Sierra Energy wins Defense Energy Technology Challenge for FastOx Gasifier Innovations
Sierra Energy was selected as one of the winners of the 2014 Defense Energy Technology Challenge as part of the annual Defense Energy Summit and Innovation Showcase in Austin, Texas, November 11-13. The summit's focus centers on proposed initiatives, and how to accelerate clean energy and infrastructure solutions for the Department of Defense (DoD).
Mike Hart presented in the Challenge Showcase, and discussed how FastOx waste gasification helps the DoD meet its waste reduction and renewable energy initiatives.
As producers of over five million tons of waste per year, the DoD has been seeking the right conversion technology for years. A robust and flexible technology like the FastOx gasifier exceeds the limitations of conventional gasification systems and could move 301 active military installations, as well as over 500 forward operating bases, towards their zero-waste targets.
