  1. 1. Elementa Group<br />Introduction – 2010<br />CONFIDENTIAL - This information is shared for discussion purposes only <br />
  2. 2. Elementa Group - Overview<br />Patented Technology for Sustainable Energy Solutions<br />The World Faces 2 Major Problems<br /><ul><li>Elementa is a technology company with a solution for two of the world’s most pressing environmental problems:
  3. 3. Eliminating landfills
  4. 4. Providing a variety of clean energy options</li></ul>Elementa Has Best-in-Class Technology<br /><ul><li>Elementa’s process is based on Steam Reformation (SR)</li></ul> – a non-incineration, thermal technology:<br /><ul><li>New technology applied to a well-known chemistry
  5. 5. Small environmental footprint
  6. 6. Modular and scalable
  7. 7. Robust, tested, off-the-shelf systems & equipment
  8. 8. Unparalleled energy and economic efficiency
  9. 9. The highest GHG reduction rate per MWe</li></li></ul><li>Elementa Group – Overview Continued<br />Patented Technology for Sustainable Energy Solutions<br />Elementa is a Company Positioning for Rapid Growth<br /><ul><li>Elementa has:
  10. 10. Proprietary processes with IP ownership
  11. 11. Demonstrated experience – and success
  12. 12. In-house business and technology expertise – 25 employees and growing
  13. 13. Global client and partner relationships, with a rapidly growing project pipeline </li></li></ul><li>Sustainability<br />Patented Technology for Sustainable Energy Solutions<br />Elementa Waste Conversion<br /><ul><li>Breaks down waste through the application of indirect heat </li></ul> (no incineration),the absence of oxygen and the proper balance of chemistry: C + H2O = CO + H2<br /><ul><li>Can accept various types of carbon based feedstock : paper, wood, green wastes, plastic, textiles – MSW, sewage sludge, medical waste – Elementa is currently focused on the MSW and industrial based markets
  14. 14. Requires only minimal preparation of waste
  15. 15. Exceedingly low air emissions (well below stringent international standards)
  16. 16. Self-sustaining closed-loop system
  17. 17. Significantly reduces the need for landfilling – therefore no odour issues, air emissions (methane), leachate, improper land use, and waste of valuable resources</li></li></ul><li>Sustainability<br />Patented Technology for Sustainable Energy Solutions<br />Elementa Power Generation<br /><ul><li>Offsets energy produced from fossil fuels
  18. 18. Sustainably reduces GHG emissions
  19. 19. High conversion efficiency
  20. 20. Steady, reliable based power output
  21. 21. Located close to the load centres</li></li></ul><li>Proven Concept<br />Our challenge: Build on the Past by Optimizing the Future<br />Elementa’s technology uses rotary kilns, which are the same as those used in ‘pyrolysis’ (a similar process but using different chemistry and temperature). Pyrolysis plants with rotary kilns have been successfully processing MSW in Germany for over 20 years. <br /><ul><li>ConTherm Plant in Hamm, Germany
  22. 22. Operational in 2001
  23. 23. Operated in combination with Westfalen coal-fired plant
  24. 24. Capacity of 100,000 tonnes/yr
  25. 25. MSW Pyrolysis Plant in Burgau, Germany
  26. 26. Operational in 1984
  27. 27. Capacity of 35,000 tonnes/year</li></li></ul><li>Technology Demonstrator<br />Sault Ste. Marie<br /><ul><li>Pilot Demonstration Site in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
  28. 28. Operating since the fall of 2007
  29. 29. Capacity of 3 tonnes/day (increasing to 7 tonne/day)
  30. 30. Received Ministry of Environment approvals for Air and Waste (first in Ontario)</li></li></ul><li>Proof of Concept<br />Virtual Plant Tour<br />Pre-Processing<br />Output<br />SR Process<br />Syngas cleaned in wet scrubber<br />Unsorted MSW<br />Processed uniform feed<br />Syngas cleanup using HEPA and active carbon <br />Shred MSW in shredder<br />SR reaction occurs in heated rotary kiln<br />Recover metals with ferromagnetic separator<br />Inert residue non-hazardous<br />
  31. 31. Waste to Energy (WTE)<br />Technology Comparison<br />Notes: <br />1 Allsopp, Costner and Johnston (2001). Incineration and Human Health. Greenpeace Research Laboratories.<br />2 Noriyuki, Toshimi, Hiroyuki, Yoshiyuki, Yasuaki and Mazumi, (2000). Operation Report of 220 ton/day Pyrolysis Gasification and Melting System for Municipal Solid Waste. Yame Seibu Clean Center-Mitsui Recycling 21.<br />3 Plasco Energy Group (2008). Presentation to the Environmental Protection Committee of Port Moody.<br />4 Lehder Environmental Services Ltd. (2008). Draft Effluent and Emission Calculations. Note: Elementa’s Dioxin and Furan emissions are approximately 1/35 and 1/41 (respectively) of the Ontario and EU Dioxin/Furan emission limits of 0.08 ng/m3 and 0.092 ng/m3 (respectively) and 1/4000 of California’s limit of 9 ng/m3.<br />
  32. 32. Air Emissions<br />Actual Results<br />
  33. 33. Elementa<br />Summary Highlights<br />Addressing Environmental Concerns<br /><ul><li>Strong demand for renewable power generation
  34. 34. Reduces GHG emissions
  35. 35. Rising MSW disposal problem</li></ul>Experienced Team<br /><ul><li>Management experienced in MSW management, Energy and Technology Development
  36. 36. Technical advisory board
  37. 37. World-class consultants and advisors</li></li></ul><li>Elementa<br />Summary Highlights<br />Proprietary Technology<br /><ul><li>Patent pending Method for Steam Reformation of Carbonaceous Material
