The Polygen project is a waste gasification project located in Łaziska Górne, Poland.
The Polygen project is a plant for the generation of synthetic natural gas (“SNG”), electricity and heat from alternative fuels such as waste sludge, municipal solid waste (“MSW”) and biomass, which will contribute to the circular economy of the plant’s neighboring municipalities, converting the waste generated into energy that will be used for energy demands in the zone. The project will promote both environmental sustainability and the development of the local economy.
The project has being executed through a consortium of European companies. The consortium is formed by seven European highly specialised companies which are leaders in their areas of business. The companies that make up the consortium are: Rafako, Tauron, Exergon and IChPW (Poland), Atmostat and CEA (France) and EQTEC Iberia (Spain).
EQTEC participates in the Polygen project by providing its exclusive and patented gasification technology (EQTEC Gasifier Technology), which is based on a bubbling fluidised bed gasifier that uses a wide range of residues (RDF and sludge) and biomass as feedstock.
