We’re on a mission to clean out your cans. Yep, here at Adbongo, we’ve been talking a lot of trash lately.
For the past few months, we’ve been plotting away with the fellow madmen visionaries over at Green Ox Energy on a project aimed at revolutionizing the way we view trash. In fact, we’d like to scrap the word “trash” altogether. In an effort to nudge a rickety old paradigm over a cliff, we will no longer use the words “trash” or “waste”. From now on, we will refer to the leftover odds and ends as “raw materials”, “recoverable materials”, or just “materials” for short. Why are the terms important? Because they signify our attitudes towards the subject. Recently, we’ve come to understand that landfills are actually goldmines. Now, we respect them as if they’re King Midas’ courtyards.
What exactly are we doing in the King’s courtyards? We are developing plans to mine the gold. Instead of allowing a community’s materials to pile up into a giant, toxic eyesore, we are proposing a change in the way we manage our not-at-all “waste” streams. Essentially, we want to revamp standard processing facilities. This model that will transform raw materials into glittering bliss. And so I overstate. To put it more realistically, our model will take materials and process them into the following: energy, high quality soil, water vapor, or green products which we will sell. The results: net zero “waste”, energy, gardens, and jobs.
We have created initial plans for an eco-business park. Ancillary businesses on-site will take in the recycling facility’s outputs to change them into usable products; each business will be consciously developed based on its ability to use excess materials from the recycling facility and other neighboring businesses so that the park will function as a sustainable organism complete within itself. As the business incubator, Adbongo will strap rocket boosters on the businesses within this park.
Over the last twenty years, as we’ve come to understand the detriment our happy-to-consume society inflicts upon the environment, many households and communities have heeded the recycling call. We applaud this fact! It is wonderful that so many have taken personal responsibility for the care of the earth in the face of a problem that sometimes feels overwhelming. With our model, we hope to make it easier for all of us to take care of the planet. We plan to rehabilitate and beautify the old landfill areas, and we will offer education and training on-site and for the community so that we might share the technologies we’ll be using with interested communities across the globe.
Where are we in project development? We plan on creating a holding company for the project, which we are calling Project Eden. We have a few sites in mind in both Austin and Dallas, and we’re going through the process of securing those locations. We’ve spent the last three months building the skeleton of our eco-park. We’ve planned the technologies, but we still need capital to hire the engineers, architects and consultants to finish the fine details of the plan for the investors we have on the table. To that end, we’re applying for grants and are open to additional investors.

Additional team members working on Project Eden:
Adbongo: We are fortunate to have Lance Abney on the Adbongo team as our Environmental Strategist. Lance designed, planned and funded a pioneering, environmentally sound recycling facility for Kona, Hawaii in the 80’s. He was also involved in Oregon’s successful recycling movement in the ‘70s. He’s also a master composter, and he is amazing at handling the details!
