Bionic Fuel Technologies

Bionic Group has developed a method called MSP- Microwawed Suported Polymerization for production of diesel oils, coal and gases. A broad range of feed stocks can be used as raw material such as waste products, vegetable and animal composites. The mainstay in the MSP technology are microwaves and catalysts for cracking of long hydrocarbon chains at low temperatures. 


The feedstock is shredded, mixed with small amounts of catalysts and pelletized. The pellets are fed into the reactor where they are exposed to heat and electromagnetic microwaves. At about 300 C the complex hydrocarbons begin to crack and vaporize. The gases are condensed and extracted into oil. The MSP process works at low temperatures which prevents the creation of toxic dioxins, PAH and other aromatic hydrocarbons.                          


The yield output from feedstocks varies between 35-94%.
About 10% of the feedstock is converted into renewable coal with similar characteristics as brown coal. 
10-15% of the feedstock is converted into volatile gases used for on-site production of electricity. The process is thus self-supporting on electricity.


A MSP plant is prepared for gradual expansion up to 4 reactors. Each reactor has a capacity to produce 10 k ton oil per year. A plant with 4 reactors has a maximum capacity to produce 40 k ton oil per year.

A plant with four reactor requires a staff of 8- 10 persons. Staff from Bionic Group can assist with education and maintenance.

Description of the activity spheres

1.  The size of the silo should allow handling of 150- 340 m3 feed stock per day. 

 

2.  The shredder crunch and mix the feed stock to a suitable size for pelletizing. Large stone, metal and glass objects need to    be removed in an earlier stage. The moisture level needs to be below 10%.

 

3.  The shredded feed stock is pelletized and small amounts of catalyst are added.

 

4.  The pellets are fed into the reactors. Four reactors have a capacity to produce 5000 l/h. The operating temperature in a reactor is 300- 350 C.

 

5.  The hydrocarbons chains are vaporized and condensed to oil in piping systems. 

 

6.  The oils can be distilled and purified into a multiple qualities of fractions such as jet fuel, diesel fuel, heating and bunker oils and lubricants. 

 

7.  As example rubber granulate from shredded automobile tires gives 60% light oils, 15% coal and 10% gas. The energy content of the oils is 36 Mj per kg.
