Energy from natural resources
Efficient systems and renewable energy sources are crucial building blocks for the responsible use of our natural resources. PYREG systems are primarily designed for the production of pollutant-free carbon products of different quality levels. But we wouldn’t be PYREG if we hadn’t designed our process so efficiently that it can also be used to recover renewable heat energy and produce renewable electricity.
A PYREG system works autothermally for the carbonization of input material (biomass, sludge or industrial waste). This means that only energy from the input material is used to maintain the thermal process. In addition, an energy surplus of up to 150 kWth is generated in a P500 plant (Standard Unit) and up to 600 kWth in a P1.500 plant (Industrial Units). This excess thermal energy can either be used directly for neighbouring processes (drying, local heating network…) or converted into electricity by means of a turbine.
