Cogent Energy Systems today announced that its engineering partner, Creare LLC of Hanover NH, was selected for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant from the US Navy to fabricate a complete waste-to-electricity system using Cogent Energy Systems’ HelioStorm Gasifier as the core waste processing technology. The system will be capable of cleanly converting up to 3.5 tons per day of mixed waste into energy-rich synthesis gas. This syngas will then be directly combusted in standard military generators to produce almost 800kWh of net electricity per ton of waste processed. This electricity will be available on-site for general use at a base or naval operation.
