FOR GREEN ENERGY
GENERATE UP TO 5 TIMES MORE ENERGY FROM BIOWASTE WHILST REDUCING CO2 EMISSIONS.
Climate-neutral and decentralised energy generation from biowaste
To support population growth the world needs more energy, however, to protect our planet we need less CO2 in the atmosphere and one way to achieve this is through addressing the CO2 generated from our biowaste streams, (currently estimated to be around 13 million tonnes of CO2-e carbon dioxide equivalent in Australia alone) and where possible generate additional energy from these steams. Therefore, generating climate-neutral decentralised energy from biowaste seems like the logical solution. Of course, we are not the first to company to think of this, however, the previous solutions required a lot of space and supporting infrastructure.
Mastershred has addressed these challenges by designing a decentralised, easily deployable, closed-loop, compact plant, perfectly suited to regional or remote areas that generates energy from biowaste through a unique process which also removes impurities such as metals and microplastics and as a by-product produces biochar suitable for use in land aggregation.
Stage one produces a fermentation substrate with high gas formation potential and low solids content which makes if perfect for use in anerobic digestion plants.
Stage two produces a rich biomass which can be further processed for compositing, soil amendment and peat substitution.
After vacuum drying and compression bio-briquettes are formed which can be used to process climate-neutral fuels or for the manufacturing of bio-plastics.
Finally the bio-briquettes can be converted into thermal and electrical energy via a gasification process.
In 2021 Australia generated 9.4Mt of food and garden waste. None of which was used for energy recovery
The OWE process is able to produce up to 2100kWh electricity and 4200kWh thermal energy per day.
Australia currently generates an estimated 13 million tonnes of CO2 from biowaste annually
Our unique process, extracts all the calorific value from biowaste while creating green CO2 neutral energy
The whole world can look forward to benefiting from our OWE solution, however it is particularly well suited to the following businesses and industries
- Compact with low space requirement
- Does not require large or complex supporting infrastructure
- Easily deployable
- No wastewater or excessive odour
- Decentralised solution
- Closed Loop
- Extracts all calorific value
- CO2 Neutral
- Creates electrical and thermal energy
The innovative concept behind the Organic Waste to Energy idea has been recognized and promoted by the following public German institutions.
ZIM funding from the Federal Ministry of Economics for the development (Bundesministerium der Wirtschaft für Entwicklung) of OWE technology in 2020
Funding for the adaptation and scaling of the OWE technology through the Bioeconomy funding program (Förderprogramm Bioökonomie) of the state of Baden-Württemberg in 2021/2022
Cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute (Fraunhofer-Institut UMSICHT) for further analysis and application of the generated substances
