The destruction of our environment is just as devastating as today’s worldwide poverty. Effects of this ecological disaster are tragic floods in various places particularly in highly urbanized areas and extinction of our wildlife. The environment that serves as habitat is gradually ruined due to continuous industrialization, inefficient garbage disposal, conversion of forests to agricultural landmarks, and oil and coal exploitation. But, take a closer look of this situation, all the causes of environment deterioration are merely for human consumption. If we have the capacity to destroy the environment, so, too, we have the capacity to conserve and restore it.
We can restore the already deteriorating environment even in our own simple ways. If in our own house, we keep everything clean and safe so we could live comfortably, we can do the same with our planet. It is our home that we need to clean and protect. What is essential right now is that we find methods that could help in restoring our environment. Use of renewable energy and reforestation projects could mean a lot to resolve this environmental problem. We could rely on green technologies such as the biosphere technology which converts waste materials into clean green energy.
Biosphere Technology is a waste to energy system that efficiently and ecologically converts waste materials into green energy. It is a gasification process wherein waste materials undergo thermal decomposition at elevated temperature and oxygen starved environment. During this process a mixed gas is produced referred as synthesis gas which is used to fire the steam boiler for green energy generation. Moreover, in the entire biosphere process other marketable byproducts are produced such as inert ash, high alloy steel wire and carbon black. These by products can be used by other industries as raw materials.
Through biosphere technology, we could help clean up the environment by providing efficient and reliable solution for waste management and energy generation. This technology can significantly decrease our reliance on fossil fuels when it comes to energy production. We all know that energy is very important in global development and in sustaining our modes of livelihood. However if we continue to rely on fossil fuels particularly on oil, we are as well destroying our very own planet. Burning of fossil fuels emits greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide that greatly contributes in global warming. Another problem with fossil fuels is it destroys our natural resources thus affecting ecosystems and wildlife. But with biosphere technology, it does need to exploit natural reserves since it uses waste materials to produce energy. This technology is even counted as renewable energy source based on American Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the Philippine Renewable Energy Law (RA 9513) of the Philippines which confirmed that energy from waste is renewable.
With various green technologies we can indeed restore our environment. We just have to change the way we are treating it. Remember it is our responsibility to take good care of our environment…its forests…and wildlife. As far as we are concern, it is our mission to take action and get involved in this matter.
