Decentralized Biogenic Refinery
Transforming HIGH MOISTURE Resources
The Biogenic Refinery is a thermal treatment solution using patented technology that destroys pathogens and provides nutrient rich biochar, heat and electricity. Thousands of hours of operational data have been collected from biogenic refineries operating on three continents, in temperatures as low as -20˚C. The Biogenic Refinery is transportable, designed to operate off-grid and can handle input with an average of 35% moisture.
RAPID AVAILABILITY, SCALABILITY
A small footprint and modular design allow for fast deployment. Distributed and cascaded systems deliver high availability and scalability from 10 to 50,000 people.
Pathogens are inactivated by the pyrolysis-combustion process within 24 hours, and a volume reduction of 90% is achieved on a dry basis.
VALUABLE TREATMENT PRODUCTS
Biochar can be used as a soil amendment, for odor or water filtration, cooking or heating. Thermal energy can be used for pasteurization, drying of the feedstock and for electricity generation.
REMOTE PERFORMANCE MONITORING
The kelv˚n™ software platform offers real-time reporting and alerts to operators and supervisors, allows for remote monitoring and provides user interaction through a mobile or web interface.
As markets move toward evidence-based best practice techniques, the need to collect data in a flexible platform becomes more important. kelv˚n™ is our software architecture that collects data from sensors on our proprietary control board to monitor and manage our systems. The data results are transmitted in realtime to our cloud database where further data processing and analytics are performed through SAS, SPSS or R Software. The systems operations data is scored and presented as Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that provide visual reporting for management and stakeholders.
