Heetway is the leader in technology for replacing coal with clean sustainable biomass.
World coal consumption in 2016 was over 3.7 billion tons worth over $1 trillion. 41% of the world's electricity is supplied by coal. But coal is a dirty way to create energy. It emits unrecaptured carbon and sulfur into the atmosphere. The problem is that most of the world's power plants operate on coal. And replacing all of that capital infrastructure is expensive and takes time. It's so easy to just keep burning coal.
Enter Heetway. We replace coal with clean sustainable biomass that is processed in a way that makes it handle and burn like coal at existing power plants. Heetway Clean Energy Fuel literally replaces coal at existing power plants.
How does it work?
Started development with first generation pilot scale torrefaction equipment at 100 pounds per hour throughput rate.September, 2009
Developed demonstration plant with three 2nd Gen reactors (about 2 1/4 tons per hour)June, 2010
The plant is expanded with two larger, 3rd Gen reactors (about 3 to 4 tons per hour)November, 2011
From 2010 to 2016 the plant produces about 75,000 tons of torrefied pellets.October, 2017
From 2011 to 2016 - Supply multiple burn samples to various power companies for successful tests.November, 2016
2015-2016 -The plant produces about 120,000 tonnes of a unique blend of wood chips and torrefied wood.December, 1901
2016 - Supply of 4,000 tons to Portland General Electric for very successful test replacing coal with 100% torrefied pelletsNovember, 2016
2017 - Design 4th Gen reactors each about 3 tons per hour and HRTO, and continuous commercial size system for Hydrothermal Carbonization.November, 2017
