America and really the world as a whole is dealing with a waste crisis that is reaching biblical proportions. Simply put, we are producing way more waste than we can handle in an environmentally favorable way. The costs associated with managing our waste have skyrocketed in recent years. The Farming and Ag industries have not been spared this calamity. One of the biggest problems facing Berry farmers, tomato farmers and many others today, is how can we safely manage all of our waste Plastic. Whether it be field plastics (plastic mulch), drip tapes or even green house and other covers, it is piling up fast and the costs to landfill them can drive crop prices up dramatically.
The second largest issue on many farms is the constantly fluctuating, usually rising, price of fuel. At ReGen, we have a product/technology show you how to use one of your largest and most expensive issues, your waste plastics to power your farm with a cleaner, greener fuel. ReGen Fuels and Energy has scoured the globe to find what we believe to be the best solution for processing your plastic waste. Our waste Plastic Pyrolysis/Distillation system is the only one in the industry that can accept your waste plastic without having to clean it AND reform it all the way to an ultra low sulfur diesel fuel. We believe that It is also the cleanest system in the industry with very little emissions of any kind. We Would like to show a short video of how our system works.
