Green Conversion Systems (Rye, New York) has completed the acquisition of the operating contract for the Pinellas County (FL) waste-to-energy facility from Veolia ES North America. The facility has the ability to process approximately 3,150 tons per day of municipal solid waste and generates approximately 75 megawatts of renewable electricity for sale to Progress Energy. Thomas (Tommy) Murphy, with twenty six years of experience in the Energy from Waste field, will transition from Veolia to join GCS. Murphy’s goal, in joining the senior GCS team led by founder and Chief Executive Officer Marc McMenamin, will be to lend his considerable experience to GCS greenfield development activity and maximizing the opportunity provided by the Pinellas acquisition. Green Conversion Systems is a privately owned developer and now operator of energy from waste facilities in North America and the Caribbean. GCS was founded in 2008 and is the exclusive North American technology partner of Fisia Babcock (FBE) headquartered in Germany.
