ESG Clean Energy Signs Letter of Intent with Ethatec GmbH to Use Carbon-Free Power Generation for Ethanol Production

ESG | December 14, 2021

ESG Clean Energy, LLC, developers of net zero, distributed power generation and clean energy manufacturing solutions, announced it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Ethatec GmbH for the use of ESG’s patented CO2-free power generation technology to power its production of ethanol. Under the LOI, US-based ESG Clean Energy will provide its patented carbon-capture system to enable Ethatec GmbH to produce different products in a sustainable way while preventing tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere every year. Ethatec uses a unique process using waste from bakeries and pizza factories (old bread, dough, and other starch-based foods). The method involves first crushing and mixing the raw waste with water before being fed into a hammer mill. The resulting liquid is then mixed with water and enzymes and heated in a multi-stage mashing process to saccharify the starch. It is then cooled and fed into fermentation tanks. Yeast is then added for alcoholic fermentation of the sugar and after 72 hours, the mixture is fed to a distillation system where ethanol is obtained. Ethatec can also produce and manufacture other products using this unique system, including biogas and nitrogen fertilizer. In order to meet the growing power demand for their production process, significant amounts of energy are required to run the operation. By using the ESG Clean Energy carbon-capture power generation system, Ethatec will be able to use natural gas to power their manufacturing plants while achieving a net zero carbon footprint. We are excited to explore the new opportunities with Ethatec and see how our carbon-capture system can augment their unique manufacturing system.Combining their system with ESG’s carbon-capture technology would create one of the most environmentally friendly systems in the industry today.” Lutz Deyerling, VP European Operations and Corporate Finance at ESG Clean Energy The ESG system is truly unique with its ability to create a Net Zero carbon outcome from a conventional, natural gas, internal combustion engine without loss of efficiency. Exhaust gas contains a significant amount of water vapor and CO2 as naturally occurring byproducts of the combustion process. By separating those two elements, the ESG system can produce distilled water – and other commodities such as urea, methanol, and recycled plastics – while capturing close to 100% of the CO2. As a result, Net Zero Carbon Footprint power production is achieved. Besides electrical power generation, the ESG system can also be utilized in a number of different environments, including: Plastics Recycling Operations – Can be made more affordable and safer for the environment by providing low-cost, CO2-free heat that is critical to its processing. Nitrogen Removal – Can be done more efficiently and cleanly. Nitrogen can cause algae blooms in wastewater treatment plants and is a risk to human health, so its removal has become an emerging, worldwide concern. Stranded Natural Gas Wells – Can be effectively converted from non-operating revenue producers to operating revenue producers by incorporating the ESG system into its production process. Microgrids – Can be made more reliable in times of emergency with the distributed power abilities of ESG power generation when regional grids go down. Data Centers – Can provide large data centers with clean low-cost energy in a relatively small package. Crypto Mining Operations – Can meet the energy demands of crypto mining operations without emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. About ESG Clean Energy, LLC ESG Clean Energy, LLC (ESG) develops Net Zero Carbon Footprints and clean energy solutions for businesses and power providers using natural gas. The ESG system utilizes patented, off-the-shelf technology to efficiently produce electricity while capturing and converting 100% of the carbon dioxide and water vapor, which can be used in the production of various commodities, such as distilled water, ethanol, and urea.

Trussville Storage receives USDA grant for solar power installation

Trussville Storage | December 30, 2021

Trussville Storage, an Alabama-based self-storage company, along with Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight, announce the receipt of a grant from the USDA for the installation of its solar power installation at 7900 Gadsden Highway in Trussville. In January 2021 Trussville Storage began its investigation of adding solar power to its facility on Gadsden Highway in Trussville. Despite limited inventory of materials and a disrupted supply chain, installation proceeded on schedule. The system has been operational since early November. "The availability of a grant from the USDA was an important factor in moving forward with the project proposed by Eagle Solar & Light" say David Protiva and Mark Titshaw of Trussville Storage. "We expect to cover about 61% of our energy use with this installation and even can sell power back to Alabama Power at times." Commercial solar in Alabama not only generates exceptional financial returns, as we have utility rates well in excess of the national average, but is also the best step toward achieving corporate sustainability goals. Climate controlled self-storage facilities produce energy consumption profiles that fit daily and weekly solar energy generation parameters very well." Samuel Yates, CEO of Eagle Solar & Light Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight said "we welcome the new owners of Trussville Storage, David Protiva and Mark Titshaw, to Jefferson County and to the City of Trussville. I am impressed with their innovative approach of using solar power to partially supply the energy needs at this expanded facility on Highway 11. Jefferson County has come a long way in the last few years and we are excited about the direction in which we are heading. We look forward to other new businesses that will be coming to our county." Trussville Storage manager, Kelly Epps, said, "The new owners have been working hard since November 2020 to make sure this facility remains the best self-storage facility in the area. Earlier this year, we completed our transition to all LED lighting and now with the solar power, the owners are showing again they want to be responsible corporate citizens." About Trussville Storage Trussville Storage is a self-storage facility located in Trussville, AL. The facility offers over 53,000 square feet of rentable storage space, both in climate-controlled units and in non climate-controlled units.
