TECHNOLOGY:  

Amorphous Alloys for Waste-to-Energy (WTE) applications

AFFILIATION:   LM Group Holdings, Inc. (“LMGH”), Lake Forest, California, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Advanced Materials
Area: Other
Tech Readiness: TRL 4

Tech Brief: LMGH coupled with our partners (CCNY and Foster Wheeler) are proposing a program to improve WTE boilers performance by using unique amorphous metal coatings. We are confident that our proprietary amorphous metal coatings will not only increase the design life but also increase the efficiency and output of WTE Plants.

Value Proposition: As the nation’s largest consumer of energy, the Department of Defense (DOD) has become a leader in developing American energy (DOD consumed 3.8 billion kWh of electricity at a cost of over $3.5 billion in addition to over 100 million barrels of fuel). As part of that leadership, DOD has committed to obtain 25% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025. One of these renewable energy sources is WTE. These facilities produce renewable energy by reducing waste volume by 90%, making them the most advanced technology to manage the waste not only for municipal communities but also for DoD. For example, the Huntsville WTE facility can deliver up to 400,000lbs/hr of uninterruptible steam to the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal. Through our years of experience with early stage technologies, we believe that with our amorphous coating solution we would offer 5X the life/performance at 2X lower costs compared to conventional coating solutions for the WTE industry. In addition, it will enable our assets to last much longer; help reduce CO2 emissions caused during manufacturing of metal and composites, directly and indirectly lead to reduced energy consumption, and lead to massive economic savings.
