Methane Gas (Garbage) to Energy:

Alfa Eco is an international project integrator and producer of clean energy that provides overall supervision and control over our projects' activities. We produce electricity from biogas derived from organic waste. Our main business model is BOO (Build-Own-Operate), in which long-term energy agreements are executed with electric companies in advance of projects, thereby solving endless waste and ecological problems and meeting the endless demand for electricity.

Methane (CH4), emitted from organic waste, is a major negative contributor to global warming and climate change. We convert this harmful gas into inert gas, thus making a major contribution to preventing global warming and climate change.

  • We set up, own, and mange the project, ie. BOO (Build-Own-Operate).
  • We sign a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) with an electricity company or other off-taker.
  • We choose the best technology available and sign an EPC (Engineering Procurement Construction) agreement for a turnkey commissioning of the project.
  • We sign supply agreements with feedstock suppliers.
  • We provide financing, debt, and equity.
  • We choose a site in an area where feedstock is easily available and where electricity grid connection is nearby.

Organic waste in the USA contains enough energy to supply a substantial part of the USA’s energy demand. These millions of tons of organic waste are the “oil” fields of the 21st century.

Wind Turbine SWT Technology

Shrouded wind turbines consist of a turbine with a generator block inside the ducts. The construction of the SWT is by far less complex and more reliable due to fewer rotating parts than that of the conventional turbine. Unlike the conventional wind turbine the SWT does not undergo heavy dynamic load

A wind turbine converts the kinetic wind energy into mechanical energy. Mechanical energy is then converted into electricity. Operating principle of SWT: the wind power is proportional to the cube of the wind speed. This means that the raise of wind speed is 4 times, increase in wind energy 64 times

Advantages of SWT

  • Weight: The new SWT weighs much less than conventional turbines. On average, a conventional wind turbine weighs about 130 tons per MW and is composed of 82% of steel components. SWT with the capacity of 1MW weighs less than 35 tons. Each element of SWT can perform two or more functions
  • Size: Conceptually, we envisage creating SWT complexes that will include smaller turbines in a larger cluster. They will not contain any solid bulky components similar to rotor blades. Therefore, there are no real technological limitations to the power output.
  • Wind: The new SWT does not have a wind speed limit and could operate at a wind speed up to 60 m/s, thus significantly increasing potential energy output.

Advantages of SWT

  • Visual Impact: Conventional wind turbines are tall bulky structures that are visible from a distance with their revolving parts, and their sight may annoy and disturb people.
  • Infrasound: The SWT does not produce any infrasound, the fact which is confirmed during testing procedures
  • No impact on Radio Signal/mobile Phones: Conventional Wind turbines cause considerable radio frequency interference (RFI), which impacts communication on cellular phones as well.
  • Safety for Birds & Animals: Without open moving parts, SWT does not cause problems for birds and other living beings.
  • No Impact on Radar Systems



Telecom / Media / Technology

Wireless Communication Network

We specialize in building reliable ground wireless telecom and security networks in rural and urban areas. The white space in the 16-630 MHZ band is a segment of the wireless network that has had very little usage over the years, however, our technology is capable of effectively and economically utilizing this space. Alfa Eco has the capacity to create terrestrial wireless communication networks that can deliver voice, data, and television. Our wireless mesh self-healing networking has the added advantage of continuing to operate when a node breaks down or when a connection becomes unreliable.

We developed a specialized antenna that allows us to more fully utilize the existing Radio & TV Antenna Towers or masts for installation of equipment of our networks to expand coverage and signal strength. Due to the small size of the antennas and transmission characteristics, more antennas can be located on the same tower.

The white space spectrum is currently unused due to the physical limitations of existing technologies. To operate in these frequencies one needs an antenna that is much too large to fit into a pocket friendly mobile device. We have created and patented a wireless module capable of transmitting and receiving data in these lower frequencies that is small enough to fit into a mobile consumer device. The future of telecom is now.




