THA looking at converting watse to energy

by | Aug 21, 2014

TobagoThe Tobago House of Assembly and Fourth State Energy signed a contract to undertake a waste-to-energy pre-feasibility study on the island.

Fourth State Energy is a Canadian firm that specializes in transforming waste material into clean, green and sustainable energy.

The signing took place at the Magdalena Grand Beach Resort Wednesday.

Green Fund Coordinator at the Office of the Chief Secretary, William Benjamin, commented that the feasibility study will look at how much waste is produced , the characteristics of the waste and whether the project is viable for Tobago.

The Chief Executive Officer of Fourth State Energy, Stephen Mader, added that the study will also show how much electricity can be produced, a plan for remediating the landfill, the anticipated location and cost of establishing a waste-to-energy facility, and the impact this will have on Tobago’s economy.

Benjamin stated that the study will dictate the way forward in dealing with sustainable energy, so that Tobago can continue to be ‘clean, green, safe and serene’.

The project is costing the THA US$100,000, which, Benjamin said, is within the typical range of prices charged around the world.
