1 © WTEC 2010 Welcome

2 © WTEC 2010 In keeping with integrated community sustainability strategies and plans it is WTECs goal to provide a logical, cost effective and environmentally sound, long-term solution for : The safe destruction of biomass & other waste. Provide valuable renewable thermal & electrical energy. Provide economic opportunities. Provide a safe & clean environment for generations to come. CGS Rationale

3 © WTEC 2010 Fully integrated waste to energy plan OEM supply model Deployment of leading edge, environmentally sound, proven technology CGS Provide ongoing long-term Operations & Maintenance support. Deliverables

4 © WTEC 2010 Convert waste wood and biomass into sustainable opportunity. Provide improved health & welfare. Safe/clean environment for future generations. Demonstrate Social & Environmental Leadership Reduce Waste Hauling Pollution & Costs Outcomes

5 © WTEC 2010 Continuous Gasifier System (CGS) Technology Overview

6 © WTEC 2010 Continuous feed Single or double reaction chamber Two-staged Air-starved Thermal Gasifier Continuous Gasifier System (CGS)

7 © WTEC 2010 Biomass, waste wood, sawdust & other fairly consistent solid wastes are fed continuously into the hearth area of a vertical reaction chamber. Innovative hearth design requires no moving grate or fluidized bed. Hot syngas produced in the air-starved zone of the lower chamber is fully oxidized in the excess-air zone of the upper chamber. Residence time of flue gas at design temperature 5 sec. Optional second reaction chamber increases residence time further and slows gas to allow particulate settling. Heat recovery, power generation, and emissions controls are by standard technologies. Concept

8 © WTEC 2010 Most appropriate for waste types of relatively consistent size and calorific value such as: Solid waste of relatively consistent content Wood waste Agricultural residues Waste Feedstock Types

9 © WTEC 2010 COR High River, 10 years of operationCOR Thora, one of three on site Continuous Operation

10 © WTEC 2010 Air-Starved Gasification Zone: Automatic feed using augers or rams provides continuous operation. Low-temperature gasification in V-shaped hearth (left) at bottom of first reaction tower. Hot syngas released up to secondary oxidation zone in same tower. Easy ash removal by ram during operation. Excess-Air Oxidation Zone: Takes place in upper zone of first reaction tower. Control of Time / Temperature / Turbulence. Second tower (at left) can be added to increase residence time of gases at design temperature and slow gases to allow particulate settling. Unified 2-Stage Gasification

11 © WTEC 2010 The three-step, V-shaped hearth itself has no moving parts and so avoids the frequent breakdowns and high maintenance costs that occur with the moving metal grates and fluidized beds found in mass burn incinerators. = Excellent reliability & reduces costs for capital equipment, operations, maintenance & repairs. = Holding the ash longer for gasification zone leaves as little bottom ash behind as possible. COR during construction Unified 2-Stage Gasification

12 © WTEC 2010 Combustion of hot syngas takes place in upper zone of chamber. Residence time of gases at design temperature is 5 sec, which is 3 sec more than EPA requires. Generates heat for conversion to steam and / or electricity. Meets all US & EU EPA emissions standards after scrubbing. COR High River, 10 years of operation in Northern Canada Secondary Combustion Chamber

13 © WTEC 2010 Sterile & Non-toxic. Virtually no carbon. No slag or clinkers. Easily separated from glass & metals for recycling. Passes EPAs Toxicity Characteristics Leaching Procedure (TCLP) test. Bottom ash can be sold as aggregate for concrete or for asphalt road surfacing. Landfilling not required. Bottom Ash

15 © WTEC 2010 Daily capacity of 1000 tonnes can be achieved with two CGS process trains of 500 tons each. Larger capacities can be achieved by increasing the capacities of the individual CGS process trains and / or by adding more process trains. Typical layout for Energy Generation

20 © WTEC 2010 Touch-Screen Control Panel CGS have automatic controls with manual override that operators can monitor or adjust using the simple touch- screen control panel.

21 © WTEC 2010 Inherently low COR emissions can be reduced further by treatment of flue gases using Best Available Technology: View of stack with facility operating at full capacity. Flue gas retention time 2 sec at temps up to 1300° C as required. Sodium bicarbonate to neutralize acids. Activated carbon to remove trace dioxins, furans & heavy metals. Flue gas recirculation & selective non- catalytic reduction (SNCR) to control NO x. Filter baghouse to collect scrubber consumables & residual fly ash. Advance Flue Gas Treatment

30 © WTEC 2010 Large-capacity, continuous-feed, two-stage thermal gasification in single or double vertical reaction chambers for consistent wastes such as biomass and household waste. Simple, robust design with very few moving parts. Innovative hearth design eliminates complicated moving grates and fluidized beds found in mass burn incinerators. Sophisticated controls for air, waste feed, and auxiliary fuel first developed for the BOS are now available on CGS. Lower capital, labour, and other operating costs than other conversion technologies. Meets or exceeds CDN, EU and US emissions standards with appropriate control equipment. Why CGS ?
