My entire career has involved development and sale of new products to satisfy growing demands: lithium batteries just when the technology was being introduced, advanced aircraft safety products, novel respiratory and protective solutions for first responders in an era of new threats, and now the greatest opportunity in my career.
BRASH is true to its name: it is a bold undertaking, but the conventional wisdom in power generation has had too long a hold. Conventional internal combustion (IC) engines are too complex and costly in emissions and reliance on highly refined fuels. A BRASH external combustion engine provides power from a wide variety of fuels, including solid biomass, and provides power without NOx/SOx emissions.
In vehicle applications, exhaust heat can be harvested to generate useful power. In buildings, BRASH can provide heat and power in the space of the furnace it replaces, allowing utilities the first true scalable solution for Distributed Generation, or DG.
BRASH is Binary Recovery Air-Steam Hybrid technology, but more importantly, we have the means to reduce grid demand in a utility-managed environment, and provide vehicle power from less refined, biomass sources.
