Tarpo company has developed and operates the third consecutive year the private coal gasification plant with an output of 160 kW. The developed technology is applied commercially but also in projects of several megawatts in both home and abroad. It enables reliable control of the system in automatic, unattended mode (with occasional supervision), mainly due to achieving excellent purity of energo gas and both from the solids and in terms of the minimum content of tars. The time utilization is above 80%.
The device enables to process the biomass in the form of chips up to 50% humidity. The only waste from this process stream is wood ashes with some mechanical unburned carbon level of about 3%. Heat from the engine cooling cogeneration units is generally used to heat the premises of the company, eventually for other technological purposes.
Due to the limited resources of biomass it is imperative to use these limited resources in the most efficient way to the most efficient devices, which mainly produces electrical energy as the noblest kind of energy in general and co-produced thermal energy is used efficiently. The gasification devices operating in cogeneration mode, with high efficiency cogeneration, comply with these requirements.
Like the fuel can be used alternatively as well as a number of other carbonaceous fuels - sewage sludge treatment, digestate of biogas stations, biofuels municipal waste, etc.
