About Ze-gen, Inc:
Ze-gen was founded to develop and deploy advanced gasification technology which converts renewable biomass waste streams into energy and other beneficial products with virtually zero emissions. In addition to the environmental problems associated with conventional means of waste disposal, there is considerable energy content in ordinary waste streams. Industry data suggests that in the United States alone, over 50,000 megawatts of latent energy potential is unexploited every year as these waste streams are buried in landfills. Ze-gen is poised to be the market leader in the environmentally friendly re-purposing of these waste streams into renewable energy.
