Carbon Intensity (CI)
- Carbon Intensity is the measure of the amount of CO2 produced per dollar of GDP. Per the United States Department of Energy, the CI in the US has decreased by an average of 21% between the years 2000 and 2015.
- But even with this positive trend, at 16.7 MT/person, the US is still a higher emitter of CO2 per capita than most other developed countries.
GMP navigates design requirements for clients who are looking to minimize the CI score for their projects.
Carbon Capture + Carbon Sequestration
- Many chemical processes result in the generation of CO2
- Many chemical processes require the removal of CO2 from the process streams
- In order to turn H2 projects from Grey to Blue, the CO2 released in production must be captured and stored
- The removal and storage of the CO2 adds complication and expense that must be incorporated into project planning early in the design phase
GMP provides guidance for clients interested in implementing Carbon Capturing and Sequestration into their plant design.
Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)
- California’s LCFS Program has many companies vying to get their sustainable fuel products into the California fuel market
- This has resulted in a strong surge in Renewable Fuels projects
GMP can advise clients interested in pursuing projects that will qualify for participation in the LCFS Program.
- Gasification can be utilized to convert numerous carbon-based raw materials into a synthesis gas:
- Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
- Forest Products / Biomass
- Cracking or Fracking tail gas
- The produced synthesis gas can be used for the production of a number of chemicals and products:
- Synthetic Natural Gas
- Liquid Fuels
GMP has deep expertise to offer clients preparing to utilize Gasification for the processing of a variety of feedstocks for the creation of numerous products.
