At our core, Innovative Power Technologies™ (IPT) is a solutions-based company providing a localized answer to the global challenge presented by the disposal of municipal solid waste (MSW). Large and small communities alike are seeking alternate ways to handle MSW as landfills continue to fill up, burning becomes less of an option, and shipping garbage away is not sustainable. We provide the technology necessary to transform communities into cleaner and healthier places to live through a unique Carbon Negative™ downdraft gasification waste processing system.
Imagine a world where much of the waste we generate each day could be cleanly processed and eliminated from landfills. Imagine further, that we could mine waste from existing landfills and reduce the impact on our landscape. What if we could then take this processed waste and transform it into clean, reliable power? What if we could help change the world?
We need not imagine any longer. The technology is here, and the future is now. Our mission at Innovative Power Technologies is to bring this reality to our communities, our cities, our regions, our world. Using a patented downdraft gasifier design, developed and tested for over a decade, we are striving to bring this dream to areas across the globe and to make it a reality – one ton at a time.
We invite you to explore this site and learn more about the key to unlocking our solution for reducing the human footprint placed on our environment. A key that is Carbon Negative, founded in peer reviewed research, that not only provides a positive impact for the earth but also inspires our communities with new employment opportunities and better health for its residents.
Leaders that choose to employ our waste to energy technology will likely receive the public relations benefits resulting from being on the cutting edge of implementing this kind of transformational solution that is truly a win-win-win for the public, the businesses involved, and the environment. Of course, the initial good will is well deserved for the public benefit that results from the implementation efforts made. However, as operations continue, further opportunities exist for public benefit in the areas of job creation and improved public health.
The creation of additional jobs, by generating additional economic activity, should certainly be considered a public benefit that can be brought on by implementing the IPT Gasification System. Of course, there would be the jobs that would either be sustained or multiplied based upon the waste processing activities. However, those that also choose to use the by-products of the gasification system to generate electricity, harvest and sell the carbon based biochar, or supply the bottom ash as an aggregate for concrete production will further enhance employment opportunities in the area.
Populations that are challenged for ways in which to sustainably manage and dispose of waste can discover health related benefits as well. In fact, the US Public Health Service and World Health Organization have identified 22 diseases that are linked to improper solid waste management. The World Bank additionally reports that the practices of disposing waste in unregulated dumps, or openly burning it, create serious health, safety, and environmental consequences. In areas where these practices are commonplace, the CN2020™ downdraft gasifier could dramatically improve the chances of a healthier population.
Gasification has been around for decades in various forms. The CN2020 is patented technology, unique from every other type of gasification equipment on the planet. What makes this technology unique is the process by which the syngas (producer gas) is cleansed prior to exit from the process. The CN2020™ provides environmentally beneficial Carbon Negative™, thermal gasification by-way of the downdraft process created within the patented system. The efficiencies created by this process yield environmental and economic benefits that are second to none.
Individual projects will be owned by a third-party entity that IPT may or may not have an ownership interest in, depending on the project structure and the financing platform identified. In projects where IPT is invested, we feel having a local partner is essential for fostering success. In many cases the local partner would be responsible for identifying processing sites, communicating with local leaders, hiring the workforce, and day-to-day operations. The local partner would have an ownership share in the local IPT entity that has been established to operate the project.
IPT has enlisted CN BioPower to be the operations arm that manufactures, delivers, and installs CN2020’s worldwide. The mission of CN BioPower is to ensure projects are completed on schedule and on budget. With an initial facility in Thurston, NE, they are located within a HUBZone qualified county, so the operation may apply for HUBZone status with the US Government should this status prove important for US based customers. Capacity at the Thurston facility will be enough initially, though both IPT and CN BioPower expect additional facilities will need to be added in the future.
Innovative Power Technologies (IPT) was founded on the idea that the world needs a better waste management solution. In fact, our story begins with the realization that we needed to eliminate our own waste if we were ever going to solve these global issues. In order to bring our goals to fruition, it was imperative that we rethink the way in which we were conducting business so no more of our team's time, efforts, or resources were wasted. That's why, in July 2020, the people who have contributed significant resources and effort toward bringing Downdraft Gasification Technology to the world agreed to form IPT. Six shareholders, along with a few other key individuals, have established a positive tone and aggressive pace forward as we focus more on actions and less on words. Great strides have since been made toward realizing this years-old dream. Today, the exclusive license to produce and distribute the patented intellectual property for Downdraft Gasification has been secured. As we reconnect with existing contacts and identify new opportunities, we look forward to the progress we will make, the challenges we will overcome, and the things we will learn along the way. Does reducing the world’s waste and generating clean power at a carbon neutral to carbon negative pace sound impossible? Let us show you how and why it is a tangible solution today. Please explore this site to learn more about our mission, and let us know if you want to help us change the world - one ton at a time.
