All utilities provided by one unit for remote locations.

The Integrated Utility System (IUS)

Utility services are the mainstay of a safe and comfortable lifestyle, globally.  People need regular access to power, heating and water supplies, then wastewater and refuse wastes disposal, wherever they are.  Reliable water and sanitation services are essential, though absent in many parts of the world.

The IUS offers a radical step-change in the supply of these services. The full range always required at any given location comes from a single process system, within a compact module, directly on-site and completely independent.  The IUS provides:

 

  • Electrical power; as needed and on demand

  • Heating services; hot water and space heating

  • Refuse wastes disposal; immediate and complete

  • Potable fresh water; from any local source

  • Wastewater treatment; no environmental contamination

  • Water recycling; cleansed and sterile for re-use

 

The sole operating input is a fuel supply to the generator for the power required; all other processes are based on thermal treatment driven by the generator waste heat, with the energy flows then fully recuperated through to useful output services.The basic principles behind the concept:

 

  • A by-product of thermal power generation is high grade heat, up to ~600⁰C;

  • All organic matter thermally decomposes from around 200-250⁰C;

  • The one method guaranteed to safely sterilise water is heat treatment;

  • There is no bioactive effluent; the only residues are in the form of mineral ash;

  • Using renewable biofuel for the generator makes the site low/zero carbon, automatically.

 

The IUS is novel as a product, but not reliant on new science; the innovation lies in the concept and process design.  The process system is based on commercially available technologies from OEM suppliers, as is module production strategy.  The concept is directly scalable to meet a wide range of service capacity requirements and applications, using the exact same basic process design.

 

The innovation IP is covered by patent grant in 21 countries, comprising 80% of global GDP.  The patent specification covers the concept as a whole, of a single integrated process system for on-site independence in all utility services.
