KOPF SynGas at IFAT 2022


From 30 May to 3 June 2022, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management will once again open its doors in Munich in compliance with the current Corona Regulation. With topics that move the whole world, IFAT is the international meeting place for the industry – with innovative offerings that set standards. In 18 halls and an extensive outdoor area, more than 3,300 international exhibitors present the environmental technologies of the future.

SÜLZLE KOPF SynGas and SÜLZLE KLEIN will also be present with a joint trade fair appearance and will show visitors the innovations and synergies of the SÜLZLE Group at their stand 221/320 in Hall A2.

We look forward to your visit. You can find more information directly on the IFAT 2022 website.

Thermal sewage sludge utilisation

The thermal SÜLZLE KOPF SynGas process is a flexible and future-proof utilisation concept for extracting energy from sewage sludge. Syngas is first created by a fluidised-bed reactor and subsequently made flexibly available as an energy source in various modules.

The process can be easily integrated into existing operations thanks to its compact design. It also meets the legal requirements for sewage sludge treatment and syngas ash in phosphorus recovery. The most recent reference plant in Koblenz was handed over to the customer at the end of 2021 and has since been operated by KOPF SynGas for the city’s sludge dewatering system.

Replacing fossil fuels with sewage sludge

The SynGas fuel gas module solution also targets power and cement plants, for instance, contributing to the decarbonisation of industry. The material flow must be separated during the sewage sludge utilisation process to ensure the efficient recovery of phosphorus in the future. This is where the SynGas fuel gas module excels: integrating it into the existing infrastructure will continue to ensure the acceptance and utilisation of sewage sludge.

The combustible syngas produced from the sewage sludge is a substitute fuel that can be flexibly integrated into various firing processes with exergy requirements. The phosphorus in the sewage sludge is separated together with the ash produced during the process and, if desired, fed to downstream utilisation processes. In recovering phosphorus, the process contributes to the circular economy and helps reduce CO2 emissions.
