About EnerTech Environmental

EnerTech Environmental is a renewable energy company focused on the development and commercialization of clean combustion technologies for biosolids (sewage sludge) and other organic wastes. EnerTech's patented SlurryCarb process aims to cleanly and economically converts high-moisture wastes into a high-grade renewable fuel, with significant cost savings over alternative options. Biosolids and other feedstocks undergo a molecular rearrangement that transforms these high-moisture materials into a renewable fuel suitable for the replacement of fossil fuels. By processing biosolids as a fluid, the technology aims to provide savings in both capital and operating costs. The resulting fuel, called E-Fuel, is a clean, renewable fuel that is an excellent replacement for fossil fuels. As a renewable fuel, E-Fuel produces essentially zero net greenhouse gas emissions.

Wastewater district loses millions to biosolids boondoggle

Jan 11, 2013

Wastewater district loses millions to biosolids boondoggle Jan. 11, 2013 Updated Aug. 21, 2013 12:28 p.m. By Tony Saavedra, Register investigative reporter SEND PDF Call it a biosolids boondoggle. In 2005, Atlanta-based EnerTech Environmental Inc. sold the Orange County Sanitation District and waste treatment plants from Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties on a way to turn their biosolids – it is what it sounds like – into clean-burning coal-like pellets. But the Enertech plant in Rialto was closed for repairs more than it was open. And in October it went belly up with $150 million in debt and not nearly enough assets to cover the bill. “This is a painful ‘oops,' a good idea that didn't work,” said Geoff Berman, with Development Specialties Inc., a Los Angeles company that is helping to liquidate the plant. The Orange County Sanitation District dropped EnerTech in June, but not before spending $3.5 million more than it should have to get rid of its biosolid wastes, according to Jim Colston, the district's environmental compliance manager. Colston doesn't consider it a loss, though. Things could have been much worse. OCSD could have invested in the EnerTech plant, rather than just being a customer, Colston said. Although the contract with OCSD was signed in 2005, the plant didn't come online until 2008. The Orange County district generated about 750 wet tons per day of biosolids, sending about a third to EnerTech. The rest was used for composting or spread on rural land that did not produce anything for human consumption. Sounds good, except that the EnerTech plant kept breaking down, forcing it to send the waste to Arizona, to be spread out on rural land. Basically, EnerTech was charging high-tech rates for old tech methods. Orange County got a chance to dump the contract in 2011, but gave the biosolids plant another chance. Part of the attraction was Orange County needed a way to creatively handle all the B.S. – that's right, biosolids – it was creating. “This looked like a bargain,” said Colston. “Orange County Sanitation District is always looking for new technology.” No longer beholden to the EnerTech deal, OCSD is saving up to $1.5 million a year on its biosolids handling, Colston said. It now sends 10 percent to a landfill, 40 percent to composting and 50 percent to be spread on rural land – at least until the next good idea comes along.

Capturing Carbon Dioxide to Fuel the World The amazing technological and economic progress achieved in the past 100 years has largely been fueled by hydrocarbons. However the sustainability of this progress is now coming into question, both due to the rise in greenhouses gases caused by hydrocarbon combustion and the predicted depletion of fossil hydrocarbon sources. Sequesco's goal is to develop technologies which help enable hydrocarbons to continue fueling human progress, while alleviating the problems of greenhouse gas emissions, growing geological scarcity, and the drawbacks of agriculturally produced biofuels. The company's guiding principle is to use microbes as master chemists in sustainable systems that serve the dual role of sequestering carbon dioxide and producing transportation fuels.

Citrine Renewable Energy

Citrine Renewable Energy (CRE) develops systems that cost effectively convert the biogas generated by landfills, waste water treatment plants, and other sources of biological waste into high value natural gas, which can be used to power natural gas vehicles. In addition to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from landfills and sewage works, CRE's systems enable vehicles that use the fuel it produces to reduce harmful NOx emissions by 50 and particulate matter emissions by more than 70. Truck and bus fleets powered by fuel produced by CRE can also benefit from fuel cost savings as compared to the cost of operating diesel engines.
