Andrew Niemczyk escaped communist Poland as a 24-year-old, settled in Hamtramck, and developed technology to safely clean radiation-scarred Chernobyl in Ukraine. His story is told in a book released today — “Ground for Freedom: Saving Chernobyl.”
Written by DBusiness Magazine Editor R.J. King, an award-winning author, the book is available at www.SavingChernobyl.com. The book details how Niemczyk uses 100 percent of his brain’s capacity to develop technologies that safely clean radiation from the ground, transform hydraulic power, boost the nutrition levels of trees, and upend human understanding of physics, energy, nature, and life as we know it.
“The book, which was three years in the making, walks readers through the amazing story of Andrew Niemczyk’s life,” says King. “It’s a story of perseverance, overcoming obstacles, and staying true to his goal of bringing environmentally friendly technology to benefit the world.”
Born in 1960, Niemczyk worked in Poland’s coal mines and tried to escape the country’s communist regime four times, being captured twice and spending time in 11 prisons, before finally finding freedom. While in captivity, he learned to tap 100 percent of his brain’s capacity to turn the tables on his captors. It is estimated that most humans utilize only 10 percent of their brain capacity.
When he escaped through Rome and arrived in Hamtramck, Mich., thanks to the U.S. Embassy and the Tolstoy Foundation, in 1984, Niemczyk didn’t speak English, and fought rancor, greed, and jealousies to become a success story.
Using his unique brain power, Niemczyk worked at Aetna, an automotive supplier (now Sodecia Industries), for six years, first on the assembly line for a few weeks before joining the maintenance team where he introduced multiple innovations such as the basket tilter, sheet metal oil lubing machines, and metal debris runoff machines.
In 1990, he moved to Rouge Steel plant at the Ford Rouge Center in Dearborn where he spent 24 years and helped the plant to an astounding 97 percent efficiency rating.
He retired from Ford in 2014 and co-founded Hazel Park’s Exlterra with Swiss partner Frank Muller. Exlterra, Latin for Excellence for Earth, develops, produces, and commercializes sustainable technological solutions applied to the environment.
Exlterra’s products harness natures’ forces and renewable energy sources to operate and achieve tangible results. They are energy-passive and maintenance free.
Its NSPS (Nucleus Separation Passive System) technology, explained in detail in the book, accelerates radioactive decay by harnessing existing energy in the earth. In addition to safely cleaning contaminated earth, the NSPS system also can act as a preventive measure for active nuclear power plants.
In addition, the company’s NEPS (Nutrient Enrichment Passive System) tackles soil impoverishment and helps trees and vines not only grow larger but produce larger and more nutritious fruit.
Exlterra also has developed GEPS (Groundwater Energy Passive System), which manages stormwater issues, and HAZL and MAZL, two ultra-light and compact drill rigs designed to install its products.
Since its founding in 2013, Exlterra has been awarded eight patents and successfully installed its technologies on three continents. The company is active on the European, American and Japanese markets.
“Ground for Freedom: Saving Chernobyl” is available on Amazon as a paperback or ebook and at www.SavingChernobyl.com.
