The P2P City Industrial Park (P2P City Park) model, as seen in the above rendering, is perfectly suited for any city of 500,000 or more in population. They serve as the processing hub for our regional network of stand-alone P2P Waste2Cash Collection Centers (P2P Centers) located in areas within and outside of their city regions.
Each P2P Center will collect everyday household plastic packaging waste, scrap tires and glass containers as outlined elsewhere on this website. The P2P Parks will process the plastic and tire waste to extract the oil that helped create them, which we will use to generate electricity for our onsite P2P Tenants, sell into the local or regional electrical grid, and further process into low sulfur transportation fuels. P2P City Parks will likely employ 500 or more persons.
Tourist City Destinations
P2P City Parks can work within or near large cities anywhere, worldwide. They are well-suited for tourist destinations such as Las Vegas, Nevada, with just 2 million in population, but over 40 million annual visitors, which we estimate generates over 300 tons each day in just plastic-related waste. Other well-known tourist destinations such as Orlando, Reno, and even ski resorts such as Whistler in Canada, Vail in Colorado, the Lake Tahoe California/Nevada region, and countless travel destinations like them can benefit from managing their waste better.
Metropolitan City Destinations
Over a dozen large metro-area cities within North America need a P2P City Park to address their landfill issues at the minimum, and also to reduce their CO² emissions. In America these cities include: Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Oakland, Miami, Dallas, Atlanta, and others. Canadian cities that could benefit include: Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and others.
EveryDay Plastic Packaging
With plastic packaging growing at a faster than ever rate (due partially to the increase in online consumer sales and packaging), the average western consumer in North America now generates an estimated 120 pounds of plastic waste each year. One-time use products such as water and soda bottles are consumed at a rate of a million bottles a minute, and almost everything in our grocery stores is packaged in plastic. We at Plastic2Power are not anti-plastic, but believe we can and MUST manage this growing waste better. Working together we can build P2PI into a publicly traded global Plastic Waste Solution Company.
The P2P Park model can be modified downward in scale or size to work well within many state, federal or even private prison systems. They could create much needed jobs and training for their inmates, while providing power to operate the facilities or sell back into the grid. They could grow produce needed for the entire prison system, as well, saving the state taxpayers millions of dollars each year in operating costs. The question is, do the state or federal politicians have the political will to make it happen?
The P2P Park concept is like a well-orchestrated large-scale business model, with a franchise like Waste Collection Center model, that can be duplicated into any number of sizes for cities or locations worldwide. The value proposition they offer a regional area goes without saying, but one thing is for sure - there is no shortage of plastic waste, scrap tires or glass buried in our landfills, and we keep adding to this at an alarming rate daily.
Imagine even 1,000 P2P Parks operating within North America, collectively processing 20 million tons of plastic waste (of over 250 million tons produced) and millions of scrap tires annually. It will create thousands of good paying jobs, over $2.8 Billion in fresh produce annually, billions of gallons of water, and other values generating billions of dollars of excess power into local electrical grids.
If one can understand the true scope of the plastic packaging waste issue, they will see the vast global potential of our new waste management strategy to address it. You will also realize that in time our P2P City Parks and P2P Port Parks can find well over 100 locations to process waste, supported by hundreds of P2P Waste Collection Centers within the next 10 years.
If you can see that becoming a reality, then you can see the vast global potential of the P2P
Park concept growing to 500 locations worldwide within the next 25 to 30 years. The P2P future looks bright and will become a socially-focused future impact investment public company to watch. Stay tuned.
