  1. 1. CONFIDENTIAL Solena Group Sylvain Motycka, MS, MEng Director, Technology USAID – USEA WORKSHOP: RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW – BIOENERGY SYSTEMS September 01st, 2009 1 CONFIDENTIAL
  2. 2. CONFIDENTIAL Summary 1. Solena Technology 2. Solena BioEnergy Platform 1. Bio Power plants 2. Bio Jet Fuel plants 3. Solena CO2 Sequestration Program 2
  3. 3. CONFIDENTIAL Solena Group 1. Technology 3 CONFIDENTIAL
  4. 4. CONFIDENTIAL 1 Energy Contained in Biomass Fuels • Biomass / Organic residues are composed of hydrocarbons, and as such, contain energy. • Biomass fuels are characterized by their proximate and ultimate analyses, as well as their heating content (HHV & LHV): • Proximate: Moisture, Volatile (given at 960 ° Fixed-Carbon, and Inert C), • Ultimate: C, H, O, N, S, Cl • HHV & LHV = f (C, H, O, N, S, Inert) 1 kg of biomass = 4000 kcal = 16.8 MJ 1 tonne per hour = approx. 5 MW 4
  5. 5. CONFIDENTIAL 1 Thermal Conversion Technologies Stoichiometric Ratio Low Efficiency CO2 + H2O High Emissions Incineration Flue gas Combustion Thermal energy High efficiency Low emissions CO + H2 Gasification Thermal Plasma Gasification Gasification Syngas Thermal + Chemical energies Externally-heated Pyrolysis pyrolysis Plasma Pyrolysis Low Efficiency Low Emissions External Flame Plasma Temp Ash/solid slag Molten slag 5
  6. 6. CONFIDENTIAL 1 Thermal Conversion Technologies End-Product By Product Emissions Incineration / Hot flue gas Bottom Ashes Particulates, NOx, Boiler (500° C) Fly Ashes SOx, dioxins / furans Ext. heated Oil ultimately Char and Syngas Particles Pyrolysis upgraded into that contains soot Low emissions diesel / gasoline and tar Plasma Pyrolysis Oil ultimately Char and Syngas Particles (better efficiency than upgraded into that contains soot Low emissions ext. heated pyrolysis) diesel / gasoline and tar Solena Plasma Syngas Fuel Inert Slag Low emissions Gasification (1100 ° to C) produce electricity, biofuel, etc. 6
  7. 7. CONFIDENTIAL 1 Innovative Patented Technology Solena Plasma Technology • Plasma technology: 5,000 °C • O2 deprived environment: No combustion • Residence time in plenum > 2 seconds • Solena’s process is fuel flexible. • I&C to control operations and reach steady state • Independent variables to control the Gasification process. • Conclusion: Solena BioSynGas characteristics: • HHV = 300 BTU/scf (1/3rd Nat Gas) • High CO & H2 concentration (> 90% vol.) • Absence of SOx, NOx, CxHy, dioxins, furans 7
  8. 8. CONFIDENTIAL 1 Innovative Patented Technology Solena has developed and patented a thermal gasification technology • Solena’s plasma gasification vitrification (SPGV) technology is designed to be a cost effective and technically efficient atmospheric thermal gasification process • Converts any biomass into a clean, high calorific BioSynGas • Inorganic compounds are melted into an inert, non-toxic vitrified slag • Average production of 2,000 kWh of electricity produced per ton of biomass processed(1) (2) • Developed by Solena team members over 10+ year period (1) Source: Solena; assumes mixed (RDF, wood waste and forestry) 8 feedstock containing 4,000 kcal/ kilo (2) Compared to 500 kWh per ton of biomass by means of traditional incineration
