waste - without emissions...
and deliverable carbon capture
One Technology - Three Solutions
for a Brighter Future
easyPower’s Pure Pyrolysis technology captures carbon, whilst efficiently creating large quantities of predictable baseload energy and eradicating residual waste.
In simple terms this is not entirely dissimilar to the natural process of decay and decomposition that Planet Earth will carry out on her own, given a hundred million years or so, where organic matter is reduced to coal, oil and gas. The entire process is natural chemistry and it only works if we do not burn.
One technology, three solutions
for a brighter future
The key to carbon capture from the easyPower process is our production of carbon char. This is carbon capture in action. A stable, solid material with multiple uses. No requirement for complex systems of gas capture or the challenge of finding a long-term storage solution.
At the end of every day, an EPi module will have produced around 20 tonnes of carbon rich char. On average, for every tonne of material input we will capture approximately 760 kg of CO2 in our carbon char.
This means that a typical 6 module installation, will capture some 35,000 tonnes of CO2 each and every year.
Renewable / Low Carbon Energy
We are confident that EPi has the most efficient technology for extracting the maximum amount of energy from both residual waste streams and sustainably produced biomass. Our process will produce between 5 and 10 times more energy than the energy it consumes; and dependent upon feed material, a typical 6 module installation can produce up to 9 MW/hr of electrical energy and 9-12 MW/hr thermal.
An average sized installation could provide enough renewable energy to supply the total electrical needs of over 23,000 UK homes. In terms of potential energy recovery per kg of material processed, we are not aware of any other technology that can come close.
We believe that easyPower has the “Best Available Technology” for dealing with any residual and unavoidable waste streams. It extracts the most energy and captures high levels of carbon thereby making this a true carbon negative methodology for all but the highest fossil intensity waste streams.
It can deal easily with a very wide range of wastes with simple, undemanding pre-treatment processes. The technology is modular and scalable; and can therefore be located close to existing material sources, helping to reduce or remove the impacts of secondary transport movements. The core process itself does not produce odours and the noise levels are low. There are no tall chimneys or flues for emissions.
