A Small in Size Innovation with a Huge Disruptive Punch:

A Mobile Pyrolysis Plant Converting Wood Waste and Agriculture Residue into Biofuels and Bio-chemicals.

Mobile Pyrolysis Plant


Introduction to Wood Waste

Value out of Waste: Wood Waste, Agriculture Residue, usually known as Biomass, is a rejected and unusable residue produced in common day activities. Depending on the industry and origin, this term can cover both: municipal and industrial waste, construction, demolition or waste water process derived substances, combustible and fire-resistant, exposing a different range of properties and characteristics. Such a wide variety of products calls for the extensive portofolio of technologies dedicated to efficient management.
For many years, the industry has been busy developing technologies for segregation, recycling and reuse of materials. From the waste collection, through transportation, sorting and processing on site, hundreds of different in most cases expensive solutions are working in service of minimising the quantity of waste that would be dumped. Although waste recycling and management systems are more and more efficient, still there is often a high quantity of calorific solid waste that cannot be recycled with available measures.
At that point, the energy recovery technologies come up with a variety of mass burn solutions that handle the mixed stream waste. Incineration plants provide a general answer for incoming streams of waste, often managing it as a low quality fuel. Large incinerators have made their place in the industry for good welcoming waste transports from all the nearby regions.
However, what if the goal would be in avoiding waste transportation? Are there small-scale technologies that can be viable locally and serve individual communities?

Local Waste Management powered by Pyrotech Energy

The answer to a challenge of small scale thermal processes is in the Mobile Pyrolysis Plant. Pyrolysis of Biomass in high-temperature treatment performed in non-oxygen conditions allows not only to efficiently convert the residues but also produce a large quantity of energy on site. Pyrolysis of Wood Waste and Agriculture Residue is well adopted through small and medium scale applications.
This is where Pyrotech Energy technology comes in. Our target is providing, plug and play Mobile Pyrolysis Plant that can deal with the waste locally-so right at the place where its produced- and has four principles:

a) A Mobile Pyrolysis Plant goes to the Biomass storage location.
b) It locally converts Biomass/Waste/Residue into Pyrolysis Oil, Syn-Gas, Biohar and Wood Vinegar.
c) The Syn-Gas is used locally to generate electricity and heat.
d) The Pyrolysis Oil and Bio-Chemicals can be used locally or in another facility.

Pyrotech Energy Mobile Pyrolysis Plant is a continuous process for performing flash pyrolysis of waste streams from wood and agriculture residue in high tempurtures (up to 800 degrees C). The process is designed to operate with a variety of 2nd generation feedstock. Due to oxygen-free conditions, the treatment produces energy-rich Pyrolysis Oil (24 MJ/l) that is excellent replacment fossil fuel for local power generation. The high temperature operation also allows maximum reduction of the solid waste and converting into highly valuable bio-chemicals such as Bio-Char and Wood Vinegar. These features make Pyrotech Energy Mobile Pyrolysis Plant an ultimate solution into converting waste to energy objective in small scale dimensions, powering the local community or waste recycling plants.

We believe that size of technical solutions has to be associated with local environmental and economic need. This is why we develop modular and compact plants that can be quickly set up to the available conditions and further sized up when the demand increases.
Whenever working with municipal or industrial waste manager or a sustainability manager, we focus on decentralized solutions. Because by bringing the process right to the place it is needed, waste can really become a resource for creating value and building a sustainable economy, creating local job growth and stimulating the local economy.
