Green Energy Live Inc. is developing sustainable biomass-to-energy conversion technology to meet a critical need for the nation's $154 billion livestock industry. According to a recent press release, Green Energy Live is utilizing proprietary gasification technology for the development of highly innovative, on-site manure-to-electricity conversion systems to enable America's 1.2 million livestock farmers and ranchers to convert their animal waste into clean, renewable energy.

According to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service's Census of Agriculture published February 2009, there are 2,204,792 farms and ranches and 1,152,903 livestock operations in the United States. The market value of livestock and poultry sold is $153,562,563,000.

Green Energy Live is engaged in the development of sustainable biomass-to- energy conversion solutions. The company is leveraging proprietary gasification technology for the development of self-contained, small footprint, renewable energy gasification systems to be rapidly and economically deployed at the waste site. Green Energy Live is focused on new biowaste conversion technologies that process methane gas from the manure of animals including cows, pigs, turkeys and chickens and convert it into electricity to supply the farm's power requirements and generate revenue selling surplus power back to local utilities.
