ELECTRICITY

Positive impact development

We propose full waste-to-electricity, off-grid systems for local communities in Africa. By transforming municipal solid waste, industrial, commercial or biomass waste into valuable resources and electricity, we bring solutions for sustainable development of Africa.

Environment

Protecting environment by managing waste and minimizing pollution.

Circular Economy

Efficient management of waste materials and transforming it into valuable power.

Sustainable Growth

Waste management that supports development of communities.

Local Electricity

Compact and decentralized solutions for on-site production of electricity.

From Waste to Energy

Majority of calorific waste generated in African continent is now landfilled or dumped with enormous negative impact to the environment and economy. We provide complete systems for turning the waste into electricity. Our technical offer includes PYROPOWER® modular systems for 300kW, 500kW, 1 MW and 2 MW electricity units. Proposed solution is a turn-key system that combines three main steps of material processing:

  • Feedstock preparation. Preparation of product for thermochemical valorization. Segregation, cleaning, shredding and densification of mixed stream of material to obtain valuable fuel for waste to energy process.
  • High-temperature pyrolysis. Thermochemical conversion in Biogreen® high temperature pyrolysis unit. Generation of valuable fuels that can be converted into electricity.
  • Conversion to electricity. Conditioning of syngas and conversion into electricity in combined heat and power units.

From Biomass to Fuel

Collection and transportation of biomass residues carries out significant expenses due to low density, high-moisture and low calorific value of fuel. Due to the increasing demand for clean solid fuels, we decided to propose complete system of upgrading the biomass residues into full value, standardized solid fuel with high density, low moisture and high calorific value. Our systems achieve this goal locally, without creating additional transportation costs for the Customer.

  • Feedstock preparation. Segregation, cleaning, shredding and drying of biomass for creating uniform material.
  • Densification. Increasing the density of biomass residues by pelletizing it.
  • Energy densifying. Torrefaction (roasting) of the solid fuel by using low-temperature pyrolysis conversion that leads to increasing the energy content per volume.
