Friday, April 23, 2010

CleanTech OC member FlexEnergy was profiled on April 15, 2010 by the Orange County Local News Network. FlexEnergy is an Irvine-based company that has developed the FlexPowerstation, a mini power plant that converts methane into electricity with near zero emissions. Methane gases from landfills have traditionally been burned or vented to the atmosphere, posing a major environmental hazard: it has a much higher greenhouse gas potency than carbon dioxide. Now, methane can be converted into energy through Flex’s technology.

According to their CEO, Joe Perry, "Orange County has the potential to be a leading player in the clean-tech revolution. New Orange County organizations like CleanTechOC can assist in obtaining funding and fostering partnerships between government, universities, and the private sector. There is a lot of talent in Orange County, but more than that, the county has been a leader for many years in the clean and green movements. For more than 30 years the county and SCAQMD have been focused on making this a better, cleaner, more sustainable place to live. Now is the time for Orange County to thrust itself into a more visible role. FlexEnergy is benefiting from local expertise in industry, a partnership with the University of California Irvine, and local government leadership that believes in the promise of Clean Tech."
