Bio:
I'm Shayla, the proud will be, creator of Loads O’ Fun… Powered By Wanderlust. A circular economy based, resource recovery, and waste prevention system designed to provide the very best in locker based, eco-friendly, multi-purpose, mobile delivery, bioproduction, and crew support services for the hard working people in the traveling amusements industry and beyond… Loads O’ Fun, will provide app powered, locker based, laundry delivery, grocery delivery, mail and package delivery, as well as temporary storage solution services. All powered by Wanderlust. Our multi-pronged yet circular approach to power generation. By transforming bio-waste generated from the carnival into sustainable, renewable biofuel generated power. Through this process alone we will be able to prevent 50,000 tons of CO2 and other greenhouse gasses from entering our atmosphere. All while reducing or eliminating not only our energy and transportation costs through the use of anaerobic digesters, transesterification, wind and solar power. But by also reducing supply costs by upcycling our biodiesel fuels by-products namely glycerin into natural laundry detergents and soap for the Loads O’ Fun- laundry service. Completing the circle. Our surplus energy generated can then be redistributed back into the carnival itself, for a nominal fee of course. A rate far below our petroleum-based competitors. With anaerobic digesters providing natural gas to run our dryers, heat our water, or maybe even used back at a concession stand to cook food with. And, through the process of transesterification producing our own biodiesel for diesel trucks and possibly even in the generators that run the rides. By combining our B-100 biodiesel with regular petroleum-based diesel, to produce a B-20 blend of biodiesel that is suitable for use in any diesel engine model made after 1996 without the need for modification. By developing an alternative, renewable fuel source, we have the unique opportunity to reduce & possibly even replace our primary dependency on dirty polluting fossil fuels. An essential component in the quest for energy independence is to develop sustainable, renewable, environmentally friendly sources of energy. Such as the conversion of waste biomass into biofuels (e.g. ethanol and biodiesel). One of our main objectives is to develop mobile cost-effective methods for producing ethanol, alternative fuels, creating value-added materials from the carnivals waste biomass. In addition to this, we will be able to facilitate and organize the donating of approximately 42,000 pounds of various things like corndogs, caramel apples, and various other carnival foods from our concession stands per day to local soup kitchens, food banks, and charities through the Meal Connect network. Keeping it out of landfills.
