300,000 btu/hr. 480kg feedstock capacity/day Energy Recovery Carbon Reduction: 137 mt/year

280kg solid waste/day (200 + 280 = full capacity) Landfill CO2e Diverted 788 mt/year

1 metric tonne/day wet food waste Landfill CO2e Diverted 562 mt/year 200kg usable feedstock for Energy Recovery


ENERGY RECOVERY PLUG N’ PLAY 1,487 metric tonnes CO2 diversion

300,000 btu/hr. 480kg feedstock capacity/day Energy Recovery Carbon Reduction: 137 mt/year

480kg solid waste/day (Energy Recovery full capacity) Landfill CO2e Diverted 1,350 mt/year


75% of all used cardboard ends up in landfill. (Vocaltrash.net)

Example: Cardboard in Landfill ▪

▪ ▪

1kg cardboard comprises 50% carbon.(Paperonweb.com) Anaerobic decomposition 60% CH4 & 40% CO2 gases are formed. (Wikipedia) Equation: .5kg x 60% CH4 (25x) + .5kg x 40% CO2 (1x) = 7.7kg CO2e per kg carboard waste diverted from landfill.

20kg/hour x 7.7 kg CO2 x 24hrs x 365 days = 1,349,040 kg (1,349 metric tonnes diverted from landfill).

Biomass

Biomass replaces fossil fuel use. The carbon footprint of natural gas NOT USED is used to calculate carbon offsets.

Natural Gas: 34 ½ lbs. CO2 per 300,000 btu (Engineeringtoolbox)

300,000 btu/hr. = 34.5 lbs. x 24hrs x365 = 302,220 lbs. /year (137mt)
