Enviro-Fuelcubes – an alternative sourceMark Andy turns waste into green energyMark Andy, one of the leading manufacturers of globally distributed label and package printing and converting machinery, has put an emphasis on corporate responsibility, committing to reduce its carbon footprint by transforming waste disposal methods. The company has begun supplying a majority of its operational waste as raw material in the production of an alternative fuel source, Enviro-Fuelcubes, a green fossil fuel substitute produced by Materials Lifecycle Management Company (MLMC). This is a bold step in Mark Andy’s effort to positively impact the community and promote a greener environment.
Enviro-Fuelcubes will significantly reduce the amount of carbon dioxide as well as other toxic gases from being emitted into the air in Missouri from traditional fossil fuelsMLMC, located near St. Louis, MO USA, is committed to providing solutions to transfer millions of tonnes of Secondary Recovered Materials (SRM) – non-residential, non-hazardous, solid materials that are being land filled or incinerated annually in the USA. MLMC has developed a manufacturing process which converts SRM into alternative Enviro-Fuelcubes which are used by energy-consuming manufacturers to replace and reduce coal consumption. Other global companies are taking part in this initiative as well, including a Belgian-owned company which has committed to using the Enviro-Fuelcubes in its Missouri-based limestone operation. MLMC believes the solution is clear, “Unwanted materials should not be discarded as trash by businesses, but instead, intentionally managed as a valuable and marketable commodity.”
When operating at full-capacity, MLMC will divert 160,000 tonnes of material waste from landfills and produce 120,000 tonnes of renewable alternative fuel for Missouri’s energy-intensive industries. The remaining 40,000 tonnes of material will be captured and classified for a higher use within the recycling and re-use industry. From a greenhouse gas perspective, Enviro-Fuelcubes will significantly reduce the amount of carbon dioxide as well as other toxic gases from being emitted into the air in Missouri from traditional fossil fuels.
