af-plant-imageWhen developed in compliance with the strictest laws, EPA guidelines and environmental safeguards in place, alternative fuels can be an economically and environmentally viable solution for many waste streams that would otherwise be destined for landfills. Sage has experience sourcing materials with a high energy value and making material matches with end users who have the infrastructure and proper permitting to utilize such materials for fuel.

An alternative fuels program can decrease a plant’s dependence on traditional fuels such as coal while reducing stack emissions, and significantly lowering operating costs. Sage can help identify potential high energy content fuels from the waste streams of industry or agriculture within your market area. Next, Sage will have the physical and chemical characteristics of the alternative fuel analyzed with the closest scrutiny to qualify the material. Once qualified, Sage will begin evaluating the economics of use providing a complete cost to benefit breakdown. And finally, Sage will secure the fuel stream and provide supply agreements between the parties while arranging transportation and delivery of the material streams to the your plant.
