Franklin Renewable Energy is to test new high-temperature ceramic filter technology at the University of Tennessee.
Aid-supported research allows Enesor Bio Energy to provide information on ceramic fiber used in electrical, thermal and sound protection units.
The driver is energy efficient and cost-effective to use ceramic fiber – it dissipates less heat when it can withstand high temperatures.
Iniesor’s product, bio-CHP, oxidizes organic waste to dissipate waste into renewable energy.
The idea is to stop and compensate for harmful emissions, instead of transporting garbage to a sewage treatment plant and sitting there.
Each section of a 20-foot container can reduce emissions by up to 2,200 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. That equates to taking about 480 passenger cars off the road for a year.
“We are thrilled to be working with UT and Dr. Penumadu to try and improve the ceramic filtering technologies we have created,” said Lee Jasting, founder and CEO of Enesor.
UT Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Diacar Penumadu said strength testing and gas flow analysis will help accelerate the development of the technology.
»[The research] “These filters will greatly improve the chances of success and speed up business,” Penumadu said in a statement. “In the Enesor renewable energy system and for other commercial applications.”
Ceramic fiber technology is being tested by RevV in a program between Tennessee State, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Ute Knoxville.
