Gas generation technologies
Envirotherm offers two technologies basing upon the use of solid fuels which can be selected in dependence of the feedstock, the product to be generated and the size of the plant.
The pressurized fixed-bed slagging gasifier designed by British Gas and Lurgi (BGL) is especially applied for large-scale coal-based gas generation plants. The process results in the generation of a high-quality syngas to be used as a basis for various products such as methanol, fertilizers, and electrical power or Fischer-Tropsch fuels.
Gas generation on the basis of a circulating fluidized bed is preferentially applied for the generation of lean and fuel gas from coal and/or biomass.
In collaboration with the US process design company ZeroPoint Envirotherm offers small-scale turn-key thermal power plants in the capacity range from 2 to 10 MWel. In these plants, the fuel material is subject to gasification within the limits of a small-scale fixed bed with a subsequent conversion of the generated gas into electricity.
Respective cooperation was agreed upon in December 2012.
