HOLYOKE, MASS.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
ESG Clean Energy, LLC, developers of Net Zero Carbon Footprints and clean energy solutions for distributed power generation, announced today the installation of its first electric generation facility that will produce over 4.2 MW of clean power, emit zero CO2, and use the exhaust to provide low-cost distilled water to local manufacturers.
Under a Power Purchasing Agreement with Holyoke Gas & Electric (HG&E), a municipal power provider serving Holyoke, Mass., ESG will utilize a patented carbon-capture system that will enable HG&E to provide low cost energy to its residence while preventing over 15,000 tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere every year. It will also help boost the reliability of the area electric grid during peak usage times throughout the year.
Installation of two internal combustion engine units began in July at the 1.3-acre site located in Holyoke. The natural gas generators are scheduled for full operation after grid connections are complete.
“A lot of research and development has gone into this new energy system. And as a result, we can now provide a real solution for not only generating clean electricity more efficiently but capturing the CO2 in a manner that the exhaust emits zero CO2 and helps produce precious commodities,” said Olen A. Bielski III, director of business development at ESG Clean Energy. “So it’s exciting to see our first power generation project come to life.”
The ESG Clean Energy power generation system is able to utilize waste heat from a conventional, natural gas, internal combustion engine to drive its carbon dioxide capture technology without loss of efficiency.
Exhaust gas contains a significant amount of water vapor and CO2 as naturally occurring byproducts of the combustion process. By separating those two elements, the ESG system can produce distilled water - and other commodities such as urea, methanol, and recycled plastics - while capturing close to 100% of the CO2.
As a result, Net Zero Carbon Footprint power production is achieved.
Besides electrical power generation, the ESG system can also be utilized in a number of different environments, including:
Plastics Recycling Operations - Can be made more affordable and safe for the environment by providing low-cost, CO2-free heat that is critical to its processing.
Nitrogen Removal - Can be done more efficiently and cleanly. Nitrogen can cause algae blooms in waste water treatment plants and is a risk to human health, so its removal has become an emerging, worldwide concern.
Stranded Natural Gas Wells - Can be effectively converted from non-operating revenue producers to operating revenue producers by incorporating the ESG system into its production process.
Microgrids - Can be made more reliable in times of emergency with the distributed power abilities of ESG power generation when regional grids go down.
Data Centers – Can provide large data centers with clean low-cost energy in a relatively small package
Crypto Mining Operations – Can meet the energy demands of crypto mining operations without emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
