BTOLA modifies an existing / proven gas turbine designed to use expensive fuels like natural gas, diesel or kerosene and converts it to the BTOLA system. This is done using BTOLA proprietary combustion chamber and heat exchanger systems and allows the turbine to run on renewable, low greenhouse, cheaper fuels and waste products while maintaining the low maintenance and reliability of the turbine engine.
Key features of the technology are:
BTOLA has been selectively propagating a PennisetumPurpureum hybrids “Bana Grass” since 2008. The BTOLA Bana grass selection has the following desirable attributes making it an excellent choice as an energy crop.
BTOLA is creating synthetic crude oil projects
BTOLA is leading the way and has developed Indirectly Fired Gas Turbine (IFGT) engine technology to generate electricity from biomass, waste products and BTOLA’s own biomass energy crop. This technology lowers the CAPEX and OPEX of generations systems under 10 MW by as much as 75%.
BTOLA Pty Ltd has developed high yielding energy crops specifically for conversion into conventional transport fuels. This year BTOLA will be planting out sufficient energy crop to yield approximately 15,000 tons of biomass that could be converted into 4,000 ton of conventional fuels.
