/PRNewswire/ -- GDT Tek, Inc.,
a company focused on renewable and sustainable energy technologies announced today that Green
Recycling, has scheduled test burns of its RDF pellets at 3 coal fired power plants across the Mid-West. RDF pellets have proven to be a viable alternative or supplement to coal with significantly lower sulfur and nitrox emissions. Green
Recycling also recommends GDT Tek's heat capture technology to all of its power plant customers as they seek to increase the Kwh output of every pound of fuel.
Bo Linton President
of GDT TEK, Inc. stated, "This is a fantastic opportunity for GDT Tek and Green
to establish our companies as the best environmental and economical landfill systems. GDT Tek's patented
waste heat to electricity technology can incorporate efficiently into its process a method to use its excess heat to help produce these RDF Pellets, so it's a perfect fit for us."
Don Willis President
Recycling Corp., stated "As the energy industry begins to move toward renewable fuels, such as RDF pellets, gaining efficiencies in the fuel to energy conversion process becomes more important than ever. The ultimate goal is 100% conversion of fuel to energy. Coal fired boilers from the 1950's may be as low as 30% efficient in their ability to convert that heat to energy. With modern boilers surpassing 50% we still have a long way to go. The remainder is waste heat. Until the day arrives that we can convert 100% to usable energy it is imperative that we capture as much of that waste heat as possible and convert it to usable energy. Our relationship with GDT Tek allows us the opportunity to add that capability to our portfolio as we speak with our power plant customers."
About Green USA Recycling Corp.:
, based private company (GUSAR) focused on single stream waste recycling technologies and waste to energy technologies. The company recycles waste products to RDF Pellets, Organic Fertilizer, Electricity, and many other products and is driving its adoption by power plants and other waste-heat generating industries.
Recycling is a Zero Landfill recycler. 100% of the material we receive is recycled for re-use or recycled into energy. Our waste recycling facility will be truly single stream as we take unsorted refuse straight from the waste collection truck and sort that material into recyclable goods. No pre-sorting or curbside programs are necessary. That statement means a great deal to us and is one we are very proud of being able to claim. The average landfills generate 6 million gallons of contaminated groundwater each and every year. With over 50,000 open and closed landfills in the U.S. that means we generate 300 billion gallons of contaminated water each year. That is the U.S alone. The amount of contaminated groundwater created all over the world is staggering. Whether it is an old landfill and the contaminated rainwater seeps directly into our groundwater, or it is a modern landfill and the rainwater is collected and sent to a treatment plant, the result is the same. Contaminated water enters into our water stream. Some will tell you that landfills are safe because they are lined to prevent seepage of contaminated water into our groundwater supply. Don't believe it. Even the liner manufacturers will tell you that liners have a limited lifespan. Liners get punctured by the material in a landfill. Liners degrade and weaken over time. Eventually all liners fail. When they do, the contaminated rainwater they are designed to catch seeps into our groundwater the same as unlined landfills. Lining of a landfill just puts off the problem to a future generation.

About GDT Tek, Inc.:
-based publicly traded company
focused on renewable and sustainable energy technologies. The company has licensed patented waste heat to electric power generation technology and is driving its adoption by power plants, landfills and other waste-heat generating industries. GDT Tek's waste heat to electricity systems are powerful enough to serve as a primary energy source, highly efficient, immediately cash-flow positive when installed under a Power Purchase Agreement and are scalable with system sizes from 150 KW/Hr to 5000 KW/Hr currently available. The GDT Tek system has been proven through a long-term five year installation at a
San Jose, California
-area landfill. Waste heat captured from landfill-generated methane gas generator engine exhaust and radiator jacket coolant systems is used by the GDT Tek system to generate electricity which is then sold to the grid.
