M F A Presentation 12/06

  1. 1. (Prosopis L.) (Prosopis – laevigata) (Prosopis – pubescens)(Prosopis – glandulosa) Mesquite: Is a Non-Native, Invasive Plant Is a high consumer of water High BTU content as an efficient fuel source There are Federal/ State Eradication Programs in Place
  2. 2. Sow: Phase I: Accumulated wood as on 6/26/09: Total Counties: 25 Total Acreage: 560,642 Total Tonnage: 11,212,840 Total Acreage in 15 Counties: 9,000,000 Total Acreage of Mesquite in Texas 53,000,0000
  3. 3. Sow: Phase II: In-Process acreage as on 6/26/09: Total Counties: 46 Total Acreage: 736,726 Total Tonnage: 14,734,520
  4. 4. Sow: Phase III: Harvestable Biomass Item 1: Replanting Program • After harvesting Mesquite the ranchers have the options below: - Plant a sustainable crop to grow on marginal crop land - 100 acre R&D test plot in Hamlin to show and test crops Harvestable Plant Comment Land usage Fast growing, bio mass eligible, Switch Grass Ranch Land or Crop Land suitable to west Texas Seven years to mature, high yield Recreation Land or Tree Poplar for bio fuel, serves as wind break Farming Land 4 to 5 years maturity, Harvestable Jatropha annually, high oil content, suitable Crop Land or Tree Farming for poor soil Fast Growing, Suitable for West Hybrid Tree Tree Farming or Ranch Land Texas, Harvestable 6 to 8 years
  5. 5. Sow:
  6. 6. Biomass Conversion: Tons MWs Phase I Contracted Tonnage: 11,212,840 70 Phase II In-Process Tonnage: 14,734,520 85 Total: 25,947,360 155 Note: • Represents a 20 year fuel supply • No regeneration or replanting program assumed • No substitute fuel sources or use of other agricultural or urban waste assumed
  7. 7. M. F. & A. Harvesting
  8. 8. M. F. & A. Harvesting
  9. 9. Why Generate from Timber? • Dependability • Measurable Reserves • Renewable • Low or no measurable sulfur • Low percentage of ASH – Less Than 2%
  10. 10. Why Generate from Timber? Proven Technology • Over 120 successful installations by selected manufacturer • Other suppliers with similar proven technology • Installations include electricity generating facilities, industrial users, schools and hospitals
  11. 11. Harvest:
  12. 12. Harvest: Gasifier Boiler
  13. 13. M. F. & A. Accomplishments To Date: • Paid for major components of 1st 3 Mega Watt Module • Received Air, Construction, & Operating Permit TECQ • Permit # 81124 for 8 Mega Watt Plant • Received Interconnection Agreement for 8 Mega Watt Plant • Harvested land to prove costing and efficiency in supplying plant with feed stock • Registered with the PUC as a Renewable Energy supplier • Developed 5 potential new projects sites • Worked with Texas Utilities and QSE on project feasibility • Worked with Renewable Energy Associations and Texas • Legislature to make a Biomass Friendly Economy in The State of Texas
  14. 14. M. F. & A. / Austin Energy Lower Colorado River Authority Benefits of Initial Power Agreement: • Stable Fuel Supply (Minimum 20 years) • Texas Based • Test Bed for Applications • Base Load / Fossil Fuel Replacement • Distributed Energy • Environmental Improvements (BACT) • Improvement in Hydrology • Scalability
  15. 15. Future Relationship for M. F. & A. Austin Energy LCRA • Sites closer to Austin Grid/LCRA Grid • Alternative Fuels - Juniper - Power line Tree Pruning - Municipal Wood/Solid Waste - Dedicated Biomass (Phase III) • Improvement in local Hydrology • Carbon Credits • Biofuels
  16. 16. “It’s called fire… It is a new way to recycle wood”
