  1. Sustainable Energy + Carbon Balance2012 Energy Efficiency Symposium IEEE Buenaventura, Westlake Village, CA Presented by Tom McGrathFounder, Channel Islands BioEnergy Channel Islands BioEnergy

  2. Overview • Numbers • Eco-system perspective • What? • BioWaste+BioEnergy • Why? • Profitable, Efficient, Sustainable Waste and Energy Solutions • How? • Three (3) Biomass – BioEnergy Subsystems • Who? • Channel Islands BioEnergy Channel Islands BioEnergy

  3. 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 Channel Islands BioEnergy

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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 Channel Islands BioEnergy

  7. 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 Channel Islands BioEnergy

  8. 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 Channel Islands BioEnergy
