THE CONFIDENTIALITY NOTE: The information contained in this Project Summary is the property of SPC GRUS Ltd and is commercially valuable, to be kept confidential. Introduction to the Project. SPC GRUS Ltd was founded in 1994 to perform the complex project of engineering works, such as development, design and maintenance of technical equipment used in the manufacturing process of solid materials: silicon oxide, aluminum oxide, iron oxide, titanium oxide, zirconium oxide, etc. with melting temperatures from 1500 to 3000 degrees Celsius. From 1994 to 1999 the work undertaken at the request of Dynelec USA. Experts from GRUS participated in the design and construction works, equipment tests, experiments and analysis. In 1999 Dynelec received a Patent (US 5,964,913, A, 12.10.1999) to produce the above mentioned monolithic materials, the authors of this patent are Russian Citizens working in GRUS. In 2004, experts from GRUS received a Patent (RU â„– 2224725, 27/02/2004) which was an alternative to American method. Thus, Russian scientists had developed A High-temperature Technology also known as "technology of Titov N.F." or "technology three in one", the decomposition of substance into its constituent elements with the use of a stabilized gas discharge with high energy efficiency. Mission. Our mission is to set up, develop and use the new A High-temperature Technology in the UAE. Products of technology. A High-temperature Technology creates two products as result: a chemical compound (such as silicon oxide, Si n O 2n +3) - a newly implemented structural material and metal like Na (type K, Ca, Li, Be, Mg, etc.) with a high degree of purity due to the almost complete separation of the original substance into its constituent elements. 1
The entire process takes place in the thermally insulated volume with minor losses. The cost of the initializing energy is ten times less than the existing technologies of pure metal production. The main raw material in this technology is the sodium silicate and similar glass forming mixtures. These substances are the main ingredients of the earth's crust, and among them the most widely found are silicon oxide, aluminum oxide and iron oxide, and if we add to this that the mass fraction of oxygen bound in minerals that are composed of silicon, aluminum and iron, about 30% (earth's crust bound oxygen total is 47%), then only the mass of these four elements, these three types of mineral compounds, including the percentage of other elements that make up about 71% of the earth's crust. For example, carbon, which could be found plants, coal, peat, oil shale, the compounds of oil, combustible gas, which at first glance, is a very large stock, and that in this case is insignificant to the earth's crust (only 0.1% by weight). The complex process largely coincides with the production of technical glass and is fairly easy to implement on an industrial scale. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the production of new construction and other materials from cheap raw materials is accompanied by the production of highly pure metals, as well as thermal and electrical energy, which is sufficient to sustain its own production. Strategic Industry. This technology allows us to create a number of manufactures in the following areas: 1. Electrochemical column for the production of electricity, high purity metals and new materials (1.5 MW-25MW) 100 â€“ 150 pieces. Products in the first stage: - Electricity -3.6 million kWh up to 60 million kWh per day, the total power of these columns is 150 - 2500 MW, especially pure alkali metals - sodium, lithium, potassium, magnesium, etc. - up to 40 kg / day , a new silicate materials are non-stoichiometric composition up to 500 kg / day. 2. Production of sources of electric current for computers (laptop, mobile phones, watches, etc.), passenger motor vehicles, batteries, or batteries (from 3 to more than 10 kW), sources of electric current for the dump trucks (capacity of an engine 1.5 - 3 MW), as well as for rail transport (power 10-15 MW). 2
3. Production of solar cells with conversion efficiency of more than 50% (in the world today this ratio is between 17 and 20%). Their charging time would be 20 hours a day, including night time as well. 4. Release of nanomaterials for armor (bullet proof vests for the infantry, armor for tanks and infantry fighting vehicles) whose tensile strength would exceed any in use today, by at least 5 times. 5. Production of laser resonators 6. Production of metals of high purity for applications in medicine (blood substitute and a variety of medications, the second and third re-division structure), in nuclear reactors on fast neutrons, household and food chemistry, and perfumes. 7. Production of materials for rocket spacecraft (withstanding heat over 3500 Â° C), and aircraft. The outer and inner lining (in the cabin at 1000 Â° C, covering the water release). 8. Production of diodes, resistors, circuit boards for computer chips, optical fibers for communication (Ă¸ 3 mm or more) materials with the desired magnetic and electric properties for electric engines etc. 9. Production of clean food and other packaging (rather than any kind of plastic and other packaging), a film for greenhouses that allows ultraviolet light and air through, bank securities, advertising stickers, paper money, and any bottle packaging (the strength of the above items is 5-10 times higher than any in use today). 10. Pipes for oil, gas, water and sewers diameters could range from 1/2 cm to 3 m, the strength is 5-10 times higher. Capital investments. This Project is a complex development that requires Capital investments on following stages: First Stage of the Project: Setting up a plant to produce columns for the electrochemical production of electricity, high purity metals and new materials. (Power of 1.5 MW-25 MW), from 100 to 150 columns per year. 3
The cost of this project is $46 million; quarterly investment allocation is attached (Appendix 1). Construction period is 26 - 28 months. The plant will include a laboratory, and 15 to 18 electrochemical columns will be produced. The plant capacity is from 100 to 150 columns per year. And by the end of the third year of the commencement of construction output will be: - Electricity - 3.6 million kWh up to 60 million kWh per day, the total power of electrochemical columns 150 - 2500 MW; - Highly pure alkali metals - sodium, lithium, potassium, magnesium, etc. - up to 40 kg / day (projected cost of production of sodium metal of high purity is from $10 - 20, which will have a market price of $3000 - 5000); - New non-stoichiometric silicate materials - up to 500 kg / day. (Planned cost by $10 - 20, the planned sale price $30); According to conservative estimates payback of the proposed project will not exceed 2 years from the date of commencement of production. Second Stage of the Project: Setting up a plant to produce batteries and battery cells, which generate electricity with a capacity of 3 to 10 kW per battery, based on the technology of the new substance, "a source of EDF (electromagnetic driving force)," with unparalleled system of charging. Both projects: the construction of the battery plant and construction the plant for the production of electrochemical columns will be operated at the same time in the following sequence: a) Pre-project stage will commence by the end of the first year of construction of the plant for the production of electrochemical columns. b) The design stage and the necessary applied research will be launched by the end of the second year of construction of the plant for the production of electrochemical columns. By this time, a scientific and engineering team will be established, laboratories set up and partners selected to develop and manufacture batteries and battery cells. c) Making available an experimental batch of battery cells by the end of the third year after commencement. 4
d) The mass production of battery cells will be launched at the end of the fourth year after commencement. Developing a business plan will start at the pre-project stage and will take from 6 to 12 months. The parameters of the business plan may be obtained upon the completion of preconceptual design stage and the tentative projects of the laboratory and the battery plant. The actual cost of the pre-stage, conceptual design and business plan will be determined before the start of these works. The construction of a plant to produce batteries and battery cells, which generates electricity with a capacity of 3 to 10 kW per battery is estimated to cost from $80 million to $120 million.
