NULIFE GreenTech Deliverables:
- Drastically reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions & Landfill Diversion - up to 3.8 tonnes of CO2e emission reduction per ton of waste diverted from landfill to NULIFE.
- Preliminary Carbon Intensity for bio-crude is -219 g CO2e/MJ. A Carbon Intensity of -100 to -120g CO2e/MJ is anticipated for MSW. (Diesel's Carbon Intensity is 94g)
- Lower the Carbon Content of Fuels - Produce Renewable Bio-Crude Oil that can be co-processed by existing refinery infrastructure to meet Renewable Fuel Standards and Low Carbon Fuel Standards.
- Deliver direct Landfill Diversion of 80% while complementing existing waste management infrastructure.
- Fractionated into Diesel, Jet Fuel and Gasoline with extremely low Sulphur.
- Requires no premium charged to waste generator.
- No land used for production - does not compete with food.
- Zero water consumed to produce NULIFE's bio-crude oil.
- Economic Diversification & Domestic Energy Security- reduced importation of foreign bio-fuels for low carbon blending mandates.
GAME CHANGING TECHNOLOGY
This truly innovative platform delivers true landfill diversion while producing a valuable, energy dense output from Agricultural, MSW, and IC&I waste. Nearly no emissions or hazardous by-products are created and the process is significantly energy positive. NULIFE GreenTech's patented technology platform is easily scaled and is cost effective to build and operate.
The output from the NULIFE GreenTech’s proprietary HTL Reactor is refinery acceptable, bio-crude oil and renewable biochar. Unlike many renewable or bio-crude oils, NULIFE’s oil is a full replacement for traditional crude and can be sent to a refinery for fractionation. NULIFE processes the biochar into activated carbon.
- Canada has a poor record on waste – OECD ranks us 17th out of 17
- Nationally we produce over 36 million tonnes of waste
- U.S. market collects 250 million ton of MSW per year
- China implemented 'National Sword' initiative; shutting the door to recycling markets
- Residential Waste is 37% of total waste in Canada (2010)
- Local governments spent $2.9 billion on waste (2010)
- Canada has committed to cut carbon emissions by 30 million tonnes by 2030
- Many cities have adopted ambitious landfill diversion targets
- Circular economy includes ‘end of life processing & resource recovery’ (National Zero Waste Council)
- Wet wastes are expensive and difficult to handle; Even worse if contaminated
- Diversion strategies are great, but must ensure they do not just get landfilled elsewhere and are handled effectively, environmentally and recover the resources
