Tres Lagunas : Bi-National Climate Change
Tres Lagunas: Tres Lagunas Multitech Plastic To Energy Conversion
A Solution to Reducing California Plastic Waste
The Tres Lagunas, three seas restoration project is calculated to utilize 9,000 gallons of diesel fuel per day. To meet this demand and create longstanding Blue Economic Development, Climate, and Water Security in Imperial County and surrounding regions, we have put together the initial design and teams of experts for a multitech conversion facility to take mixed plastic waste and convert it into a new reliable no-sulfur diesel fuel for the salton sea restoration projects. The intent of this project is to create a reliable infrastructure and a workforce that can deal with California’s growing mixed plastic waste issues that has been steadily increasing since 2012 when legislation was passed to increase reduction, recycling, and composting of California's waste.
Blue Economy Development: This complex would provide; manual labor, technology and trade jobs for the region (40-50 people), a new reliable no-sulfur diesel fuel source for the community, a new fuel market, and energy for microgrids. Bring Back The Blue will develop programs to incentivize “Fishing for Plastic” and Consumer take-back programs of non-recyclable plastic so more jobs can be created by generating value for our rescued plastic products that currently have no steady market. This will ensure a reduction of the escape of these materials into the environment and their reuse in industry.
Art Meets Adventure : Josh Hershfield
Exploration - Art - and Edutainment
My name is Josh Hershfield. I am a surfer, adventurer, and lover of this great planet we all call home. In collaboration with Bring Back The Blue, I am conducting a long-distance paddle to draw attention to the problem of plastic pollution, and inspire action to correct it. The Great Lakes are the largest body of freshwater in the world, home to 1/5 of all the freshwater on earth. In support of this powerful and vital ecosystem, I will prone paddle across Lake Ontario, from New York to Canada, crossing roughly 40 miles/64 kilometers of open water. This body of water has yet to be crossed in this manner. In being the first to do so, I hope to show that new challenges are chances for new victories. We are all faced with the new challenge of a world that needs to be cleaned up. Let’s get to it.
