ERJ staff report (SS)
Denver, Colorado -- Vista International Technologies has signed a letter of intent with the Congress of the State of Jalisco in Mexico, to develop electricity and by-products, including carbon black, by processing around 5.7 million used tyres per year using VIT's Thermal Gasifier technology.
â€œWe are very committed to working with Vista to develop a first class, state of the art waste-to-energy project in the State of Jalisco,â€ said deputy general Luis Alejandro Rodriguez of the Environment, Sustainable Development, and Water Resources Commission, in an 8 Jan statement.
Vista says that its mission is to "reduce the carbon footprint, one step at a time," and it plans to help Mexico deal with the accumulation of various wastes in the country.
In addition, the company has been presented with another project near Guadalajara City to process 2.8 kilotonnes per day of municipal solid waste with its thermal gasification technology, again yielding clean energy and usable byproducts, and reducing the amount of waste accumulating in the city's landfills.
