FASC announces start up of a 20K ton/year Biomass Recycling plant in Okinawa, Japan
Abbotsford, BC - (WORLD STOCK WIRE) - July 26, 2010 -- Cal Kantonen, Chairman of First American Scientific Corp. (OTCBB: FASC) is pleased to announce the completion of a 20,000 ton per year waste wood pellet production facility by Biomass Recycling Center Co. Ltd ( BCR ) in Uruma City, Okinawa, Japan. The plant, which includes three KDS Model S-6 systems, was designed and engineered by JP Steel Plantech Co., FASC s licensee for Japan.
The plant consists of three independent production lines. Each line is centered around one KDS Model S-6 system and processes 2,750 kgs per hour or 22 tons of wood waste per 8 hour shift. Total plant capacity is 66 tons per day, or 20,000 tons of wood pellets per year. Future plans are in place to triple the plant capacity and to add 6 additional KDS systems.
The pellets will be sold to Okinawa Electric Power Company to be mixed with coal at the Kin thermal power plant and will add a “green energy” component to their power generation and reduce their dependence on imported fossil fuels.
This project represents a major achievement in First American’s plans to revolutionize the alternative green energy business of ‘turning waste into resources’ and will become a showpiece for our KDS technology. According to documents released by BCR “Our intention is to expand procurement of raw materials and research for other material such as sewage sludge and animal waste sludge to diversify the biomass resources.” Future plans include tripling the plant capacity and adding 6 additional KDS systems.
Okinawa, Japan, population 1.4 million, is a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean about halfway between mainland Japan and Hong Kong. Just about everything they need on the island is imported by either plane or boat, but according to local law, no waste can leave the island. It has thus become a world leader in recycling.
FASC’s patented KDS “Kinetic Disintegration System” creates a clean dry powder from waste biomass in an efficient, cost effective manner without the use of supplemental fuel. The clean burning fuel can be used in both domestic and industrial burners to create heat for electrical power known as “green energy”.
FASC has licensed operations in North America, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Europe.
