Transact Energy Corp.
Transact Energy Corporation fosters a culture of creativity and innovation. Our Z.E.W.O.P. transforms an environmental nightmare into a lucrative business opportunity, that creates both profits and positive social impact.
We have a highly experienced management team that boasts a diverse breadth of professional backgrounds. Our team looks to find unique solutions to complex, global problems, with the rapid development of technology as a driving force.
We are a Waste Optimization company for the Circular Economy, that has developed the World’s first and only ‘Zero Emissions Waste Optimization Plant‘ or ZEWOP™. Our technology provides a unique solution to returning municipal waste to the community as useful products.
ZEWOP processes municipal waste at large-scale volume, in an environmentally sensitive manner, and breaks it down into core components. These components can then be sold at market or thru advanced supply contracts, and generate profits for TransAct and our shareholders.
Through advanced sorting and processing technology, ZEWOP transforms municipal waste into 19 different products, while producing zero emissions to harm the environment. This the World’s first, large-scale solution to the global municipal waste epidemic, that follows the principles of Sustainability and the Circular Economy.
Whatever we get involved in, we want to use technology to help heal the planet. This means we set a few sustainability tests before we engage:
First is the Environment: Is the technology/process emissions-free and what is its environmental footprint?
Second, is Social: What social issue is the technology/process supporting?
Third is Cultural: How well does it fit into the intended markets?
Finally, Economic: Does it pay its own way, supporting prosperity so that it can be independent and exist tomorrow?