Technology Startups

Alfa Eco’s incubator program provide seed funding for startups and early stage companies. We strive to get you through the first phase. This usually means: get you to the point where you’ve built something impressive enough to raise money on a larger scale. We introduce founders to our strategic partners, advise on issues and mediate disputes, help with intellectual property, and most importantly get you off the ground.

Our philosophy is simple: we are agnostic investors meaning that we look at every great idea in every industry. The program we provide offers essential resources, mentorship, seed funding and access to key partners & investors.‘Stay hungry. Stay Foolish.’

Report from Shell: "Average of around 35% of oil is recovered from reservoirs. The rest remains trapped in the rock. Boosting oil recovery could unlock around 300 billion barrels of oil."

Ultrasonic Technology for Enhanced Oil Recovery

Alfa Eco's patented ultrasonic treatment of oil wells is an environmentally friendly technology that allows producers to obtain sustained higher production from failing or decreased production wells. The treatment changes the well inflow conditions by removing blockage and restoring wellbore permeability. The success rate of our method reaches 90% and the increase in oil production is in the range of 40% - 200%. The main advantages of the ultrasonic EOR technology are low energy consumption, the possibility to treat reservoir selective, no harm to the well and its casing as well as no harm to the environment and to the people.

The Ultrasonic treatment allows for a narrowly targeted treatment of the producing formation with ultrasound (15-35 kHz frequency, power up to 10 kW). A custom high power surface ultrasonic generator powers a downhole tool inserted into the well for treatment - permanently or on a periodic basis.

Alfa provides the following range of solutions:

  • 1. Solutions for light and medium viscosity oil: short term treatment: STS
  • 2. Solutions for high viscosity oil: long term (on constant basis) deployment: LTS
  • 3. Solutions for horizontal wells

  • Our technology is based on ultrasonic stimulation of the wellbore perforation zone. The effect of ultrasound in the oil wells

  • Stimulation of the mobility of oil, due to changes of its structure in the narrow contact zone between oil and rock.
  • hanges of the diameter of the pores of the rock, due to cleaning by ultrasound
  • Decrease of the oil viscosity during ultrasonic treatment
  • Cavitation effects, including sonocapillary effect which contributes to wider distribution of chemicals if ultrasound treatment is combined with chemical treatment.

  • Advantage Summary:

    • Ultrasonic stimulation offers many benefits over conventional methods
    • Effective and efficient
    • Small -sized mobile devices
    • Low processing costs
    • The integrity of the wellbore and cement casing is preserved
    • Technically, physically, and environmentally safe
    • Potential to treat different layers differently
    • Remote monitoring and control
    • working depth up to 4000 m
    • Radius of affected area about 2 m

    Alfa Eco through its subsidiaries operates and manages prestigious private boarding schools in China serving Kindergarten through High School, as well as specialized, short term training programs. Each school is currently profitable, or about to experience a significant increase in revenue and/or net income as a result of that school’s expansion. In addition, some schools are moving from “non-profit” to “profit-making” status, enabling those schools to begin to acknowledge and report profits for the first time in their history.

    We began our involvement in Chinese education almost 20 years ago in a business that is still in full operation with offices in New York and Beijing, providing international cooperative education programs between and amongst more than 40 schools within the United States.

    These schools include SUNY (State University of New York, which is among America’s largest Universities), to a broad range of schools that include Purdue, Adelphi, Campbellsville University, Seattle University, Indiana State University, as well as a similar number of schools within China. As a result of that involvement and associations, we has been able to quickly organize and begin to implement programs that include study in Milan, Italy, for music and art, international exchange programs for Chinese and American students to each visit one another’s nations, advanced placement opportunities for those wishing to include education in United Kingdom, Spain, and elsewhere in Europe, as well as various other new programs.

    In addition, we are now integrating an intensive English language protocol in our participating Chinese schools, known as “ESL” – English as a Second Language.

    It is fast earning a reputation as a better alternative to the traditional TOEFL training programs and in addition to the current schools using the material, it will be made available to other schools within China as well, on a fee basis.

    Alfa Eco through its subsidiaries also offers distance education programs for US degree MBA, EMBA and DBA programs in Asia & Europe.
