As ART systems thermally convert biomass waste into energy, the syngas and heat generate revenue that can swiftly pay for purchasers’ capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX).
Users of our systems can take advantage of "feed-in-tariffs" (FITs), financial incentives offered by governments to encourage the adoption of renewable energy technologies. FITs typically include three key provisions: guaranteed grid access, long-term contracts, and pre-arranged purchase electricity prices. In addition, FIT-eligible energy providers receive investment incentives and guaranteed revenues. While the market for renewable energy is new, policymakers strongly back FITs.
Whereas many waste conversion facilities rely on electricity as their primary source of revenue, the ART business model uses electricity to pay for the CAPEX and OPEX, leaving Biochar sales to generate significant additional revenue, accelerate ROI, and boost profitability. The price of Biochar has soared over the last several years. Biochar converted into activated carbon commands the highest prices. Biochar can also generate income by securing carbon credits.
