Technology to Dramatically Reduce Flare Emissions Demonstrated

Power+ Generator(TM) Offers Flaring Alternative for Oil & Gas, Wastewater Treatment and Landfills

RENO, NV--(Marketwired - November 11, 2015) - ElectraTherm, a leader in distributed, waste heat to power generation, completed a project in the Bakken oil field demonstrating how the Power+ Generator reduces flaring while generating low-emission electricity. The company partnered with the Environmentally Friendly Drilling Program, managed by the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), Gulf Coast Green Energy, and the Hess Corporation to operate ElectraTherm's Power+ Generator at a Hess oil well in North Dakota. The Power+ utilizes raw gas that would otherwise be flared to generate low-emission electricity. The same Power+ system can run on biogas at wastewater treatment plants and landfills to cost-effectively reduce flaring and emissions while generating clean electricity.

In North Dakota, both the state regulators and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) are pushing to reduce open flaring of natural gas. The Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR) conducted research and collected data from the Hess test site in the Bakken Shale during September 2015. The data was part of an emissions research study for comparing emissions from the Power+ system to the emissions from open flaring.

According to the report, "It is important to note that the emissions from the Power+ Generator system's boiler are lower (comparatively less harmful to the environment) and would provide the added utility of power generated for use from the raw gas or fuel gas which would otherwise be wasted." The report includes the percentage of reduced emissions as a result of the Power+ Generator, with an 89% reduction in CO, 48% reduction in NOX and 93% reduction in VOCs.

Percent Reduction in Emissions

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CO                                    -89%                                  
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOX                                   -48%                                  
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
VOCs                                  -93%                                  
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The report concludes "The real benefit is the power generated by raw gas or fuel gas which would otherwise be wasted by open flaring. Furthermore, this new technology would meet the goals of the US EPA and North Dakota."

ElectraTherm's Power+ Generators utilize waste heat on applications such as internal combustion engines, biomass, geothermal, and methane utilization at wastewater treatment plants and oil & gas fields. In greenfield applications, the Power+ Generator can replace the radiator, acting as a "Radiator with a Payback." ElectraTherm's Power+ fleet of 50+ global installations have exceeded 50 years of continuous operation (more than 455,000 hours), and 10 million kWh generated. A list of reference sites is currently available on the website.
