The ReGen8 Energy CHPS derives its power from combusting waste hydrocarbons in our proprietary ReGen8 Energy Combustion Chamber. Due to the relatively long and low temperature fuel burn, this system is inherently cleaner than traditional gasoline or diesel-powered internal combustion engines. In the case of used motor oil, Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emissions are insignificant. Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) is virtually nonexistent due to the relatively low combustion temperature
Globally, the primary sources of greenhouse gas emissions are electricity and heat (31%), agriculture (11%), transportation (15%), forestry (6%) and manufacturing (12%). Energy production of all types accounts for 72 percent of all emissions.
CHPS stands for Combined Heat and Power System. The ReGen8 Energy CHPS provides electrical power and clean useable heat for facility operations, heating water, etc. Fuel is recycled in the system to heat a working fluid. This fluid powers either a mechanical mover, such as an external combustion engine, or a solid-state, semiconductor system (TEG) to produce electrical power and useable heat. The fluid is then sent to a condensing system that removes the heat. The resulting liquid then travels back to the combustion chamber to restart the process. The CHPS is a completely enclosed system.
Our System uses any combustible hydrocarbon in liquid or gaseous form such as petroleum, oils and lubricants, diesel fuel, gasoline, used motor oil, crude oil, fuel oil, hydraulic and transmission fluids; as well as methane, natural gas, alcohols, paraffin and ethers.
Yes. A single unit will produce approximately 300,000 BTUs of heat per hour. This amount increases to approximately 1,200,000 BTU/hr of usable heat with our four unit contain. The actual amount of heat produced depends on the BTU content of the fuel. A single unit system combusts approximately four gallons of waste oil per hour. This amount will change with other fuels. The four unit container uses 16 gal/hr of fuel, 24/7.
Multiple CHPS can be “daisy-chained” to increase electrical production. The number of CHPS is a function of the available fuel.
