System 260 gets its skates on while our bale-breaker bares its teeth!

It may weigh several tonnes, but the SG100’s System 260 unit – a chunky piece of water-cooling kit – slid smoothly and gracefully across 80-metres of factory floor towards its final installation location before Easter.

Under the watchful eye, of Russell Ford, our Commissioning Engineering Manager, System 260 was placed on heavy-duty roller skates and tugged slowly and smoothly to its destination by a little fork-lift truck.

Overall, we think System 260’s progress was stately! If it was figure skating, we’d give it “6.0” for technical merit and “6.0” for presentation. But as this video shows, it was quite an operation and effected to plan. Next to get its skates on will be System 350 as our first SG100 plant moves steadily towards pre-commercialisation commissioning.

Meanwhile, we continue to bring in the support equipment required for commissioning. A recent arrival was the big, blue bale-breaker that will ready the dried, shredded, and wrapped feedstock for insertion into our pyrolysis system. As our team remarked: “This thing has teeth!”. Watch this space as we’ll be continuing with regular updates on our progress.

Renewable, carbon-negative electricity, biogas, transport fuels, green hydrogen, chemical feedstock, carbon-removing biochar, transformational waste management and…and…and
Our SG100 technology produces affordable, clean, carbon-negative energy, while capturing and removing carbon, and transforming waste management for the Circular Economy.
Our carbon removing technology has wide-scale commercial, transportation and industrial applications across value chains.

Carbon Negative Energy: Each year, a single SG100 plant can generate up to 40,000 MW hours of carbon-negative power, enough for around 10,000 homes, offices or commercial properties, as well as for the transportation sector and wider industry.

Carbon Reduction: It will remove up to 25,000 tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 5,000 cars. With electrolysis, a plant processing biogenic waste will generate over 650 tonnes of green hydrogen. And the SG100 closes the waste management loop, offering a better low carbon alternative to landfill and incineration.

Carbon Capture: TheSG100 technology also generates ‘biochar’ and ‘carbon char’, a black, granular, dust-like co- product that can be sequestered in valuable agricultural, environmental, and industrial applications.

Our Mission is to significantly contribute in mitigating and reversing climate change’s negative environmental, social and economic impacts.
