GREENFIRE ETHICAL FILAMENT STANDARD FOR 3-D PRINTING Note: In addition to the standards outlined below, GreenFire DAO Foundation will comply with national legislation and also other recognized standards and conventions such as the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The Rationale for an Ethical Filament Standard A main goal of fair trade is to provide opportunities and stable trading partners to economically disadvantaged producers and to open up new markets (WFTO, 2013). Fair trade filament has the potential to benefit some of the world’s most disadvantaged – the millions of people, predominantly in developing countries, whose livelihood and income come from picking waste on dumps through the possibility of some income stability, access to the plastic value chain and further job creation without a large startup cost or difficult job training. Pickers can be employed to collect and process the plastic through all the steps shown below. As well as plastic collection and sale, through the acquisition of a recycling machine, such as a Filabot extrusion and filament system, , pickers will have the ability to enter the value chain and turn their plastic into filament themselves to provide a higher value return and diversify their income. This filament could then be sold to make useful products for local and national communities that could be in turn sold. In addition, a picker or other local workers could buy or be microfinanced to begin making finished products from the waste plastic filament. These finished products can have substantial value and can either be used to offset household costs or again sold on the market for profit. This process could be especially beneficial in rural areas where markets are not as varied as in cities and consumers simply lack access to many products. The main goals for a fair trade standard for filament are: • To provide an environmentally friendly and ethically produced filament alternative to meet market need. • To open up a new market for value added products that can be produced by waste pickers. • To ensure that a transparent minimum price is paid to waste pickers for the plastic used to make ethical filament. This will ensure that waste pickers are able to earn a wage that meets or exceeds sector regulations, collective bargaining agreements and regional average minimum wage (where these exist). • To provide the opportunity for waste pickers to further their position and improve their income (more…)

GreenFire Engineered Reclamation Offers The World’s First Reclamation Cryptocurrency GreenFire Engineered Reclamation is a Global Landfill Mining and Reclamation Company and is issuing a Pre-ICO to raise funds for the development of our Reclamation Coin. Our coin is the only cryptocurrency in the world dedicated to Global Reclamation. GreenFire Engineered Reclamation Global Landfill Mining and Reclamation Coin is the Global Gold Concerns – GGC. The GGC Coin Pre-ICO Sale is hosted at Small Gold Token – SGT – is the Pre-ICO fund raiser for Global Gold Concerns – GGC – and is a redeemable/convertible token. GreenFire has staked 100,000 Grams of gold for this Pre-ICO represented by an issue of 100,000 SGT Tokens. The SGT Token is redeemable for one gram of 999.9 pure Gold produced from contracted mining operations. OR Each SGT Token may be exchanged for GGC at a rate of 100:1. In other words Each SGT can be exchanged for 100 GGC during the boot strap phase. Global Gold Concerns is the host of the ICO for GGC, a gold and asset backed cryptocurrency, developed on the Ethereum blockchain. GGC is a reclamation coin. GGC ICO projected price is $1.00 GGC is backed with hard assets from: The precious metals reclaimed from the Landfill Reclamation Precious metals reclaimed from the reclamation of mine tailings Pledges of Gold from associated Gold Mines.

Green Fire On The Blockchain Green Fire has decided to change the world as you know it. We are moving together onto the blockchain. We have chosen “Green Fire Gold” (GFG) as the blockchain application name. GFG will be the first to take landfill mining and reclamation on to the blockchain. GFG is designed with next generation high load blockchain protocols, utilizing a blockchain design that improves functionality with each additional user, maximizing scalability and load performance. GFG includes your own private universal wallet that allows for immediate trading and exchange between all currencies and investment markets. The GFG blockchain is designed by the best in cryptocurrency development to create a coin and mainstream payment network usable by everyone in the world. The GFG universal wallet/coin combo can be used to manage your entire life and assets. Inside are a Universal Dapp store (decentralized application store), micro-services, micro-payments, smart contracts, universal exchange, universal payment system, and custom template decentralized app building, just to name a few. Understanding blockchain The Blockchain has become the default backbone for most new financial and business development. In essence, blockchain is a distributed database, or "timestamp server," as it was called by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto in the paper that proposed bitcoin. The blockchain consists of blocks of data — each block is a timestamped batch of valid individual transactions and the hash of the previous block, creating a link between the two. Because each timestamp includes the previous timestamp in its hash, it forms a chain. Each new transaction must be authenticated across the distributed network of computers that form the blockchain before it can form the next block in the chain. GFG is developing a fully decentralized, leaderless DAO*, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, and a fully distributed financial platform, OWNED BY THE PEOPLE WHO USE IT. GFG is using the MyCryptoWorld development platform to construct the GFG DAO. This platform develops on an advanced Ethereum blockchain. For the determination phase of implementation an interdisciplinary team of cryptocurrency, marketing and software veterans/enthusiasts around the globe have already started determining the intelligence that operates GFG. As soon the business determination is finished the whole system will be completely community/user driven and owned. From this point on the further evolution will be in the hands of all owners, using e-Governance/voting and other cutting edge tools to create consensus and run decisions. The GFG DAO is a (more…)

FerroGreen Power Pact, the FGPP. The FGPP is the special interest group of folks that are wanting to stay on top of what is happening in the world of Green Energy Technologies. April 6, 2014 — (TRN) — Americans are guilt-tripped over driving “gas-guzzler” vehicles, but it turns out that our own government is preventing ultra-high-mileage vehicles from being sold here; even though some are BUILT here! With mileages of 50 MPG, 75 MPG, 180 MPG and even 300 MPG, the government says these vehicles “don’t meet American standards” but they’re  fine for Europe — which has standards even higher than the US.  The real reason these vehicles cannot be sold in the USA is money: if Americans were allowed to buy these high-mileage vehicles, the government wouldn’t get as much money from fuel taxes as they get now and their oil company campaign donors would lose billions in profits.   So who makes these super-high-mileage cars?  BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Volkswagen.   Now read more to find out what the rest of the world can have, but we Americans cannot. . . The following report is intended to be a wake up call for the American people. There are no tricks here, such as quoting imperial gallons, referencing tiny cars, electric cars, or even hybrids. These cars are straight up 50 plus mile per gallon winners which are banned for sale in the U.S. If you think you can bring one home, think again. In America such cars are allowed a 30 day visit upon crossing the border, after which if they are found on American soil they get impounded and if not immediately shipped out of the country thereafter they are destroyed. The U.S. government quotes as a reason for such behavior that said cars are “not up to American standards”. But what about Europe, where they are allowed? European standards are every bit as high as American standards, (BMW vs Ford) but by a simple declaration from the government, the American people turn their nose and say if it is not up to American standards we do not want it here. Yet under all of this is a damning reality – there is nothing wrong with these cars other than the fact that they are too efficient and will reduce corporate profits as a result. Lets get started With a combined mileage of 52.8 U.S. mpg and an even higher highway mpg, the Urban Cruiser SUVcrossover by (more…)
