- Model 40 - Waste Oil Electrical Generator

0

The Phoenix-40 is the next generation of technology that is capable of utilizing waste oil products, such as used motor/equipment oil, to produce electricity for transfer to the power grid. Utilizing the award-wining, clean burning Cyclone Mark V External Combustion Engine, preliminary designs rate the P-40 generator system as producing upwards of 60kW of electrical power.

The P-40 is a more complex genset than the P-10 with higher operating temperatures and pressures. This allows it to produce 3 to 6 times more elelctricity. It is designed for larger waste oil producer with monthly quantities of 800 gallons or more.

The benefits of the P-40 are the same as the P-10. It is a green alternative energy source, that eliminates a potential contaminate and produces an additional revenue stream.

The Phoenix 40 is still in development and not scheduled for pilot testing until early 2013.

Free Fuel
The Phoenix-10 and Phoenix-40 run on waste (used) oil. In essence, the fuel is free since it is a by product of facility operations. It has already served its intended purpose and has been previously expensed.

Low Emissions
The Phoenix gensets utilize external combustion engines. The fuel stays in the combustion chamber much longer than a internal combustion engine. This allows the fuel to be more throughly buned greatly minimizing harmful emissions to the atmosphere. A gasoline or diesel engine uses explosions to power the engine. These explosions last but only a millisecond which does not allow the fuel to be completely burned; therefore, exhausting more pollution. Our emmissions are esentially free of NOx and CO2 particulates.

No Ground Water Contamination
Waste (used) oil is a potential contaminant. A very small percentage is actually re-refined and some is used for other purposes. Unfortunately, a large portion is disposed of incorrectly. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, waste oil from one oil change can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water. The Phoenix gensets eliminate waste oil as a potential contaminant by throughly and cleanly burning it in our combustion chambers.

Liability Eliminated
Cradle-to-grave liability and associated liability insurance costs are eliminated due to the fact that all of the waste oil is burned in our gensets. There is no need to have it disposed of in landfills or transported off site by third party collectors.

Year-Round Use
Unlike waste oil heaters, our gensets can operate year-round and in southern and western regions of the country. Since they produce electrical power rather ambient heat, they have much more flexibility in how they are used. In addition, unlike wind or solar power, our gensets are not restricted by the lack of sunshine or air movement.

Return On Investment
Our gensets are designed to produce electricity that can be used to power operations or transfered back to the grid. Due to this reduced need for expesive electricity from the utility company we anticipate, in most cases, a payback time of around two to three years and positive cash flow within 12 months. The ROI should be in the 30% range.

Free or low cost Fuel

The Phoenix genset can be equipped to operate on either waste (used) oil or Natural Gas. In the case of used oil, the fuel is essentially free since it is a byproduct of facility operations. It has already served its intended purpose and has been previously expensed. If fueled by Natural Gas, the extremely low cost and massive availability makes it an extremely attractive fuel source.

Low Emissions

The Phoenix genset utilizes a high-tech Phoenix Steam Generator (PSG) and an external combustion engine. In this configuration, the fuel stays in the combustion chamber much longer than an internal combustion engine. This allows the fuel to be more thoroughly burned, which greatly minimizes harmful emissions to the atmosphere. A gasoline or diesel-powered engine uses explosions to power the engine. These explosions last only a millisecond which does not allow the fuel to be completely burned; thereby, exhausting more pollution. The Phoenix genset emissions are essentially free of NOx, with insignificant SO2 levels.  In addition, there is virtually no 'burned oil' odor from the unit, as opposed to some commonly commercially-available oil burning/heating units. 

no Groundwater Contamination

Waste (used) oil is a potential soil, surface water and groundwater contaminant. A very small percentage is actually re-refined and some is used for other purposes. Unfortunately, a large portion is disposed of incorrectly. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, waste oil from one oil change can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water. The Phoenix genset thoroughly and cleanly combusts the fuel in the PSG, which eliminates the potential release of the waste oil to the environment.

Liability Eliminated

Cradle-to-grave liability and associated liability insurance costs are eliminated due to the fact that all of the waste oil is burned in our genset. There is no need to have it disposed of in landfills or transported off site by third party collectors.

Year-Round Use

Unlike common waste oil heaters, the Phoenix genset can operate year-round and in regions with warmer climates (i.e., Southern and Western regions of the U.S.). Since it produces electrical power plus ambient heat (Combined Heat and Power [CHP]), it has much more flexibility in how it is used. In addition, unlike wind or solar power, the Phoenix genset is not restricted by the lack of wind or sunshine.

Return on investment

The Phoenix genset is designed to produce electricity that can be used to power operations or transferred back to the grid. Due to this reduced need for expensive electricity from the utility company, we anticipate a payback time of around two to three years and positive cash flow within 12 months, in most instances. The Return on investment should exceed the 30% range.
