Upcycling through carbonisation
Biomass contains much more than just the energy of the future. Selected biogenic residues (SRC wood, silage waste, extract residues, paper fibre sludge…) can be refined into new, valuable products such as biochar, charcoal feed or activated carbon by carbonisation (charring). But even if the material can no longer be refined, you benefit from the carbonisation in the PYREG process.
The input material is completely recycled to a carbon substrate and excess regenerative heat.
There are no other by-products to dispose of.
The gentle thermal treatment leads to the destruction of pathogenic pathogens and organic pollutants.
Carbonisation is active climate protection: The process stores more carbon dioxide than it releases (improves C02 footprint).
The generated usable waste heat of up to 600 kWth (P1500 system) can be used for heating and drying purposes or for electricity generation.
Potential input material
In the following you will find examples. The list is not exhaustive. Your recycling material is not listed? Talk to us. On behalf of our customers and numerous research projects, we have already tested a wide variety of feed materials. We also generally offer our customers a material test with subsequent analysis of the material, so you can play it safe.
Biochar & Characol feed
Manure, dry manure
Branch and shrub pruning
Landscape conservation material
Basic requirements for input material
Minimum calorific value of 10 MJ/kg.
Dry matter content of > 65 %.
Particle size from 30mm.
