Fuel from Waste
Our solution enables various customers to optimally convert their Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and organics waste into marketable green fuels to replace the use of fossil fuels in multiple markets such as natural gas, power generation, transportation, and industrial applications. The richness of this material allows waste to fuel production to be in substantial volumes where the raw material is not subject to volatile pricing caused by various markets as the fossil fuel commodity. The waste to fuel classified to gas and solid fuel.
The gas upgrading consists of the concentration of the methane present in the biogas to natural gas standards. The feedstock in the upgraded gas process is purely organic waste and produced gas is called biomethane, or the standard industry term Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).
The RNG market is significant. Currently, the best economics options are pipeline injection and vehicle fuel.
Emission Intensity Reduction
The state of California Air Resources Board (CARB) considers RNG as a carbon intensity of minus 14 grams of carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule (CO2 /Mj).
Local Supply of Pipeline-Quality Gas
RNG a stable commodity as produced on the spot of waste generation and as the RNG is interchangeable to conventional Natural Gas (NG) would inject to the existing interstate pipeline infrastructure.
Clean Fuel Vehicles
Transit fleets are the most significant users of NG. NG powers city bus and trucks are the preferred choice across North America which can easily convert to RNG.
RNG fuel is ideal for waste collection trucks and many government agencies fleets.
Our gas upgrading based on the amine gas technology by Ammongas which has the following advantages:
CH4 loss is less than 0.1% (0.04% measured)
The generated RNG is clean and pathogens free
PressureLess-safe and efficient plant
OpEx is two (2) times lower than other technologies
No wastewater production & No plant fouling
The treated CO2 will be 100% concentrated. Ideal for additional processes
Three-dimensional fuel targets industrial application markets such as cement, glass, steel, energy from waste and any combustion plants. It can utilize co-firing applications with other fuels such as biomass and coal. Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is the industry standard terms for such fuel where would have high energy values.
The layout below shows a step by step process of transforming MSW into solid fuel. The process starts with multiple sorting stages that harvest a constant supply of solid fuel to a designated power plant facility.
