Skip to comments.Patented Tornado Generator Technology which "atomizes" waste to aid Texas and Louisiana cleanup.
Posted on 10/04/2005 1:23:16 PM PDT by Visioneer
A new patented Tornado Generator(TM) accelerates compressed air to supersonic speeds in a closed cyclonic chamber where the air is powerful enough to almost instantly grind, flash desiccate and atomize solid and liquid wastes and other materials into micron sized powders. The Tornado Generator(TM) has no internal moving parts and is powered by compressed air. Needing only an appropriately sized generator and compressor, processing with the Tornado Generator(TM) is very robust and is capable of field operation.
The technology can cost-effectively and rapidly process a very broad array of wastes including agricultural wastes, septic wastes, municipal solid wastes, and construction and demolition wastes.
In its most basic mode of operation, the Tornado Generator(TM) can simply be used to dramatically reduce the volume of targeted wastes by about 90%, as well as the associated transportation and disposal costs. Systems based on the Tornado Generator(TM) can be rapidly deployed for use in the cost-effective management of debris under emergency or other conditions.
Additionally, with conventional pre-processing, the output of the Tornado Generator(TM) includes fuel pellets with an average BTU value of about 7,000 BTU/lb. These fuel pellets are dry, dense, odourless, and can be easily transported economically and safely to remote landfills or sold to local power utilities or used to generate power on site.
Lt. Commander John "Whit" Davis has been named chief executive officer to head GreenShift's new Tornado Trash Corporation,.
Lt. Commander Davis has a broad base of diversified management, engineering, operational and business development experience. Most recently, Lt. Commander Davis was the technical director for special projects at Vortex Dehydration Technology, LLC, where he led product design, development and implementation for many applications of the technologies underlying GreenShift's Tornado Generator(TM).
Lt. Commander Davis is a reservist with the U.S. Coast Guard, where one of his primary duties is the sourcing of disaster relief resources for disaster areas in the gulf coast region. Lt. Commander Davis has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the Coast Guard Academy and an M.B.A from Boston University.
Under the terms of the agreement, NEIE has agreed to use the environmental engineering, waste management and operations management services and patented technologies of GreenShift's various portfolio companies.
The agreement calls for the use of GreenShift's patented Tornado Generator(TM) technology and auxiliary systems for debris management and recycling on site at various locations in Louisiana and Texas and the surrounding areas.
The parties expect to deploy an initial commercial scale Tornado Generator(TM) system in New Orleans as soon as possible for efficacy testing with a view towards a large scale rollout of the technology for debris management in the region.

Is this an advertisement?
I'm not sure that reducing biohazardous wastes into airborne fine dust is such a good idea....
If it works on cats I want to order one today.
I don't suppose they sell perpetual motion machines too, do they?
Seems to me this has tremendous potential for waste reduction at garbage dump sites! Don't you think? If one were employed to reduce as much of the garbage dumped, into dust, that would reduce the size and perhaps even develope into fertilization potential...or am I just dreaming here?
Why didn't they have this out there before my Mother in law showed up last week?
Is this from that mysterious organization ORECK, the Office for Research into Extraterrestrial Cow Killings?
Who empties (or is left holding) the bag?

In an old Batman movie from the sixties, the Penguin did exactly this to all the world leaders at the United Nations.
Unfortunately, that jerk Batman added water and reconstituted them.
The Coyote already did this one.
Thus atomized, weapons grade sludge from the Big Easy could be applied over certain Islamofascist population centers, such as Mecca or Jeddah, utilizing crop dusters. But only assuming it was certified to consist of more than 25% pork products.
If it works, mobsters and others in "waste disposal" will be buying them in bulk.
Don't stick your arm in it!
For Christmas about twenty-five years ago I gave my wife the book "101 Uses for a Dead Cat." For her birthday a month later, I gave her the sequel, "101 More Uses for a Dead Cat." We are still very happily married, with two dogs.
Great, now Karl Rove can target punishing weather events with even greater accuracy, block by block, lol.
Interesting post, thanks
Debris removal is *the* problem in any post-disaster recvoery effort. If this thing can grind down the remains of all the mold ridden piles of what used to be homes - wow!
I'll keep an eye out for actual use and results.
