1 BEST Slow Pyrolysis Technology C4H4 Demonstration Plant Presented by Cordner Peacocke for Adriana Downie

2 BEST Pyrolysis Technology Renewable electrical and thermal energy Low grade, high ash feedstock capability Modular, scaleable design Value added solid product with developing market

3 Pilot Production El Toro ~ 40kg/hr dry biomass Daisy ~ 10kg batch dry biomass One in Australia, one in the USADesigned and Built in Australia – Shipped to USA Operated from Dec July 2006

4 C4H4 ~ 300kg/hour continuous biomass (dry basis) Demonstration Plant Engine Scrubber Drier Gasifier Kiln

5 C4H4 Process Flow Diagram 25% Syngas to Kiln Burner 300 kg/hr Feed 0.6 MW PE 160 kW Electrical 75 kg/hr char

6 C4H4 ~ 300kg/hour continuous biomass (dry basis) BEST Demonstration Plant

7 Engine and generator running on Syngas BEST Demonstration Plant

8 Data Collection Engine Control Panel 40 Thermocouples Syngas Analysers Data Loggers

9 Biomass Feedstock A complete range of biomass feedstocks have been evaluated Over 150 hours C4H4 runtime in total Feedlot Manure Poultry Litter Paper Sludge Wood Waste Rice Hulls Corn Trash Cotton Trash Woody weeds Green Waste

10 C4H4 Gas Analysis Gas analysis with GC (Gas Chromatograph) after gas clean-up Greenwaste feed Gas CV approximately 7 MJ/kg [range 6-12 MJ/nm 3 ] Gasifier gas approximately 3-4 MJ/kg depending on feed Clean gas suitable for use in engines or boilers Minimal ‘’tar’’ < 250 mg/m 3 from hot gas filter prior to scrubbing Renewable source of energy

11 Char Analysis Char yield between 27 and 50% of feed (dry) Activation to give high surface areas – up to 800 m2/g Sampling possible directly from kiln or char activator 50% Carbon from biomass remains in char – sequestration potential Greenwaste Char Analysis Chicken Litter Char

12 Char as a Soil Amendment Collaborative Char research with NSW Department of Agriculture and The University of New South Wales. Soil structure (tensile strength) Cation exchange capacity Water holding capacity Soil permeability Nutrient retention Enhance soil carbon Liming value Available nutrient content (NPK) Reduced soil greenhouse gas release

13 Agricultural Trials

14 Commercial Scale-Up 4000kg per hour of continuous biomass (dry basis)

15 Fully Integrated 4 tph Commercial Unit 5 MWe

16 BioEnergy Park – Wisconsin 2 tonne/hr modular unit Dairy Manure and bedding as Feedstock Outputs: Energy and Char Waste Management Driven Integrated Pelleting press unit Final Design Phase Australian Paper Mill - Maryvale 4 x 4 tonne/hr modular units Paper Sludge and wood chips as feedstock Outputs: Char Waste Management Driven Final Feasibility Stage Projects on the Horizon

17 IAI Conference 2007 International Agrichar Initiative (IAI) Conference in Terrigal, NSW, Australia April 30 th – May 2 nd, 2007 We will be running a C4H4 demonstration day Go to: For further information See you there
