Numbers eco system perspective

NumbersEco-system Perspective

  • 2o C

    • 0.8o C + 0.8o C = 1.6o C

  • 500 ppm

    • 150 years –> 280ppm to 400ppm

  • 7B

    • 80M –> 16B by 2100

What biowaste bioenergy

What? BioWaste+BioEnergy

  • Generate base-load electricity from Biomass

    • Anaerobic Digestion (AD) produces methane

    • Slow Pyrolysis produces syngas

    • Reform methane/syngas to isolate hydrogen for fuel cells

  • Transform BioWaste to Biochar and BioEnergy

    • No hazardous (costly) downstream air, land, or water pollution

  • Tune system for fuel cell electricity

    • Scale for local available waste and electricity need

    • Optimize end-to-end BioStream value

    • Optimize carbon balance Biochar sequesters carbon in soil

Channel Islands BioEnergy


Why profitable efficient sustainable waste and energy solution

Why?Profitable, Efficient, Sustainable Waste and Energy Solution

  • Generate distributed electrical power

  • Transform local untapped biomass

    • Waste-to-energy asset by generating scalable on-site electricity

  • Improve greenhouse gas balance

    • Beyond standalone BioEnergy deployment

  • Reform Methane and Syngas

    • Boost hydrogen input to fuel cells

  • Refine end-to-end system performance

    • Scale for local needs

Channel Islands BioEnergy


How three 3 biowaste bioenergy subsystems

How?Three (3) BioWaste-BioEnergy Subsystems

  • Anaerobic Digestion (AD) and Slow Pyrolysis:

    • Configuration 1: AD Methane only

    • Configuration 2: Slow PyrolysisBiochar + Syngas

    • Configuration 3: AD + Slow PyrolysisBiochar + Methane + Syngas

  • Gas Reformer: transform Methane and/or Syngas into hydrogen + other useful gases

  • Channel Islands Fuel Cells: directly convert hydrogen into electrical power

AD

Reformer:

Methane

Fuel Cells

Biomass

Pyrolysis

WGS + PSA

Syngas

H2

H2O

Useful Gases

Biochar

WGS: Water Gas Shift reactor

PSA: Pressure Swing Adsorber

Who channel islands bioenergy

Who?Channel Islands BioEnergy

  • Production costs than half of competition per kWh

  • High energy efficiency 60 - 70% vs. 30 - 40% of other waste to energy systems

  • Alkaline fuel cell vs. solid oxide and proton exchange membrane fuel cells -- significant cost savings and reliability boost

  • Easier to maintain in the field, less down-time, increased product life

  • Innovative design, cutting edge fabrication techniques, low parts inventory & local green-tech jobs

Numbers let s move in the right direction

NumbersLet’s move in the right direction

  • 2oC – Livable eco-system

    • 0.8o C + 0.8o C = 1.6o C

  • 500 ppm –Plant carbon to enrich soil

    • 150 years –> 280ppm to 400ppm

  • 7B – Cure waste stream for human community

    • 80M –> 16B by 2100
