Supermarkets and Hypermarkets work on very low profit margins, as low as 3% of sales. Their business model, put simply, is to provide the retail customer the biggest choice and lowest market price all under one roof.
Over the last decade energy costs in retail have doubled and by 2013 the cost of energy for the ill prepared will be more than 2% of sales. The ultimate prize for energy cost saving in this industry is of course free energy generated onsite and from a sustainable and renewable green source. But so far it was either impossible or carried too higher CAPEX and to date no top brand Zero Net Energy Supermarket or Hypermarket exists. Continue reading

Modern bottling plants are designed to consume far less water than lets say a decade ago. SOLIDEA have come up with a new idea, using SOLIDEA’s own AirWell+ and providing pure condensed water from the atmosphere. “We have considered Schiphol Airport roof in Amsterdam to illustrate how Cola Air might work” says SOLIDEA’s Steve Walker “The air above Schiphol is just perfect for the Worlds first renewable Cola” Continue reading

The remote mining industry holds huge potential for the renewable energy and renewable water industry who fondly refer to their art as “Watergy”. SOLIDEA’s Watergy is an holistic modern economic approach to the combined energy, water and waste consumption of any installation an art that saves mine owners and operators money.
Good Watergy practice for remote mining project considers the full life cycle impact of the fuel, energy, water and waste design and both on and off the site. Watergy is a hot topic in the mining industry these days as public opinion, natural conservation and meeting tough new environmental requirements impacts project certainty even in the remotest locations.

Solid wastes cause congestion in the Municipal sewage system; small scale PARS H-WtE extracts solid waste in line upstream at a local level. “This significantly reduces the impact on the water treatments system at the end of the line” says SOLIDEA’s Steve Walker “A 2+1 containerized system is unobtrusive taking up no more space than three parking places, it processes the extracted sludge producing bio-waste pellets”. The pellets are then fed into the PARS CHP unit to generate energy. The heat is used in the drying process and the electricity generated keeps the whole pellet production process operational 24 hours per day with over half the energy produced supplied to the local grid. SOLIDEA has developed a truly sustainable value added human waste to energy [H-WtE] system. Continue reading

PARS CHP is making landfill practice history across Central and South Europe even in West Africa; “landfill is no longer part of modern waste management”. Says SOLIDEA’s Steve Walker “With PARS CHP WtE, the waste is recycled or made extinct at the sorting station” “MSW never goes beyond the tipping floor and at the existing landfill its the perfect solution to clean up Central Europe and West Africa”.
SOLIDEA are working with district planners worldwide who clearly prefer smaller sorting stations; with a PARS CHP WtE inline with the tipping floor; large scale ambitious new projects are dinosaurs they simply no longer make sense. Continue reading

If its railway or tram nostalgia you are looking for then Cuba’s Hershey Electric Railroad has it all. “Practically all of its rolling stock, running gear and overhead power distribution is pretty much the same equipment repaired or rebuilt as it was installed in 1922. “Hershey is the last most original and complete interurban rail transport system in the World” says SOLIDEA’s Steve Walker.
