    11. 11. ANAEROBIC DIGESTION<br />Anaerobic digestion is a natural process where microorganisms break down organic waste materials (biomass) in the absence of oxygen. <br />Inputs:<br /> Agricultural Biomass (manure, crop waste, energy crops)<br /> Food Waste & FOG (fats, oils and grease)<br /> Municipal Waste (biosolids)<br />Products:<br /> Renewable Energy – Natural Gas, Electricity, Motor Vehicle Fuel (CNG)<br /> Animal Bedding, Peat Alternative, & Compost<br /> Concentrated fertilizer that can be removed from the watershed <br /> Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Cleaner Water, & Cleaner Air<br />4<br />© Copyright quasar energy group 2011<br />

    31. 31. Solutions: that Address the Problem<br />A<br />Alum Treatment: $$$$ - may temporarily diminish algae <br />Dredging: $$$$ - may temporarily diminish algae<br />Hauling Manure: $$$ - addresses the cause of the problem, but is an unaffordable perpetualexpense for the agricultural community. <br />Anaerobic digestion is a self-funding solution that addresses one of the problems – manure mismanagement. <br />pproaches that have been proposed react to the effect of the problem but do not provide a long term solution for the causeof the problem. <br />
    32. 32. 25<br />Nutrient Removal:<br />P<br />quasar is integrating nutrient removal technology into the anaerobic digestion process to:<br /><ul><li>Remove nitrogen and phosphorous from the system’s effluent
    33. 33. Concentrate these nutrients as a saleable fertilizer product that can be shipped out of the watershed
    34. 34. Reduce downstream nutrient loads
    35. 35. Maintain agricultural productivity</li></ul>Anaerobic digestion is the ONLY solution that is Self-Funding. <br />artnering with the region to address the phosphorous loading problem in the Grand Lake St. Mary's watershed.<br />© Copyright quasar energy group 2011<br />
    36. 36. Solutions: that pay for themselves<br />A<br />Anaerobic digesters address a problem while creating a new revenue stream for farms: <br />Revenue from –<br /> Renewable energy sales (energy & RECs)<br /> Tipping fees (from food processors)<br />Financial Savings – <br /> Solid byproduct can be used as animal bedding<br />With Grants –<br /> Simple Payback of 3 – 6 years<br />Without Grants –<br /> Simple Payback of 6 – 10 years<br />naerobic digesters are self-funding solutions with or without grants. <br />
    37. 37. Sizing a Project<br />W<br />quasar ecoFARMsystemscome in 3 standard sizes: F330, F550, F825. The daily through-put and energy generation of a system will vary based on the biomass recipe. <br />hich system size fits the project?<br />* Note: Actual values will vary regionally. Based on an assumption of $0.075 per kWh for electric and $10.00 per MMBtu for natural gas. <br />
    38. 38. Feasibility:<br />q<br /><ul><li>Identifying regional biomass
    39. 39. Conducting digestion flask and pilot scale digestion studies on said biomass
    40. 40. Estimating the energy value of key biomass
    41. 41. Developing a preliminary concept/design for the system
    42. 42. Developing a process description and process flow diagram
    43. 43. Determining a construction and commissioning schedule
    44. 44. Creating a site layout, review permitting requirements, etc.
    45. 45. Guaranteeing energy estimates and outputs
    46. 46. Accessing buildable land</li></ul>uasarperforms a Parameters and Feasibility Study (PFS) for every project. The PFS provides a detailed assessment of the project’s viability by addressing the goals & objectives outlined by the customer that typically include; <br />
