About the FP250
The FP250 is a clean power generation solution using the Ener-Core Gradual Oxidation technology integrated with a 250 kW gas turbine. It is engineered to run on the widest range of gaseous fuels, in particular "low-Btu gas" from landfills, coal mines, oil fields, and other low quality methane sources.
About Ener-Core, Inc.
Ener-Core, Inc. ("Ener-Core") designs and manufactures innovative systems for producing continuous energy from a broad range of sources, including previously unusable ultra-low quality gas. The Ener-Core Gradual Oxidizer, our patented oxidation technology, enables the conversion of these gases into useful heat and power with the lowest known associated emissions. With the Ener-Core Gradual Oxidizer matched to gas turbines, Ener-Core offers systems with fuel flexibility and pollution control for power generation. The Gradual Oxidizer can also be customized for integration with larger existing power generation systems to offer unparalleled pollution control and achieve zero emissions.
Ener-Core has developed the 250kW Ener-Core Powerstation FP250 ("FP250"), and its larger counterpart, the 2MW Ener-Core Powerstation KG2-3G/GO, to transform methane gas, especially "ultra-low-Btu gas" from landfills, coal mines, oil fields and other low quality methane sources into continuous clean electricity with near-zero emissions. The Powerstations are specifically engineered for fuel flexibility and modularity, so that these low-Btu gas sources can be used as an energy resource instead of wasted through venting and/or flaring.
With dedication, deep expertise, and broad energy experience, Ener-Core serves several markets globally, including oil fields, biogas, coal mines, natural gas, emissions control, and utility power generation. For more information, please visit the Ener-core website: http://ener-core.com/
