Because most of our potential residential customers live in the suburbs and rely on natural gas or heating oil to get through the winter, our early focus is on proving BRASH works for suburban homeowners and markets. In rural areas, there is a growing interest in biofuels.
BRASH is actively developing a wood pellet-based version of our system, and we’re looking at using other fuels, like cordwood, to generate heat and power in the winter and maybe some summertime cooling. Processed biomass from farms, breweries and other waste streams can all be considered.
Potentially any combustible fuel that can be metered in flow (gas, liquid or solid) could supply fuel for a BRASH heat, power and cooling solution. Fuel selection for proper combustion within regulated limits will require testing and verification before any commercial claim or offer or sale.
