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

Why Gasification Of Plastics Is Nonsense?

Wroclaw, 26 February 2014

Filament Plastic For 3D Printing

Even before the advent of the 3D printer and more than 30 years ago Poland had several plants which evaporated plastics and to ensure their reuse as fuel additives. Today as the first affordable 3D printers become readily available and set to change the way we manufacture to Cottage Industry, suddenly waste plastics have a surprisingly high potential value as “Filament” with the ability to remaining in the value chain being profitably recycled into something else.

Poland And The History of Soft Plastics For Fuel Recycling

Poland’s organic chemists have quite a history of creating breakthrough technology in the fuel, plasma and related sciences. Many synthetic fuels have been developed in Poland or through Polish innovation which originated in Poland. Polish scientists in the 1980’s demonstrated why landfill, burning and even gasification of plastics was nonsense. Continue reading

Energy & Data On The Move

IBM Data CentreBoth Energy Plants and Data Centres are on the move, trends and economic realities rapidly shape new emerging energy and data processing industries. The fact is energy production and data centre operations need to relocate or “disperse” their businesses and infrastructure to meet current demands and the demands of the foreseeable future.

“Energy producers and Data Centre operators face fresh new challenges, but new synergies are emerging – these are real game changers”.    

PowerCan® 200 is a modular small scale gasification plant; wood-chip, biomass or cellulose feedstock is automatically fed into a vessel which produces synthesis gas without emission. The synthesis gas [Syngas] is then burned in a CHP unit to produce 200kW of energy 24 hours a day. Unlike other renewable energy sources the PowerCan® 200 works in all weathers day and night and almost anywhere. Continue reading

Innovating The PowerCan® 200

Gassifier No.1

Small Gasification is a process which converts organic carbonaceous materials or biomass into carbon monoxidehydrogen and carbon dioxide. Generally gasification is reacted in a  controlled vacuum starved of oxygen and so that no combustion occurs.  At temperatures higher than 700°C, and without combustion in a controlled amount of oxygen syngas (from synthesis gas or synthetic gas) is created from the producer gas. The process is without a smoke stack and there are no emissions as the syngas conversion is produced in a vacuum. Syngas is an ideal fuel for CHP [Combined Heat and Power Units] derived from the gasification of renewable energy and a great way of reducing CO₂


The PowerCan® 200 2013-2016 Research and Development Program takes the PowerCan® 200 to the commercial mass production level,. PowerCan® 200 team will develop a global product an off the shelf energy solution with almost endless opportunities to make waste extinct locally, end landfill, reduce CO₂ and produce clean energy and one day even cleaner transport fuels.

Hypermarket ZNE? Thanks to EVE® Fossil Fuel Free!

Portland, Oregon, August 26, 2012

Supermarkets and Hypermarkets work on very low profit margins, as low as 3% of sales. Their business model, put simply, is to provide the retail customer the biggest choice and lowest market price all under one roof.

Over the last decade energy costs in retail have doubled and by 2013 the cost of energy for the ill prepared will be more than 2% of sales. The ultimate prize for energy cost saving in this industry is of course free energy generated onsite and from a sustainable and renewable green source. But so far it was either impossible or carried too higher CAPEX and to this day no top brand Zero Net Energy Supermarket or Hypermarket exists. Continue reading
