Powerhouse Chairman talks about appointing W2T as consultants 26/01/2017
Waste2Tricity is a structured solutions provider to the energy-from-waste (EfW) sector. We work with clients and partners to develop, support and invest in projects generating low carbon electricity primarily from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and Commercial and Industrial Waste (C&I).
Waste2Tricity focuses on deployment projects which use and integrate proven hight temperature gasification and internal combustion engines/gas turbines (ICEs/GTs). We see this as most efficient and proven combination of current conversion technologies and therefore holds the most potential for long term profit. Deployment projects in the Waste2Tricity portfolio will be proven, profitable and progressive.
Waste2Tricity is involved in three influential projects; projects that will define the EfW market for the foreseeable future. See details of our Bilsthorpe project
Air Products Teesside Facility
Air Products is a global supplier of industrial gases, performance materials, equipment and technology. Air Products secured planning consent to develop a 49MW (300,000 tonne) advanced gasification energy from waste (EfW) facility, deploying gas turbines at the New Energy and Technology Business Park, near Billingham, Teesside. In its role as a structured solutions provider Waste2Tricity identified the Teesside site for Air Products and the feedstock supplier.
Waste2Tricity EfW Consortium
As a structured solutions provider Waste2Tricity is spearheading talks with engineering, land holding, technology and waste management industry leaders; assembling a consortium to develop high temperature gasification EfW facilities at around 180,000 tonnes per year and independent of subsidy. Waste2Tricity intends to structure the investment opportunity and co-ordinate the consortium's activities by acting as the sponsoring partner in a Special Purpose Vehicle [SPV] to raise funding for construction of the plants.
The initial plant is projected to be operational within three years of project funding. Potential investors wanting more information should contact - investor.relations@waste2Tricity.com
In the longer-term, the second generation facilities have the potential to produce renewable hydrogen and could host a demonstration of AFC's fuel cell technology. Find out more on the technology of tomorrow »
Waste2Tricity has acquired the exclusive UK deployment rights (for use in high temperature waste-from-energy applications) for AFC Energy fuel cells. The introduction of AFC fuel cells could increase system efficiency by up to an estimated 70%.
Waste2Tricity's commitment to deploy proven technology, while investing in the technology of tomorrow, creates a stable future for the company, our projects and our partners.
In addition to its Deployment Projects Waste2Tricity also uses its expertise to advance development programmes to maximise returns for its shareholders.
Facilities generating electricity by way of high temperature gasification (and thus producing clean syngas) have the potential to produce renewable hydrogen by separation from the syngas stream. This can in turn power new generation developmental fuel cells. The introduction of hydrogen fuel cells, replacing internal combustion engines/gas turbines, could increase system efficiency by up to an estimated 70%.
Waste2Tricity has selected AFC Energy's fuel cell system as having the greatest potential to be the most efficient, low cost technology for generating electrical power from gasified waste and in a £1 million deal, Waste2Tricity has acquired the exclusive deployment rights (for use in energy-from-waste applications) for AFC Energy fuel cells in the UK. For more on the W2T/AFC tie up.
Waste2Tricity is also working with AIM quoted, PowerHouse Energy Group plc. PHE has developed the innovative PHE G3-UHt waste-to-energy, ultra-high temperature gasification reactor technology together with auxiliary waste and power solutions. This technology provides a mechanism to dispose of a wide range of waste streams by using them as feedstock that can be converted to synthesis gas (syngas) which in turn can be used to generate electricity for export to the grid or for use within an enterprise. Importantly the PHE gasifier has a small footprint and a commercial size starting at 25 tonnes a day, making them suitable for deployment at enterprise or community level. Having invested years into leading-edge scientific research and development, spending millions of dollars in testing and optimizing the core gasification technology, PowerHouse Energy is on the cusp of delivering its first commercial facilities to the world.
