Seeing science in action made a difference for students in Hawaii, as they received a first-hand demonstration of the Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS) at Camp Smith in Hawaii. Students from Damien Memorial School, learned how MAGS can process solid waste into bio-char, creating a zero waste discharge habitat.
The Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS) reduces the volume of solid waste by as much as 95 percent, which the Marine Corps says is ideal for remote locations like Afghanistan or Iraq.
Power Ten, Inc., in partnership with Terragon Environmental Technologies Inc., and the USMC have installed and prepared this new technology that makes it practical to eliminate waste locally and autonomously. Power Ten, Inc is the exclusive distributor of MAGS to the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security for Terragon Environmental Technologies Inc.
