A Typical Customer

The OE Gasification system can be implemented for various purposes by a variety of organizations. Primarily, certain characteristics that identify "the ideal user".

 

Important User Characteristics

• Year-round, steady steam requirement

• Local source of complementary waste stream for balanced fuel needs.

• Industrial process waste (animal, biomass, wood, paper, organic material).

• Space for the OE Gasification components - fuel handling, gasifier, boiler, filter.

• Steam load of at least 7,000 lbs/hour, preferably 14,000 lbs/hour and over.

• Access to waste (biomass, organic municipal waste or organic ICI waste),

• Progressive mind set to adopt an "environmental plan" where energy-from-waste solutions play an integral role in energy generation and waste management.

The environment in which an OE Gasification system can be implemented can vary.
There are certain variables essential to a successful implementation.

 

Three Essential Roles Must Be Fulfilled

1) The Energy User wants secure energy provision (quantity, quality, price) over the contract period

2) The Fuel Provider must ensure reliable fuel supply (volume, mix, price) over the contract period

3) The Energy Solution Provider must ensure that the system delivers the required energy performance and complies with environmental/operational requirements

 

The Waste Management Perspective

OE Gasification, in addition to reducing fossil fuel combustion, is economical and environmentally sustainable waste management solution.  Note the community and commercial benefits:

• Efficient disposal of industrial waste

• Locally viable disposal of municipal waste and biomass (sewage sludge, agricultural waste)

• Reduction in use (elimination in some cases) of burgeoning landfill sites.

 

System Economics

The investment in an OE Gasification 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 heat recovery equipment (i.e. hot water or steam boiler) will dictate the staffing requirement in most jurisdictions and the plant can be located in most commercial, institutional or industrial settings.

 

Variables
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 OE Gasification 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.


Government Incentives
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.
