PEREGRINE IS THE FUTURE
The Peregrine Turbine is a new type of turbomachine that substantially improves the efficiency of converting biomass to electric power by a factor of two. By combining the highly efficient Peregrine Turbine with a pyrolitic barrel biomass gasifier, not only is it possible to generate inexpensive power from biomass without RECS, it also becomes possible to sequester the carbon in the form of biochar which is the by-product of the barrel process. The biochar is a concentrated carbon that can be utilized for further benefit. It can be activated and used as a substrate for water filtration in areas where access to clean water is limited. It can also be used as a fertilizer enhancer, improving crop yields for local farmers in economically depressed areas where crop yields are typically low.
Advanced sCO2 Turbine Technology
The Peregrine Turbine is described by industry players as “Transformational” and “Disruptive”. Our technology is projected to bring a whole new level of performance, fuel efficiency, and low emissions to the turbine world. Based on a proprietary thermodynamic cycle enabled by the unique properties of Super-critical Carbon Dioxide (SCO2), the Peregrine Turbine achieves unheard-of thermal efficiencies for a primary cycle turbine engine. With the reduction of fuel burn comes a commensurate reduction in emissions and the novel burner technology further reduces harmful NOx and CO.
For mobile applications, future platforms will demand advances in integrated propulsion, power and thermal management; a total energy management system. The Peregrine Turbine is ideally and uniquely positioned to meet those demands and provide capabilities currently not possible with conventional and even advanced adaptive cycle engine technologies.
Our proprietary heat exchanger technology brings turbine engine hot section design principles to bear in a way that dramatically advances the state-of-the-art for these components. In addition, reduced engine part count and design-for-sustainability features make the Peregrine Turbine a life-cycle cost winner.

The Solution: Biomass-Fired Peregrine Turbine
Electricity is a force-multiplier. It enhances productivity, improves access to clean water and advanced medical services. It improves access to modern media, and is overall a quality of life enhancer.
The problem is a worldwide lack of access to low-cost electric power. Peregrine Turbine Technologies presents the solution to this major problem: The Biomass-Fired Peregrine Turbine. This solution is cost effective, and environmentally friendly.
Transformational Electrical Power Generation Technology
Distributed electrical power generation is the production of power at or near point of use versus the production at a large scale, central generation location which is then transmitted over long distances and then distributed locally/regionally. The cost of transmission and distribution typically accounts for approximately 50% of the cost of delivered electricity.
The PTT DES sCO2 turbine is enabled by a proprietary Brayton thermal cycle, an advanced heat exchanger design, and the special properties of sCO2. It is fuel agnostic and operates on air combustible fuels including biomass. The projected improvements in fuel efficiency and emissions, reduced maintenance and repair costs are about to change the nature of power generation.
