LAKE FOREST, Calif., Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PowerHouse Energy Inc. (PHE) and M2 Renewables, Inc. (M2R) are pleased to announce their recent mutual signing of a Strategic Distribution Agreement, granting M2R exclusive rights to distribute and sell the Pyromex AG Ultra High Temperature Gasifier (UHTG) for use in PHE's wastewater market sector for applications of 50 ton/day or less. M2R consummated the agreement by submitting an initial purchase order to PHE for a 5 tpd UHTG system.
"This is the culmination of over two years of collaboration to confirm the effectiveness of the Pyromex thermal conversion reactor in creating clean syngas from wastewater treatment plant solids," remarked Dr. Scott Noll, M2R's Director of Renewable Energy. "The high temperature air-free reaction environment produces a remarkably clean synthetic gas, suitable for the production of methane, hydrogen, renewable electricity, or liquid fuels. The UHTG is particularly attractive because of the outstanding chemical conversion efficiency and the zero air emissions profile in the production of the high quality syngas."
M2R now offers both the 5 ton per day (tpd) and 25 tpd Pyromex reactors. PHE and M2R can deliver a fully integrated system including wastewater solids screening and de-watering, solids handling, drying, thermal conversion, syngas quench and cleanup, methanation, and electrical generation. According to David Moard, CEO of PHE, "We are very pleased to formalize our working relationship with M2R, a progressive company that is re-defining efficient, cost effective and sustainable wastewater treatment. PHE's zero-emissions Pyromex reactor is a perfect complement to M2R's technology offering. We look forward to working with M2R to help wastewater treatment owners worldwide achieve a greater measure of energy independence."
The patented Pyromex systems will be assembled at PHE's Carson City, Nevada manufacturing and testing facility. With an existing 1 tpd test facility and a 25 tpd commercial installation located in Munich, Germany, PHE's 5 tpd UHTG reactor in Carson City is expected to be open for customer testing by the end of 2011. M2R completed two full rounds of wastewater solids testing in Munich during 2010, confirming the operational simplicity and effectiveness of the Pyromex reactor and defining performance characteristics, syngas quality and critical design parameters.
About M2 Renewables, Inc. (M2R)
M2R is revolutionizing the process of wastewater treatment. The M2R system uses less space, consumes less power, and requires less human resources to operate while converting the solids removed from wastewater into renewable electricity. The Title 22 certified scalable system allows clients to deploy for the size needed while allowing growth to meet increasing demand, dramatically improving carbon footprint when compared to conventional treatment plants.
The M2R Process has three components: the M2R Solids Separator which removes suspended solids from the raw influent, the M2R Modular Filter, a fully automated, continuously cleaning media filtration system with remote monitoring and control capabilities, and the M2R Energy Conversion System which transforms the removed solids into energy end products.
M2 Renewables offers its treatment process and energy conversion system to municipalities, wastewater treatment authorities, governmental agencies, industry and developers.
