  • I love the notion and of course, hydrocarbon fuels can be synthesised from methanol. Still, on a large scale, I can't see how it can work without nukes to power it.

Making Renewable Fuel by Carbon Recycling - KC Tran - Carbon Recycling International - April 2010

  1. 1. Making Renewable Fuel by Carbon Recycling By: K-C Tran CEO and Co-founder, Carbon Recycling International Fulbright US Iceland Partnership Award Recipient “Emission Reduction, Energy Storage and Sustainability”
  2. 2. CO2 as Feedstock • Greenhouse Gas Emissions – World temperature rise – ~ 0.6 oC – CO2 concentration rise – ~180 ppm – Source of CO2 – primarily from energy production • Energy Resources – Fossil Fuel Limits o Forms 86% of world’s primary energy sources o R/P ratios in years: Oil (40), Natural Gas (55), Coal (137) – Infrastructure and Technology Limits o Off peak and off grid energy capture o Stranded renewable energy sources: wind, geothermal, tidal, and biomass 2
  3. 3. Sources of Energy • Response – Renewable Energy Directives – Biofuel and green energy targets – Off peak pricing strategies • Implementation – Renewable energy (geothermal, wind, solar etc.) – Alternative fuels and flexible Fuel vehicles – Off peak house hold use of energy • Challenges – Wind energy penetration in to grid – Biomass and food production competition 3
  4. 4. Innovation Incentives • Response – Kyoto Protocol – EU ETS and UN FCCC – JI and CDM – UK and California Regulations on Carbon Dioxide • Implementation – Flexible fuel, hybrid and electric cars – Efficiency projects – CO2 sequestration and Reuse • Challenges – Policy disagreements - US, China and India – Technology uncertainty Carbon RecyclingInternational 4
  5. 5. Making Fuel by Recycling Carbon Stranded Energy CO2 Patented Liquid Fuels • Renewable Methanol Water Reuse of Carbon Dioxide from Industrial Emissions as Feedstock for Renewable Fuels Carbon RecyclingInternational 5
  6. 6. Energy in Iceland Energy Consumption in Iceland by source – in GWe (2006) Source: statice.is, Ministry of energy 4/14/2010 Carbon RecyclingInternational Carbon Recycling International 6
  7. 7. CO2 in Iceland Industrial Processes consists of: • Aluminum (3) • Ferrosilicon (1) • Cement (1) Iceland CO2 emissions by sector, 2007 Carbon Recycling International Carbon RecyclingInternational 7
  8. 8. CO2 to Fuel Process Five building blocks : 1. H2 production 2. CO2 capture and purification 3. Syngas compression 4. Methanol synthesis 5. Methanol distillation Carbon RecyclingInternational 8
  9. 9. A Clean Fuel Less Fossil Energy In, Less CO2 Out, Same Distance Out 164 g 95 octane gasoline CO2 2.14 1 km MJ Vehicles 148 g CO2 95 octane RM10 1.9 MJ 1 km Vehicles Sources: • Well to Wheel Analysis of future automotive fuels and power trains in the European Context, EC JRC, EUCAR, CONCAWE (2007) • CRI – Well to Wheels report (2009) Carbon RecyclingInternational
  10. 10. Corporate History Proof of Process Incorporation 2006 Pilot Scale Plant 2007 Emissions To Liquids 1st Generation Patent Pre-Feasibility studies for large scale plants Seed financing Environmental permits Power Purchase Contract Enginering Company Partnership Basic Design 2008 Business model validation 2009 Site permits Oil of Iceland Fuel Off-take Contract 2010 Grant - Iceland Research Council Emissions to Liquids 2nd Generation Patent Private Placement for Industrial Scale Plant Construction of Industrial Ground Break for Industrial Scale Plant Scale Plant Carbon RecyclingInternational 10
