  • Eco Carb Presentation

    1. 2. WOOD - HARD SHELLS (Cellulose, Lignum & Water) External Heating: Surface exposed to heat Wood Burning Process
    2. 3. WOOD - HARD SHELLS (Cellulose, Lignum & Water) Heat decomposes the chemical structure of wood and light pyrolysis products volatilize from the surface Wood Burning Process
    3. 4. WOOD - HARD SHELLS (Cellulose, Lignum & Water) <ul><li>Reactions: </li></ul><ul><li>Heat </li></ul><ul><li>More Reactions </li></ul><ul><li>More Heat </li></ul><ul><li>More Reactions </li></ul><ul><li>…… </li></ul><ul><li>Chain Reaction </li></ul>Wood Burning Process Combustion: Pyrolysis products react with oxygen External heating and combustion reactions : More heat on the surface PYROLYSIS GASES
    4. 5. WOOD - HARD SHELLS (Cellulose, Lignum & Water) cellulose combustion strongly endothermic Wood Burning Process : Very Inefficient and polluting “ tar” (levoglucosan) “ active” cellulose Flammable gases/ vapours <ul><li>carbon,CO2, H2O, CO - free radicals - carbonyl groups etc </li></ul>ca. 300C endothermic ca. 200C slightly endothermic endothermic endothermic
    5. 6. WHAT IS CHARCOAL <ul><li>Sold residue of carbon & low tar when wood is carbonized or pyrolysis </li></ul><ul><li>Half burnt wood in its original form </li></ul><ul><li>30% to 35% by weight of wood </li></ul>
    6. 7. CHARCOAL (CHAR) <ul><li>Oldest chemical process </li></ul><ul><li>Driver for bronze & iron age </li></ul><ul><li>Good source for energy (fuel) </li></ul><ul><li>Burns hotter & cleaner </li></ul><ul><li>Raw material or activated carbon (air & water purification) </li></ul><ul><li>Domestic BBQ fuel </li></ul>
    7. 8. HOW IS CHARCOAL MADE <ul><li>Pyrolysis (chemical degradation, carbonization) is the conversion of wood to disoriented carbon structure with low volatile content. </li></ul><ul><li>Charcoals made by burning wood slowly in a controlled environment in the absence of air </li></ul>
    8. 9. Pit method of charring coconut shells 3
    9. 10. Pit method of charring <ul><li>Using earth as a shield against O2 and insulating shells against excess loss of heat </li></ul><ul><li>Earth forms the necessary gas-tight insulating barrier behind which carbonization takes place with out leakage of air. </li></ul>
    10. 11. Pit method of charring
    11. 12. Drum method of charring
    12. 13. Pit method of charring <ul><li>Using earth as a shield against O2 and insulating shells against excess loss of heat </li></ul><ul><li>Earth forms the necessary gas-tight insulating barrier behind which carbonization takes place with out leakage of air. </li></ul>
    13. 14. Pyrolysis & Gasification <ul><li>Unique Filtrex Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Avoidance of Methane and CO2 emission that occurs in pit/drum charring process to make equivalent amount of char. </li></ul><ul><li>Scale up to 7 to 9 T/day per reactor </li></ul>
    14. 15. ACTIVATED COCONUT CARBON 120,000 T Activated Carbon 360,000 T Charred Shells
    15. 16. ACTIVATED COCONUT CARBON 1.1 Billion Kg of Shells 11 Billion Coconuts
    16. 17. ENVIRONMENTAL AFFECTS 650 MT VOC 360 MT Charred Shells
    17. 18. ENVIRONMENTAL AFFECTS 650 MT VOC 360 MT Charred Shells
    18. 19. ENVIRONMENTAL AFFECTS 650 MT VOC 360 MT Charred Shells
    19. 20. ENVIRONMENTAL AFFECTS 10 inch Blocks
    20. 21. V I S I O N Working with “like-minded” partners to eliminate the Global Green House emission caused by charring of coconut shells in current methods of charring.
    21. 22. M I S S I O N <ul><li>Increase the awareness of environment impact of using coconut shell char generated by pit method </li></ul><ul><li>Develop and implement business models to channel resources and technology with equitable partners in all countries producing coconut shell char in pit method </li></ul><ul><li>Improve the conditions of workers working in the char producing industry. Support local workers with higher earnings, education funding, health care and better quality of life. </li></ul>
    22. 23. Strategy <ul><li>Support all stake holders in their desire to meet their CDM commitments </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid proliferation of charring plants in India and ASEAN region in partnership with local char producers. </li></ul><ul><li>Install activation plants in areas that are economically feasible. </li></ul><ul><li>All partnership organizations to be totally committed to the welfare of the workers. </li></ul>
    23. 24. Green Carbon Certification Process GREEN CERTIFICATION & CER DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT
    24. 25. Green Carbon Certification Process <ul><li>Ecocarb : </li></ul><ul><li>Provides technology and resources </li></ul><ul><li>Comply with UN CDM approved protocol </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring/recording of VOC emission </li></ul><ul><li>Local employment and economical/health/education </li></ul><ul><li>Certified Char sold to activated plant and other users </li></ul>High Iodine Value Green Char High Performance Activated Green Carbon
    25. 26. Green Carbon Certification Process <ul><li>C Trade Responsibilities : </li></ul><ul><li>PIN and PDD for Kyoto Protocol Registration </li></ul><ul><li>Verification/Validation and Issuance of CER </li></ul><ul><li>US EPA certification for Green Carbon and Green Block </li></ul><ul><li>Transfer of CER credit to Green Carbon Users </li></ul>
    26. 27. Green Carbon Certification Process <ul><li>Benefits for Green Carbon Users </li></ul><ul><li>US EPA certification for Green Products </li></ul><ul><li>CER credits to meet CDM requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Certification for Participation in </li></ul>Emission Reduction Use of Renewable Resources Regional impact on economic/ health/social aspects
