Great News for an SB-Cal Member!!

A Small Business California member  has been awarded the challenge to demonstrate to GE and the Canadian province of Alberta how efficiently natural gas can be consumed. See below information from Sid about this .

Sidel Systems USA from Atascadero has for over 30 years focused at increasing their clients natural gas energy efficiency. Natural gas is considered to be America's clean fossil fuel energy source. Because it is considered clean it is mostly ignored by governments and industry. It is an unseen fuel, unlike oil and coal. Natural gas enters into a building through a small pipe (gas line) and leaves the building in a bigger pipe (a chimney). Not many ever go up onto the roof to determine what might be leaving their chimney.

America's commercial buildings and industry and the electricity producing power plants in 2014 consumed approx. 19 Trillion cu.ft. of natural gas. Of that amount somewhere between 40% and 60% of that combusted natural gas energy was wasted. It was blown up chimneys across the country as Hot exhaust into the atmosphere.
Natural gas, our clean energy source can be consumed to near 100% energy efficiency. It's being done in the residential market.

The world wants to win the battle against Climate Change?
Increased natural gas energy efficiency = Reduced Global Warming
Increased natural gas energy efficiency = Reduced CO2 Emissions
Increased natural gas energy efficiency = Water Conservation

The Alberta Oil Sands in Fort McMurray, Alberta is considered to be North America's largest single source contaminator to the environment. This industry provides to Alberta a lot of high paying jobs and Canada with a lot of income and America with a lot of oil.
To get to this oil in the ground, large natural gas Once Through Steam Generators are used to produce a whole lot of steam that is injected into the ground to soften the oil so it will flow to be collected. These boilers vent a lot of combusted natural gas exhaust into the atmosphere. The province of Alberta and GE have teamed up together and put out a challenge to companies around the world to help them find a way to increase the efficiency of these large natural gas appliances. Sidel Systems USA Inc. and our Condensing Flue Gas Heat Recovery units have been doing this precise practice for over 30 years. We applied to the Challenge and were accepted through round 1 and are now winners of round 2.

Not only is this project exciting, but it gives Sidel Systems the opportunity to work with the engineers from GE, and the administration and engineers of the province of Alberta, with the goal of increasing their natural gas energy efficiency not only in Ft McMurray but across the province at their commercial buildings and industries. Being in a northern climate their degree heating days are much more than California.

Natural gas maybe North America's clean fossil fuel but there is still a lot of CO2 in this combusted exhaust. The US Department of Energy states that for every 1 million Btu's of heat energy that is recovered from the combusted exhaust and is utilized, 117 lbs of CO2 will Not be put into the atmosphere. At these large commercial and industrial natural gas consumption locations, this adds up into many tons per day.

California needs to also recognize this opportunity.

                   Have a Fantastic Day!
What natural gas is not wasted today, will be there to be used another day.
