EnergyWorks Pioneers Dual Solutions for Plastic Waste and Fuel Emissions

Posted by Paul Nanuwa at 3:38 PM on Wednesday, June 12th, 2024

Introduction

As global environmental challenges intensify, innovative solutions are emerging at the intersection of waste management and renewable energy. EnergyWorks, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MetaWorks Platforms, Inc., is at the forefront of this movement, converting plastic waste into diesel fuel through advanced chemical processes. This development not only addresses the critical issue of plastic pollution but also provides a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels. EnergyWorks’s recent partnership with EnergyFX, LLC, underscores its commitment to commercializing this groundbreaking technology by Q4 2024, positioning the company as a key player in the GreenTech sector.

Industry Outlook and EnergyWorks’s Trajectory

The global push towards sustainability has catalyzed advancements in both waste management and renewable energy. The recent breakthrough by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames National Laboratory, which converts plastic waste into diesel, exemplifies this trend. EnergyWorks is well-positioned within this trajectory, leveraging similar technologies to transform plastic pollution into valuable energy resources. This alignment with industry advancements highlights EnergyWorks’s potential to significantly impact both the environment and the energy sector.

Voices of Authority

Aaron Sadow, a leading scientist at Ames National Laboratory, emphasized the urgency of addressing plastic waste and energy issues holistically. “By looking holistically at energy and fuels, chemicals and materials, and their natural supply, we can design sustainable solutions for our plastic waste and energy problems,” he stated. This sentiment echoes EnergyWorks’s strategic direction, as articulated by MetaWorks President Scott Gallagher. “The amount of plastic that is ending up in the ocean is just shocking and needs to end,” Gallagher remarked. “We look forward to building a sustainable and profitable business together that addresses this massive problem of plastic waste in the US.”

$GRAT Gratomic to Launch New Graphene Ultra Efficient Tires $DNI.ca $LLG.ca

  • Developed new Graphene Ultra Fuel Efficient Tires (GUET)
  • Certification and terrain testing targeted for completion in Q3, 2019
  • The automotive tire market is large and is expected to grow to 2.5 billion tires by 2022
  • The GUET tire market represents a very large vertical for Gratomic which the Company will be vigorously pursuing in 2019, and beyond

Gratomic Inc. (“Gratomic” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: GRAT) (CB81-FRANKFURT) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials company is pleased to announce the development of Gratomic’s new Graphene Ultra Fuel Efficient Tires (GUET) with certification and terrain testing targeted for completion in Q3, 2019.
 

“Purely from a demand perspective, we have been pulled into a market which represents a very large opportunity for Gratomic. Simply put, our customers want what we have; high quality graphene. Not only are Hybrid Graphene enhanced tires fuel efficient, but they can also demonstrate better handling and longer life” commented Gratomic’s Chairman and Co-CEO Sheldon Inwentash. “The GUET tire market represents a very large vertical for Gratomic which the Company will be vigorously pursuing in 2019, and beyond.”
 

Gratomic recognizes the automotive tire market is large and is expected to grow to 2.5 billion tires by 2022. Gratomic looks to penetrate and disrupt the traditional means of tire production by providing graphene enabled GUET tires. To date, the global tire market has recognized that employing graphenes within tire treads, walls and the inner linings can make tires lighter, provide better grip and reduce rolling resistance to an extent that is not possible with existing tire compounds. On average, this would require 20 to 25 grams of graphene per tire. However, for the Industry, specification consistency and scaleability of supply have been limiting factors and to date have been the biggest constraints in commercializing Graphene.
 

Attributed to the right combination of geology at the mine and our processing partner, Gratomic strongly believes it can satisfy the supply demand of quality graphenes required for what the Company believes is the growing market demand for a new age economy tire. Gratomic is confident in its ability to deliver consistent quality and quantities of Graphenes to end users.
 

Gratomic has been able to achieve this through a unique collaboration agreement with its development partner Perpetuus Carbon Technologies who currently supplies substantial quantities of surface modified graphenes on a monthly basis to the tire industry through its Patented Plasma Process.
 

Ian Walters Director – Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited stated:

“Perpetuus’ investigative analysis and characterization has concluded that the Graphenes derived from the Gratomic mine are highly friable, more so than any other graphite tested for purpose by the Perpetuus Labs. The liberated graphenes when functionalized have demonstrated excellent processability. Initial application in a host of end uses has demonstrated excellent suitability for a range of products. Most noteworthy are the excellent results generated when the Hybrid Graphenes are included in elastomers for tire construction. Perpetuus looks forward to working with Gratomic to launch probably the first range of Graphene enabled ultra fuel efficient tires.”

 

Employing its dedicated facility for the patented Perpetuus plasma method Gratomic post plasma processing produces graphenes (less than 10 layers) of a high purity (CK 99.10%) derived from its Graphite Mine in Namibia.
