Global Resource Corp., a developer of a microwave technology and machinery for extracting oil and gas, demonstrated the world’s first commercially viable use of energy efficient microwave technology to convert industrial waste and difficultto- process natural resources into diesel, methane, carbon ash and other reusable hydrocarbons in an eco-friendly process. The commercial prototype, Patriot-1, is patent-pending microwave technology that has an automated engineering process to provide a highly energy efficient, emission free way to convert a wide range of materials into energy. The demonstration successfully transformed large amounts of scrap tires into diesel fuel, methane, pentane, butane, propane as well as combustible gases, and carbon ash. Patriot-1’s technology can process other materials for the purpose of unlocking energy including: shale rock, tar sands, bituminous coal, heavy oil as well as the environmental hazards associated with municipal waste, tanker sludge, waste oil and dredged materials. Global Resource recently signed a joint development agreement with a large oilfield services company for the utilization of the technology with heavy oil. “The ultimate goal is for this technology to make such a significant contribution that it motivates the world's business and political leaders to embrace it as the de facto standard for processing waste materials,” said Mr. Eric Swain, chairman and CEO of Global Resource Corp. To address the economic viability for waste treatment, the technology will maintain an energy efficiency of 1:50, a ratio at which a wide range of materials become commercially viable to convert to energy regardless of commodity costs.
