Carbon Capturing™ Energy
Genesis technology currently produces clean, tar-free syngas with a high hydrogen content. This syngas can be burned directly, converted into purified hydrogen gas or used to synthesize liquid fuels. In addition, waste heat from the machine can be used for a multitude of direct applications, it can also be captured and utilized for other low heat technologies such as production of ethanol, bio-oil and or essential oils, along with a multitude of other co-products. Our high heat system can drive many of the new low heat technologies creating a more efficient use of energy.
Our syngas can be safely combusted in boilers and internal combustion engines for the generation of steam and electricity. It can also be used in current systems and process heaters operating on natural gas or propane by either direct replacement or blending with the current fuel.
The Genesis process of selective gas generation and condesation also provides a high quality organic fraction that is well suited for anaerobic digestion. This material is excellent fuel for conversion into bio-gas. This allows conversion of solids from a wide variety of biomass streams into a liquid suitable for digestion. In this application, a fraction of the vapors is condensed into a liquid, which can then be transported or pumped to an anaerobic digester where it is converted into methane. This method of converting the heavy organic liquid fraction into methane is also less capital intensive than other methods of converting the vapors to syngas, methane or hydrogen.
A common problem with anaerobic digestion is that the material to be digested is in sold form or is slow to digest. Conversion of this material in the Genesis machine produces a high quality soil amendment along with an organic liquid that has high performance in digesters. The resulting digester cake also makes a suitable soil amendment.
The next step in utilization of our syngas is the conversion to liquid fuels. Genesis is currently developing novel processes and catalysts that will enable us to produce a variety of liquid bio-fuels including diesel and methanol, as well as bio-based replacements for gasoline and jet fuel. Initially, F-T GTL processes will be used until the Genesis GTL technology is mature. In addition to the development of proprietary catalysts and processes, it is practical and financially beneficial to partner with other strategic technology partners to utilize our pure stream syngas and to create liquid fuels and other valuable co-products.
In addition, our system takes all forms of non toxic biomass such as agricultural residues, poultry waste, coconut husks, tree clippings, sawdust, wood waste and wood products waste, food waste, etc. (virtually any form of agricultural biomass waste). Several specific new technologies that are converting biomass to ethanol and other co-products require a more homogenous cellulose supply, and therefore can only utilize a portion of the available biomass. With the Genesis technology, total utilization of available biomass can be achieved thus producing higher value carbon negative energy source.
The current pyrolysis technology from Genesis, the Gen-200, can process 200kg/hr of biomass
The Gen-200 Machine can generate approximately 100 kw/h of electricity.
The Gen-200 Machine can generate approximately 300,000 btu’s of excess heat.
The Gen-200 Machine can generate approximately 1,000,000 BTU/hr of syngas, or 10 gal/h of propane equivalent

The next generation of Genesis pyrolysis technology, the Gen-1000, is currently in development and will process 1000 kg/hr of biomass.
The Gen-1000 Machine can generate approximately 500 kw/h of electricity.
The Gen-1000 Machine can generate approximately 1,500,000 btu’s of excess heat.
The Gen-1000 Machine can generate approximately 5,000,000 BTU/hr of syngas, or 50 gal/h of propane equivalent
The Gen-1000 Machine can generate approximately 50 gal/hr of liquid fuel for digester.
The Genesis pyrolysis technology was designed to not only produce fuels and bio-char, but to produce a variety of chemicals and bio-based feedstocks for the chemical industry. Currently, selective condensation allows us to produce high valued organic compounds that can be used directly, refined, or used in manufacturing processes.
The first generation of Genesis pyrolysis technology generates high valued organic compounds including acetic acid, alcohols, and essential oils. These products are generated and collected separately from the generation of pyrolysis vapors and bio-oil. These products are separated in the gas phase before they are allowed to become trapped in the bio-oil fraction of the pyrolysis vapors.
Carbon Capturing™ Fuels
Syngas can be burned to create carbon capturing electricity and can also, with add on technology, be converted into liquid or gaseous fuels or many other co-products. The real benefit of our technology that our system takes all forms of non toxic waste biomass such as tree clippings, sawdust, virtually any form of carbon based biomass and/or waste, and accomplishes the conversion with a positive impact on the environment.
The Genesis process creates a high quality low temperature Biochar that is used as a soil amendment. The fuel becomes carbon capturing when the BioChar is placed in the soil. The carbon content of the BioChar is stable for thousands of years and is more than enough carbon to offset the CO2 emissions resulting from combustion of the bio-fuel. This results in a carbon capturing, or carbon-negative, fuel. Without the production and use of BioChar, other bio-fuels can at best be carbon-neutral.
*Note energy and fuel outputs will very significantly with different feedstocks.
*Note many energy and fuel procedures require different machine setups; currently it’s not possible to produce all energy sources from a single setup.
