US Navy Awards Creare LLC SBIR Phase II Option for Waste-to-Energy Project Based on Cogent Energy Systems’ HelioStorm Gasifier

Cogent Energy Systems today announced that its engineering partner, Creare LLC of Hanover NH, was awarded the Option Phase for its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant from the US Navy. The new grant extends funding for Creare to continue fabricating a complete waste-to-electricity system using Cogent Energy Systems’ HelioStorm Gasifier as the core waste processing technology.  Currently, the team is conducting shake-down tests of Cogent’s HelioStorm Gasifier unit. Creare will use the additional funds to build, integrate and test the full end-to-end system. When complete, the integrated 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 a commercial electric generator to produce almost 800 kWh of net electricity per ton of waste processed. This electricity will be available on-site for general use at a base or naval operation.

Cogent Energy Systems’ HelioStorm Gasifier To Form Core of New Waste-to-Energy System Selected for US Navy SBIR Phase II Grant

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.

Cogent Energy Systems Selected for Competitive High Impact Research and Development Program

Cogent Energy Systems today announced that it is a winner in a competitive selection process to work collaboratively with researchers at the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) located in Golden, Colorado. This collaboration will enable Cogent to demonstrate the company’s HelioStorm™ gasification system for small-scale waste to electricity production in ESIF’s simulated microgrid environment. This is Cogent’s second partnership with NREL following an earlier agreement for testing synthesis gas produced by the HelioStorm gasifier.

Cogent Energy Systems Selected for Competitive Department of Energy Small Business Vouchers Award

Cogent Energy Systems today announced that it was selected through a competitive application process to collaborate with the Biomass Feedstock National User Facility (BFNUF) at Idaho National Laboratory (INL). Through this project, INL will optimize feedstock preparation and handling for Cogent’s HelioStorm™ gasification system, which is designed for small scale waste-to-energy applications. This partnership is made possible through the U.S. Department of Energy Small Business Voucher (SBV) program, which facilitates access to the DOE national labs for American small businesses. This is Cogent’s second DOE-funded collaboration with INL. Further, Cogent holds licenses to several INL patents that undergird the company’s innovative gasifier technology.
