The Hoskinson Group is led by Gordon Hoskinson, the world-renowned expert and leading innovator in Waste to Energy (WtE) production through his proprietary gasification and combustion process that meets or exceeds applicable environmental standards today. He is also a World War II veteran.

The Hoskinson design is the Renewable Energy Solution that does not consume natural resources and uses only garbage and other waste to produce up to 10 MW of electricity per 150 to 175-ton per day installation.

Mr. Hoskinson is considered the world’s foremost expert on modular pyrolysis and gasification for the last 45 years and is widely recognized as the most important inventor in this entire industry. The U.S. EPA recognizes his work in the late 1950’s and referred to him in the late 1970‘s as the “...Father of the controlled air smokeless process based on the principals of after-burning.”

Mr. Hoskinson is and always has been “hands on” in all stages of development of each generation of his machines and has started several companies in this field including the current business located in Florida.

Mr. Hoskinson holds numerous patents in the field and is known for inventing the Hoskinson Pyrolytic Gasification technology for use in waste disposal; Pyrolysis is the proven technology breaking down of matter into char, tars, oil and hydrocarbon gas in the absence of oxygen. While Hoskinson’s Pyrolitic portion of the process is oxygen-starved, it still maintains many of the benefits of complete pyrolysis.

In 1954, Gordon Hoskinson was building heat exchangers in New Hyde Park, New York and had a lot of trash from the operation and large heat bills heating the plant. He built his first WtE unit called the “Shop Heater”. The trash from the manufacturing operation was ample to heat the plant. As suppliers of parts for his operation saw the results they wanted him to build one for them.

He started the true modern revolution in WtE through the world where small, efficient combustion units became a reality overnight.

Since 1958, Gordon has been making and delivering waste combustion units of multiple sizes and for various uses. His older component designs have been copied by at least 100 companies worldwide and in many cases, are still in use. He designed the controlled air and after burner combination, which was later called “Pyrolytic Gasification” by the Engineering Society of the United States.

Fly ash and dirt were the bane of the old incinerator design that caused a bad reputation for New York apartment buildings. It became a national joke in the 60’s. The Hoskinson design was a totally new design that eliminated this problem and gained immediate acceptance worldwide.

A demonstration in London at the Quaglino Hotel in the 60’s to the press corp of London led to more than 1000 machines being built by Middon Industries of Walterhampton, England the first year!

Throughout the next 3 decades, Gordon Hoskinson manufactured and sold thousands of units to many of the Fortune 500 Companies, the White House, other federal agencies, nearly all international airports, and most of the major medical centers in North America.

After his experience in Korea, Barbados and other countries in the 90’s, he was retained as a consultant by a firm in Indiana to develop the next generation medical waste modular combustor based on his decades- long proven experience and technology.

Two years of intense research was completed, and from that research, major innovations have been added to our latest version of Hoskinson’s successful designs legacy.


It just makes sense to use the waste and garbage that our society creates and turn it into a responsible and clean source of renewable energy.

This is the ultimate Renewable Energy Solution available today. Our Waste-to-Energy power plant is designed to convert many types of waste into a source of stable and continuous electricity for homes and businesses. And in the process, our design also meets or exceeds all applicable environmental requirements without the use of extensive and expensive anti-pollution control equipment.

Whether its disposing of Municipal Solid Waste, Industrial Waste, or Medical Waste, The Hoskinson Group has the right solution tailored to meet your requirements and we have the history to prove it.

Each Plant uses our proven and proprietary pyrolytic gasification process which reaches temperatures of nearly 2,000°F that very efficiently disposes of waste, pathogens, and other pollutants. Operating at these temperatures very efficiently converts even high-humidity content waste into power at up to 6 MW per 150-tons per day of waste. Higher BTU content waste may produce up to 10 MW per unit.

The Plant uses virtually no external fossil fuel, produces no discernible pollution, and uses proven and innovative Hoskinson technology developed by Gordon Hoskinson over the last 45 years, which makes it is easier to maintain and operate. Staying true to a “keep it simple” philosophy also reduces the Total Cost of Ownership and provides for the potential to operate each plant at a profit.

We can increase the waste throughput using our unique scalable design to consume up to 800 tons of waste per day and produce a corresponding increase in electricity production by co-locating up to four of our gasification and combustion units into one Facility. This multi-unit deployment strategy also provides for a rotational preventative maintenance schedule for each unit without shutting down all operations. Additionally, geographically distributing our Waste-to-Energy Facilities around larger communities results in more efficient waste collection operations that can consume thousands of tons of waste per day.

Our modular “bolt-together” design keeps on-site fabrication to an absolute minimum which increases the quality and speed of the installation. Full Facility operations can be initiated within 12 months or so from the time of purchase. Download our latest brochure here for a summary of features.

The Hoskinson Group has the experience and knowledge to solve the problem of waste that many cities face today.

In many cases, the electricity-generating component of the Facility provides a financial bonus to the dire need of removing the waste and usually provides a profit center for the community or private enterprise. In these times of tight budgets, this can help bridge the gap to pay for essential community services.

Known as the Father of modular pyrolytic gasification and combustion, Gordon Hoskinson has dozens of inventions and patents in the waste-to-energy sector. He and his companies have manufactured thousands of machines to convert waste into energy over the last 45 years, regardless of the type or variety. The following describes many of his accomplishments throughout his long and successful career.

  • Using our Waste-to-Energy plant reduces the dependance of fossil fuels to generate power - Fuel costs will continue to rise resulting in higher electricity prices.
  • Our solution changes the current waste strategy using garbage as a fuel and revenue generator - Costs to maintain the current waste strategy will increase.
  • We can also use Methane in our Plant that is generated from land filled garbage. Methane contributes more to greenhouse gas emissions that any other type.
  • Landfill fires are virtually uncontrollable, produce very toxic gases, and can be avoided through our controlled gasification and combustion process.
  • Landfill liners are susceptible to leakage after an earthquake and can start to leak toxic chemical into water reserves for decades.
  • We meet or exceed all applicable environmental standards.
  • We do it faster, better, and more efficiently that any thing else out there. There is no one more experienced than Gordon Hoskinson in delivering Waste-to-Energy solutions.
  • Our technology is proven and battle tested.
  • Our solution can provide a tremendous, long-term profit center for the owner of the Waste-to-Energy Plant.
