Muradel's target market for the Green2Black™ process is the international municipal and agricultural wastewater industry. Any wastewater treatment plant, or group of plants, that aggregate greater than 500 dry-weight tonnes of either primary and secondary sludges can readily accommodate Green2Black™. Whether it be a conventional or advanced wastewater treatment plant Green2Black™ can be readily integrated. Typically Green2Black™ would require a footprint of < 1 hectare, but can be configured to suit most situations. The products produced from Green2Black™ using sludge's and biosolids as feedstock would include biocrude oil, fertilizers, pure CO2 and lightweight aggregates. The biocrude oil produced by Muradel can be fractionated to produce the complete spectrum of fuel products normally produced from a barrel of crude oil. The fertilizers are readily sold into the market, and the lightweight aggregates can be used in concretes or filler in composting processes. The CO2 produced is of high purity (>98% v/v) and has a wide range of uses. Green2Black™ provides a sustainable, long-term and cost-effective option for managing sludge's and biosolids by converting them into commodities.
Two solutions in one! Green2Black™ combines sustainable sludge and biosolids management and the production of renewable biocrude oils within an integrated end-to-end process. Our unique solution centres on a continuous sub-critical water reaction that liquefies organic based feedstocks and converts them into sustainable biocrude oils. The major advantage that we offer is the ability to work with wet feedstocks with high solids concentrations. There is no need for drying the sludges and disposal is not required. For wastewater treatment managers challenged by sludges and biosolids disposal our product is an integrated technological process providing a truly sustainable solution, both economically and environmentally. Up to 20% IRR can be achieved in producing 25ML of biocrude oil per annum.
