Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc (OTC Pink: UATG) subsidiary, H2O Processing, today announced the acquisition of Nathaniel Energy, Ltd, which owns various intellectual properties.
UAT Group Chairman and CEO said, “H2O’s acquisition of Nathaniel Energy adds key intellectual property that complements the company’s green initiatives in a range of market segments. The implications of developing this technology are far-reaching and an exciting addition to the growing list of internal intellectual property.”
Nathaniel Energy Corporation has developed several waste-to-energy systems that convert solid waste (municipal waste, tires, rice husks, etc.) into usable energy. Examples of these systems have been installed across the United States. In Virginia, the Norfolk Housing Authority installed a firebox in the main boiler room of the Norfolk housing project. The request was to provide heating and domestic hot water for 400 apartments. The combustion chamber was installed using peanut shells as fuel and meets all required air quality emission standards.
In Georgia, the Atlanta Journal and the Constitution Newspaper had a combustor installed to solve the two identified problems at their main plant. Nathaniel Energy has successfully eliminated paper, plastic and pallet waste while providing heated air to reduce humidity in printing presses. Using all the “waste” from the plant, the material was shredded and fed to the Nathaniel Combustor which produced process heat for the plant. In Washington, the Tacoma site of the Paxport plant produced several tons of sawdust requiring removal at great expense. In addition, the milled cedar produced on site required expensive gas ovens to dry the wood. Nathaniel Energy installed a combustion system that uses sawdust waste to produce the heat needed for the ovens. This new system eliminated costly transportation costs to dispose of waste, used waste as free energy, and exponentially reduced the plant’s carbon footprint. The city of Yuma, Colorado purchased a firebox for their local landfill. The landfill produced RDF to produce steam for the RDF plant and reduce the “waste” in their landfill.
The disposal of used tires is a constant concern. They consume valuable landfill space, provide breeding grounds for disease-carrying parasites, pose a serious potential threat to the environment as air and water pollution (bacteriological degradation). In addition, the disposal of these tires represents the loss of a considerable amount of energy and usable resources. The non-steel rubber shreds can be fed into the Nathaniel Energy combustion chamber where the fuel components are converted into fuel gas. The three-step process gasifies volatile hydrocarbons and breaks down heavier hydrocarbon molecules into basic components which then oxidize the remaining heavy hydrocarbons and solid carbon into a combustible gas which is collected mixed with a tightly controlled amount of air and burned. at very high temperature. This extreme temperature effectively destroys 100.0% of hazardous air pollutants. The heat from this reaction is used to generate steam to generate electricity. A single installation is capable of producing more than 20 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 20,000 homes.
Nathaniel Energy set up a tire recycling plant in Hutchins, Texas, and received thousands of car and truck tires there. The tires were shredded, the wire removed, and the shredded tires became tire-derived fuel (TDF). The TDF was sold to Holsem Cement as fuel for their cement manufacturing process. The wire removed was sold for scrap. The Hutchins plant was designed, installed and operated by Nathaniel for several years before being sold.
The CEO of H2O Processing commented: “Having been involved in the development of combustor technology, it is nice to have the technology back under our roof to be further developed and improved. My vision has always been to use this technology in concert with other products, municipalities and services. It is a revolutionary technology that is badly needed in modern times”.
Although current designs are very efficient and produce very low air emissions, it is possible to further reduce air emissions while improving the overall energy efficiency of the facility. Using technology from H2O Processing, a facility has the potential to become a true state-of-the-art Zero Emissions Facility (ZEF). H20 Processing intends to use this newly added technology to power its water treatment systems while striving to provide zero emissions technology across multiple market segments and products. The company plans to file additional patents in the future.
