US Department of Commerce Awards First Exclusive Bioreactor Patent to ATI Petroleum
ATI Petroleum, a petroleum exploration management and operations company, announced that the US Department of Commerce awarded the first patent on bioreactor technology to ATI Petroleum. The bioreactor technology was created through a collaborative effort with the US Department of Energy, the EPA, and ATI Petroleum’s renewable energy division.
ATI Petroleum has conducted bioreactor trials in five locations including; one in Bakersfield, Georgia, USA, and four additional pilot plants in Vietnam. All five pilot plants are capable of generating clean renewable energy, and reducing greenhouse gases and leakage from landfills to nearly zero. Most impressively, the bioreactor trials found that not only does the technology reduce greenhouse gas effects and carbon footprint, it also reduces the waste cycle time for landfills from 40 years to no more than a 4 year decomposition time.
