CPEG provides the following, all under one roof:• Comprehensive line of process equipment from four separate companies• 500+ years of combined experience in equipment design, engineering and manufacturing• State-of-the-art testing lab to simulate scaled field operation with multiple pieces of equipment for multistep and multistage testing along with full analysis of material characteristics and measurements of material behavior in specific processing applications
Yilkins is an innovative, renewable technology company dedicated to the valorization of biomass residues towards renewable energy and high value industrial and chemical products. Yilkins’ technology platform offers solutions for drying, torrefaction, separation, cooling and cleaning of residue streams . High carbon containing products like biochar and coal replacements for the steel industry can be produced besides dried or torrefied feedstock for gasification and the subsequent synthesis of liquid biofuels (SAF, Biodiesel) and industrial bio-based chemicals. . A wide variety of biomass residues and organic waste material can be used as input to the Yilkins process (including herbaceous, agricultural biomass and sludges).
ATS has developed and patented catalytic oxidation technology to address the biggest problem inhibiting commercial-scale torrefaction----handling of the volatile gases produced in the torrefaction process and effective use of the energy created by combustion of those gases. ATS TorreCat™ Catalytic Oxidation Technology (which can be applied to any type of torrefaction reactor) provides a system to safely and effectively combust those volatile torrefaction gases and, in the process, generate large volumes of essentially inert gas for use throughout the torrefaction system. Use of inert gas is the key to successful torrefaction. ATS TorreCat™ Catalytic Oxidation Technology finally opens the door to commercial-scale torrefaction.
HM3 Energy licenses its proven technology to produce bio-coal. Its cost effective and energy efficient torrefaction and densification technologies produce bio-coal for the export market that is cheaper than white wood pellets at the coal burner tip. HM3’s energy dense briquettes, produced from forest waste, can be used in both coal-fired and biomass-firedelectric generation plants. HM3 tested its technology in a demo plant on western juniper and Ponderosa pine forest residues, as well as Douglas fir sawmill residues. Briquettes produced performed well in test burns at Western Research Institute. Energy content is 22.5 GJ/Metric Ton; 10,261 Btu/lb; Hardgrove grindability index comparable to Powder River Basin coal.
NextFuel AB is the technology supplier of the world’s leading torrefaction technology. Our raw material flexible technology make it possible to transform any type of crops, agricultural waste and fast growing elephant grass into a clean copy of coal in less than 30 minutes. This new clean fuel has an energy content of 23-28 GJ/t and is possible to use in existing energy infrastructure (e.g like coal plants, steel mills, cement factories) without the need for any expensive upgrades. It is even cheaper than coal in most markets. We offer licensing agreements and make the biomass industry scalable so it can replace large volumes of fossil fuels all around the globe. Licensing agreements is possible. For information visit www.nextfuel.com
