Biomass Utilization to Generate Clean Energy
Decommissioned coal plants are being retrofitted to burn biomass and landfill fuel with substantially less GHG byproduct. The Carbon Foundation participates by providing biomass and landfill feed-stocks, e.g., shore-bound sargassum mats, which otherwise would foul beaches and release GHG along with toxins as it decays on land. The sale of generated carbon offsets makes this new source of clean energy commercially viable.
Methane Capture and Conversion to Clean Energy
There are nearly 800,000 marginal conventional oil and gas wells in the U.S. that vent waste methane gas because it is uneconomic to be repurposed. Mission 6 has secured rights to high efficiency, retrofitted electric generators that change the commercial equation. Even with minimal cfm unseparated gas flows, clean energy with virtually no GHG byproduct can be generated at competitive kWh cost. The sale of generated carbon offsets makes this new source of clean energy commercially viable.
Solar Energy Generation from Material Coating
The U.S. is fundamentally reliant on China for solar panels and the rare earth elements essential to their construction. Mission 6 has secured rights to a transparent coating that can generate up to 3X traditional solar without panels and with widespread application. This technology is currently being tested in South Africa and Japan. Once available for U.S. deployment in 2024, the Carbon Foundation will evaluate the feasibility of deploying this technology for free in underserved communities at a competitive carbon offset break-even price.
