How climate friendly is bio-mass?

Alternative Energy No Comments »

The EU is urging the UK government to review its biomass strategy, saying burning wood should no longer be classed as carbon neutral.

The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial strategy says subsidies are only given to biomass which complies with strict sustainability criteria and biomass is a “valuable” part of the National Grid.

Powermax Biomass Gasification Power Plant, Waste To Energy, Biomass To Energy, biomass gasifier, MSW gasifier, RDF gasifier, biomass power plant, waste power plant, msw gasification power plant, msw power plant.

The basic principle of POWERMAX’s biomass gasification system(abbreviated as BGPS) is to convert Agriculture and forestry products and wood processing remains(including rice husk, wood powder,branches, offcuts, corn straws, rice straws, wheat straws, cotton straws, fruit shells, coconut shells, palm shells, bagasse, corn cobs and etc.),MSW and RDF into combustible gas.

Our biomass gasification process includes three steps. The First step is biomass gasification, which convert biomass into syngas.The Second step is syngas purification.The producer gas coming from gasifier usually contains contaminants including dust, coke, tar and etc. The contaminants will be removed by the purification system to ensure normal operation of gas engine.

The Third step is power generating in gas engine. The high temperature exhaust gas may be reused by waste heat boiler to generate steam or hot water for civil or industrial use.Steam turbine may also be considered to make a gas-steam combined cycle power plant, which will increase the total efficiency.

The POWERMAX biomass gasification power generation systems are based on a modular concept and are able to applicable for 50-20000KW biomass power station.

A series biomass generator sets from 50KW to 1200KW are developed by POWERMAX to combine with POWERMAX advanced gasification technology.

These gas generator sets are using the high efficiency Siemens technology alternators,Chinese top brand medium speed gas engine(500-1500rmp) with advanced European engine control systems. The high performance of the POWERMAX biomass gasification plants and the later production of electricity with the gensets represents a competitive solution when compared with conventional boiler-fired system.

Comparing with other renewable power generating system, POWERMAX-BGPS is characteristic of:
1) Flexibility. Gas engine,gas turbine and even waste heat
recovery boiler may be used considering various power plant
capacity requirements. It ensures high power generating
efficiency. Different capacities of biomass power generation
plant can be designed with various types of POWERMAX-BGPS system.

2) Clean technology. Biomass, as one kind of renewable energy,
may reduce the emission of carbon dioxide causingfrom fossil fuel.Nitrogen oxides emission is very limited in our biomass gasification power generating system because of low temperature(700℃-1200℃)。

3) Economical. POWERMAX-BGPS is capacity flexible.Even small size biomass power plant is also profitable process and less land requirements make biomass gasification power plant more economical comparing with other renewable energy.Generally speaking,biomass gasification power generating is the most economical technology in renewable power generating is the most economical technology in renewable power generating plant,the cost of which is nearly the same as small-size conventional power plant.

How can livestock be a part of the climate solution? The natural carbon cycle explained.

Energy Efficiency No Comments »

We all know that cows (and other ruminants animals like sheep) emit methane, a strong greenhouse gas. But this methane is part of a natural, or biogenic, carbon cycle where the methane breaks down into CO2 and water after about 12 years. The grass then absorbs the CO2 through photosynthesis, cows eat the grass and the cycle continues.

The CO2 from burning fossil fuel on the other hand, stays in the atmosphere for potentially 1,000 years

This animation shows how the environmental impact of methane emissions from cows is fundamentally different to the carbon dioxide from fossil fuels.

In Australia methane emissions from agriculture are falling due to the innovative emissions reduction practices and technologies that are making the red meat and livestock industry part of the climate solution.

Delta’s Managing Director of Sustainability Amelia Deluca commits to setting science-based targets to reduce Delta’s greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, Delta has pledged it will fly on 10% sustainable aviation fuel by 2030 to help create a better world for all.

Global Citizen Live calls for action to halt climate change and for wealthy countries to deliver on the 0B climate pledge, B for famine relief, and COVID-19 vaccine justice for all. On Sept. 25, 2021, over 60M COVID-19 vaccines, 157M trees, and more than US.1B in commitments to climate, famine, and COVID-19 response efforts were announced as part of the partner-led campaign. The Global Citizen Live campaign continues in the lead-up to the G20 Summit and the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) later this year.

Renewable Energy Technology – Change for Climate Talks

Alternative Energy No Comments »

With a PhD in Microbiology and Cellbiotechnology from the University of Alberta, Jim Sandercock is the inaugural Chair of the Alternative Energy Technology program, a two year diploma in Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Biorefining at NAIT. In this Change for Climate Talk, Jim discusses how energy efficiency and renewable energy fits into climate action.

Change for Climate Talks are short and inspiring presentations by local community leaders who want to share their ideas on how we can act on climate change. This presentation was filmed during the first Change for Climate Talks on Dec. 9, 2017.

Harnessing The Sun And Wind: Inside Our Renewable Energy Future | Climate For Change | Ep 2/2

Renewable Energy No Comments »

In the second chapter of this two-part documentary series, daring people and enterprises take wind and solar energy to new frontiers across Asia through groundbreaking renewable energy projects. Deploying renewable energy projects on new terrain or on the sea is challenging but it’s transforming the region for good.

The programme features the installation of the world’s largest nearshore floating solar energy testbed in seawater, SUNSEAP’s 5MW floating solar system on the straits of Johor, north of Singapore. The sea presents new challenges and they must innovate to cope with fluctuating tides, waves, as well as wildlife, in order to send electricity back to the mainland.

The show also features the pioneering work of The Blue Circle, a wind energy company based in Singapore, as their team explores a new wind power site in Cambodia. It also features the development of the first foreign-owned wind farms in Vietnam.

Watch Part 1 of Climate For Change:

About Climate For Change: Meet individuals and enterprises pioneering projects that will bring cleaner energy to new frontiers. Clean energy will take courage but those who dare could change the world.
