Pyrolysis Platform – Waste to Energy System
The pyrolysis platform is a flexible, clean, and high performance waste-to-energy system capable of converting a multitude of solid and liquid wastes into useable heat and electricity.
The system can handle both solid combustibles, and liquid waste streams, providing the opportunity to eliminate a wide variety of waste through a single process. The use of pyrolysis reduces the volume of waste sent to landfills by 85-90%, while solely producing ashes as a residual material, which amounts to barely 10-15% of the initial mass of the waste.
The platform has a minimum lifespan of 20 years, built to operate 24 hours a day, and contains all the required equipment to treat the combustion gases (dust, NOx, etc.) , and respect all environmental regulations.
- Recycling Ferrous Metals
- Removing aggregate, glass, dangerous substances, oversize items
- Shredding waste to 2 inch minus granular size
Compaction & Pyrolysis
- Waste heated to 800-900°C
- Formation of a gas and vapor mixture: Water, carbon monoxide and dioxide, hydrogen, methane, ethane
- Ashes are the sole output
- Products can be recovered from the ash (post pyrolysis) for reuse, recycling or
resale. For example metals which have been encased in plastic, or compounds
that can be reclassified as a product.
- Output can be used for heat, steam generation, etc.
- In the form of hot water, steam or thermal oil heating
- For combined heat and power, multiple options are available: Heat & ORC Engines, Packaged Steam Turbines
- Typically 750-950kW thermal
- Built to function 24/7 at a 90% operating rate (7884 hours/year)
- Minimum lifespan of 20 years
- Conform to IED (Industrial Emissions Directive)
- No material fusion during process
- Output produced is solely carbon char and ashes (only 10-15% of initial mass)
