MEEC TO START BIOPOLYGEN PROJECT

MEEC Group is inviting to strategic partnership in commercialization of a new technology for production of the second generation biofuel from forestry and agricultural residues

KIRYAT-ONO, IL, June 15, 2007 - Mediterranean Energy and Ecology Center (MEEC, Israel) is initiating the adaptation and succeeding commercialization of its simple and high efficient technology of processing the lignocellulosic materials (mainly, residues from forestry and agriculture), which has been previously developed and proven for production of the high-quality supplements to ruminants feed, to production of second generation biofuel (bioethanol) as well.


It is expected, that a new technology can provoke a strong competition to the presently employed technologies based on treatment of cultivated cultures (corn, sugar-cane, et al.) and be a basis of decentralized energy supply of the different remote regions within the framework of international and national programmes on production and rational use of the local biofuels. It is also suggested to establish a consortium of the companies and organizations interested in joint realization of the new BIOPOLYGEN project on combined treatment of the residues from forestry and agriculture in the context of the EU Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (2007-2013) or other similar programmes and initiatives .

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
