TRESOIL BIOFUELS SRL will promote a fast development and commercial take-up and deployment of the new Powerhouse Energy Group PLC (PHE) waste to transport fuel (PHEW2H2) (CHP)-Ultra Heat Temperature (UHT) distributed gasification DMG® technology power plant to produce 99.9 % pure hydrogen and electricity at community level from municipal and commercial waste (MSW). PHEW2H2 is a disruptive decentralized on-site new technology solution to produce a hydrogen transport fuel from waste that has the potential to replace diesel as a more competitively priced zero emission alternative fuel for all transport vehicles and also eliminate landfill waste. PHEW2H2 producing hydrogen (H2) from municipal and commercial waste (plastics and worn tires)(RDF) at 2-4 Euro per kilo will out compete polluting fossil fuels in both price and as an emission free green fuel. The market retail price for H2 today stands at 14 Euro/kg.
PHEW2H2 Distributed Modular Gasification DMG® is at RTL 7 stage and allows for easy, economical, deployment and scaling of a solution to air pollution and the environmental challenge of waste eradication. The attraction of the PHEW2H2 system is further reinforced by China’s decision to ban the import of waste plastic (RDF) from Europe and all other countries. Europe used to ship 60% of plastics and 13% of paper collected for recycling shipped to China each year.
Hydrogen can be diverted from the PHEW2H2 syngas with existing, off-the-shelf technology, stored at site and delivered to appropriate infrastructure in the most economical and environmentally responsible manner possible. There are more and more zero emission hydrogen vehicles and charging stations in Europe. Towns and cities are opening new decentralized market opportunities. Hydrogen is the “fuel of the future” available NOW!
The production costs of PHEW2 H2 DMG would be about €3 per kilo, compared with a current H2 market price of about €14 a kilo. Depending on the waste elimination gate fee, environment tax and subsidies, the H2 production cost could be lower. If we sold the H2 at 8 Euro per kilo this would give us revenue of approx: €8000 Euro per day (approx: €3 Euro million per year).
TRESOIL has negotiated a four way binding agreement as strategic partners with PowerHouse Energy Group PLC, Waste2tricity Ltd (EPC) and Wrightbus Ltd The PHEW2H2 will be factory built in the UK by ENSOLVE Ltd under the supervision of POWERHOUSE ENERGY the creators and designers of the PHEW2H2 modular technology system, then components will be containerize and transported to Romania. POWERHOUSE ENERGY GROUP PLC and WASTE2TRICITY will turnkey build erect, assemble and maintain the demonstration PHEW2H2 power plant, as well as all TRESOIL PHEW2H2 systems future client’s installations. PHEW2H2 Engineering /construction part of the Distributed Modular Gasification DMG® it is pre-fabricated, therefor it usually takes only about 1/3rd time needed to complete a similar project. TRESOIL as project manager will manage the description of work and deliverables task development of plant components, accessories and auxiliary equipment. TRESOIL’s team is Romanian with substantial experience (11 years) in EPC procurement, analyzing systems of production that meets customer’s needs. TRESOIL’s objective competences will be further detailed in the feasibility and business plan. TRESOIL engineers and technicians to initially operate and maintain the unit, and will in turn pass this knowledge on to the end users. Only two non-technical persons are required to operate a PHEW2H2 unit
Our PHEW2H2 project is decentralized, disruptive producing hydrogen (H2) from municipal and commercial waste (plastics and worn tires)(RDF). Distributed Modular Gasification DMG® is at RTL 7 stage and allows for easy, economical, deployment and scaling of a solution to air pollution and the environmental challenge of waste eradication. The attraction of the PHEW2H2 system is further reinforced by China’s decision to ban the import of waste plastic (RDF) from Europe and all other countries. Europe used to ship 60% of plastics and 13% of paper collected for recycling shipped to China each year. Europe has also a huge problem with waste management and landfill dumps. PHEW2H2 solves two substantial problem air pollution and indiscriminate waste dumping into landfill and illegal dumps.
