Project Overview

The significant scale of the needs in China are three-fold: (1) air quality improvements; (2) a sustainable, reliable and renewable fuel source for their growing energy needs; and (3) social economic needs. The BioPro Power business and project models directly address those needs. In addition, we are drawn to the speed at which China will significantly focus their efforts to pursue solutions and solve issues proactively.

BioPro Power is pleased to be introducing our proprietary biomass logistics and combustion processes to the China market as our first and foremost target. Our goal is to deploy our technology throughout the Asia Pacific region using the various biomass streams that are common there. China’s air pollution issues are severe at times. The significant contributor is the burning of coal, but the uncontrolled burning of biomass in farm fields also adds to the pollution issues. Our investments in sustainable steam and electric power production will combust that same biomass fuel to produce energy while also controlling and collecting damaging particulate emissions, and emitting an estimated 92% less net CO2 than the equivalent coal fired generation. This will minimize the impact of the current essential power needs by creating a much smaller carbon footprint. Our programs will begin with combusting corn stover and are adaptable to other opportunity biomass streams as well.

Typically when one thinks about renewable power/electricity in China, the first thing that comes to mind is wind and solar, which are both great sources of clean energy. However, neither wind nor the sun is available 100 percent of the time. Thus, the base load power needs required in China are currently served mostly by coal, along with natural gas and, in certain areas, hydroelectric. BioPro Power plans to create corn stover (or other biomass) fueled energy plants that can provide reliable and sustainable base load electricity while at the same time reducing the carbon emissions from the current practice of using fossil fuels.

The BioPro Power program helps to alleviate rural poverty through paying higher than average wages for workers, as well as the creation of economic value for the biomass material itself; both of which procure higher social and environmental standards thus improving conditions where people live, work and play. This brings our triple bottom line, environmental, economic, and social progress, to full circle through the interaction realized from our program on the significant importance and shared interdependence of all three.

China Project Plan
BioPro Power will identify existing power generating assets that have operating difficulties, or are shut-down, in the primary corn growing regions of China, that might be leased or otherwise engaged in a partnership. Whether coal or biomass-fired, these plants will be analyzed for a retrofitted conversion to use BPP’s IP protected corn stover combustion recipe. Initially, BPP will target plant operations which will allow management and technology licensing fee income; and, potentially, to participate in the net income of plant. This approach reduces up-front capital by being able to use existing infrastructure to include power purchase agreements. By retrofitting existing plants, there is a shorter time getting plants generating power sales income than by building new greenfield plants. BPP would build new combustion systems when a retrofit would not work; and, on new greenfield project sites in the future
BioPro Power’s research indicates that a number of biomass plants are having problems making money in China. Causes for this include supply management and boiler tube fouling from the high alkali content in corn stover. BPP has significant expertise and owns Intellectual Property including Know-How, Trade Secret, and US and China Patents that protect the technology for these problem areas.

To source the stover, BPP would partner with large-scale farming operations or farmer-cooperatives. BPP will manage the stover harvest campaign to maintain quality control and will hire local farmers as an added benefit for rural economic development. Coop members will earn money by selling their stover on a heat content basis and, potentially, could earn a share of the power plant profits. Such incentives will help ensure the local farmers commitment to the long-term stover fuel supply.



中国在显著规模的需求显著规模有三个方面:(1)空气质量改善; 2)可持续,可靠和可再生的燃料来源,以满足其日益增长的能源需求; 和(3)社会经济需要。BioProPower的业务和项目模型直接满足了这些需求。另外,我们以中国为重点,将着重的集中在他们的成就来寻求解决方案并且积极地解决问题。

BioPro Power很荣幸的介绍我们专有的生物质物流和燃烧过程引入中国市场,成为我们的首要目标。我们的目标是在亚太地区使用常见的各种生物质流部署我们的技术。中国的空气污染问题有时候很严重,重要的参与者是燃煤,但农场生物质的不受控制的燃烧也增加了污染问题。我们对可持续蒸汽和电力生产的投资将燃烧相同的生物质燃料以产生能量,同时控制和收集有害颗粒物排放,比同等燃煤发电机的净二氧化碳估计减少92%。这将通过创建更小的碳足迹来最小化当前基本电力需求的影响。我们的计划将从燃烧玉米秸秆开始,并适应其他机会生物质流。

通常当中国考虑可再生能源/电力时,首先要考虑的是风能和太阳能,这两者都是清洁能源的重要来源。然而,并不是100%的时间都可以使用风和太阳。因此,中国目前所需的基本负荷能力主要由煤炭,天然气和某些地区的水力发电。BioPro Power计划创建玉米秸秆(或其他生物质能)燃料能源工厂,可以提供可靠和可持续的基本负荷电力,同时减少目前使用化石燃料的碳排放。

BioPro Power计划将通过支付高于平均水平的工资以及为生物质材料本身创造经济价值来缓解农村贫困。 这两者有助于提高的社会和环境标准,从而改善人们生活,工作和娱乐的条件。通过我们的计划实现的三重底线,环境,经济和社会进步并充分体现了这三方面的重要意义和共同的相互依存关系。

BioPro Power将在中国初级玉米种植地区寻找可能出租或以其他方式从事合作关系的经营困难或关闭的现有发电资产。无论是煤炭还是生物质燃烧,将这些工厂进行改装,以使用BPPIP保护玉米秸秆燃烧配方。最初,BPP将针对工厂运营,这将允许管理和技术许可费收入; 并可能参与工厂的净收入。这种方法能够通过使用现有的基础设施包括电力购买协议来减少前期资本。通过建立新的工厂相比较,改造现有的工厂缩短了让工厂产生电力销售收入的时间。当改造不起作用时,BPP将建造新的燃烧系统; 并且我们可以建立在未来的新绿地项目点上。

BioPro Power的研究表明,在中国的一些生物质电厂有盈利的问题。其原因包括玉米秸秆中高碱含量的供应管理和锅炉管污染。BPP拥有丰富的专业知识和知识产权,包括专有技术,商业秘密,通过美国和中国的专利,来保护这些问题领域的技术。
