ROCKLEDGE, FL — June 23, 2019 — Mainstream Engineering Corporation, a 33-year-old Brevard County manufacturer with a history of developing leading-edge advanced energy-conserving green products, which are all manufactured in the USA, has been awarded another contract from the Department of Energy, this time to demonstrate their unique patent-pending process for the environmentally-safe conversion of dirty and useless coal waste, as well as municipal solid waste, into usable fuel.
For the foreseeable future, the Nation’s energy demand will continue to come largely from indigenous fossil energy resources and hydrocarbon fuels. Waste coal and solid wastes can be utilized as a feedstock to eliminate a waste stream, minimize pollutant emissions, and create a cost competitive green fuel source for power plants. This lowers energy costs, reduces the harmful environmental impacts of emissions, and has significant benefits to the energy security and sustainability of the U.S. economy.
In this effort, Mainstream will integrate and demonstrate a pilot-scale device and develop a complete design package for a 200 kW demonstrator-scale system.
