Green energy calculation - biogenic power rate

Carbon atoms have 3 isotops, with mass 12, 13 and 14. Cosmic radiation creates C14  in the atmosphere. Recent CO2 carbon sources (age < 100 years), like biomass have a C14 level that is equal the average C14 value of the atmosphere. Fossile CO2 sources (age > 600.000 years) have a C14 level of zero.

To measure the biogenic fraction of CO2 sources, the PmCTrace extracts a representative sample from the stack, proportional to the stack gas velocity. It can be used for short time sampling as well as to sample over 1 month.

After 1 month sampling, the cartridge is transported to a C14 laboratory, where the sample is evaluated for pmc value (parts of modern carbon).

Own developments

We have developed a method,where the age of the biomass is included in the reference value for 100% biomass, to increase the accuracy, especially in the range of 90% biomass and higher. We have developed a cartridges, which is simple and safe to transport and safe and reliable in use.

Long time experience

The PmcTrace was developed 8 years ago. It was validated at several cement plants 5 years ago. 3 years ago, Genius5-Instruments was founded to produce and distribute the PmCtrace for the purpose of green enery calculation, to push the use of green energy.The present owner has 24 years experience with the design and installation of long term sampling systems and sampling cartridges in

  • waste incinerators
  • hazardous waste incinerators
  • cement plants
  • sinter plants

Therefore the PmCtrace can be used for all of these users of green energy as a tool box to increase the percentage of green energy.

We will be happy to provide an interesting offer, Leasing or Sales.
