Biosphere technology is the newest addition to the sustainability industry's arsenal of waste-to-energy technologies. The sustainability industry advocates the generation and use of energy in such a way that the resources are utilized efficiently enough that coming generations will still have enough resources left to meet their needs. Waste-to-Energy Technologies are different systems, processes, and approaches that convert wastes into usable forms of energy, commonly electricity. And biosphere technology is a form of gasification that has broken the barriers of all green technologies in terms of output efficiency and how little the waste produced in the process is.
Biosphere technology can convert more than 90% of the feedstock's weight into green electricity and also 90% of the waste by-products is recyclable and can be sold again in the market. This wonderful technology has now been brought to the Philippines by a man famous for his love for Mother Earth, Mr. Ronald Shane Flynn. Ronald Flynn or simply "Ron" by his friends aims to equip the Philippines with 1,500 biosphere machines in a period of not more than a decade. Mr. Flynn has seen several mountains of trash in different dumpsites in the Philippines, along with the communities that have been built around them.
Mr. Ronald Flynn believes that the scavengers who live near landfills and make picking up recyclable trash as a living are in grave danger because the mountain of trash live with can collapse anytime. He also believes that biosphere technology is the answer towards eliminating the need for landfills. Biosphere machines use solid wastes as fuel in order to generate electricity. And a single biosphere facility can turn an entire landfill of wastes into enough usable and clean electricity to power an average community for a year. After the trash is cleared, the space freed from waste can be developed and involved into more productive endeavors thus making more jobs available. These jobs can be offered to the former scavengers to give them better options on how to earn a living.
Mr. Ron Flynn's vision has already captivated the Philippine government which has given the Biosphere Gasification Project and the Zero Waste Philippines Campaign its full and utmost support. The first biosphere facility in the country is already being built in San Fernando, Pampanga. The San Fernandinos are all eager and enthusiastic to see the energy generation and waste disposal revolution start in their city. Not to mention the new employment opportunities that will arise once the biosphere plant becomes operational.
The biosphere machines are being tested under strict international standards and the Biosphere MKV patented by Mr. Ronald Shane Flynn has passed all tests with flying colors. In relation to these, rich and developed countries that were left in awe with the B-MKV's potentials, have already began measures to adopt the said biosphere machine and begin their transition toward making biosphere machines their chief source of electricity.
With Mr. Ron Flynn and the revolutionary biosphere technology, Philippines has a brighter future as a cleaner and greener republic, and becoming much closer towards redeeming its former glory as the true pearl of the orient.
