EcoTac is not a pellet – It’s a fuel briquette with a different
shape that is instrumental in it’s hydrophobic value
EcoTac is the only coal solid fuel alternative that provides a
consistently high BTU fuel value. (same as coal)
EcoTac will reduce emissions of sulfur, carbon dioxide,
mercury and many other pollutants.
EcoTac is manufactured in a physical shape and size that
ships and stores similar to coal.
EcoTac requires no special storage facilities, nor any fuel
handling retrofits, and it does not leach
EcoTac Fuel Briquettes from first facility already committed
via letters of intent.

Using today’s most advanced technologies that continuously
separate recyclable materials out of incoming MSW, that
otherwise would be disposed of at landfills & WTE plants.
We anticipate being able to recycle 90% to 95% of all incoming
waste materials. These materials will be either marketed to
end use manufacturers, or used in the production of EcoTac.
This project will be a model that will be used to show how
private industry can exceed state policy on recycling (e.g.
Solid Waste Master Plan).

Planned roof mounted solar panels
◦ Project plans to use renewable energy to power the plant.
◦ 92,000 square foot building will accommodate 80,000
square feet of solar panels.
◦ Can generate over 1,000,000 kwh/year in solar energy.
◦ Any remaining power can be virtual net metered to other
facilities.
We finalized our permitting with the Town of
Rochester on June 25th, 2013
MEPA approval received August 23rd, 2013
from the Executive Office of Energy and
Environmental Affairs.
We are just a few weeks from receiving the final

Sister company, ABC, can provide transportation as it
has reliably done so for over 45 years
Towns maintain right to market recyclables
This is by far the most environmentally friendly
method for managing Solid Waste.
• Higher Recycling Rate
• Solar Powered Facility
The full production of Eco-Tac fuel briquettes is
already sold.
Many communities signed with Semass before the
plant was built!!
Do you want to pay MORE money to have your
trash burned – OR – would you like to pay LESS
money and have your trash recycled at a solar
powered environmentally friendly facility?
