Green Energy Renewable Solutions Inc., a developer and operator of municipal solid waste processing and recycling facilities, has signed a Letter of Intent to form a joint venture with Landfill Solutions LLC of Puerto Rico to remediate and manage the Yabucoa municipal landfill in Puerto Rico that has been closed since 2011. The remediation plan is designed to bring the landfill up to current operating standards and reopen the landfill for operations while developing recycling and a 15 MW waste-to-energy conversion facilities.
Under the terms of the agreement, the joint venture will provide immediate remediation of the Yabucoa landfill. The initial phase of the project includes slope stabilization, construction of new road access and internal roadways, and leachate, run-off and flood control to bring the landfill site in compliance with regulatory standards of the Autoridad De Desperdicios Solidos (ADS), the environmental control authority in Puerto Rico. The JV expects to begin work on the site immediately and estimates that the landfill will reopen within 120 to 180 days.
Following completion of the remediation phase, plans include rapid development of a waste-to-energy conversion power plant and a recycling facility.
