CES PRESENTS ON CARBON NEGATIVE ENERGY AT A&WMA’S ANNUAL TECHNICAL CONFERENCE IN BAKERSFIELD

The Golden Empire Chapter of the Air and Waste Management Association (A&WMA) held their 27th Annual Technical Conference this week in Bakersfield, California. This year’s conference focused on emerging technologies and regulatory updates. Presenters included representatives from the California Air Resources Board, State Water Resources Control Board, and San Jaoquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. CES Business Development Manager, Josh Perron, presented on CES’ carbon negative energy process and how it could help solve multiple issues facing California’s Central Valley such as poor air quality, the disposal of large amounts of agricultural waste, and the revitalization of idled biomass resources. 

The A&WMA organization is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional organization that enhances knowledge and expertise by providing a neutral forum for technology exchange, professional development, public education and outreach to more than 13,000 environmental professionals in 65 countries. The Golden Empire Chapter of the A&WMA serves California’s San Joaquin Valley and consists of members from the manufacturing, chemical, agriculture and oil and gas industries as well as numerous local government agencies.  Learn more here:  www.awma-goldenempire.org

CES Presents at California Central Valley Summit 2017

Hosted by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, this year’s California Central Valley Summit focused on alternatives to open burning of agricultural waste. CES President and CEO, Keith Pronske, was invited to present in the “New and Emerging” technologies session on CES’ carbon negative energy systems that combine bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, known as BioCCS or BECCS, and opportunities for the state of California. 

The Central Valley Summit brings together Valley growers, researchers, experts, biomass industry representatives, scientists, representatives from new and developing technology vendors, and other Valley stakeholders to advance new and existing cost-effective clean alternatives to open burning of agricultural waste.  Learn more here:  www.valleyair.org/cvsummit/

CES Presents on Wood Waste to Power at A&WMA’s Annual Technical Conference in Bakersfield

The Golden Empire Chapter of the Air and Waste Management Association (A&WMA) held their 25th Annual Technical Conference this week in Bakersfield, California. The conference celebrated 25 years of progress and looked to a future of continued promotion of global environmental responsibility and increased effectiveness of organizations’ ability to make critical decisions that benefit society. Rebecca Hollis, CES’ Business Development Manager, presented on CES’ carbon negative biomass power cycle and how it could help solve multiple issues facing California’s Central Valley such as poor air quality, the disposal of large amounts of agricultural waste, and the revitalization of idled biomass resources.

CES is Conducting a Feasibility Study into the Development and Deployment of Carbon Negative "BioCCS" Power Plants

CES is investigating the deployment of new advanced carbon negative power plants into the California energy market. These plants use CES’ proven oxy-fuel combustion technology to burn a gasified biomass fuel to produce clean steam to power turbines.  The plant then captures and permanently sequesters more than 99% of the produced carbon, effectively pulling carbon dioxide from the air and cleaning the atmosphere. CES plans to first deploy a small-scale commercial “BioCCS” plant at its Kimberlina Facility located in the southern central valley before deploying a fleet of these new advanced carbon negative plants across the state.  To learn more about CES’ BioCCS development efforts see our carbon negative energy page.

CES Speaks at CEM7 Parallel Session on Carbon Management

CES was invited to speak at a parallel session to this year’s Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) on Carbon Management via carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). Hosted by the Global CCS Institute, the focus on the session was on “How CCUS Can Enable Renewables.” CES’ Business Development Manager, Rebecca Hollis, spoke on CES’ new carbon negative power cycle that combines bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, known as BioCCS or BECCS, and opportunities in the state of California. 

The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a forum of the world’s largest and most forward-leaning countries working together to accelerate the global transition to clean energy.  More information is available here:  cem7.org/
