Alternative & Renewable Energy
Hydra Renewable Resources, Inc. presents a powerful alternative to the perpetual cost sink of traditional, municipally funded, solid – garbage – and liquid – sewage – waste management programs. Hydra offers a unique Design, Finance, Build, Own, Operate and, on a 30 year term, Transfer (DFBOOT) approach.
The Hydra IWR2MTM (Integrated Resource & Recovery Management) system, financed in the private sector, provides significant net financial benefit to the community at no cost to the public purse while allowing Hydra to harvest the inherent resources in the waste streams and realize very considerable financial benefit over the 30 year term.
Hydra’s IWR2M system is designed to mitigate both operational and investment risk by employing only field proven state-of-the-art technologies. The Hydra integrated system, including Waste to Energy (W2e), Water Recovery, District Energy and Greenhouses, is positioned at the nexus of the world’s energy, water and food markets.
While unique in its configuration, IWR2M has been designed to operate such that each component feeds naturally to the next without providing adverse or unknown effect. The design has been extensively reviewed by Hydra’s partners Mace Group, and Forman Roberts, as well as engineers from Thames Water and Severn Trent in the UK. Typical cash return to our community “partner” through land lease and investment in sewerage infrastructure etc., will approach $US 500 – $US 750 million over the agreement term.
The Corporation has secured commitments from municipalities around the globe, including Asia, the Middle East, USA and the Caribbean, to begin implementation of the IWR2M system.
Hydra’s returns are very substantial.
Products / Services
Waste Managment Solution
The IWR2M system generates renewable diesel fuel and electricity from garbage in addition to “char”, a fuel used by cement kilns. There are no residuals. From the “used water”or sewage we generate re-useable water (NEWwater) and energy in support of a closed loop district energy system (DES). The energy is harvested from the latent thermal energy in the treated water stream 1-3 MW / million gallons per day of wastewater flow. With NEWwater we irrigate greenhouses, harvesting vegetable food stuff in substantial quantities, 45,000 tonnes/year and the purest potable water 800 million Litre/yr.
