A PROVEN PROCESS
HOW IT WORKS?
Concord Blue uses a patented technology called steam thermolysis to convert nearly any waste material into clean, renewable energy. Unlike other waste-to-energy processes, Concord Blue’s unique method relies on heat transfer instead of incineration—efficiently producing the highest quality syngas with limited pollution and no flame.
Concord Blue utilizes a closed-loop system sustained by the byproducts it creates, producing its own energy so that no additional fuel is needed once the process begins. Because Concord Blue’s unique technology allows the tower and waste inputs to be heated in an oxygen-starved environment, the facilities themselves do not produce toxic oxidized pollutants, such as dioxins and furans. With no need for costly add-on scrubbers to clean emissions, the Concord Blue technology process is not only better for the environment, but also more cost-effective.
Concord Blue’s technology meets the needs of nearly any business or community, offering flexibility in feedstock, end product, and scale. Waste streams can include municipal solid waste, biomass, sewage, manufacturing waste, plastic waste, hospital waste, and any other organic material. Regardless of the input type, the technology offers wide range of output choices, such as syngas, electricity, liquid fuels, and hydrogen. Byproducts include biochar, clean water, ash, heat for conversion of energy, heat for producing hot water, and heat for cooling.
Our technology is flexible in three ways—feedstock, end product and scale. Our sustainable process can scale up and down to fit nearly any need. Regardless of the feedstock used, we offer a variety of options for the type of output produced. Because we use a closed-loop system that creates its own energy, our facilities generate a number of useful byproducts, but virtually no pollutants or unusable materials.
Our versatile process creates clean energy utilizing a variety of waste streams, including municipal solid waste, biomass, sewage, manufacturing waste, plastic waste, hospital waste, agricultural and livestock waste, slaughter waste, and any other organic waste material.
Our patented technology produces sustainable energy sources such as syngas, electricity, liquid fuels, and hydrogen. In addition, our process creates many desirable byproducts, including biochar, clean water, ash (used in fertilizer and construction), heat for conversion of energy, heat for producing hot water, and heat for cooling (water or air conditioning).
