By combining a rapid in-
The composting system releases and cleans the plastics and metals from the wet organic materials ready for the MRF to separate the biodegradable from non-
To prevent process odours escaping to the local environment the odourous parts of the process are housed in a building that is maintained under negative air pressure by continuously extracting air that is sent to a biofilter for cleaning prior to venting the clean odourless air to atmosphere.
The pure BioEnergy process utilises a two day rapid in-
The Unders from the trommel screen contain a renewable energy content in excess of 90% qualifying it as biomass. This material is then destoned if required before being dried to produce a consistent, homogenous feedstock for either a gasifier of pyrolyser dependent on its nature. The gas from the gasifier/pyrolyser is then cleaned and used to drive a gas engine of turbine dependent on the size of the installation. Waste heat from the gasifier and engine/turbine is used to power the dryer to minimise energy wastage.
The BioSynEnergy process can be used to generate "brown" energy from the non-
The BioSynEnergy process also reduces waste miles as the residues that have to be shipped off site are greatly reduced.
The BioSynEnergy process could be used to recover landfill void space by mining the landfill and using it as an energy reserve. Obviously care must be taken to ensure that no hazardous materials are used as feedstock.
