FirmGreen Project Featured in Orange County Business Journal
"We're trying to lessen the cost of renewable energy so it can be more competitive...."
ORANGE COUNTY, CA----FirmGreen Inc., a renewable-energy company based in Newport Beach, Calif., lands on the front page of Orange County Business Journal. The press coverage centers on FirmGreen's project at Jardim Gramacho (Novo Gramacho) in Brazil.
The Novo Gramacho landfill where this innovative project occurs is depicted in the internationally acclaimed documentary and 2011 Academy Awards nominee, Waste Land. A massive landfill site (1.3 million square meters, or about 320 acres) on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, Gramacho has been home to a host of garbage pickers for almost 30 years. The garbage pickers – known as catadores, earn a living picking through the trash for recyclables.
