MES Has Been In the Renewable Energy Business Since 2010
MES has been involved in Conservation, Renewable Energy Planning and Site Selection and Connectivity since 2010. Our original focus was on 7 Utility Grade Solar Projects and began working with Energy Technology to manage the vast amounts of waste contaminating our water and air in the Chesapeake Bay and other important resource areas throughout the US, Canada, Africa, India and South America. MES assists its partners in evaluating and developing project opportunities. MES is a system integrator of solutions that processes waste to green hydrogen and RNG.
MES here to support you with your project needs. We offer Free Consultation that will design the optimum Waste To Energy solution that we will provide in collaboration with Bradam Energies.
System Overview Fundamentals
System and facility design must provide an environmentally responsible way to divert any carbonaceous materials from landfills and convert them into pipeline grade Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), Green Hydrogen (GH2), and Substitute Natural Gas (SNG). Byproducts like biogenic carbon dioxide for capture, fertilizer, inert aggregate used in the production of asphalt and cement, and clean water are produced during processing as well. The system must be combustion-free and yields a high quality energy, making it a radical departure from existing waste to energy processes.
All projects and their outputs must be economically viable; provide a substantial ROI and create job stability for communities
Our Process Outputs
Biogenic carbon waste comprises approximately 40% of the waste stream that ends up in landfills. As biogenic carbon waste emits methane – which is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere – biogenic carbon waste poses a significant environmental threat. Our system prevents food and other biogenic carbon waste from ending up in landfills and eliminates . . .
Hydrogen (H2) is a chemical element abundant in nature. Currently, most industrial hydrogen is produced by steam reforming natural gas and is used in the refinery business for hydrocracking. Hydrogen is also produced through electrolysis, which requires large amounts of electricity. A system must be capable of producing hydrogen in a much more sustainable way.
RNG is natural gas produced from biogenic carbon waste, meaning it does NOT come from fossil fuels. The feedstock used to produce RNG includes food waste, animal and human waste, wood biomass, and organic industrial and commercial waste. RNG is in great demand due to its biogenic carbon origin. The use of RNG qualifies the end user to receive carbon credits as offsets against carbon tax.
Substitute Natural Gas (SNG) is pipeline-grade natural gas produced from fossil carbon waste. Fossil carbon waste is any waste from either fossil fuel or non-biological origin, meaning its origin is industrial or the result of any non-natural process (oftentimes utilizing fossil fuels). Examples of fossil carbon waste materials a system should be able to convert into SNG include plastics, tires, and textiles.

Number of Landfills World Wide
Landfills and Solid Waste
Getting a Fill Up of Hydrogen
The world generates 2.01 billion tonnes of municipal solid waste annually, with at least 33 percent of that—extremely conservatively—not managed in an environmentally safe manner. Worldwide, waste generated per person per day averages 0.74 kilogram but ranges widely, from 0.11 to 4.54 kilograms. Though they only account for 16 percent of the world’s population, high-income countries generate about 34 percent, or 683 million tonnes, of the world’s waste.
When looking forward, global waste is expected to grow to 3.40 billion tonnes by 2050, more than double population growth over the same period. Overall, there is a positive correlation between waste generation and income level. Daily per capita waste generation in high-income countries is projected to increase by 19 percent by 2050, compared to low- and middle-income countries where it is expected to increase by approximately 40% or more.
Waste composition differs across income levels, reflecting varied patterns of consumption. High-income countries generate relatively less food and green waste, at 32 percent of total waste, and generate more dry waste that could be recycled, including plastic, paper, cardboard, metal, and glass, which account for 51 percent of waste. Middle- and low-income countries generate 53 percent and 57 percent food and green waste, respectively, with the fraction of organic waste increasing as economic development levels decrease.
