We supply both thermal power plants to generate heat from a renewable energy source as well as
gasification plants to generate electricity to supply power to the electrical grid.
Thermal power plants use fuel to heat up water from a reservoir, which generates steam at high pressure.
The highly pressurized steam then goes through pipes to rotate the blades of a turbine. As the turbine
begins to spin, it causes the generator to turn. This starts the flow of electricity.
In Poland we use wood pellets as an energy source to supply heat at MAN Trucks in Niepolomice.
In Northern Italy we will start building a thermal power plant using fruit waste supplemented with wood
chips as an energy source to generate heat at Hans Zipperle AG, a fruit juice producer.
Gasification is a process that converts carbonaceous materials contained in the municipal waste into methane, carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide by reacting at high temperatures with controlled amount of oxygen without combustion. The resulting gas mixture is called syngas.
We provide automated pre-treatment systems to prepare several waste streams into a high caloric Refuge Derived Fuel (RDF). With our advanced and unique thermal treatment technology RDF is used to produce syngas with which we generate electricity and heat using our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit.
This unique two-stage gasification process ensures the maximum energy output from RDF and utilizes heat from the flue gases to generate steam whilst keeping extremely low emission values and a minimum production of non-hazardous bottom ash.
These relatively small waste to energy plants are designed to generate approximately 5 MW per line of electricity or heat. These are ideal for clients with specific fuel or waste requirements and specific needs regarding decentral heat and power production for smaller cities or remote areas that are further from centres of larger cities and lack suitable infrastructure.
Waste streams for energy conversion by gasification are:
