Mr. Ziegler noted, "I have followed the development of CleanTech's Pressurized Steam Classification technology to produce a renewable biomass from municipal solid waste over the past several years and believe that this technology, currently ready for commercial implementation, is an important step in the development of creating reliable, plentiful and economically viable feed-stocks for conversion to clean energy."
