Clean Energy Technologies Inc. (CETY), Costa Mesa, California, has announced it has entered into an agreement to cross promote its products with Biomass Power Ltd. (BPL), a designer, builder and operator of biomass waste-to-energy power stations in the U.K.
The agreement calls for BPL and CETY to refer customers and promote and solicit orders for their products. BPL has incorporated CETY's Clean Cycle II organic rankine cycle (ORC) heat recovery generator into its waste-to-energy power plants.
CETY's management estimates that between one to four Clean Cycle II ORC heat recovery generators will be used in each family of BPL-TEC stepped grate gasification plants built by BPL, which delivers gross power outputs ranging from 140 to 560 kilowatts electric. The Clean Cycle II ORC heat recovery generator will be used to create electricity from hot water that has been produced by thermally processing (via advanced gasification) nonrecyclable end of waste biomass and plastics.
"We look forward to working with BPL to cross promote our products. We are honored that BPL, a globally recognized and market-leader in the design of gasification-based waste to energy power stations, has decided to integrate our Clean Cycle II ORC heat recovery generators into its solutions,” Kam Mahdi, CEO of CETY, says. “Through our partnership with BPL, CETY will provide a low maintenance, highly efficient ORC system utilizing our patented magnetic turbine generator that is easy to deploy and simple to maintain. We believe that the association will be very beneficial for the long-term growth of our company."
According to a report by Expert Market Research, New York City, global biomass power reached a production volume of 440 terawatt hours in 2016 and is further expected to reach 963 terawatt hours by 2022, an increase of approximately 118 percent in 6 years. Global Market Insights, Selbyville, Delaware, reports the waste-to-energy market size was $20.86 billion in 2015, of which thermal based waste-to-energy technology occupied a significant percentage of the market, which may surpass $29 billion by 2023.
"Having seen the market for environmentally friendly small scalable waste from energy solutions grow exponentially, BPL is pleased to work with Clean Energy Technologies and integrate their product line into our stepped grate gasification solution for waste to energy plants,” Ben Talbott, CEO of BPL, says. “We expect that our new relationship will enable us to better serve our clients' needs for electricity by efficiently producing medium temperature hot water from processing one of the worlds increasing problems, waste, as a clean fuel."
