SmartEnergyTechnology and ZeroEmissionTechnology

At last, infinitely sustainable energy.

Clean energy, always available, no limits, no emissions. EXYTRON’s SmartEnergyTechnology and ZeroEmissionTechnology cause neither CO2 emissions, nor nitrogen oxides or fine dust. As decentralised energy supply systems with a high degree of self-sufficiency, they use only renewable energies and are unrivalled in terms of economic efficiency thanks to smart control and a utilisation rate of over 90%.

SmartEnergyTechnology

EXYTRON’s patented energy supply system provides users with renewable energy in the form of electricity, heating and cooling at all times and thus reliably covers individual requirements. The self-generated energy from PV or wind power plants is 100% decentralised and used locally. The storage of large amounts of renewable electricity, which has been problematic in the past, is now being achieved by highly efficient power-to-gas and power-to-x plants. From hydrogen and carbon dioxide, EXYTRON catalysts produce regenerative fuels such as methane (natural gas), liquid gas, methanol, paraffin and others. This means that energy can be stored without limit and is reliably available in the absence of wind or in darkness.

ZeroEmissionTechnology

As the heart of SmartEnergyTechnology, ZeroEmissionTechnology ensures emission-free combustion of the regenerative fuels produced in-house: CO2 is not released into the environment, but stored temporarily and used again and again as a necessary recyclable material in a closed cycle for the production of fuels. Moreover, modified combustion does not produce nitrogen oxides and fine dust, nor is the extremely environmentally harmful methane slip possible.

Hydrogen in its optimum form

So-called “green hydrogen” has been produced by electrolysis (the splitting of water into its components hydrogen and oxygen) using green electricity for many years. However, due to its low energy density, the high safety requirements for the plants and the very high costs of hydrogen technologies and the lack of infrastructure, it has not yet been able to establish itself on the market. EXYTRON has eliminated these disadvantages related to hydrogen through an innovative direct conversion into methane and it can therefore use well-known and proven devices from natural gas technology, e.g. commercially available CHPs, natural gas heaters, etc. This significantly reduces the costs and safety requirements of the plants and can also be used for the conversion of existing buildings.

No Limits – EXYTRON Energy Factories

EXYTRON’s systems have an unlimited scalability. In the area of building supply, residential complexes, commercial enterprises and even entire city districts are in the planning stage. Moreover, the planning of a unique project for the self-sufficient and emission-free supply of an entire village including an industrial estate and the additional production of regenerative fuels began as early as 2017. Electrolysers with a capacity of 10 MW use, among other things, electricity from old wind power plants; the alternative to which would have been to demolish them after the feed-in tariffs expired following 20 years of the EEG. CO2 from biogas plants is used to produce the fuels, which would be emitted into the atmosphere without this use.

EXYTRON’s energy factories use these resources and generate sustainable electricity, heat and cooling as well as green, emission-neutral fuels, e.g. for ships, railways, and heavy goods traffic, thus implementing the sector coupling of the electricity, heating and mobility sectors with emission-free technologies.

EXYTRON’s vision is to help save our blue planet. For this purpose, EXYTRON has established a research and development department at its Rostock site, which focuses on the development of emission-free energy supply systems and eliminates 100% of emissions from fossil fuels. At the same time, these systems must be economical in order to prevail in the market against environmentally harmful energies that remain cost-effective.

In future, EXYTRON’s developments within the three sectors of the energy industry – electricity, heating and mobility – should make it possible to cover energy requirements from sustainable energy sources while completely dispensing with fossil fuels. In the following video, you will learn how EXYTRON meets this challenge:

The patented closed circuit of EXYTRON systems

Pure energy on its own.

EXYTRON is one of the few system providers worldwide of energy supply systems based solely on renewable energies. This means that our plants supply our customers with the entire demand for electricity, heating and cooling.

EXYTRON plans, supplies and installs turnkey systems which are individually designed and economically optimised to meet the customer’s requirements.

The times when electricity or heat was made marginally more sustainable by implementing a piecemeal and uncoordinated approach using a wide variety of technologies and components are over. EXYTRON has arrived: we take care of your energy needs. Simply enjoy your sustainable heat and green electricity with a clear conscience. At any time – emission-free – decentralised – independent.

Unique: CO2 as a reused material

Unique in this worldwide patented system is the CO2 closed cycle. In the so-called Sabatier reaction of catalysts, hydrogen (H2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) combine to form methane (CH4), i.e. synthetic natural gas. This hydrocarbon has a much higher energy content and is much easier to handle than hydrogen itself. CO2 is therefore a valuable raw material for the production of methane. In EXYTRON’s decentralised plants, the CO2 produced during the combustion of the gas produced in-house is not released into the environment through the chimney, but is stored and reused to produce new methane. It is therefore in a closed cycle and combustion has been developed which does not pollute the environment. By additionally using the oxygen from the electrolysis and a modified combustion, no other harmful substances such as nitrogen oxides, fine dust or methane slip are released into the environment. EXYTRON systems provide an all-round clean solution:

Think Big – EXYTRON Energy Factories EXYTRON flame

EXYTRON’s technologies can be scaled up to almost any size. However, the decentralised character of the plants should always be maintained. This means that electricity should be used where it is generated. An EXYTRON energy factory can be created in projects where large capacities of green electricity are generated in addition to the energy supply with emission-free SmartEnergyTechnology. Not only are extremely favourable electricity and heat tariffs offered at these locations, but the additional production of regenerative fuels also generates the emission-neutral fuels of the future. Favourable locations include wind power plant sites (both new and old plants after the end of the EEG support period can be used) and PV plants in close proximity to consumers, e.g. towns, industrial estates, leisure parks, etc.

Since EXYTRON energy factories create jobs, ensure favourable energy prices within the region and create a high level of local added value, these projects, in contrast to many wind power projects, enjoy a high level of acceptance among the population. This makes the plants extremely interesting both for municipalities and for investors.

Where can EXYTRON systems be used?

In the area of supplying buildings (residential buildings, housing estates, neighbourhoods, commercial properties, etc.) with SmartEnergyTechnology, there should be a minimum energy requirement of around 200,000 kWh/a of electricity and 400,000 kWh/a of heat. Furthermore, the possibility of installing or using existing PV systems with an annual production of at least the electricity demand. Smaller plants are technically possible, but the specific costs increase significantly the smaller a plant becomes. There are no upper limits to the size of the plant, and industrial parks and entire city districts can be supplied. If you are planning a corresponding project, we look forward to receiving your enquiry via our Contact form.

Energy factories can be built where significant amounts of renewable energy are produced (e.g. wind farms) and where consumers such as local communities or industrial estates can be integrated in close proximity. If you know possible locations or are planning corresponding energy supply projects, we would be happy to receive your Enquiries.
