Terragon Environmental Technologies (Terragon), creator of MAGSTM, WETT, and STEP technologies have been nominated for another award for their environmental changing products.
Lloyd’s List announced Terragon as one of the finalists for the inaugural Lloyd’s List North American Maritime Awards. Lloyd’s List is the leading daily newspaper for the maritime industry covering all sectors of the shipping world including Tankers, Containers, Ports and Dry Bulk.
Terragon, a partner of Power Ten, Inc. developed and offers a unique tool for waste management, sustainability, and energy. The Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS™) is an appliance supporting the dual goals of waste destruction and resource recovery critical to sustainable environments and efficient operations. MAGS™ enables the local treatment of waste, as close to the point of production as feasible, while recovering energy resources in an environmentally sound manner. In one day a single MAGS™ can process up to one ton of “as received” waste, reducing its volume by 95%, harvesting the valuable thermal energy contained within, and eliminating the negative impact of transportation, land filling, and incineration. In addition to typical organic solid waste, MAGS™ destroys medical and infectious wastes, pharmaceuticals, illicit drugs and contraband, plastic media, as well as a range of oily organic wastes. MAGS™ is ideally suited for military, hotels, isolated stations, remote parks, temporary work sites, housing or barracks clusters, humanitarian relief, or anywhere there is a desire or requirement to treat waste locally.
For ships, by combining MAGSTM and WETT, Terragon is creating STEP (System for Total Environmental Protection), the world’s first fully integrated resource recovery system from waste. STEP enables any habitat to use all its waste streams, such as solid waste, used oils, sludge, oily water, and gray and black wastewater, to generate clean water and energy for the environment. STEP essentially enables any habitat to attain “zero waste discharge” and significantly reduce its need for new resources.
The winners will be announced at the posh awards ceremony and dinner to be held on February 19, 2014 at the Houstonian Hotel, Texas.
The Lloyd’s List North American Maritime Awards will be a premier gathering of key shipping professionals from across the region and provides a chance for the industry to get together, not only to celebrate those that have excelled in their field, but also to meet with colleagues.
