Green3Power Operations, Inc. and Vanderweil Engineers are developing a 1,000 tons/day Gasification Diesel Fuel Production Facility in St. Lucie County, Florida. Under the executed waste services agreement, the Gasification Facility would receive approximately 800 tons/day of waste including 471.4 tons/day of freshly collected municipal solid waste (MSW); approximately 105.0 tons/day of construction and demolition debris (C&D Debris), approximately 123.3 tons/day of Yard Waste, and approximately 100.3 tons/day of used tires. In addition, 200.0 tpd of C&D Debris from the existing C&D Landfill, or 200.0 tons/day of baled MSW from the existing MSW Balefill would be excavated and would be transported to the Gasification Facility, where the waste would be converted into 64,000 gallons/day of ultra-low sulfur renewable synthetic fuels and electricity for the running of the facility. he Gasification Facility includes a Sorting Facility to remove heavy metals and reduce ash content, a Waste Dryer, Gasifier, a Cyclone to remove particulate matter from the synthesis gas, a Slagging Unit, a high efficiency, high temperature and pressure HRSG Boiler, and four-stage Steam Turbine/Generator,

When in full operation, the projected $228 million budget for the St. Lucie

a Fischer Tropsch Reactor and Fuel Production System, and highly effective flue gas treatment system. When in full operation, the projected $228 million budget for the St. Lucie plant including insurance costs will produce approximately 64,000 gal/day of ultra-low sulfur renewable synthetic fuel and 16,000 gal/day of Naptha with projected revenues of more than $83 million annually, varying with the price of fuel. The anticipated internal rate of return on the project investment is approximately twenty percent 20% with an EBIDTA of approximately $56.0 million in Year 1. The plant will create approximately 221 direct new jobs in the St. Lucie area at the facility. Hundreds of jobs will be created during the construction of the facility and hundreds of indirect jobs will be created once the facility is in operation. The power plant will feature an effective flue gas clean up train to ensure that regulated emissions are far below the concentrations allowed under Federal air quality standards. The up-flow fluidized bed gasifiers to be used at the new facility have been in waste to energy service for more than 33 years. The project management team consists of the following team members:

Waste will be transported to the Sorting Facility, where the waste will be sorted to remove metals, glass, e-waste, and unacceptable waste, and then processed through a shredder to reduce the particle size. The waste will then be fed into the dryers, to reduce the water content, and then fed into the Gasifiers. The Gasifiers convert the waste into a synthesis gas and ash at a temperature of 1,000 to 1,400 deg. C. The diesel fuel production system utilizes an advanced Fischer Tropsch reactor to produce ultra-low sulfur renewable synthetic No. 2 diesel fuel. The flue gas is processed through a Cyclone to remove particulate matter, an Acid Gas Removal Unit and Ammonia Scrubber to remove HCl, H2S, and HNO3, an Electrostatic Precipitator to remove sub 2.5 micron particulate matter, a Bag House with carbon injection to remove particulate matter, heavy metals, and organics, and is then discharged out the stack at a temperature of 200 deg C, which prevents condensation.

The Green3Power Operations Renewable Energy Gasification System extracts water from the waste, and combines that water with leachate from the collection vehicles, Sorting Facility, and Inert MSW Landfill, and wastewater from the onsite sanitary facilities and cleaning water, and that water is treated in an onsite leachate/water treatment facility to boiler feed water standards. This treated water is then used as the makeup water in the system to provide the process and cooling water for the facility. Therefore, 100 percent of the water used by the facility is recycled. On the Power Production Line the Synthesis gas is passed through an HRSG Boiler to produce high temperature and pressure steam. The steam is fed to a high efficiency steam turbine to generate clean, green, renewable electric energy. The flue gas is processed through a Cyclone to remove particulate matter, an Acid Gas Removal Unit to remove HCl, H2S, and HNO3, an Electrostatic Precipitator to remove sub 2.5 micron particulate matter, a Bag House with carbon injection to remove particulate matter, heavy metals, and organics, and is then discharged out the stack at a temperature of 140 to 200 deg C, which prevents condensation. The Power Production Line produces parasitic loading for the electricity needed for the facility of clean, green, electrical power 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

The Green3Power Operations Renewable Energy Gasification System

The Green3Power Operations Renewable Energy Gasification System does not take water from the city water supply, and does not discharge any wastewater to the sanitary system. All water is collected on site, treated onsite, and is recycled and used as process and cooling water. In addition, emissions from the facility are 100 times lower than EU and USEPA standards for Heavy Metals, Particulate Matter, NOx, SOx, and other key industrial pollutants, and the ash is processed through a slagging unit to remove the carbon, melted to form slag, and then crushed and sold as a sand replacement for concrete block production. The Gasification Facility recycles 100 percent of the water that it uses, has emission more than 100 times below air quality standards, and does not put by-product ash into a landfill. As a result, the Renewable Energy Gasification Facility is considered to be a “Green” technology for water, air, and solids.

The proposed Oxygen Fed Gasification Diesel Fuel Production Facility saves the County approximately $2,481,380/yr

The proposed Oxygen Fed Gasification Diesel Fuel Production Facility saves the County approximately $2,481,380/yr in tipping fees, $2,336,000/yr in reduced costs of sorting, baling, and landfilling, and $400,000/yr in leachate treatment costs, for a total savings to the County of $5,217,380/yr. In addition, the size of the landfills will be reduced by approximately 350,400 cu yards/yr. Overall, the proposed Oxygen Fed Gasification Diesel Fuel Production Facility is a very good alternative for the County.
