Transcript of "I Love CO2 - Turning CO2 into Energy v1.0"

  1. 1. I LOVE CO2 Turning CO2 into Energy For GE Ecomagination Challenge 2010 Hilman Wirahadisaputra [email_address] +62 811 969 989
  2. 2. Needs for Energy <ul><li>Our perpetual search for bulk source of energy and a new form of renewable energy </li></ul><ul><li>How to ease the process of attaining this raw energy </li></ul><ul><li>How to achieve efficiency of power usage in our homes/buildings </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Idea <ul><li>Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as the renewable energy source </li></ul><ul><li>EcoCubicle: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CO2 Absorber (portable) on desk </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Presence-triggered power flow </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(power invoked by presence of individual) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CO2 Capture, Storage & Controller (CO2CSC) </li></ul><ul><li>CO2 Energy Converter (CO2EC) </li></ul><ul><li>Integration with the Power Grid </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why CO2 for Energy? <ul><li>We have many sources of CO2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>From natural sources: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Animal, plant and human respiration </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Carbon cycle </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Volcanic eruption </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By-product of man-made activities: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fossil fuel combustion from electricity generation, industrial, residential and commercial, transportation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Industrial by-products </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Deforestation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Carbon sequestration [1] </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Why CO2 for Energy? <ul><li>CO2 is a proven energy source </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Look at Photosynthesis: 6CO2 + 6H2O -- (light) --> C6H12O6 + 6O2 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(carbon dioxide + water + light, producing sugar + oxygen) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy captured by photosynthesis approx. 100 terawatts = 6 times power consumption of human civilization [2] </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CO2 is everywhere - in the air/atmosphere, ocean, ground </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of CO2 is readily available now: 3,000 gigatonnes in atmosphere, 150,000 gigatonnes </li></ul><ul><li>in ocean + 27 billion tonnes emissions [3] </li></ul>
  6. 7. Functions of each component in this idea <ul><li>CO2: the energy source </li></ul><ul><li>EcoCubicle: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Catch CO2 exhaled from individual sitting in his cubicle - via CO2 Absorber (portable) on his desk </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Transmit absorbed CO2 to CO2CSC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Receive back CO2 processed energy allocated from CO2CSC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When this person leaves his cubicle, some equipments in his cubicle will be switched off or hibernated automatically (“presence-triggered power flow”) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CO2 Capture, Storage & Controller (CO2CSC): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Capture CO2 from external CO2 sources (plant, industrial, power station, sequestration, transportation, ocean) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Send captured CO2 to CO2 Energy Converter - to be processed into a ready-for-use energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Receive back CO2 processed energy and stored it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Channel power obtained from the CO2 Absorber back to their original EcoCubicle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Distribute stored power from external CO2 sources - to other power points in the building </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manage overall performance of CO2 intake, storage and its scalability-capacity </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CO2 Energy Converter (CO2EC): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Process captured CO2 into a ready-for-use energy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CO2CSC integration with the Power Grid: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Exchange information on operating status, performance and needs with the Power Grid </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Control volume of power exchanged with the Power Grid </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Control load/demand balancing with the Power Grid </li></ul></ul>
  7. 8. Key Benefits of this idea <ul><li>CO2 brings a substantial amount [3] of uncultivated energy source </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bonus: CO2 emission is a waste, now becomes an alternative energy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Many ways and places to capture CO2, examples of installation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Alongside office buildings in downtown, around perimeter of parking garages and lots, installed together with BTS towers especially in urban areas </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Efficiency of power usage: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>On-demand power (presence-triggered) in EcoCubicle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power balancing and sharing with the Power Grid [4] </li></ul></ul>
  8. 9. References <ul><li>“ Carbon Dioxide| Climate Change - Greenhouse Gas Emissions | U.S. EPA”. http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/emissions/co2.html </li></ul><ul><li>“ Photosynthesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosynthesis </li></ul><ul><li>“ Carbon dioxide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_dioxide </li></ul><ul><li>“ Smart grid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_grid </li></ul>
  9. 10. About Me <ul><li>“ My hope is this idea will make a positive impact to our energy availability and the quality of air we breath”. </li></ul><ul><li>Hilman is a project management and information technology consulting professional , specializing in process reengineering, systems selection and implementation, software development and systems integration </li></ul><ul><li>Hilman holds degrees and professional certification s in </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Project Management Professional (PMP): Project Management Institute, Pennsylvania, USA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MBA: Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bachelor of Science Computer Information Systems and International Studies: Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, USA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Certificate in Conflict Resolution Specialization in Negotiation: Justice Institute of British Columbia, New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Hilman was born in Indonesia while educated and worked in United States, Canada and a number of countries in South East Asia.
