Vista International Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: VVIT), a pioneer in efficient waste-to-energy technology, announced it has begun construction on the company's northeastern US waste-to-energy pilot project. This project will utilize the next generation of Vista's gasification technology, the MFG-8 Thermal Gasifier, and is the beginning of a multiple phase plan by the host company to reduce the amount of waste in landfills.
The MFG-8 Thermal Gasifier expands on the success of Vista's previous installations, which span three continents, and is capable of converting virtually any hydrocarbon-based feedstock into usable energy. Upon successful completion of this project, the second phase of the plan will involve the installation of a larger, permanent waste-to-energy installation at the host company's site. This project is being fully funded by the host company.
CEO Tim Ruddy sees this event as an important milestone for the company, saying "The beginning of construction on our initial third generation unit represents a giant step forward for the company, and is the result of a significant amount of hard work by the entire Vista team. We are excited to show the renewable energy community the advances in our newest design."
Vista International Technologies, Inc. has been producing waste-to-energy gasification systems for over twenty years, with installations across three continents.
