Future360 travels to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to uncover a remarkable new technology. FlexEnergy converts harmful greenhouse gases, like methane, into clean continuous energy.
Based in Irvine, California, FlexEnergy's innovative technology solves two societal problems: it can generate clean, renewable energy; and clean up polluting greenhouse gases.
The company's core products are the FlexPowerstation and FlexTurbine. Both create emissions-free energy from previously unusable, harmful greenhouse gases like methane, which is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide. The technology works by integrating existing micro turbine technology with a proprietary thermal oxidizer.
Manufacturing takes place in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where this fast growing cleantech company is in hiring mode. From technicians to electricians, materials purchasing to quality control, FlexEnergy a source of green jobs in the area.
The technology is currently installed in a landfill in Burbank, California. It's also being used in Russia to convert flare gas from oil fields into clean energy. The company says these applications are just the tip of the iceberg. www.flexenergy.com
