Carl, we agree that a validation is needed to build investor confidence. And, we are finalizing an agreement with a very reputable U.S. institute to conduct a 3rd party validation. FYI, the company has a 10 ton per day unit that is operational in Monterrey, Mexico. Numerous individuals who are technically competent in the field of plasma gasification have seen it operate, and clearly see the obvious differences in conversion yield and parasitic energy consumption. You can see videos on the company web page.
This MICROWAVE-TO-PLASMA technology needs to be verified by a third party, such as Georgia Tech or MIT.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
