Our mission is to collaborate with public private partnerships and CleanTech entrepreneurs through ZeroWaste + BioEnergy projects to build sustainable communities.

Building Relationships

We are a renewable energy organization building public private partnerships to integrate clean technologies.

Strengthening Communities

We strengthen our communities by replacing reliance on fossil fuels — BioGas for renewable electricity and transportation fuels + BioChar to nourish soil and improve water retention.

Cultivating Transformation

We are committed to cultivating an energy transformation that regenerates the land under our feet, helping form strong community foundation on soil — not oil — for a sustainable future.


what we do...

  • Develop BioEnergy Parks™ to deliver sustainable, cost-effective waste & energy solutions

  • Design waste & energy systems to produce renewable, net-zero carbon electricity & transportation fuels.

  • Create valuable byproducts such as organic fertilizer and BioChar.

  • Integrate commercially available, innovative technologies for maximum efficiencies.


  • BioEnergy replaces fossil fuels with renewable electricity & transportation fuels.
  • BioGas for transportation eliminates 22 pounds of carbon per diesel gallon (EPA).
  • BioGas cuts greenhouse gases (GHG) 88 – 100% (Energy Vision).
  • Methane is 34 times more potent as a GHG than CO2 (IPCC).
  • US landfills receive 30 million tons of food waste yearly which could produce 15 billion m3 of BioGas or 90 billion kWh of electricity (EPA).
  • BioEnergy replaces synthetic fertilizers with sustainable byproducts to rebuild soils.
  • Organic fertilizers help nourish soils.
  • BioChar sequesters carbon from the atmosphere in soil, as well as improving the ability of soil to retain water.


We build sustainability capacity in communities by advocating for a Zero Waste + BioEnergy paradigm.
