ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel Technologies is a global leading supplier of technologies, production plants, systems and services for the animal feed, aqua feed, and pet food industries and for the biomass pelleting industry.
Biomass produces a cleaner, renewable energy, reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions, all while creating lower operating costs for power plants.
Biomass, the by-product of pulp and paper, agriculture, and municipal sludge, is perhaps the oldest source of renewable energy on Earth. Biomass' use in energy production is currently growing worldwide at an exponential rate.
Biomass Power Plants generates power from biomass fuels such as wood pellets, bagasse and hog fuel. This fuels are susceptible to spontaneous combustion since it can occur at any stage of storage, production or transport. Early detection of fire or combustion is important for safety control.
Being driven by new legislation, the production of substitute fuel/alternative fuel will be gain momentum in the next few years, as well as the expected increase of recycling rate in municipalities. This means a lot of waste streams can be turned into alternative fuel for the coal fired power plant, cement and lime industry, biomass power plant, or other industrial boiler systems that still burning fossil fuels.
Superior Boilers can be found burning digester methane gas, hydrogen, tallow (animal fats), biodiesel, sanderdust and recovering heat from biomass systems. In addition, Superior Boiler Works, Inc. has partnered with the biomass experts AESI located in Wichita, KS USA. AESI offers turnkey expertly designed biomass sytems and offers burn tests for a diverse array of materials
For particulate matter (PM) emission control in high temperature exhaust streams, such as those from biomass or coal boilers and heaters, common dedusters such as cyclones and multicyclones are not able to comply with current emission limits. This is mainly due to their low efficiency, particularly for small particles (less than 10µm). In order to meet emission limits this usually requires an additional investment in a final stage deduster. Bag filters (BF) are very efficient dedusters. They can also be...
MDF production requires large amounts of energy. Most of the demand of energy is thermal: steam for the cooking and refining process, hot gas for drying and thermal oil for the continuous press. VYNCKE offers customized energy solutions, burning a wide variety of process fuels and external fuels (all types of biomass). The energy plant can be designed to produce steam in a direct way (through an integrated steam boiler) or in an indirect way via a thermal oil-steam heat exchanger. The system can be adjusted to...
The Natural Energy Solution uses a proprietary, patented process called Gas Phase Reduction (”GPR”). This is a highly effective, non-incineration method that converts all sewage sludge/biosolids into a methane product gas. A standalone GPR processing plant solely for biosolids can be built and at scale will be a highly desirable asset. The most efficient business model is to include the processing of biosolids with traditional Municipal Solid Waste (“MSW”). The standalone GPR processing...
Renewable energy from biomass: Solid biomass is intended to make a major contribution to the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies. However, to reach the ambitious goals for heating and energy generation from woody biomass, it will need to be made available in large amounts. In keeping with our slogan, "Technology for a better environment", we have taken up the challenge of finding ways to do this.
You`ll find Jeffrey Rader`s equipment employed in many stages of woody biomass processing. Woody Biomass is the residual waste wood that results from the lumber manufacturing process. It is burned in a boiler to generate steam that is used both in the lumber-drying process and to produce electricity. Jeffrey Rader is a leader in serving the electric utility industry with boiler feed systems (pneumatic and mechanical) for producing electric power from biomass materials.
If you produce or consume biomass fuels, you know that quality is critical to your success, and you know that moisture and ash content control are critical to biomass fuel quality. Too much moisture and you get poor efficience and high emissions. Too much ash and you get fouling and slagging. And if either of those is uncontrolled, purchase contracts can fall through. Computrac can help.
Cogeneration plants with Turboden ORC can produce heat from biomass and electrical power from biomass with high efficiency and user friendly operation. The generated power usually ranges between 200 kW and 15 MW electric.

Converting wood waste into electricity—lumber mill off-cuts, wood from forestry thinnings (cleared of leaf matter), disposal of wooden pallets and crating (with nails removed). Wood is chipped, dried, and used to produce electricity, reducing electrical costs and paid disposal.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its...
Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to the flammable...
Without controls, the combustion of solid fuel (coal) to generate power results in the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxides (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, mercury, lead, cadmium, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and arsenic. This is why it is critically important for solid fuel power plants to comply with stringent environmental standards by utilizing the optimal technologies for emissions management, environmental air pollution control, and fluid handling and...
