Frequently Asked Questions

Ener-Core Power Oxidizer EC250

  • What is the Ener-Core Power Oxidizer EC250?

    The Ener-Core Power Oxidizer EC250 is simply the cleanest, most versatile pollution control and power generation solution in the world. The revolutionary Flex Powerstation EC250 oxidizes fuel gases, especially previously unusable fuel gases, to produce clean, green electricity.

    The Flex Powerstation EC250 significantly expands the range of fuels that can be used to generate power. Unlike other current power plants that are available, the system operates cleanly and efficiently with a wide range of fuels, including landfill gas as low as 5% methane (50 Btu/scf). It is also atypical in that it accepts fuel gas near atmospheric pressure, so a gas compressor is not needed and it needs minimal fuel conditioning.

  • For landfills, why not just use a flare to destroy the methane?

    A flare certainly destroys the methane, but creates combustion-related pollution and provides no beneficial use. The Ener-Core Power Oxidizer EC250 destroys methane, has virtually zero emissions and generates electricity which creates revenue or savings to pay for the pollution clean-up and methane destruction.

    According to the EPA, methane gas is 20-25 times more potent to the atmosphere than the greenhouse gas CO2.
  • How long does Landfill produce methane?

    A landfill continues to emit methane gas for up to 100 years

Flex Turbine MT 250

OGIN Biogas

  • What is an Anaerobic Digestion Process?

    Anaerobic digestion is a natural process occurring in the absence of air. During this process, micro-organisms stabilize waste organic matter and releases biogas.
  • What is Biogas?

    Micro-organisms convert a fraction of the organic waste matter into methane-, (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) gases during a process called anaerobic digestion. This mixture of gases is known as biogas. The composition of biogas is 50 to 75 per cent methane and 25 to 45 per cent carbon dioxide. Power generators, engines, boilers and burners can use biogas as a fuel, instead of natural gas.
  • What are anaerobic Digesters?

    Anaerobic digesters are specially designed and insulated tanks that are used to facilitate the anaerobic digestion process under a controlled atmosphere in order to achieve the maximum biogas production in the shortest of time.
  • What could the Investment and the Payback period of a biogas plant be?

    The capital costs of anaerobic digester plants may range from a few hundred thousand to million of Euros, depending on the size of the plant. The payback period can range from 3 to 16 years depending on country and market conditions.
  • How many workers are needed for the day-to-day operation?

    Most commonly, a fully automated anaerobic digester plant’s daily requirements are only a couple of hours of monitoring by a suitably qualified person. However, plant failure or maintenance during shutdown may require more manpower.
  • What kind of materials can be used as Substrate?

    Manure, feed spills, crop residues, offal and most domestic and industrial organic wastes can be used as feed materials for digesters.
  • What is the difference between a Liquid Digestion Process and a Dry Digestion Process?

    Liquid digestion plants uses an intensive stirring reactor, processes substrate containing up to 17% of dry matter and require longer retention time.

    Dry digestion plants uses a plug flow reactor, can handle a substrate containing up to 35% of dry matter and require a significant shorter time of retention due to higher temperature of the process. The graphic below provides more details.
