AR3C International Client – H3-CHP and the University of Windsor Successfully Test Bio-Mass Derived Producer Gas

AR3C International client H3-CHP’s gasification system can utilize many types of feedstocks to create producer gas, which is then used to fuel internal combustion engine/genset combination units to produce electricity, heat and CO2 as plant growing inputs to enhance photosynthesis or for other process input requirements.

As part of AR3C’s & H3-CHP’s ongoing engineering and development efforts to provide a broad range of fuel type options for clients, H3-CHP has developed a producer gas that utilizes densified and briquetted bio-mass sourced from plant vines and stalks.  These vines and stalks originate from vegetable greenhouse crops when the growing season has ended.  Using the vines and stalks as bio-fuel diverts them from area landfills.

The producer gas has undergone testing at the University of Windsor’s Combustion Technologies and Advanced Thermodynamic Laboratory, Center for Engineering Innovations.  There, they have equipment that tests for flame formation attributes such as distance over time and advanced instrumentation and high speed cameras to record data and footage. The results of the flame testing revealed that the energy content of a combustible air/fuel mixture of the H3-CHP producer gas is almost the same as the energy content of a propane air combustible mixture.  Therefore, the producer gas can efficiently power H3-CHP’s combine heat and power (CHP) units.

AR3C International client H3-CHP is proud to offer the bio-mass derived producer gas as an additional fuel option for clients who wish to power their CHP units with bio-mass derived fuels.
