Clean the Globe, an Orlando-based social enterprise dedicated to collecting, recycling and distributing hotel soap to battle preventable diseases and protect our planet, is teaming with a high-technology incubator to fuel a series of socially responsible innovations and sustainable energy projects in the hospitality sector and beyond.
Looking to expand its recycling and upcycling opportunities worldwide, Clean the Globe has formed a joint venture with Eco Convergence Group Inc. (ECG), an Orlando-based engineering and technology development firm focusing on the sustainability industry. The partners are creating many forward-thinking initiatives which includes advanced mobile waste processors, geopolymer ?green? construction materials, hydroponic vertical multi-layer food production and technology for simultaneous removal of Nano-particles and gaseous pollutants.
Objectives of the Clean the Globe-ECG joint venture contain limiting the global spread of disease through much better hygiene, creating more price-efficient construction supplies, delivering healthier, more sustainable food sources, and decreasing waste and contamination in landfills and drinking water.
Some projects in the works incorporate:
Mobile Waste Processors (MWPs) that will work with hotels and restaurants to provide on-web site processing of grease, liquid sludge, and organic waste goods into power and/or biofuels without having generating any emissions.
?Green? construction materials made with geopolymer activators to improve upon and replace ordinary Portland cement and concrete. The materials will have the potential to minimize the CO2 footprint by 80%, whilst deploying far more price-successful and superior construction supplies for industrial use.
Generating and storing clean energy (waste, hydro/wind, solar/thermal, etc.) using power towers, water displacement and vertical transport technology.
Algae farms-to-Aquacultures-to-Hydroponic closed loop systems targeting indoor vertical growth of organic food goods in areas where landscape and atmosphere might hamper wholesome farming efforts. Combined with the joint venture?s own ?green? construction styles and various approaches of producing clean power, the models are adaptable to any temperature zone, even though becoming totally sustainable from an power point of view.
ECG?s Mobile Processing Systems will be deployed initial in North America at two Clean the World recycling operations facilities in the United States ? Orlando and Las Vegas. Soon thereafter, plans are to add comparable systems at Clean the World?s Canadian facilities in Vancouver and Toronto. The four facilities will be outfitted with fixed processing equipment for the recycling of soap, plastics and aluminum collected from the hospitality business. In addition the facilities will accommodate for the sequestration of CO2 emissions collected from the procedure with direct feed into algae farms.
?The opportunity exists to truly transform the way people assume about waste and energy production to increase the standard of living for communities all around the world,? says Shawn Seipler, CEO and co-founder at Clean the World. ?Our successful soap recycling effort within the hospitality market is opening doors to broader, bolder sustainable initiatives that hospitality and other industries might embrace to develop a cleaner, a lot more efficient and healthier environment.?
Mobile Waste Processors will be the very first and most visible project in the functions. The MWP units, roughly the size of little sanitation vehicles, will pull up to a hotel, take its organic waste and other recyclables and process it into gas and electricity.
Clean the World will leverage its global hospitality business partnerships in this joint venture with ECG, which in turn will capitalize on robust economic development connections in Europe and Asia to seek investment capital and satisfy global demand for sustainable solutions to solve the world?s energy and efficiency problems via innovative technologies.
ECG envisions broad adoption of the mobile waste processing, specifically in Europe, exactly where ECG has been receiving inquiries about this sort of project for some time.
?We?ve been developing this technology for a long time, but when we were introduced to Clean the Globe and witnessed the good results they were getting with hotel soap and bottled amenities recycling, we knew this would be a wonderful fit,? says Robert Ramsey, CEO and founder of ECG. ?Technology doesn?t wait for chance, but when an opportunity presents itself, technologies and superior engineering have to be prepared to capitalize. That?s what this joint venture is all about.?
Clean the World is the largest global recycler of hotel amenities with a lot more than 1,200 hospitality partners all through North America, which includes Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Carlson Hotels, Caesars Entertainment, and The Walt Disney Globe Resorts. In much less than 3 years of operation Clean the Globe has distributed more than 9.five million bars of soap to young children and families in the United States, Canada and much more than 45 countries worldwide, although also fulfilling a useful environmental mission by diverting an estimated 600 tons of hotel waste from polluting landfills in the United States and Canada.
