Energy production


Energy production can be split in:

-     Oilshale / tar sand

-     Bio energy




Original the GPV technique was designed for breakdown off the organic components of sludge 

Due the efficient integrated heat exchanger, more then 80 % of the heat staid in the system.


30 % was used for heating up the incoming slurry.

50 % was used for cooling, hereby steam was produced for external purpose.

20 % was lost, because de outcomming slurry was warmer then the incoming.


( these values are depending on the length of the GPV, tube diameters and velocity of flow )


In Apeldoorn a GPV of 1200 meters was used.

Due the thermal expansion coefficient, the maximum heat is limited.

When a different detail is used, maximum temperature of 500 Degrees Celsius is possible


The GPV technique is specially designed for wet oxidation of low energy components.


Oilshale and  tar sand has a high percentage of minerals ( +/- 50 %) and cause by traditional burning techniques huge amount of pollution and CO2 outcome.

Due the minerals, the percentage of residue is big and the efficiency is small


In a special GPV, there is a wet oxidation of all the Carbon parts.

This excellent oxidation cause a outcome off almost 100 % CO2, which can be used for CCS or GPV carbonisation.







Innovation Concepts B.V. from the Netherlands has a different patent pending due the GPV technique and producing energy from Oil-shale residue and tar sand.


During the year 2011,  several tests will be profiled.

Innovation Concepts B.V. designed a special autoclave, which simulate the GPV process on Lab scale.
