The first commercial Omni Processor (OP), Model S200, will be a stationary combined heat and power plant that converts fecal sludge and other combustible waste streams into electricity, potable water, and ash. The heat from combustion within a fluidized sand bed is utilized to generate high pressure steam that is expanded in a reciprocating piston steam engine connected to a generator, producing electricity. The exhaust from this engine (process heat) is used to dry the incoming fecal sludge. The water that is evaporated out of the sludge is then treated to meet clean drinking water standards. The combustion gases are treated as necessary to meet local emission standards.
The OP will be connected to the internet and remotely monitored and operated by a central command center. This will provide technical expertise to each unit without requiring technical expertise physically at each unit. Additionally, this will provide access to software upgrades for the customer continually increasing the performance of their unit.
