Electricity for remote areas using organic waste

Home

Problem Statement

High cost to generate electricity using diesel generator set


Remote areas such as native houses away from villages and islands are out of the grid electrical power lines and they depend on diesel generator set. There are several problems to this scenario. The high cost of electrical generation using diesel. The limited use of hours that power generator can take. Environment degradation of using and storage of diesel.

There is also a secondary problem that these households in these remote areas are facing. The accumulation of waste and the use of land areas to discard the waste.

Solution Statement

UM's mini Bioreactor Hydrogen System


Conversion of organic waste into hydrogen. In turn the hydrogen will be converted into electricity through burning of the hydrogen. All these will be compartmentalized within UM's product called Bioreactor Unit for Hydrogen Production. The logic behind is the system patented design using anaerobic reaction for the organic waste.
