|VRADİ Municipal Solid Waste to Energy Plant Design for 1000 Tons per Day (500-1500) of mixed solid and semi-liquid waste (See list below) featuring three lane drive through tipping floor in a totally enclosed environment on nine acres of which VRADİ uses less than one acre (right rear corner), including provision for direct sale of CBM to power cars, trucks and busses at unsubsidized low prices.|
VRADİ the KEY to Unlocking more than twenty billion
barrels annually of renewable energy from US waste products
while recycling 5 million acre feet of pure water and
sequestering more than 225 billion cubic feet
of pure carbon dioxide (CO2) gas,
or 11.5 Million Tons of Carbon Credits.
VRADİ is the smallest, fastest waste to energy process
in the world and provides more -

than other renewable energy processes for
converting biowastes or biowaste combinations
such as cow manure and municipal trash &
garbage into compressed natural gas (CNG) more
accurately called Compressed Biomethane (CBM)
and/or electric power.
The VRADİ Process is the result of more than 30 years of research, by one man, research in the technology of anaerobic bacteria, a type of bacteria that lives, grows, and colonizes in the absence of oxygen or air. The same kind of bacteria that has for thousands of years lived deep in the earths crust, living off the vegetation and animal remains of our world of eons past, remains that were covered by glacial activity during the ice age. These bacteria evolved and adjusted to the heat and pressure of the inner earth and depending upon the heat, pressure, and feed presented to them devoured this vegetation and animal remains and in doing so produced such products as coal, oil, and gas.
This one man's dream and quest for a highly efficient, environmentally pure process to produce methane gas, the same gas we call natural gas, using the same bacteria that created natural gas deep below the earth's surface thousands of years ago has resulted in a unique and powerfully efficient process called VRADİ. He concentrated his research on thermophillic bacteria a variety of anaerobic bacteria that likes higher temperature ranges, has shorter life spans but is more highly productive and evolutionary adaptive. When Herman Miller announced to the world the VRADİ process some ten years ago pundits of the wastewater industry, even some PhD types, the only industry then using bacteria in digesters to any extent, said it couldn't be done. They pointed to studies done at the wastewater treatment plants in Los Angles and Chicago and a study done by the EPA itself at their Eastern research facility, studies that were all failures. But Miller had read all of these reports and, moreover, he had understood the whys and wherefores of these reports and he knew exactly what they had done that was wrong.
Unfortunately, there had developed a mindset in the environmental industry that says, "Do what ever is necessary to keep the EPA happy but do no more than is absolutely required".
This unfortunate negative mindset needs to be changed. We need to change to a mindset that strives for environmental and ecological perfection, knowing we will not always succeed but the mere act of striving will change the results of our work in a positive direction Miller says.
So it is, in these last ten years while America slept the Europeans have built more than 120 different kinds of process plants that use thermophillic bacteria and while these plants are far from being as environmentally pure and efficient as a VRADİ plant they have proved Miller's point.
Anaerobes (anaerobic bacteria) are a carryover from the very earliest life forms to evolve on this earth. The live, eat, breath, reproduce, and work in colonies where various groups take on the variety of duties required to maintain their preferred lifestyle. To work with anaerobes, you have to understand them, their abilities and disabilities, and Miller would say that you have to think like an anaerobia. Miller has spent a good part of thirty years of his life doing just that. The VRADİ Process is the outcome of those 30 years research and analysis of what works and doesn't work in the care and feeding of anaerobic bacteria.
