Chemical Waste Streams

Applications Overview

LPP Combustion - Liquid Waste Streams to Electricity

LPP Combustion, LLC is a liquid fuel and waste hydrocarbons conversion company that has developed a patented technology that can help companies save millions of dollars by converting waste liquids generated from manufacturing processes into affordable electric power.  This conversion and recycling process will address two critical needs for manufacturers and waste stream recycling facilities.  1.) dealing with waste liquids that currently require costly environmental management, and 2.) finding reliable sources of low cost electricity and steam to power the manufacturing/recycling process.  Waste liquids suitable for use with the LPP Combustion technology include:  acetone, heptane, ethanol, ethyl acetate, isobutyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, toluene, methanol, butanol and other similar hydrocarbons, up to and including No. 2 distillate fuels.


The company is seeking to work with chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers as well as waste recyclers to provide this innovative and cost-saving technology. LPP Combustion can retrofit your existing gas turbine generator with our fuel processing skid or supply you with a turn-key skid and generator system using your choice of commercial gas turbine generator.

LPP Combustion, LLC has been working with pharmaceutical plants in California and in Israel for multi-megawatt generator-skid systems. Currently they ship liquid waste hundreds of miles for incineration – a costly process that offers little return on investment.  These facilities are working to implement the LPP Combustion technology to burn this liquid waste on-site, creating electric power and generating two significant cost-savings streams.  LPP Combustion has also been working with natural gas “fracking” interests in Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Texas, and Colorado on ways to implement our systems to capture the energy that is currently being wasted and released into the environment through flaring of natural gas liquids.

We now have a 65 kW generator-skid system operating at a hydrocarbon recycling facility in Canada, with plans for a 400 kW follow-on system.  We also are in discussions with a solvent recycling facility in Ontario for additional systems.                                    

Repurposing waste liquids for clean electric power generation not only supports sustainable process management practices, but can also lower energy costs, assist in meeting air-quality goals or mandates, lower waste disposal costs, and reap environmental rewards for both the company and the surrounding community. 

LPP Combustion’s technology has been presented at numerous professional conferences and has been validated in several peer-reviewed scientific journal articles.  In addition, there are multiple U.S and international patents on the system. 

We would like to arrange a presentation for your company.  This should be of interest to all manufacturing executives, and would be especially helpful to health, environment, and safety officers as well as Chief Financial Officers.  LPP Combustion also extends an invitation to visit our facility in Columbia, MD, to see a 30 kW demonstration system. 

To arrange for an introductory meeting or call, please contact either Chris Broemmelsiek or Art Schatz at 410-884-3089.  We look forward to providing more details and options for your specific needs.


LPP Combustion Benefits:

  1. Reduce maintenance costs for use of liquid fuels (excluding No. 4 and No. 6) in gas turbines.

  2. Reduce criteria pollutant emissions for liquid fuels (excluding No. 4 and No. 6).

  3. Reduce operating costs with improved efficiency and performance - less derating for use of liquid fuels in gas turbines.

  4. Gain fuel flexibility for gas turbines with dynamic interchanging and blending of fuels:  natural gas, diesel, heating oil, naphtha, kerosene, bioethanol, biodiesel, natural gas condensates, LNG, and other liquid fuels.

  5. Reduce fuel costs by using off-spec fuels like pharmaceutical or petrochemical waste streams.

  6. Gain electrical generation capacity expansion options with a substitute for natural gas that does not require gas pipeline infrastructure.

  7. Enable use of gas turbines in the highly efficient combined-cycle configuration while running on liquid fuel supplies.

  8. Produce building heating and cooling AC in remote locations by using combined heat and power (CHP) configuration of the power system while running on liquid fuel supplies.
