  • 1. Catalytic Pressure-less Depolymerization Biomass into Synthetic Diesel the so called II. Generation
  • 2. Alphasol Modular Energy Plc . General Establishment & Aims Representation Programs (Pillar)
  • 3.  
  • 4. CPD - Catalytic Pressure-less Depolymerization
    • converts synthetic and natural polymers and long chain hydrocarbons at temperatures between 270°C and 350°C to short-chain hydrocarbons (synthetic light oil / diesel) by adding (ion-exchanging 100 % crystalline and extreme active) y-catalysts.
    • Conversion only into CH2 chains and only then in molecule lengths that bind in a manner that separates unusable pollutants.
    • Result of 30 years of intensive scientific research and development the recognized German chemical plant and catalyst specialist Dr. Christian Koch reproducing the natural way of fossil oil production.
  • 5. Input … you could produce from
    • Biologically renewable raw materials (wood, vegetables, grains, etc.)
    • Municipal Waste
    • Energy plants
    • Plastics of all kinds (including PVC)
    • Rubber, including that from automobile tires
    • Waste oils, waxes and fats of all types (including PCBs oils)
    • Animal wastes (bone mill, fat, etc.)
    • Hospital waste materials
    • All refinery by-products (bitumen, tars, etc.)
    • Agricultural waste (sugar cane, bagasse, saw dust, etc.)
  • 6. … and this Diesel …
    • has even a better efficency equal to the V-Power quality of the diesel
    • very good quality
    • fulfills the EU-Norm 590.
    • That is the EU standard for diesel at gas station
    • is free from aroma and generates no particels of soot during combustion
    • The proportion of nitric oxides in the exhaust fumes is reduced.
    • as Diesel so called II. Generation
    • und then classified taxfree till 2015 in Europe
    • is enviromental friendly
    • because no Catalysator and other Chemicals are needed
  • 7.  
  • 8. Scheme of the Catalytic Low Pressure Depolymerization process
    • The material input as a solid or as a fluid cycle. The solid material input appears through an input snail as dry material with low humidity and a minimal particle size and the feedstock then mixed with a catalyst promoter, hydrated lime and carrier oil (after initial filling with oil in the procedure itself) and then the feedstock is heated in a manner that converts the organic material into fluids that are sent to a distillation column where the liquid fuels are distilled and then piped to storage tanks.
  • 9. Production of Synthetic Diesel
  • 10. Some example - Input
    • Result:
    • Synthetic diesel ca. 300L
    • Water – Rest humidity ca. 50 – 150L
    • Ashe ca. 20kg
    Mass balance: Input 1 ton of Celulose C 6 H 11 O 5 = 2,5 CO 2 + (CH 2 )n (3,5) + H (4)
  • 11. Pilot Plant in Addis Ababa
  • 12. Thank you for your attention
