Southeast Equities Group and its affiliated companies comprise a Shared Services Network dedicated to the development and deployment of innovative technologies that seek to improve quality of life and that reflects our species’ collective fiduciary responsibility to act as good stewards over our natural resources.
The primary threat that the world faces today is the pollution and over-consumption of the world’s natural resources in ways that disturb the delicate balance of the global ecology. The widespread use of past scientific innovations, spread by the expansion of the 20th Century’s industrial complex, is the primary source of this pollution. As a result, the pollution of our air, water and food chains threatens our species’ collective survival.
The ever-expanding need for power generation is the single largest driving force behind this dramatic increase in pollution. Consequently, the Shared Service Network’s focal point is on the creation and deployment of economically viable energy technologies that rely on sustainable resources and environmentally sound methodologies.
One of the prime objectives of the Company is the development and deployment of economically sound green technologies for use in mineral and raw material promulgation, electrical energy generation, waste remediation, and industrial process applications.
In a world that has built its electrical, industrial, and transportation power supply infrastructure on the dependence and use of fossil fuel resources, an immediate shift in that paradigm would be extraordinarily disruptive to the economic health of our society. Indeed, the installation and overhaul of the energy infrastructure to support new power generation technologies will take significant time and resources. Accordingly, the Shared Service Network’s tactical strategy includes the research and development necessary to introduce transitional technologies that can increase the efficiency with which fossil fuels are utilized, with a principle focus on hydrocarbon management and manipulation, while minimizing the negative environmental impact of such use.
The technologies that the Shared Service Network is developing, along with other like-minded companies, sets the stage for a modern industrial revolution and a historic, job-creating economic boon. These technologies will provide for paradigm shifting revolutions in resource management and utilization, wherein abundance is created through efficient utilization and management.
This paradigm shift signals a new mentality of responsibility. These new technologies being advanced signals a growth in our species’ scientific awareness and the stimulation of an industrial evolution that reflects mankinds’ acceptance of responsibility as the steward of the planet’s environment and resources.
Our ever-increasing understanding of the universe made possible the exponential growth of the industrial complex, which gave birth to our modern way of life. But the limitations of our understandings have not been without significant consequence. These consequences are now ever present in the looming ecological disasters and resource shortages that currently face our society.
A principal social concern today is the negative environmental impact resulting from population growth; from the overconsumption of natural resources; from the waste products resulting from new and expanded metropolitan and urban settlements encroaching on the remaining natural landscape; as well as, from the mining and industrial processes that are employed to fulfill demand for consumer goods common to modern society. In essence, pollution is a people problem.
What is rarely discussed is the fact that most pollutants are, themselves, natural resources. Arsenic, cadmium, mercury and many others are considered highly toxic, yet they are base elements that are an integral part of the natural landscape. Mining is the act recovering natural resources, though the waste tailings that are left behind often pose significant health risk and become potential contaminants to water supplies. Even the coal, which is responsible for the release of significant green house gases when burned for power, forms naturally; methane is generated naturally through the decomposition and decay of organic material; and oil forms naturally. All of which, when disturbed or unnaturally concentrated and released as a contaminant into the environment, can cause serious ecological disasters that pose a threat to the various life forms that come into contact with the contaminants.
When we think of pollution, we are taught to think of soil, air and water contamination. However, the contaminants are, in themselves, natural substances. As such, pollution could more aptly be described as an unnatural concentration of, or the disturbance of the natural formation or deposit of, many naturally occurring substances that are harmful to life. When released in an unnatural concentration these substances can cause damage to living organisms and disrupt the natural ecological balance required to perpetuate life.
This is such a critical point because the pollutants are not responsible for pollution, mankind is. Pollution is an action, or lack of action, in which a human component has chosen to not manage the resource properly. In seeking a solution to this problem, all roads lead back to raw material and natural resource management techniques and technologies. It leads to a requirement for a new holistic approach to industry and a commitment to sustain the natural balance of the environment that preserves and perpetuates life. This requires technologies designed and implemented to reduce the footprint we leave on our environment. This is SEEG's focus.
The role of technology has always been to improve the quality of life and subsequently increase the chances of our species' survival. It is in that tradition that we must now look toward technology and innovation to ensure our collective survival.
