The New PP30 Cogen-CS

Combined Heat and Power with built-in Carbon Sequestration (CHP-CS)

All Power Labs invites you to join us for a special Launch Party on Friday, June 29th in Berkeley, CA where we will debut the new Gen 2 Power Pallet.  The event will be a formal presentation by APL Founder/CEO Jim Mason on the new concepts and features of the PP30 Cogen-CS, as well as run demonstrations with several machines on site. As many of you have noticed, APL has been rather quiet for the last two years in terms of new announcements and deployments.  The pause has been […]

Local Carbon Network: Campaign progress

  Thank you to all who have participated in the Indiegogo campaign to set the Local Carbon Network project in motion.   So far we’ve raised about $25,000 in Local Carbon sponsorships, which is about 20% of the way to our goal.  This is a great start, and we were pleased so many of your wrote notes back to us to affirm this new model for enabling local carbon drawdown.  Now we need to get the campaign to the goal of $150,000 to fully set the Bay Area Carbon Cluster in motion.   We have about a week left in the campaign, which […]

Carbon Management Through Green Waste Management

Partners Wanted For Waste To Energy Project Trials

You likely already know that APL’s technology provides significant value in the areas of waste management and renewable energy, while also making substantial contributions in the fight against climate change. Turning green waste into energy is a win-win-win solution. As pointed out in an article this week in The Guardian, “Agricultural waste, which would otherwise be a major source of greenhouse gas emissions if burnt, could instead be turned into a biochar – a process that produces more energy than it consumes – and the biochar could then be […]

Got green waste? Let’s turn it into something useful.

Plus: New grants, projects, and the new master plan for reversing climate change.

Need power in California? Got green waste? Contact us APL is now expanding into project development in California––operating its own equipment for on-site power and heat generation, focusing initially on sites that can net meter with the utility grid and have green waste onsite they’re paying to dispose of.

As we’ve mentioned previously, California is in the midst of a solid waste crisis, driven by the twin drivers of closing biomass plants and a forest health crisis […]

LA Times: APL biomass gasification “one of the most promising technologies”

Flexible clean energy that helps solve climate change?

That’s what the LA Times calls biomass gasification from All Power Labs– “one of the most promising technologies” to help solve the forest health crisis in California. Last week the Los Angeles Times, California’s largest newspaper, published an editorial exploring solutions for one of the toughest problems facing the Golden State: how to preserve our leadership on climate change while dealing with a crippling multi-year drought that has left more than 100 million trees dead. The solution is to convert all that dead biomass into on-demand energy, and along the way do […]

A menace in our mountains: the terrifying climate truth behind California’s fall forest colors

Fall in the United States is known for the colors in New England, as trees turn to the warm shades of autumn before dropping their leaves. That sort of change historically wasn’t common here California, where our forests are mostly evergreen pine trees. At least, that used to be true–but not anymore.

Thanks to drought and climate change, there are now 66 million dead trees in California, a number that may triple by year’s end. That’s almost one million linear miles of dead biomass, enough to stretch to the moon and back twice. But, when combined with […]

Two years in the field-and counting

Two years in the field and counting — APL technology passes key new product milestone

As world leaders gather in New York this week to celebrate Earth Day, and to sign the COP21 Paris Climate Accords, here at APL we’ve been doing some celebrating of our own.

If you have been in the renewable energy field for a while, you know that new technologies don’t come along that often, and rarer still are the ones that pass two years of service in the field.

That is why we’re so pleased to announce that our v5 […]
