Program overview

Tristar Group, a USA based holding company encompassing various social impact corporate entities, is a global change agent bringing renewable energy and commodities trading to the world.  It’s forefront entity, Tritente Global Energy Group, specializes in developing green energy projects and bridging the transfer of technology, specifically the generation of power from alternative sources such as wind, solar, and geothermal between companies and investors in the United States with government entities and private companies in Africa. Tristar Property Management specializes in managing and developing urban communities. TSG, TSPM and TGEG, while simultaneously engaging, bridge technology and companies who envision creating self-sustaining communities, while producing thousands of jobs.

Over the past several years, efforts have been made to persuade both national and international corporations to locate their businesses across Africa. However, one of the challenges that Africa faces are how can an African movement, especially with Africa’s emerging markets, not become an exploitation movement? The people with the highest rate of unemployment in Africa are in all actuality the fiber and history of this Continent. Thus, any plan that does not include them will result in the development of modern cities without a history or soul. As a result, the exploitation that took place centuries earlier with the slave trade will occur again, only this time, instead of it being people, it will be Africa’s natural resources.

The key to economic development is innovation, growth and self- sustainability for all of the residents of Africa. TSG believes that we are on track to meeting this laudable goal with creating white-collar jobs, educating and training employees along the way. We are implementing a plan to address the third aspect of this economic development process, which is creating careers for the African residents who need them most.

Moreover, TSG recognizes that to uplift a community and fully ensure growth we will not only hire and maintain long term employment, but also will commit a significant portion of our profits to community and educational organizations, partnering with several local non-profit organizations to re-invigorate the hearts and souls of the people; re-instill the pride of honest work, craftsmanship and entrepreneurial efforts and to revitalize African city into a working class continent.

The Orbitron Companies, LLC (Orbitron) has developed and patented a unique and revolutionary product that significantly and positively acts upon lubricating fluids, thus extending the usable life of the lubricants. By utilizing this process in a variety of industrial systems, the degradation occasioned by varnish and sub-micron foreign contamination can be significantly reduced or eliminated entirely. This innovative technology is being utilized around the world in multiple applications and is helping end users cut costs and increase productivity. Orbitron prides itself on its creative marketplace solutions, its commitment to cutting-edge technologies and its superior customer service. 

The Orbitron® 3000™ is the world’s fastest and most efficient electrostatic fluid filtration system available. The Orbitron® 3000™ is a compact (about the size of a small refrigerator) and cost-effective industrial electrostatic oil cleaner that will allow equipment to operate with substantially diminished risk of failure due to contamination. The Orbitron® 3000™ allows users to cut maintenance costs and reduce wasted oil to a negligible fraction. The utilization of this Orbitron® technology prolongs the useful life of equipment, avoids costly shut downs and increases profitability.

 The Orbitron® 3000 filtration system has the unique ability to remove a variety of lubricant contaminants. The Orbitron® 3000™ system removes varnish, oxidation by-products, large contamination particles, and sub-micron contamination. In addition, the Orbitron® 3000™ system strips varnish build-up from internal metal surfaces. No matter what contamination issue your lubrication system has, the Orbitron® 3000™ has the ability to remove it. By utilizing its unique, patent pending interchangeable filter elements, the Orbitron® 3000™ will have your lubrication system operating continuously with pristine oil, while preventing future contamination and subsequent system downtime.

 “Safety Shield”, part of the Orbitron Companies, LLC family of products, is to expand the fight against infections.  Such infections are not bound by the walls of hospitals, health clinics, physicians’ offices, or private homes. Anyone who works with groups of people is at risk; while many understand this, unfortunately their defense has been limited to the same outdated technology for decades — alcohol-based hand sanitizers. These sanitizers only kill bacteria and they are only functional when they remain wet (about 30 seconds).

There is, however, a remarkable new product called Safety Shield. Safety Shield has created a proprietary time- release formulation that enables its hand sanitizer to be effective for 4 to 6 hours (and even persists with more than 50% protection after two washings with soap and water) against a wider range of pathogens than any other product on the market. Its polysaccharide matrix penetrates the outer layer of skin to increase the lipid barrier and form a gas-impervious protective shield against water-borne irritants and damaging environmental agents. Safety Shield kills every bacteria, fungus, and virus it has been tested against, while again, alcohol-based products only kill bacteria.

Safety Shield is non-irritating to eyes and skin and has no evidence of oral toxicity. It does not contain irritating surfactants, emulsifiers, or chemical detergents. Its soothing quality prevents chapped hands, which currently creates a risk for pathogen transferal, via cracking skin. Tests have shown it has greater skin moisturization than the leading moisturizing lotions.

After years of research and development, Safety Shield has created a remarkably applicable hand sanitizer needed in this time of spreading pandemics. Further tests are being conducted to ensure the product remains effective against emerging pathogens and suits clients’ specific needs.
