W2 Energy Biodiesel Test Production Underway (Ind. Report)
In Cambridge, Ontario, green technology specialist W2 Energy has begun production of biodiesel in small 'test" batches.
After testing various small quantities of feedstocks, the plant will produce ASTM specification fuel on a consistent basis. The company plans to ramp up production to a maximum of 7,500 litres of waste vegetable oil per day, then double that capacity to 15,000 litres per day. The company will then apply for a Government of Canada biofuel production subsidy. (Source: W2 Energy, Others, Biofuels Int'l, 28 April, 2014) Contact: W2 Energy, www.w2energy.com

W2 Energy Receives Botswana Commitment for CTL Prototype Plant (Int'l, Ind. Report)
W2 Energy, Inc. reports the immediate development of a $5 million, 1,000 gpd Coal/Waste to Liquid (CTL) prototype plant capable of producing 10 ton/day coal/waste synthetic fuel production in Selebi-Phikwe, Botswana.
Using EGM's Enhanced Fuel Refinery System production could reach 2,000 gpd and yield
approximately $2,686,000 per year. Those estimates are for fuel production only and do not take into consideration any power produced by the plant.
W2 Energy Inc. develops renewable energy technologies and applies it to new generation power systems. Specifically, W2 Energy's plasma assisted biomass to energy plants utilize state of the art technologies to produce green energy both fuel (sulfur free diesel) and electricity at the most efficient cost in capital investment and production per/barrel, per/Megawatt. W2 Energy Inc. owns a large technology portfolio of patents and know-how that has been extensively validated and ready for commercial production. (Source: W@ Energy, 20 June, 2012) Contact:

W2 Acquires Agri-Green Biodiesel , Assumes Corporate Debt (M&A)
W2 Energy.Agri-Green Biodiesel
In Canada, W2 Energy has completed its purchase of Agri-Green Biodiesel. After signing a Letter of Intent in May 2010 (see archives for details) to purchase a 60% interest, the purchase has expanded to 100% in exchange for the assumption of Agri-Green's corporate debt. W2 Energy CEO Mike McLaren said of the purchase, "We consider this acquisition of Agri-Green a strategic opportunity for us, because of our ability to produce biodiesel less expensively by using our low-temperature plasma technology. We can use W2 Energy's NT Plasmatron and MultiFuel gas-to-liquid reactor to make its own methanol, electricity and heat from waste sources, thereby reducing the costs of the methanol used in the biodiesel process."

W2 Developing Energy-Storage System Engine (New Prod. & Tech.)
W2 Energy,Solon,Tucson Electric Power
Carson City, Nevada-based W2 Energy Inc. reports that it is working on a second-generation engine system for an Arizona Research Institute for Solar Energy (AzRISE) compressed-air energy-storage (CAES) system that will be deployed at the University of Arizona Science and Technology Park in Tucson, Ariz. The CAES system will be connected to a 1.6 MW solar plant built by Solon for Tucson Electric Power (TEP).
The project has taken longer than expected due to delays in the storage tank's delivery to AzRISE, according to W2 Energy. The company also redesigned the engine system several times in order to incorporate new ideas discovered during testing.
"While W2 Energy and AzRISE have not met some of their targets for technology deployment and testing, both parties, as well as their partners TEP and Solon, remain committed to proving the viability of compressed air as a storage medium for renewable and conventionally produced electricity," says Joe Simmons, director of AzRISE.
