In my last articles, I wrote about #AnaShell – a green hero who dedicated her life for the good of the Earth. I also wrote about one of her Fund projects that she finances – NRGLab company that researches & develops alternative-energy technologies for clean, reliable & affordable electrical power on a global scale. The Company is currently into development & modification of gasification technology to get the main target – so that Rice Husk/Coal/Gas/APG could be processed into energy & fuel.
Zeev Drori leads company laboratory in Israel & is involved into six projects of #NRGLab. One of them is connected with processing of natural gas into Gasoline/Cheap electricity. Actually, Mr Drori is one of the inventors of gas turbine. In one of his articles called Seasonality in Gas Production & Consumption, he explained in details the advantages of NRGLab new technology.
Did you know that a special characteristic of gas as fuel is its seasonality, or irregularity in consumption?
"In summer, a decrease in consumption leads to a drop in demand, while in winter, demand is extremely high. This inconsistency does not concur with gas production, which is in constant volume; moreover, gas storage can be quite problematic.
Different countries solve this problem in different ways. In Germany, for instance, there are stations for gas liquefaction. In spite of the fact that a significant amount of gas is lost in this process, liquefaction allows governments to even out seasonal peaks in gas consumption. In Ukraine, there are underground gas storage facilities (salt mines), where gas is injected under pressure during summer months."
And here NRGLab is proposing a new method of natural gas damping. What is its advantage?
This method helps derive synthetic gasoline from natural gas, while generating electricity at the same time. Moreover, ‘"NRGLab equipment allows for obtaining synthetic gasoline with Euro-5 environmental characteristics & enables the generation of an unlimited amount of electricity."
To make it all clearer, #ZeevDrori provides us with 2 tables:
Why is this technology so unique?
That's because gasoline & electricity can now be produced from one continuous, uninterrupted process! Isn’t it amazing? "Specifically, it's possible to generate additional #electricity by decreasing the share of gasoline produced" mentioned Mr Drori - "However, the reverse process, i.e. an increase of #gasoline share by decreasing the electricity share, is not attainable. In this case, electricity is a by-product of producing gasoline from natural gas.
Synthetic gasoline obtained from natural gas is easily stored & transported. In view of its caloricity, its value is equivocal to the value of its input materials, i.e. nature gas. NRGLab Pte Ltd is looking for a strategic partner for this exclusive business."
