Before you think I’ve gone mad and started featuring pictures of Semis, keep reading because I think this will pique your interest. IST Energy, a company based out of Waltham, MA (right next to my hometown) has invented a machine that can turn every day waste (except glass and metal) into reusable energy. The Green Energy Machine uses a process called gasification, which convert about 95% of waste – up to 3 tons a day – into reusable energy. Based on 3 tons of banana peels and paper, the Green Energy Machine can provide enough ‘heat and electricity’ for a 200,000 square foot building containing up to 500 people a day. Sick!
The Green Energy Machines costs about $850,000, which the company calculates will be recouped in 3 to 4 years by not paying for trash removal and power off the grid.
Now they just need Jack Lalanne to endorse the friggin’ thing with is God awful bushy eye brows.
