|1||Self-fueled using only 20% of harvested biomass|
|2||Up to 70% cost reduction to produce biomass pellets|
|3||~$50K in seed funding raised thus far|
|4||Each mower can also be used for distributed power generation|
The E-mower cuts grass using a covered, nonkinetic electrical bar cutter instead of a rotary blade, which improves safety. A pelletizer uses high pressure and temperatures to form the grass cuttings into pellets. A gasifier reactor converts the pellets to fuel gas. The fuel is filtered, cooled and mixed with air before it is used in an engine to create shaft power. An internal alternator generates power for onboard electrical components.
Grass fuel pellet companies operate today, often collecting low-grade hay from farmers for $60 a ton. They process it in large, centralized plants and sell it for $200 a ton. E-mow’s harvester would cut those production, transportation and processing costs by generating pellets right in the field, thus turning a waste stream into value stream for mowers.
The potential global impact of the product is huge, particularly for developing countries. An E-mow harvester could supply an entire region with locally sourced biomass for distributed power and heat generation.
