Converting Waste to Clean Thermal and Electrical Energy

Downdraft Gasification technology is being deployed at an ever increasing rate globally as more customers begin to realise the strong financial benefits obtainable and superior environmental outcomes it delivers. Whether you are aiming for superior energy sustainability, addressing accumulating waste reduction or simply looking to reduce your carbon footprint, our offerings of patented, commercialized industrial-grade gasification and downdraft gasification systems enable you to deliver a sustainable cleaner future. Being fully scalable and offering base load power, these systems are custom-designed and so are built “fit for purpose” to accommodate each customer’s specific needs. In addition, we offer full management services, enabling continuous operation and maintenance on an ongoing basis.

Technology 1
  • Solid and Predictable financial returns
  • Surety against future risks such as price increases or government regulation
  • Converting a variety of biomass materials into green energy options
  • Flexibility of design ensures systems are designed to suit a range of waste material
  • Eliminating landfill disposal of many types of waste materials
  • Reducing carbon footprint and greenhouse gases whilst generating Carbon credits
  • Producing a valuable by-product with many commercial, agricultural and industrial uses

True Green Energy Production

The production of clean renewable energy has been achieved using a variety of biomass and/or industrial waste feedstocks. To date, these have included both blended and 100% biomass feedstocks which have been converted to either syngas to power Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) engines, steam generators or by refining the syngas so it can be used in conventional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) technology.

Technology 2
  • As we build fit for purpose to the end user’s needs, each plant differs in size, generation system used and feedstock, both in type/s and preparation system.
  • Our engineering and design teams work with the customer to ensure the best possible outcome is obtained
  • Which includes looking at future growth, expansion potential, feedstock trends whilst environmental sustainability and stewardship is maintained as the core value.

Clean Conversion of Waste

Backed by over 30 years of product development and physical deployment, the technology delivered in the Downdraft Gasifiers ensures a high-temperature process, often referred to as a Thermo Chemical process, efficiently converts the waste. This process takes place in a computer controlled environment which limits the amount of available oxygen. This ensures the reaction reaches and maintains a steady state which provides a consistent output of just two compounds:

  • Synthetic fuel gas, also known as producer or syn gas, can be utilized for clean combustion, much like natural gas, in downstream applications.
  • Biochar a valuable carbon rich medium with a multitude of applications and uses.

Burning and Incineration are NOT associated with our Downdraft Gasification technology offerings. These issues are hallmarks of old, out-dated methodologies and processes that made claims of being clean waste to energy systems. Such systems burn or incinerate large volumes of waste and in doing so generate high levels of toxic emissions that require constant and expensive monitoring and cleaning. In addition they produce a waste product which typically has little no value and so ends up in landfill. Then there are those gasification systems that scrub or clean their gas with water systems, that simply creates another issue as you now have a waste water that needs to be treated.
