Representative Projects
Deployable Power
Deployable Power
CTC successfully designed, built, and demonstrated a deployable syngas to hydrogen system capable of producing an average of 4.2 kilograms/day of hydrogen from the syngas generated by the gasification of 5 pounds of biomass per hour in a WTE system. The estimated cost to produce 1 kilogram (Kg) of Hydrogen using this CTC-developed technology is $3.90/Kg of Hydrogen which is less than the cost to generate the same amount of Hydrogen from processes like electrolysis and natural gas reforming.

Flightline Equipment
and Vehicles
Flightline Equipment and Vehicles
The fleet demonstration of 50/50 blend of hydro-processed renewable jet fuel certification (HRJ)/JP8 was conducted with a cross-section of pieces of SE&V at Selfridge Air National Guard Base (ANGB), Michigan and Robins Air Force Base (AFB), Georgia: 12 vehicles and 33 ground support equipment assets. The demonstration results of 50/50 blended fuels at Selfridge ANGB and Robins AFB documented no impacts or degradation to USAF SE&V operating with the blended fuels. As a result, JP-8 Mil Spec was amended to include 50/50 blended HRJ as a drop-in fuel furthering the USAF’s options for using renewable energy sources.

Energy Technology
Siting
Energy Technology Siting
CTC engineers enhanced existing tools and developed new, advanced tools for tracking, reviewing, and evaluating new renewable energy siting projects that may impact military operational and training areas. These tools are currently being leveraged by the U.S. Navy and Air Force to provide information to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Energy Siting Clearinghouse when determining if, and to what extent, a proposed renewable energy project will impact military operations.

Portable Power
Systems
Portable Power Systems
CTC developed a proof-of-concept engine and generator combination with hybrid and silent watch capabilities. The system is able to produce 120 volts of Alternating Current (AC) at 2 kilowatt peak power. In addition, the CTC H2000 Hybrid Generator will readily scale-up (2x’s) with near negligible footprint deviation from the demonstrator as it is organically designed to do so. This system is packaged in a manner to minimize the volume and weight and represents a significant reduction in footprint in comparison to the legacy 3kW generator system.