There are several municipalities in Romania (Bucharest, Cluj, Constanta and, Timisoara) Bulgaria (Sofia) interested in in producing hydrogen from waste plastics and worn tires to fuel their urban transport needs for alternatives to polluting diesel buses and service trucks. These municipalities all have huge plastic waste issues and want to demonstrate zero emission hydrogen buses and other vehicle.
Competing H2 producing technologies (1) by reforming of natural gas to H2, (2) conversion of coal to H2, (3) nuclear energy to produce H2, (5) production of H2 from biomass all these are expensive and polluting. It will also out-compete H2 produced through electrolysis of water which uses solar and wind only when this is available (approx: 3 hours per day “yearly average”) this production is an expensive ways to produce H2 using electricity to separate water into H2 and oxygen. PHEW2H2 revenue stream will come from the procurement and eradication of plastic and other waste into Refuse Derive Fuel (RDF). TRESOIL gets paid to take this RDF and creates revenue from production of H2 fuel sales and of electricity 24 hours per day and landfill gate fee, environment tax. The PHEW2H2 process produces very low levels of safe residues and requires a small operating footprint, making it suitable for deployment at enterprise and community levels
At present most waste is incinerated this method of disposal releases noxious gases and airborne pollutants into the atmosphere and creates highly undesirable residual or goes to Landfill – which is outdated, environmentally undesirable, health hazardous, contaminates ground water, high gate fee and taxes and rising year on year in the European Union. Landfilling is now a last resort for waste management and strictly limited, landfilled waste must be sent to sites that comply with the EU Directive on landfill. “Unfortunately the scenario where waste is just dumped still represents 70% globally , where not only are we seeing CO2 emissions, but a lot of short lived climate pollutants such as black soot from the burning of dumpsites. These dumpsites are the most toxic places on earth.”(Quote COP21 Paris conference). The PHEW2E system is an opportunity for Europe to stimulate its economic growth by disconnecting itself from the use of fossil resources, addressing EU and global climate change / environmental pollution concerns and solve its waste disposal issues.
PHEW2H2 is an innovative technology solution processing municipal and commercial solid waste (MSW) management applications. The project objective is to write a feasibility study to successfully scale up PHEW2H2 systems for market readiness. Residential projects and commercial clients are able to divest themselves of waste they produce on a daily basis, and take advantage of self-produced electricity and thermal heat for their own use, or sold to the national grid, as well as creating from waste sources, saleable usable products. Distributed Modular Gasification allows for easy, economical, deployment and scaling of a sound solution to the environmental challenges of waste elimination, and localised electricity (CHP) demand. The world market for waste-to-energy is projected to reach $33 billion by the year 2023. This growth is driven by an increase in solid waste (MSW) generation, raised energy costs and a reduction in landfill capacity.
How the PHEW2H2 Process works.
Step 1 -Material with high calorific values such as tyres, plastics, bio-mass, municipal solid waste, hospital and hazardous waste, is shredded and then separated into recyclable materials and feedstock for PHEW2H
Step 2 -feedstock is passed through vacuum controlled feed bin system to remove any air.
Step 3 -air-free feedstock moves through the rotating ultra-high temperature gasification chamber at atmospheric pressure in a non-combustive environment. The reactor, operating at above 1,200°C, breaks-down the feedstock within seconds, converting it into synthesis gas (syngas) which can be as much as 70% hydrogen .
Step 4 -The syngas passes out of the reactor and any remaining solids, which are benign, are removed and sold to the construction and ground covering industry.
Step 5 -The syngas is then “scrubbed” twice by a shower of caustic liquid. This effectively washes the gas of any impurities including harmful emissions such as NOx, SOx, toxic ash, tars, dioxin or furans.
Step 6 -The syngas can then be used to and separated with a little off-the-shelf technology into pure hydrogen, with the remaining carbon monoxide (a fuel) used to power the PHEW2H reactor continuously.
