ECO TROPIC is a complete, totally integrated, renewable energy solution for tropical resorts
With the this solution, resort owners becomes energy independent and takes full responsibility of the future for the local and global environment
The ECO TROPIC solution reduces the monthly energy costs of the resort, by up to 50%
ECO TROPIC drastically (>90%) reduces the environmental impact of the resort by fully utilizing all waste streams and reducing green house gas emissions
The solution can be refitted to existing resorts or fully integrated into new developments
ECO TROPIC is your future energy solution – Today!
Resort Challenges Increased energy costs for electricity, heating and transportation Growing environmental awareness among potential clients Uncertainty about future legislations and rules for environmental pollution
Algae feedstock complemented with other waste streams from the resort such as organic waste, sludge and biomass produces BioGas in a BioGas Reactor
The lion share of the BioGas is used to power a CHP (Combined Heat Power) generator, generating electricity, hot water and cool air
The remaining BioGas is cleaned and used as fuel for the resorts vehicle fleet; buses, trucks and excursion vehicles
Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from the generator is absorbed and fed back to the Algae BioReactor as “food” for the Algae, BioFertilizer from the BioGas production is used for nutrition
System completely integrated and operated from a centralized Command and Control Centre

Financial and Environmental Impact Total Investments Traditional Monthly Energy Costs Traditional EcoTropic EcoTropic Green House Gas Emissions Traditional With a marginally higher investment cost in an ECO TROPIC solution, the resort is able to reduce monthly energy costs by 20% to 50%, and radically reduce GHG emissions (+90%).
Implementation Project Plan Walkthrough Visit Energy Audit / Business Plan Energy Generation Energy Measurement Implementation Report Energy Reduction Report Walkthrough The Walkthrough phase is to gage the potential of the ECO*TROPICS solution for the resort. During this phase we will review the installation and the energy needs on an overview basis. The result is detailed in a report enabling the management to take a decision about how to go forward with the project. Energy Audit and BP The objective of the energy audit is to detail the requirements of the resort, we will make recommendations for how to reduce energy and how to produce it in the best way. The result is a detailed Business Plan which forms the basis for the total investment and implementation. Implementation Based upon the Business Plan the resort management and AUM comes to an agreement about the implementation about the ECO*Tropics solution tailored for the resort. AUM is responsible for delivering the results as promised in the Business Plan.
