In 2011 Green Light Energy Solutions has assembled a full-scale ready-to-use pilot facility on the territory of “Mashinostroitel” manufacturing plant, Green Lights’ production partner in Moscow region, Russia. This facility is considered the largest waste processing facility based on the conversion technology. The facility has been operated in a testing mode during November-December and has successfully processed wood waste and mixed municipal solid waste. On November 8th, 2011 it was presented in operation to potential customers and the media.
SGS, a renowned independent environmental and ecological laboratory and certification agency, provided environmnatal testing of the system's atmosphere emissions and carbon char (solid by-product). The results were obtained in February 2012 and proved compliance of the innovative equipment with national standards in USA and the European Union.
Upon completion of testing and certification, GLES will have its WCP equipment installed within a "live production," full-scale commercial operational project in the Moscow region with capacity of 110,000 tons per year of unsorted municipal waste.
