The main focus of the BCF Africa is the Total Recover Facility plant development using modern technologies.
Using an uncommon background in the real construction and commissioning of waste-to-energy plants, our team provides the development. We deliver all stages of the development process, from green grass to commissioning. Having in our portfolio constructed and fully designed plants, our team performed as developers in more than a hundred projects. We have experience in pyrolysis, high-temperature pyrolysis, sorting and landfilling.
Turn garbage into clean energy with our state-of-the-art waste to energy plant
Our experience covers working with municipal solid waste (MSW) and hazardous industrial and medical waste. Technologies suitable for these types of waste are different and are subject to proper selection during the feasibility study. Long-term professional relationships with the leading EPC providers allow us to provide a proper estimation of the project efficiency. Such estimation is based on the given type of waste and its characteristics.
Project development is an entrepreneurial activity, subject to significant risks and unknowns while requiring ongoing Investment of time, financial, and even political resources toward output that consists of completed projects.
rior to embarking on the specifics of any particular project, it is essential to gauge the fundamental market characteristics that create the conditions for success and provide sufficient support to generate what we call "project motivation."
BCF Africa conducts an assessment prior to embarking on the specifics of any particular project, to gauge the fundamental market characteristics that create the conditions for success and provide sufficient support to generate what we call "project motivation. A motivated project is one that has a clear pathway to success and enough opportunity that it simply cannot be ignored. It is driven by some baseline need or interest in completing the project, the fundamental economics of energy in the area, existing policy environment (both internal and external to the project sponsor), and available commercial technologies and renewable resource. This assessment and communication of fundamental project motivation is referred to using the
acronym "BEPTCTM" for Baseline, Economics, Policy, Technology, and Consensus. Consensus with project stakeholders is ideally built around the four previous characteristics.
Science is now demonstrating that agriculture can be a primary solution to the problem of greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Conceptually it is quite simple... As it turns out, the most effective way to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels is through Mother Nature’s own process of photosynthesis and agriculture has the ability to assimilate CO2, which can potentially lead to carbon capture and storage. Carbon capture and storage (or sequestration)—known as CCS—is a process that involves capturing man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) and storing it. permanently underground. CCS could reduce the amount of CO2—an important greenhouse gas—emitted to the atmosphere
Plants remove carbon from the atmosphere.
Humans require oxygen to create and return carbon dioxide. Plants are the opposite, and pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and return oxygen. We use the captured Carbon Dioxide to enhance food security by releasing it in a controlled Produces growing environment. Aquaponics maximizes the amount of carbon stored while leaving the soil undisturbed. there’s a big potential to store a huge amount of carbon through high intensity Organic farming methods while also addressing food shortages in Sub-Saharan African.
An economical commercial process is needed to provide an incentive for the utility industries to engender win-win support for Governmental regulations on Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Current approach to mitigating CO2 emissions is carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) which involves CO2 capture followed by CO2 sequestration involving costly CO2 compression, transportation, underground storage and/or used for Crude Oil recovery from reservoirs.
Alternative proprietary patented processes, both non-catalytic process as well as a catalytic process, have been developed for mitigating CO2 emissions which solidifies the aims of both parties, i.e., industry and government. Both processes, the “non-catalytic” process and the “catalytic” process by BCF were developed for mitigating CO2 emissions from industrial plants by conversion to fuels. BCF’s patented CO2 conversion processes convert CO2 into Syngas (CO & H2) with further conversion to fuels such as Gasoline, Diesel, Jet Fuel, Hydrogen, Methanol, and/or Ethanol with established mature technologies. The patented technology for the conversion of CO2 to Syngas was developed by BCF and has patents on it. BCF’s proprietary “catalytic” technology is referred to as the patented BCF® process.
In society, there is a technical and commercial economic interest with the conversion of “waste solids to energy” such as electricity and fuels.
The management/treatment of Solid Wastes (SW) by thermal pyrolysis / gasification technology is increasingly viewed as the best suitable and economically viable approach for the management of wastes such as: Residential Waste (RW), Commercial Waste (CW), Industrial Waste (IW) and Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), which can be a mixture of these wastes. Various types of thermal processes using pyrolysis / gasification technology such as but not restricted to a Plasma Arc Gasification process as an attractive commercial viability. The various types of thermal processes based upon pyrolysis/gasification technology are: Pyrolysis, Pyrolysis/Gasification, Conventional Gasification, and Plasma Arc Gasification. These thermal gasification processes are carried out in an oxygen deficient atmosphere. One additional thermal process exists based upon combustion technology (an atmosphere of excess oxygen) and is known as Mass Burn (Incineration). A key product from these thermal gasification technologies is the conversion of MSW into a Syngas which is predominantly Carbon monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H2) which can be converted to energy (steam and/or electricity), other gases, fuels and/or chemicals.
Our population is still growing and we are producing more garbage, even with the recycling efforts in full operation. We have come to the ‘place in time’ that the momentum of “TECHNOLOGY” can help “protect human health and welfare” and thusly, the environment, by creating an infrastructure design, creation and building of sustainable MSW processes that can turn our WASTE PROBLEM into useful GREEN ENERGY for the betterment of ALL.
