West Coast Commodities and Technology, LLC of Los Angeles Headed Up by Michael Itaev Has Landed a Humanitarian Development Project in Abidjan Off the Ivory Coast
Los Angeles, CA, September 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Conversion of Waste into Energy Using Gasification Power Plant:
West Coast Commodity & Technology, LLC , a California Limited Liability Company with offices in Los Angeles, California, (WCCT)has committed to engage in the designing and constructing one or more Gasification Power Plants and recycling facilities in the City of Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire Ivory Coast.
The purpose of this humanitarian project will be WCCT assignment to convert municipal waste and other feedstock, such as rubber, glass, plastics, and wood, etc. into energy. This will be done by analyzing the contents of the waste, designing equipment which will enable the separation of the waste through recycling facilities, and converting the waste via the use of a GPP into various types of energy which can be sold to the Government and its residents at a reduced cost, and will cause a great reduction in the amount of pollution that goes into the air and water.
Need for Humanitarian project:
As it stands currently and universally recognized throughout the world that there has been excessive pollution in the air which creates great health risks and there is an urgent need to reduce pollution. The City of Abidjan in Cote d’Ivoire exemplifies an area where humanitarian funds are required to substantially improve the environment, and the health of its residents.
Abidjan is the largest city in Cote d’Ivoire with 5,000,000 residents in the metropolitan area and over 3,000,000 residents in the municipality. The current air and water pollution in Abidjan is very dangerous to the health of the people living in that city.
Doctors have linked air pollution to the rising rates of asthma in Abidjan, and the Minister of Health is now warning of a dangerous and costly increase in respiratory-related diseases if action is not taken. There are many thousands of vehicles in Abidjan that emit tons of pollution into the air, in addition to the a large amount of pollutants that come from a significant number of stationary power producing sources.
The pollution problem is so bad that Abidjan currently has “green cops” who patrol the city to educate the public and penalize polluters who violate the country's environmental code. However, the limited number of such police cannot come close to monitoring over the 3,000,000 people in the municipality. The solution is to be more proactive and innovative in reducing sources of pollution.
Goal of project:
The goal of the humanitarian project will be to greatly enhance the quality of the air and water in Abidjan by substantially reducing the amount of pollution, which in turn will substantially reduce the health risks to its residents.
This will be accomplished designing and constructing one or more Gasification Power Plants, and one or more recycling facilities, which will convert the waste into energy which will be sold to the residents at a price that is lower than they are currently paying.
Abidjan will also realize the following additional benefits:
-This project will result in the creation of over 1,000 new jobs which will not only provide income to persons who are now unemployed, it will also improve the overall economy of Abidjan.
-There will be a substantial improvement to the infrastructure in the vicinity where the GPP is going to be built as new roads will be built to facilitate the ease with which trucks can access and exit the dump sites.
-Reducing health risks that are associated with a polluted environment, such as cancer, emphysema, asthma, etc. will cause a significant reduction of medical costs provided by the Government and incurred by the residents.
-In addition to building power plants and recycling facilities to convert “new” waste into energy, the project also encompasses converting into energy 35,000,000 tons of existing waste that has ` been lying around for years emitting pollution into the air and water, and is taking up valuable real estate property.
-The project also includes building homes for many of the persons who will be working on the project.
West Coast Commodities methodology:
WCCT team of professionals have developed, manufactured, and built technically and economically viable systems for power plants, water reclamation plants, and municipal solid waste recovery plants, using unique architectural combinations of commercially available design, construction, process, equipment, materials, and technology.
Using what WCCT calls the “Best of Breed” architectural combinations of commercially available design, construction, materials, fabrication, and manufacturing technology will help achieve the goals set forth above.
WCCT has put together a team of engineers and economist to execute this humanitarian project on a professional executive level and has the full trust of the Abidjan authorities and council members.
