Farming operations that require heat also benefit from the CHP system. The return on investment will vary dependent on whether there is low or no cost access to wood chips and whether the 45 kWh of power can be fully utilized on site or, if not, what rate the power can be sold to the grid.
Particle board production requires huge amounts of hot gas at high temperatures for wood chips dryers. Besides generating heat for the main press, the thermal oil heater can generating hot water, steam or electricity (ORC application). VYNCKE offers a customized energy solution, burning a wide variety of process fuels and external fuels (all types of biomass).
Small rural communities or work camps are ideal applications for the Borealis wood power plant. Its application fit is best when the heat can be used to support a micro-heating-network for 25 homes or fewer in conjunction with a community centre as base load. Power needs must exceed the 45 kWh or it can be sold to the grid.
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...
Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H), which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification.
Gasification starts with a base material which can originate from a wide variety of materials for example wood chips and pellets, plastics, municipal solid waste, sewage, waste crops, and fossil fuels such as coal. During Gasification the base material is reacted at high...
Any company that has a need for both heat and power is an ideal fit for the Borealis wood power system, especially if located in a rural setting where energy costs are high. The application requirement must be for the full 45 kWh of power for immediate use. If power requirement is not that high, then this energy can be sold to the regional power grid often at preferred rates. Options for off-grid solutions are being reviewed.
The Triogen ORC can be used with biomass combustion, for example sawdust, chips, bark and treated wood; and other biomasses, such as straw, rice, husks and bio-sludge, as well as other high organic-content waste. The Triogen ORC will be connected to the combustor. The Triogen ORC converts the flue gasses from the combustor into electricity.
