“There is no future without renewable energy and sustainability.” Railton Faz
Technology Nucleus – is the Brazilian company started by inventor Railton (Faz) Lima, which holds all patents and is the worldwide supplier of a carbonisation via pyrolysis technology specifically designed to convert organic municipal solid waste into clean renewable energy and other highly marketable products with a minimum environmental impact.
Technology Nucleus has developed an environmentally clean process of carbonising organic matter via pyrolysis which results in high calorific value fuel briquettes. There is no incineration of waste but decomposition in an oxygen-free environment at carbonisation temperatures.
Technology Nucleus, through its exclusive representative in Australia, Ember Eco Solutions, provides a comprehensive waste-to-energy approach that simultaneously breaks down waste and recovers energy via scalable modular engineering solutions, which are robust and compact enough to operate in any sized location.
History and Values
Founded in 1993, Technology Nucleus, is a private scientific centre for development of environmental technologies, based in the northeast of Brazil. It works for the pursuit of solutions to achieve sustainable development in its purest form: development without compromise of the future. These are Technology Nucleus’ highest values which gel in perfect synergy with Ember Eco Solutions.
In other words, Technology Nucleus’ objective is to create and materialise projects for the improvement of life on Earth and, thus, community living.
These projects and technologies link economic, social, cultural and environmental aspects, all in the pursuit and enhancement of some of the greatest challenges faced by the planet at present.
Jose Railton de Souza Lima
is the President of Technology Nucleus and the inventive brain behind their technologies. He is a technical-industrial inventor, a community leader and a business man who has taken the world by storm with his inventions. Jose Railton de Souza Lima currently holds 19 patents in the industrial sector, many currently in use by several multinationals.
To date, Technology Nucleus has received many awards and recognition from local government, industry, social, business communities and international consortiums, some of which are listed below:
1ST PRIZE INTERNATIONAL BIOMASS AND BIOENERGY AWARD Bioenergy Expo Fair in Valladolid, Spain
In 2013, the Technology Nucleus with their municipal solid waste carbonisation plant won the International Biomass and Bioenergy First Prize at the International Bioenergy Expo Fair, in Valladolid, Spain, where it competed with other countries such as Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Canada, Chile, Denmark, USA, Spain, Finland, and others.
The Award was judged by representatives from global associations including WBA – World Bioenergy Association, RENABIO – National Association of Biomass and Energy (Sweden); Brazilian Biomass Industry, and others.
The Award, was presented by Mr. Oliver Dubois, Coordinator of Bioenergy Group, Environment and Climate Change from ONU – Organization of the United Nations.
2nd PRIZE BIOMASS INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY – 9 INTERNATIONAL BIOENERGY CONGRESS, Sao Paulo – SP, Brazil
The “Biomass Innovation and Technology Award BR” is awarded for the most innovative solutions in the Biomass sector in Brazil in. This award offers major incentives for companies to continue researching and developing innovations and technologies that help the Biomass industry to grow in the Brazilian market.
The Award, is supported by major entities representing the sector worldwide, such as the World Bioenergy Association, RENABIO (National Biomass Energy Network, Brazilian Chamber of Biomass Industries and Biomass BR Portal.
In 2011, the municipal solid waste carbonisation plant won the award for the BESTGREEN Technology as it aims to produce clean energy using urban waste as energy matrix in addition to solving one of the most serious environmental problems of the planet, the accumulation of garbage in landfills and dumps.
COPAM – ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION COUNCIL, Brazil
In 2010, Technology Nucleus’ carbonisation plant process received COPAM Certification. COPAM is the Environmental Policy Council and the body responsible for the formulation and implementation of environmental policies in the State of Minas Gerais – Southeast of Brazil. COPAM’s responsibilities include the setting of technical and environmental quality standards, the authorisation and certification of the deployment and operation of environmentally sensitive activities, and the adoption of the standards and guidelines for the State’ system of environmental licensing.
EXPORT MERIT AWARD – WOOD MAGAZINE, Parana – Brazil
In 2009, The Wood Magazine (Revista Madeira) recognised the municipal waste processing plant as an incredible achievement in biomass processing and clean energy generation.
2nd BEST INVENTION, RAITEC – INVENTORS FAIR, Brazil
In 2005, won the Second-Best Invention Prize with RAITEC – Recuperator of Volatile Gases, in Santa Catarina Fair in the south of Brazil.
