West Coast NRG (NRG) receives the Syngas off-take produced by West Coast Energy’s waste to renewables production facility. This off-take is in the upgraded form of:
- Renewable Hydrogen
- Renewable Natural Gas
- Renewable Dimethyl Ether (rDME).
Hydrogen is the simplest element on earth—it consists of only one proton and one electron—and it is an energy carrier, not an energy source. Hydrogen can store and deliver usable energy, but it doesn’t typically exist by itself in nature and must be produced from compounds that contain it.
3-types of Hydrogen:
- Green Hydrogen
- Blue Hydrogen
- Grey Hydrogen
WCE produces Green Hydrogen, from waste-derived Syngas.
NRG produces Blue Hydrogen from Natural Gas, with Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS)
Demand for Green and Blue Hydrogen far exceeds Supply for the foreseeable future.
Target market for Renewable Hydrogen:
- Allocate directly into the Natural Gas Transmission Line located on the NRG property.
- The wholesale hydrogen distribution market.
Renewable Natural Gas
Renewable Natural Gas is a combustible, gaseous mixture of simple hydrocarbon compounds, primarily methane. With the move toward renewables, we see growing opportunities in the sales of renewable natural gas.
Renewable Natural Gas provides 60-90% less smog-producing pollutants and 30-40% less greenhouse gas emissions as compared to fossil fuels. Target market:
- Natural Gas Municipal Fleets/Transit Buses.
- 60 percent of California buses now run on compressed natural gas, or CNG, compared with 17 percent nationwide.
Renewable Dimethyl Ether (rDME)
DME has been used for decades as an energy source in China, Japan, Korea, Egypt, and Brazil. West Coast Energy produces Syngas from waste. rDME can be made from a range of options that can make it extremely competitive compared to traditional diesel.
Renewable Dimethyl Ether (rDME) is a powerful, enabling molecule that can range from being ultra-low carbon to carbon negative. DME is approved as a renewable fuel under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Renewable Fuels Standard, making it eligible for RINs credits
