ZeroPoint Initiates Field Commissioning of Biomass Gasification Technology
POTSDAM, N.Y., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — ZeroPoint Clean Tech, Inc. (“ZeroPoint”) today announced that it has completed the initial field commissioning of its biomass gasification Renewable Combined Heat and Power Solution at a project site in Schwarze-Pumpe, Germany. During commissioning the ZeroPoint Renewable CHP Solution produced synthesis gas that is suitable for fueling reciprocating engines on a stand-alone basis or by blending with landfill gas or natural gas. The Schwarze-Pumpe project will utilize the ZeroPoint solution to power used Jenbacher gas engines. The project is expected to begin selling power onto the grid within several weeks. The Company’s Renewable CHP Solution can be sized to power a wide range of distributed energy projects. The ZeroPoint Renewable CHP Solution produces sequestered carbon in the form of “biochar” as a co-product. Biochar offers a number of positive environmental and agricultural uses in addition to sequestering carbon.
ZeroPoint Clean Tech builds distributed-sale biomass gasifiers and deploys them around the world to make renewable energy and sequester carbon. ZeroPoint’s biomass gasification and related process technologies are designed to convert biomass into carbon-neutral synthesis gas, distillate fuels (middle distillates, ethanol, methanol, etc.) and electricity. ZeroPoint’s packaged systems include the “ZeroPoint Renewable Gas Solution(TM)” and the “ZeroPoint Renewable CHP Solution(TM)” For more information please visit www.zeropointcleantech.com
