FUEL REPLACEMENT SOLUTIONS

FOR COAL AND PEAT BURNING PLANTS

We suggest fuel replacement solutions for coal-burning plants. These solutions correspond to market trends, improve the economic performance, and save the existing production facilities, by bringing them in line with the changing requirements of environmental legislation.

In developing this technology, the main goal of the Parties is to substitute coal or peat for briquettes produced from native energy crops.

Torrefaction technology converts roundwood, thinning, harvest residues, unmerchantable roundwood, bark, agricultural residues and similar raw materials into pellets close to the same energy density as coal. TOR Pellets are cheaper than coal, CO2 negative and can be used for heating, cooling and clean power production in an infrastructure that was designed to burn dirty fossil fuels.

The scope of our work is to substitute coal and peat for pellets and torrefied pellets produced from native raw materials. Torrefaction technology converts agricultural waste, wood residues and bark into pellets with almost the same energy density as coal. Our torrefied pellets are cheaper than coal, CO2 negative and can be used for heating, cooling and clean power production in an infrastructure that was built for burning “dirty” fossil fuels such as coal and peat.

Torrefied pellets could be interesting to you for several reasons.

  • They improve the cost efficiency of coal and peat burning plants.
  • Use of torrefied pellets will save coal and peat burning plants, which must otherwise be dismantled according to government plans to make countries carbon-neutral.
  • Production of energy from renewable sources has obvious social benefits and is encouraged by officials. You can get the appropriate support from the Government using our torrefied pellets.
  • Our project can save peat burning plants and assist them in preparing for the expected decisions to reduce and, in the nearest future, to stop peat production worldwide.

Our torrefied pellets:

  • Are fully compliant with DIN en ISO 17225-8:2016: “Solid biofuels – Fuel specifications and classes – Part 8:  Graded, thermally treated and densified biomass fuels” and allows for the use of the existing boiler equipment without any changes.
  • Improve combustion properties – energy content and heating value.
  • Increase grindability. Require less energy in comparison with coal during processing.
  • Have an increased resistance to water absorption. The storage conditions are the same as for coal.
  • Have no problems with decomposition during storage. Torrefied pellets have reduced biological activity.
