Innovative Approach in  Waste-to-Power

The Unique Features of Unicorn Thermal Technology

Portable Design

Transportable to origin of wastes saving on regulatory issues and costs of transportation

Greater Efficiency

Much more efficient than older types of ‘producer gas’ generators due to patented filtration allowing higher efficiencies in operation and conversion

Low Costs

Low costs of staffing, operation and maintenance compared to other methods

Patented Filtration

Ability to process many kinds of contaminants safely and efficiently due to patented filtration so suitable for many ‘clean up’ operations

Rapid Payback

Very rapid payback period from sales or savings due to simplicity and efficiency

Permits Temporary Use

Portable design permits temporary use, ISO standard container can be quickly and easily moved so suitable for seasonal and project use

Easy Integration

Easy integration into local ‘micro-grids’ permitting base load assurance when intermittent renewables not available

Widely Available Components

Most parts are ‘standard’ components facilitating world wide availability and lower costs

How Does It Work?

None of the technologies are ‘new’ and all have known attributes and tested capabilities. It is the combination for these applications which is new, unique and patented! In simple terms:

Unicorn Thermal Technology

Gasification, the production of an inflammable gas by ‘roasting’ biomass in a closed combustion vessel, has been around for a very long time.  All biomass is capable of gasification, some presents difficulties but the Unicorn technology can deal with all. 

The gas is ‘dirty’ containing tars, particulates etc. and this has been the cause of the inefficiency and emissions problems of gasifier generators in the past.  Complex fabric filters and mechanical scrubbing have had the triple effects of slowing the delivery, using energy (and materials and labour) and leaving contaminated materials, filters and water, needing treatment and disposal.

The heart of the system was developed to deal with highly dangerous and toxic substances so most potential feedstock presents no significant problems.

Benefits

The Unicorn patent allows for fast throughput, much less loss of energy and a high level of cleanliness of emissions at the end of the process.

The gas is driven off leaving an inert mass of non combustible, mostly mineral, material suitable as a soil conditioner.

Results

The last stage is the generator, powered by freer and faster flowing gases, resulting in a much higher energy retrieval rate generally some 15% higher than conventional gasification systems.   This results in higher sales or savings and much easier emissions certification and, a much shorter payback period!
