£12m to encourage biomass heat

£12m to encourage biomass heat
Capital grants totalling £12 million are to be made available for the installation of biomass boilers, the government has announced.

The money, which will be allocated in grants of up to £500,000 is to be made available through the Bio-energy Capital Grants Scheme.

Local authorities, schools, social housing and other "community" buildings as well as industrial and commercial facilities can apply for the funding.

The grants, for which applications close on April 30th 2009, are designed to cover up to 40 per cent of the difference between a traditional fossil fuel burning boiler and biomass heat or combined heat and power equipment, including anaerobic digestors.

Energy innovation minister Lord Hunt said that half of the UK's carbon emissions came from heating.

He added: "By using biomass fuel to generate their own energy instead of coal, oil or gas, organisations can reduce their carbon impact and take an active role in the fight against climate change.

"We've also recently introduced new legislation which will mean people who do generate their own heat or electricity will be financially rewarded for doing so."

Through feed-in tariffs, which the recently assented Energy Bill requires, small-scale renewable energy installations will receive above-market payment for the electricity they generate.

When Are you going to listen, why can't you help me and other that are developing new technologies.

Alternative steam and power generation using the 'OZ Injector',

This is a back ground of the developments

The Wastewater treatment designed 2001 'Electrowaste' now up graded to include the 'Turbofiltration', and shortly to be added, its own power generation. The whole process will require no power from the grid. It will generate excess power if required for the grid.
It will use existing technology in the steam generation but the burners are replaced, with a 'unit known as the 'OZ Injector', they can be used in the standard boilers as well.
They will be able to be retrofitted to gas turbines, best type are with external combustion chambers.

The 'Turbofilter' used in the 'Electrowaste' is capable of nano filtration and theoretically desalination.

Wastewater treatment this concept has been proven, water from this is potable quality and safe to drink. The taste is of water with out the minerals, similar to demineralized water and is highly suited for boiler operation.
Raw sewage is treated and for every litre treated there is one litre of hydrogen gas that is able to be captured.
The technology could be used on other badly polluted water.

A full size prototype was made and tested up to 34 litres per sec, as with all prototypes there can be problems. These have been corrected with information from the testing in the new design.
The units use two pumps input and out put, both pumps are the same type, or three if used in tandem, there are no moving parts in the 'Turbofilter'.

Testing of the 'OZ Injector' unit will be done over the next few weeks, and if successful would
change every thing in the boiler industry, steam generation for power, and most importantly
the shipping industry. The main target here is the LM2500 gas turbine, or similar units, that is used for power generation and in the 'main drive propulsion' in these large ships
Fuel such as COAL, aviation fuel, NATURAL GAS would not be used, and there would be close to zero polluting emissions.

Heat in the form of a 'flame' from one small unit has a calculated output of 3MW the modified unit can go as high as 20MW.
