Global Green Solutions Has Global Green Biomass Solution
Converting waste biomass to renewable energy with the lowest possible air pollution levels is the goal of the ecotechnology company Global Green Solutions.
GGRN was recently granted an experimental air quality permit by California's San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District to demonstrate its ability to meet this challenge.
The permit allows GRRN to construct its Global Greensteam unit, a highly efficient combustion system that produces steam from waste biomass, on a site owned by Aera Energy LLC, one of California's largest oil and gas companies. Global Green Solutions' target is a major reduction in pollution levels, primarily nitrogen oxides (NOx). NOx forms ground level ozone, which is a key component of smog.
Currently, waste biomass is openly burned or discarded in landfills, but new legislation prohibits these methods. In addition to significantly reducing pollution levels, GGRN's Global Greensteam will meet California's requirements for disposal.
"We expect Global Greensteam will define a new Best Available Control Technology (BACT) standard for waste biomass," said Doug Frater, president and CEO. BACT is the most stringent limitation or control technique feasible for a specific emitting application. Factors determining BACT include energy, environmental and economic impacts.
GGRN and Aera are currently negotiating an agreement for multiple Global Greensteam units to provide steam to Aera's oilfield operations. GGRN plans to install Global Greensteam units at additional customer sites worldwide to provide both steam and electricity.
