CONVERTING BIOMASS AND PLASTIC WASTE INTO CLEAN
AND AFFORDABLE ENERGY
AgriPower, Inc. designs, manufactures, sells and services its unique, proprietary, modular and
transportable Waste-to-Energy, Combined Heat and Power “Systems” that that use “Biomass” (described below),
plastic and other waste products as fuel to cleanly provide a reliable source of low cost electricity and Heat
Energy suitable for “Co-Generation” (described below). Using well-established combustion and turbine
technologies and various configurations of its Waste Heat Generators (“WHGs”), the Systems can continuously
generate from 125 kW to 2.2 MW (gross) of on-site, base load power and considerable amounts of Heat Energy >
(50 MMBtu/hr) in an environmentally friendly manner. The Heat Energy is suitable for heating buildings and
producing hot water, steam and numerous, valuable “Co-Generation” applications such as air conditioning,
refrigeration, water desalination and purification, making ice and other commercial uses such as heat bonding and
drying various products such as paint and wood or excessively wet fuel. The Systems were designed to be
fuelled by a wide variety of abundant, renewable and low cost wood, cardboard, paper, agricultural and animal
waste materials including manure (i.e., “Biomass”) with up to a 50% moisture content and many types of plastic
waste. They were engineered to use readily available recurring customer waste thereby providing significant
economies from avoided waste disposal fees and taxes, reduced costs of electricity and avoided natural gas and
fuel oil purchases and from possible carbon credits, tax credits and “clean energy” grants.
They are intended to be affordable to acquire, inexpensive and quiet to operate, highly reliable and
efficient. Their prefabricated, skid mounted design enables them to be easily transported to the fuel source,
whether at the customer’s on-grid premises, at remote, off-grid locations, or at disaster sites. They can be
installed and fully operational in only 3 to 5 days and operated without the need for on-site technical personnel.
They come in a wide range of sizes and outputs that can be custom configured for each customer’s requirements.
They were designed to operate continuously (i.e., 24/7) and safely with minimal operator input, requiring only
unskilled and inexpensive labor to prepare the fuel. Their uptime is expected to be >95% and at least 40,000
hours (5 years) between overhauls with minimal maintenance and a low Total Cost of Ownership (“TCO”). Each
System is expected to have a typical on-grid payback period of about 3 years before tax benefits. The off-
grid payback period is projected to be less than 3 years before tax benefits from significant diesel fuel oil
savings of approximately $10 to $15 million relative to a similarly sized diesel generator, over their
expected respective 20+ year useful lives.
The Systems have a wide variety of applications across multiple industries including municipal waste and
landfill companies, supermarket chains, “Big Box” stores, malls and shopping centers, hospitals, hotels, casinos,
colleges and universities (especially those with dormitories), prisons, food processors, greenhouses, paper and
pulp companies, lumber mills, furniture manufacturers, farmers, ranchers, utility companies, government and
charitable organizations, and at municipal buildings such as libraries, schools, town halls, etc.
The initial System is expected to be completed, in commercial operation (in the New York and New
Jersey metropolitan area) and available for on-site working demonstrations in Q4 2012.
Ability To Use Many Types Of Waste Materials As Fuel
The System has been designed to use Biomass, plastic and many other waste materials as fuel,
- Commercial Waste including wood, woodchips, pellets and sawdust; construction, demolition and other
debris; wooden pallets; other wood waste including discarded furniture, crates and boxes; cardboard; paper;
discarded fruits and vegetables; and many types of plastic including bottles, containers and pallets.
- Agricultural Waste including most types of crop waste such as sugar cane bagasse and oil palm waste;
almond, coconut, nutmeg, peanut, pistachio, coffee bean and walnut shells; olive and peach pits; corn stover
(stalks, cobs); nuisance plant materials such as invader and thorn bush; bark beetle-infected trees; rapidly
growing renewable fuel crops including jatropha, poplars, willows and switchgrass; forest residuals including bark
and brush; tree and vine trimmings and clippings; and most other types of agricultural and animal waste materials
including many types of manure (from poultry, dairy cows, cattle and horses) and from municipal waste facilities.
The availability and low cost of these fuels are especially well suited to Governmental and Non-Governmental
Organizations for use at remote and off-grid villages, military bases, disaster sites, etc.
- Municipal and Utility Waste including tree waste and brush from municipal landfills, highway department
and utility tree and tower trimming and gardening activities for use as fuel in hospitals, schools, colleges,
universities, town halls and other municipal buildings.
Key Product Considerations
No current direct competition in the modular and transportable 125 kW to 2.2 MW space
First mover advantage in the Waste-To-Energy, Combined Heat and Power sector
Superior “multi-zone, variable temperature” combustion technology can operate below the
chemical reaction point; this reduces pollution and enables the use of more fuels
“High temperature” WHG technology provides higher net power outputs and greater customer
value than other systems. Proven software enables maximum operating flexibility, continuous
System optimization and constant emissions compliance
Fully automated operation with applications across multiple industries
Works with a wide variety of Biomass, plastic and other waste materials as fuel
Fuel typically consists of readily available, recurring, low cost customer waste
Reduces waste disposal expenses and provides significant fuel cost savings
Creates valuable and low-cost electricity and Heat Energy suitable for Co-Generation
Typical payback period is about 3 years; tax and carbon credits and grants may be available
Advanced Green Technology
Virtually pollution-free; will comply with most permitting requirements
Numerous System and 50-Hz and 60-Hz configurations provide a wide range of electric and heat,
hot water, steam and Co-Generation options such as air conditioning, refrigeration and water
purification. The Systems have numerous on-grid and off-grid applications.
