Sustainable Renewable Energy Utility Systems
We see a world where toxic emissions from energy generation no longer exist, where millions of gallons of contaminated water are made pure and drinkable every day, and where the basic building blocks of life and economies are readily accessible.
SREUS builds cost-effective Sustainable Renewable Energy Utility Systems that produce electricity and clean water from sewage, biofuels, oil well production water, and gas.
SREUS Systems are maintenance-friendly and offer low operating costs, and provide an economic and environmentally effective alternative to current fuel options.
Frequently Asked Questions
SREUS technology dissolves waste in high-temperature, high-pressure water, then adds adds air to start an oxidation reaction that breaks down hydrocarbon chains, producing heat and purified water.
See our "How It Works" page!
Yes! So here is the crazy thing, the cost of electricity, including capital installation costs, from diesel is $0.32 with on-grid costs amounting to $0.13. The cost of electricity using a SREUS unit is $.0.09, with the added benefits of reduced facility costs in water treatment and waste removal.
The SREUS system can use traditional fuels such as gas and diesel, but it can also be fed plant matter, agricultural waste, biofuels and gases, oil well production water, sewage, landfill waste, plastics, paper, rubber, food processing waste, and other organic material. Basically most anything that contains BTU (unit of heat) value.
Our systems give off zero toxic emissions, create essential outputs such as energy and clean water, and use waste as fuel. They operate in a relatively small format, and depending on the industry, generally pay for themselves in 1-3 years.
The SREUS 200 kW system has been designed for a 20 year plus life.
Yes! The water removed is RO grade distilled water, meaning it is MUCH cleaner than your tap water.
It will actually decrease the greenhouse gases that would be emitted if the waste was just dumped. The amount of decrease depends on the fuel used in the SREUS unit—sewage, sewage gas, bio-matter, bio-gas, paper, and plant material, are all carbon neutral (meaning they don't increase greenhouse gases).
The CO2 output from a SREUS unit is 25 times less potent as a greenhouse gas than methane coming from rotting garbage in landfills, and methane released from coal and oil beds. When you are hauling diesel or other fossil fuels the engines produce CO2 produced in transporting diesel, coal, and other fossil fuels.
SREUS uses a mix of existing and new technology. Some of the existing techechnology used are alternators, condensers, control systems, cyclonic separation, and reverse osmosis. New technology includes our newly developed intellectual property consisting of our charger for fuel compression, charger for air compression, cyclonic supercritical water oxidation reactor, supercritical water power generation, and the SREUS energy system.
Surprisingly, no! Precision Systems Engineering, a heavy industrial engineering firm, has partnered with SREUS to develop this technology to complete the mass-energy balance calculations to figure out how much fuel we need to burn to continue the oxidation reactions and convert some of that heat into usable electricity.
The oxidation reaction produces large amounts of heat. Many types of unrefined fuels can be fed into the reactor such that any hydrocarbon can be reacted. From crude oil, natural or diesel gas, shredded corn husks, grasses, sewage, and even bio waste streams — such as process water from dairies — can all be fed into the reactor.
Generally incinerating trash creates toxic and carcinogenic emissions, but the SREUS system destroys ALL toxic emissions.
- Scrubbed Air and CO2
- Zero (0) Sulfur Dioxides—no smog or acid rain
- Zero (0) Hydrocarbon soot
- Zero (0) toxic or carcinogenic airborne emissions
The SREUS system provides an opportunity for toxic waste management.
No, once it is put through the SREUS unit its broken down to its smallest molecular compounds which have no smell.
