants and have picnics and guided tours so that they can learn and enjoy the variety of interesting projects that benefit our eco system.
After electricity is generated in our plants, there will be numerous opportunities to expand the benefits to our communities. If the plant is near the ocean, a portion of the electricity can be used to operate a desalination plant. This fresh water could also be used to irrigate plants and vegetation such as sugar cane suitable for processing biofuels, a commonly used fuel alternative to power our motor vehicles.
The scarcity of fresh water resources and the need for additional water supplies is already critical in many arid regions of the world and will be increasingly important in the future. Many arid areas simply do not have fresh water resources in the form of surface water and have only limited underground water resources that are becoming more brackish. The availability of renewable energy makes it possible to couple desalination plants with renewable energy production processes in order to ensure the production of water in a sustainable and environmentally friendly scheme. It is particularly suitable for remote areas and islands because of the high costs of fossil fuels, difficulties in obtaining it, attempts to conserve fossil fuels, interest in reducing air pollution, and the lack of electrical power.
Among industrialized countries, the United States is one of the most important users of desalinated water (6.5%), especially in California and parts of Florida.
The interest for Compo Energy is expected to be throughout the United States, Canada and other countries. But three immediate focal points should be the Los Angeles County Sanitation District’s Mesquite Regional Land Fill, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Tehachapi Pine Tree Wind Power Plant, and Hawaii’s trash and energy programs.
Waste-by-Rail landfills project involves rail transport which requires that new infrastructure be developed. Mesquite Regional Landfill (MRL) is located in Imperial County and Eagle Mountain Landfill (EML) is located in Riverside County.

Both landfill sites involve rail transport to dispose refuse and are located two hundred miles east of Los Angeles along the Union Pacific Railroad. MRL is located on 4,250 acres and EML is located on 4,643 acres.
Los Angeles Department of Water and Power began full operation of the Pine Tree wind Power Plant — a wind farm owned by the municipal utility in the Tehachapi Mountains. It has 80,000 acres of land and a vast pipe network for renewable energy projects.
Gigantic piles of shrink-wrapped garbage have been moldering in the heat of a Hawaii industrial park for more than five months, waiting for a place to be shipped. That wait appeared to end Monday when city officials inked a deal to dispose of the 40 million-pound pile of odious rubbish over the next six months by mostly burning it in an existing waste-to-power plant.

But bigger problems remain for Honolulu as the state's largest city struggles to find a home for all its waste. With its lone dump filling up fast, officials had been counting on a plan to ship at least 100,000 tons of blue, plastic-wrapped garbage bales each year to a landfill near an Indian reservation in Washington state. But the tribe vehemently objected and won a court ruling last week that put the plan on hold indefinitely. Acting Honolulu mayor, Kirk Caldwell, acknowledged as much Monday. "The city bent over backwards to try to make this shipping effort work, but is clear that shipping is not a viable option at this time," he said in a statement.
