About Ze-gen, Inc:

Ze-gen, Inc. is a renewable energy company that is emerging as a leader in the development of advanced gasification technology for converting solid waste streams into a synthesis gas (syngas) mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas. Syngas is a platform fuel that can then be used in a variety of high-value end-use applications, including: steam production, electricity, industrial hydrogen gas, to form the building blocks for synthetic diesel or ethanol, synthetic natural gas, methanol, or as a chemical feedstock into a variety of industrial processes. By thoughtfully and efficiently disposing of these waste streams, Ze-gen reduces two problems simultaneously: the landfilling of energy-rich waste materials, and continued reliance on fossil fuels for energy needs.
