Startech Environmental Hydrogen Fueled Electricity Powered Up At Tech Center

"From wastes used as feed-stocks, the Plasma Converter (pictured) can actually be the source of Startech Hydrogen on-site and in-house for our customers. - Joseph F. Longo.

Startech Environmental has announced that its hydrogen-fueled engine producing electricity is operational and available for demonstrations at Startech's Tech Center in Bristol, Connecticut.

Joseph F. Longo, Startech's president, said "The line-up has started for demonstrations for our Customers, Distributors, Sales Representatives and also for the media. They're going to like what they see.

"The Company plans to produce and market its Carbonless Power System for 'Green Electricity' in stationary facilities. We think it is important to appreciate the fact that the Hydrogen-engine is a combination of the engine and the electric generator in one modular-package. It's not a fuel cell; it is a robust internal-combustion reciprocal-engine very much like the well-proven engine in your vehicle.

"Startech Hydrogen, derived by our StarCell(TM) system from processing a wide variety of wastes in the Startech Plasma Converter(TM), is an excellent, pristine fuel to power the Hydrogen-engine for electricity. Even ordinary household waste, the most ubiquitous of all, is an excellent source of Startech Hydrogen.

"While developments of hydrogen-powered vehicles are still progressing and talked about, there is a compelling need and desire from our customers for a parallel initiative to bring clean, hydrogen-fueled, stationary-electrical- power to the market.

"Paradoxically, hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, but it is not readily available on earth, and has to be produced by chemical- industry manufacturing systems. Hydrogen is a very important ingredient in many commercial and industrial products. Our Plasma Converter System (PCS)(TM), in processing most wastes, produces a synthesis gas that we named Plasma Converted Gas (PCG)(TM). With many wastes, the hydrogen in the PCG, can be separated as a pristine fuel within our Carbonless Power System. This Startech Hydrogen can fuel engine-generators to produce 'Green Electricity.'

"From wastes used as feed-stocks, the Plasma Converter can actually be the source of Startech Hydrogen on-site and in-house for our customers.

"When hydrogen, as a fuel, combines with air, the principal resulting product is H2O, water. No carbon dioxide (CO2) results in the combustion process since there are no carbons in hydrogen. With its roots in the Kyoto Protocol, the burgeoning Carbon-Credit market and its focus on 'low-carbon- footprints,' means that this 'green' stationary electrical power will not be merely a 'low-carbon-footprint;' it will be a 'No-Carbon-Footprint.'

"Last year, the Company successfully completed a three-year contract for the US Department of Energy, in its Hydrogen Initiative Program, in a comprehensive program demonstrating the production of hydrogen from processing wastes in the Plasma Converter followed by our StarCell system. StarCell is the Company's proprietary membrane-technology system that separates the hydrogen from the PCG synthesis gas produced by the Plasma Converter System.

"Energy crisis or not, waste has been and always will be with us."
