System Economics

The investment in an Organic Energy system is a function of its configuration. Up to three "SK 1000 solids-to gas" conversion units can feed a single boiler and filter system to accommodate different energy / waste needs.

The project economics are also contingent on the waste and energy needs and may vary from case to case. They are dependent on the investment required, ranging from a completely new energy plant to a situation where the Organic Energy system only complements an existing energy infrastructure. In addition to investment and operating costs of the plant, the cost / value of the organic waste stream and the price of alternative energy solutions, will have an impact on the return on investment.



The project may also take advantage of financial incentives offered by governments to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and encourage the development and implementation of more environmentally sustainable energy solutions.

Avoided waste/tipping fee:
C$3.5 Million
C$4.0 Million
C$2.1 Million
C$1.6 Million
Total: C$7.5 Million C$3.7 Million

 

The savings will vary with the costs and volumes of the replaced fossil fuel, steam/hot water use, electrical production and the tipping fees associated with the waste processed. In the above example, a typical payback period would be between 5 and 8 years, depending on the Organic Energy system size.
