BIOGAS, BIOMASS, FUELS and ELECTRICITY.

BioAust Energy has worked projects that are based on waste material conversions primarily to clean energy and in localized areas. This project work includes pyrolysis and gasification methods but with several innovative methods.

The areas currently worked include rubber tyres to energy in both urban and rural locations, timber conversion to energy, landfill gases to energy, biomass to energy and general waste to energy processing.

BioAust Energy concepts are innovative and are, in many cases, instructional for the relevant industry players. Many companies with waste issues are not aware of the ability to convert to energy or the methodology available to make conversion happen.

BioAust Energy can provide both consultative and project management skills that enable businesses to change their current practices, provide new energy sources, increase efficiency and reduce energy cost. Linking with the BioAust Innovations team they are able to conceive new ideas or modify existing ideas on how to make energy efficiency a functional part of a business.

Recent energy work includes a pyrolysis plant to recycle used passenger tyres into electricity and diesel fuel for heavy machinery. This project will reduce the amount of landfill waste by more than 10,000 tonnes p.a. while allowing the processing plant to run on self-generated electricity saving around $1,000,000.00 p.a. In addition, the plant will reduce the cost of landfill dumping by $380.00 per tonne along with the necessary transport and time costs. This process type can be applied to many manufacturing facilities.

Currently, BioAust Energy is waiting on approval to install a biomass waste-to- energy plant in Mindanao which will provide employment and many new business options for the local communities. This project will be supported by the Philippine Government as part of their agriculture development plans.

Other areas of involvement for BioAust Energy has a focus in hydrogen technology, with the following focus;

Early commercialisation of low-pressure hydrogen storage technology developed between BioAust Pty Ltd and the University of Queensland Centre for Functional Nanomaterials for use in a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle.

Catalytic production of hydrogen from biomass using new low temperature and pressure catalytic processes under an R&D program with the Centre for Functional Nanomaterials.

Catalytic production of hydrogen from water at low energy inputs using new UV- nano-catalyst technology that is cost effective.

Development of a modified fuel cell based on the direct feed of atomic hydrogen from the hydrogen storage technology that is to be commercialised.

BioAust energy is interested in JV programs for waste-to-energy projects and will bring many new ideas and innovations to energy projects.
