This goes back to 1976 when I visited California for the first time, keep this in mind while reading, I am a small-town boy raised in the country where life was tough, a book I may write about someday.
I arrived in California with six dollars in my pocket and no job, but during my two year stay I was able to visit a landfill, (small-town boy) I watched as big trucks would back up to drop their load, I got to the edge and realized they were trying to fill an open-pit mine.
My little mind couldn’t rap itself around such a thing, I couldn’t stop thinking and wondering how they could or would ever build on that site, the depth of the hole and the hundreds of eighteen wheelers dumping trash, it took me back to when I was young and hung out at our local landfill looking for anything that had value.
From that small landfill in the 50’s to the open pit mine in California in 1976 came my idea to create processing plants, strategically located in America where access by train was possible, and the process is both simple and elaborate, and effective.
Remove all the landfills and stop the leaching in to our aquafers, dig them up load it all on the train and send it to the processing plants, then return the land to its original condition and build houses on it if you choose, after all were really not building more property. (Reclaiming I know)
This processing plant is designed to drive an 18-wheeler into the one side and get a handful of pellets on the other side and all without pollution or waste, and taking the handful of pebbles was metaphorical of course, and the pellets that aren’t resold to the forges are actually recirculated until it’s gone, image no more half-lives with plastics.
You’re are getting a little better picture of how I think.
After all, why just create another problem like nuclear energy? And that’s why all of these ideas fall together so well, a complete circle from conception to waste and in this case a giant shredder, how will you power it you might ask? Why, The CHEST of course, after all it is meant for remote locations.
So, this processing plant is a giant shredder that can process waste as fast as it can be fed into the plant, and a series of shredders and grinders and conveyor belts that eventually travels to the laser shoot.
The laser shoot is a series of lasers that are rotated so that from the top there is nothing but laser beams showing, they would be angled in such a way there are no gaps all the way down, the pellets will be fed unto shakers between the laser field that bounce the pebbles., the crude drawing shows it’s potential.
The top of the shoot is enclosed, similar to a still with the smoke being recirculated through a micro-misting system designed only to attach itself to the smoke particulates, then dried by forced hot air and sent to the bottom of the laser shoot to be mixed with a mulch, packed and sent back through the processing plant until nothing is left.
