We have designed Carbotura Zero-Fill services to be rapidly deployed in a modular fashion, so that our clients can enjoy immediate 100% recycling, 100% diversion, Zero-Emissions, and zero-waste. We understand that this may accelerate a lot of the current planning, and affect current programs and sunk costs, this is why we provide an easy transition approach to start by handling anything targeted at landfills, contaminated recycling, incinerator ash, and other items going to landfills. Our mission is to eliminate landfills.
  • What are the Site Requirements for a Zero-Fill Facility?
    The deployment requires minimal infrastructure with no unique or high demand resources, infrastructure, or support needs. A typical “entry level” facility can process up to 500 tons per day requires approximately 30,000 square feet of floor space with 35 feet of overhead clearance. Additional space may be required for intake of waste material streams as well as ISO containers and Tanktainers for material outputs. And storage for incoming MSW, and outgoing materials. The system is self-powered from the renewable fuels processed. It would be preferable to be co-located at the existing landfill for the ability to simultaneously address legacy waste. It could also be located at transfer stations to divert waste without the need for expensive material sorting or transport. Additionally, it could serve as a materials recovery facility within any existing processing facility, thereby dramatically reducing CAPEX and OPEX for that initiative. Our preferred handling method is shredded MSW baled, wrapped, serialized, and loaded on a flat pack container. We process whole bales at a time which keeps everything very clean and tidy.
  • Is the Zero-Fill service market-ready for deployment today?
    This is not a monolithic plant/facility development, it is a deployment of rapid response equipment that once manufactured can be assembled on site and operational within 30 days. We avoid the large project pitfalls and delays. In addition to funding 100% of the cost, Carbotura can address staffing, recruitment, partnering with local service providers on shipping, and transportation, hauling, and tipping efficiently as needed.
  • What are the manufactured outputs for offtake?
    Outputs from Carbotura Zero-Fill are as follows: Renewable Fuels Conversion of waste to renewable fuels allows our systems to be self-powered, and depending on configuration they can generate excess fuels or power. Renewable Char Our modules create a non-toxic char that can be utilized for downstream refining into high value materials (below). Additionally, using char as a soil amendment can replenish lost carbon stocks in degraded lands, beneficially recycling the carbon by-product of a regional industry, and improving soil quality. It can be used as an additive in asphalt, mortar, and concrete, to lower its inherent carbon footprint and enhance both durability and sustainability. Renewable Activated Carbon A material used globally can be derived from the char from waste. Activated carbon is used to purify liquids and gases in various applications, including municipal drinking water, food and beverage processing, odor removal, industrial pollution control. Renewable Graphite Graphite is a highly valued industrial commodity. It is used pencils, lubricants, crucibles, foundry facings, polishes, arc lamps, batteries, brushes for electric motors, and cores of nuclear reactors. It is a critical mineral to US supply chains as defined by the Dept of Energy. There is currently no graphite production in the US and over 80% of the market is controlled by China and the second largest reserves in Turkey. Renewable Graphene A nanomaterial that is used in supercapacitors, semiconductors, solar panels, coatings, concrete, foams, and gels. Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb-like pattern. Graphene is considered the world's thinnest, strongest, and most conductive material of electricity and heat. Graphene has the potential to revolutionize entire industries - in the fields of electricity, conductivity, energy generation, batteries, sensors, 3D Printing and more. Other Outputs include distilled water, Silica, and entrained recycled metals.
  • Can Carbotura Zero-Fill Services be scaled to handle larger waste volumes?
    Yes, the services are scalable to handle large waste volumes, with the capacity to handle up to 10,000TPD in one location. Since they are modular machines, capacity changes can happen quickly.
  • What are the short and long term benefits and impacts of your solution and services?
    Our processes are zero-waste, negative emissions, and carbon capture systems. Additionally, Carbotura Zero-Fill becomes a containerized virtual endless landfill in just a fraction of the space, improving overall land-use management and air quality for the city and local region. Renewable Energy is a key feature of a Carbotura facility. After initial startup power, each facility is 100% powered by self-generated renewable fuels. It can provide additional renewable energy or fuels to support the local micro-grid if desired. These facilities produce clean water and reintroduce critical raw materials to local and global supply chains in various industries from automotive and industrial to agricultural. This results in a more resilient community with lower overall emissions and environmental impacts. When co-located with landfills, we can uncap and process legacy waste, remediating the long-term environmental liabilities and improving land-use management and air quality. We can also process the leachate from the existing landfill and eliminate PFAS chemicals. PFAS are forever chemicals found in cleaning products, water-resistant fabrics, such as rain jackets, umbrellas and tents, Grease-resistant paper, Nonstick cookware, personal care products, like shampoo, dental floss, nail polish, and eye makeup, Stain-resistant coatings used on carpets, upholstery, and other fabrics. These “forever” chemicals have been finding their way into the environment around the world including rainwater and are a major concern expressed by the EPA and the CDC. Current and traditional waste management options do not address the remediation of PFAS. A recent review from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) outlines a host of health effects associated with PFAS exposure, including cancer, liver damage, decreased fertility, and increased risk of asthma and thyroid disease. We provide 100% of the funding, lowering the cost to the community while having the capacity to make the community zero waste with 100% diversion within 3 years. The Carbotura SDG Assessment was 96.8% across all the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) with the average benchmark in the U.S. below 40%, making this solution the pinnacle of regenerative infrastructure, producing the critical raw materials for the next stage of modern civilization.
