Electricity/Heating/Cooling for Industrial Needs
With the help of biomass and other type of waste, our power generators are capable in generating them into electricity, cooling, heating, and water distillation system, according to needs. ENTRADE’s Micro-grid Technology, including mobile, self-sustainable power plant, solar systems, and energy storage batteries could offer technological and structural solutions to some of the major energy problems while enabling growth and transformation of local communities and small businesses. Entrade’s power plants are designed to fit in a standard container, for a more efficient transportation and distribution system, bringing affordable energy to people in need, everywhere around the world.
As proven by our study cases, ENTRADE technologies’ ability to convert biomass into electrical and thermal energy, could power up a whole building and also run industrial machines. Our power generators do not produce carbon emission during its conversion.
Two of our most mentioned study cases are:
1. The power support of Abukuma Spa & Resort in Japan.
Fujita Construction operates Spa Resort Abukuma, located in Fukushima Prefecture. The resort has been running our E3 technology since 2017, and with commercial success and growing demand, in 2018 added an Entrade E4 technology. Electricity from the E3 covers electricity demand of the resort, while electricity from the E4 send supplies to the grid obtaining a FIT of 40 yen/kWh. The machines also produce thermal energy that are being used to heat water for hot baths, floor heating in winter, and room cooling in summer by means of an absorption chiller.
2. Energy generation and management for Greenyard Corporation.
Greenyard is a global market leader of fresh, frozen and prepared fruit & vegetables, flowers, plants and growing media. Greenyard has had collectively generate at least 11.2 GWh electricity and 26.6 GWh thermal per year, assumes 80% uptime. The thermal energy that our generator produced are used to pre-heat water for steam process, heat the buildings, as well as absorption chiller creating cool water for washing, chopping, and peeling of fruits & vegetables. The electricity produced are used to power the building and the use of processing equipment. Report counted that there’s around 40% expected reduction in total energy cost, doubling their profit margin.
First of all, what is bio-energy?
In its most narrow sense it is a synonym to bio-fuel, which is fuel derived from biological sources. In its broader sense it includes biomass, the biological material used as a bio-fuel, as well as the social, economic, scientific and technical fields associated with using biological sources for energy. Extracting the explanation from Wikipedia, Biomass is any organic material which has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy. As a fuel it may include wood, wood waste, straw, and other crop residues, manure, sugarcane, and many other by-products from a variety of agricultural processes. – http://www.entrade-x.com/what-is-bio-energy/
Biomass is ENTRADE’s main power source material. “We typically start our operations with wood pellets, then during operations we mix in more and more available waste. So what we do with that is we dry it down, pelletize it with our equipment, and then we mix in these two different types of waste streams and run our system 24/7 on it, and generate electricity out of it.” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5WNP0vYhu4
We aim to reach remote areas around the world with our compact-sized power generator, so that we can actively aid the fight for global warming. Join us for a better future!
