The technology enables companies to utilise currently discarded combustible organic wastes for conversion to solid biofuel or into advanced fertiliser.
Low energy conversion (< 25 kWhrs/tonne) of wet organic wastes into dry (< 10% moisture) hard, water resistant pellets enables large swathes of presently ignored feedstock to become valuable fuel, a fertiliser or dry storable animal feed pellets.
The Fertipel and Enerpel technologies fit perfectly into realising the concept of the circular economy today, with multiple options for treating difficult wastes that are generally landfilled. Most of these waste streams can be converted at low cost into high energy fuels and high value fertilisers.
Many agricultural waste streams have highly valuable nutrient contents. By mixing with other waste streams such as animal manures, sewage sludge and animal processing wastes, idealised formula fertiliser pellets can be realised and matched to crop and soil type.
Many millions of tonnes of potential feedstock are wasted every year in Australasia due to the lack of a suitable technology package, which can go to work quickly, cost effectively and at a high rate of production to supplement or supplant fossil fuels and industrial non-organic fertilisers.
Many of the solid, liquid and contaminated waste streams that are globally problematic can be treated wholly or in part by our technology to realise value from a cost and convert a waste into a product.
Complex and contaminated wastes such as PFAS/PCB/microplastics, tyres, auto waste, non-recyclable plastics, paper, pulp waste wood, RDF (Refuse derived fuel) and fly ash can all be tackled with our technology and our enabling technology will allow many issues in the circular economy to be solved.
The ability of Enerpel tm technology to create a drop-in coal replacement fuel in power stations has substantial potential as an enabling technology to supplement and gradually replace coal as a fuel, while maintaining the massive investment in power generation infrastructure. The potential to also efficiently dispose of problematic wastes such as PFAS family chemicals through this technology is a huge bonus.
