Electricity from waste?
Approximately 100 acres of wetland biomass or Phragmites processed and converted to thermal energy is equal to 5500mwh. From this approximately 1350mwh of electricity can be generated.
Our two stage combustion temperature in excess of 2000°F with one second dwell time makes this system clean when used to dispose of any combustible matter without the risk of toxic emissions.
Our system meets Ontario requirements for biomass combustor systems:
"The primary requirements are a demonstration of 1000 deg C combustion temperature for 1 second of retention time with a minimum residual oxygen concentration of 6% with an expected design range of approximately 6 to 8% oxygen."
Benefits of biomass power
Nutrient removal: Harvesting the nutrient-laden cattails and Phragmites removes phosphorous and other nutrients from the marsh/ great lakes.
Phosphorus recovery: The ash from the burned wetland biomass contains phosphorus, which can be recycled into fertilizer. Phosphorus is a scarce and strategic natural resource, critical to global food security but ironically the major factor for the harmful algae blooms in Lake Erie
Products: energy, heat, CO2, fertilizer, char, and silica.
Habitat improvement: Removing the dense accumulation of dead plants opens the marsh to sunlight, spurring new plant growth, increasing biodiversity, and renewing wildlife habitat.
Bioenergy production: Harvested cattails and Phragmites are aggressive problematic vegetation that have little or no commercial uses but are a carbon neutral fuel crop that can compete with the economics of natural gas
Carbon Credits: Wetland biomass can be burned in place of coal and other fossil fuels, resulting in fewer greenhouse gas emissions , and generating profitable carbon credits. Check IISD for more biomass information
