PowerCan 200 takes 4th place in National GEKON Competition

Gas Flare 1SOLIDEA, sp. z o.o. PowerCan200 Team has won a major national award for its environmental innovation. More than 400 candidates from some of Poland’s largest power and engineering companies competed to fund development of their new technologies under GEKON financial sponsorship, with full Polish government support.  Good news for PowerCan clients

The production of the new PowerCan starts immediately

PowerCan200 was placed 4th in the GEKON Program and one of the 24 companies of 400 professional applicants who will receive sponsorship (by the National Center for Research and Development, NCBiR, and the National Fund for Environmental Protection, NFOS).

The PowerCan200 converts wood chip and forest waste into synthesis gas. The PowerCan powers a stationary MAN Gas Engine and Combined Heat and Power unit. Since PowerCan200 can produce energy locally on or off grid and given recent events in Ukraine it can yet demonstrate to be well timed and hugely successful in this region. Continue reading

Introducing The PowerCan®200 All Organic Hydrogen Battery

Warsaw 28 February 2014

Organic Battery 2You could be forgiven for thinking that the Organic Hydrogen Battery here on the left is a glass plant pot filled with wood-chips because that’s exactly what it is. With an Energy Industry desperate to find effective renewable means to store and distribute energy the SOLIDEA Group energy team has been focusing on some low hanging fruits of its own invention. The PowerCan®200 produces hydrogen on demand from stored renewable wood-chip. It is an all organic low maintenance battery without heavy metal

Wood-Chip To Hydrogen Synthesis Gas [Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Syngas]

Converting wood-chip to hydrogen is a simple and well known process, a down draft gasifier such as the regular PowerCan®200 set up happily gasifies wood-chip in its reactor at temperatures over 500 degrees Celsius 24 hours a day. No smoke stack exists because nothing is burned there are then no gas emissions in the wood-chip to producer gas conversion process. Continue reading

PowerCan®200 Fracking With Poland’s Shale Play

London, 27 January 2014

Injecting fracking fluids

Some of Europe’s biggest energy stories for 2014 will be centred around Poland, the UK and the shale gas business. Poland’s Lewino wells are set to become the first commercial shale play in Europe. As the Levino site produced nearly 1700 m³ of shale gas a day a permanent horizontal well is already planned for July 2014, it will mark the start for Poland’s shale industry and potentially bringing a new prosperity for the region

Poland’s Potential New Prosperity

All energy costs energy and resources to produce. For the purpose of extracting shale gas hydrocarbons are spent at the wellhead for fracking from the consumption of Diesel fuels. One fracking operations typically consumes 5 million gallons of groundwater [approximately 19,000 Cubic Metres of Water]. As Diesel fuel consumption in Poland needs to be imported as much of one third of the wealth produced in Poland’s Shale Fields will be exported. As Poland is fast becoming a dry country the cost of groundwater used for fracking has long since become a major issue for the Polish Environmental lobby. Continue reading

PowerCan® 200 and the Weapons of Mass Destruction

Warsaw 16 October 2013

US Military Mustard Gas Cannisters Dumped at Sea 1963

Syria’s chemical weapons program which were first developed in the 1970’s finally took a turn in the right direction this month with agreement to eliminate more than 1000 tons of chemical weapons in Syria by mid 2014. But what will happen to these weapons? How will Syria’s weapons of mass destruction be safely and securely removed from Syria to facilities where they can be made extinct and with little impact to the environment?

“PowerCan® 200 Technology 3 “the Glidarc” is an important part of the DAVINCH technology which already made a significant contribution to the destruction of Red and Green Chemical Weapons of Mass Destruction. The Glidarc reforms gas breaking down complicated producer gases into the basic chemical building blocks”

Syrias Chemical Weapons

WMD’s or WoMD’s [Weapons of Mass Destruction] are biological or nuclear weapons which are consistent in their ability to kill many humans at one exchange, whilst simultaneously creating significant damage to the environment. According to French Intelligence more than 1000 tons of chemical WMD’s are stored inside Syria. Continue reading

Dr. Albin Czernichowski On GlidArc Technology

Our Professor Albin Czernichowski, is a key member of the PowerCan® 200 team the inventor of the Gliding Arc [GlidArc] PowerCan® 200 Gas Reform Process. Albin is Polish he is a Professor with the University of Orleans, France, Professor Albin presented two papers on different aspects of GlidArc at the 239th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in San Francisco.
