PowerCan® 200 + “The Poop Scoop In The Loop”

Rosh Ha’ayn 2 July, 2012

Solid wastes cause congestion in the Municipal sewage its the end of the life cycle for some systems; but small scale gasification systems like the PowerCan® 200 lend a helping hand. Solid wastes can be extracted in line upstream and at a local level. “This significantly reduces the impact on the water treatments system at the end of the line” says SOLIDEA’s Steve Walker “A containerized system is unobtrusive taking up no more space than a few parking places, it processes the extracted solid waste or sludge”.

The PowerCan® 200 system produces a bio-waste pellets in line. The pellets are then fed into the  PowerCan® 200 CHP unit to generate energy. CHP produces heat which is used for the sludge drying process. The electricity generated keeps the whole pellet production process operational 24 hours per day with most of the electrical energy produced by the CHP is sold to the local power grid as  renewable energy. SOLIDEA has developed a truly sustainable value added human waste to energy [H-WtE] system with the PowerCan® 200.  .

At SOLIDEA Group we are asking our real estate development clients not to forget them in their projects” says SOLIDEA’s Steve Walker. “The good old fashioned waste disposal unit is really making a come back in WE [Waste Etiquette] and developments which promote such innovation are cutting edge despite old hat technology”.

Foodwaste or organic waste accounts for 15-20% of all household garbage in Europe and the Middle East, garbage sorting and recycling at home increases the biological quantity and the potential for Methane. That’s really bad news because it is this content that causes Methane in the landfill site and its dirty garbage that makes the garbage sorting business the mess that is today. Continue reading
