Feedstock Preparation

Depending on the type and condition of the waste to be converted, we provide the equipment necessary to prepare it for the best method of conversion to energy

Gasification

Best suited for hard and dry materials including; plastic, paper, wood, cardboard, fabrics, bubble wrap, plastic film, rubber, etc.

Material is shredded and then milled to a fine powder.

The powder is then transformed into pellets of a consistent size and density. The pellets are then fed into the gasifier where, under high temperatures, the chemical bonds are broken. The volatile gases (mostly H2) are extracted and can be used as fuel for heat or used to generate electricity.

The method of conversion best suited to a particular site and application depends on many variables.


Our team will assess the best and most cost efficient methods of disposing of the waste material while providing the most suitable form of energy.


Local conditions that factor into the final selection include:

  • Site conditions
  • Labor supply
  • Market Price of off-takes
  • Potential government subsidies and credits
  • Local infrastructure
  • Financing Alternatives
  • Export and import limitations
  • Duration of contracts for off-takes and feedstock
  • Future growth plans

Turbines

Biomass / Fuel Crops

Anaerobic Digestion

Best suited for soft and wet materials including; food waste, septic waste, manure, crop residue, grass, leaves, etc

Material is shredded and mixed in large tanks with water where methanogenic bacteria consume the feedstock, releasing methane (CH4) in the process.

The methane can be used as a fuel for heating or fed into generators to make electricity.

APPLICATIONS / TYPES OF FEEDSTOCK

Sorting Operations

Where the waste stream contains recyclables or unusable materials, the feedstock must be sorted and processed.

Small amounts of foreign matter are acceptable, but eliminating as much as possible is important.

Mechanical and manual sorting

Biomass Boilers

Best suited for plant material including; hay, straw, wood bark, etc. This is a lower tech solution than gasification and/or anaerobic digestion, and highly effective as a low cost means of generating power. Our design reduces particulates (smoke and ash) and operate at lower pressures than other kinds of boilers, so they are safer and easier to manage.
