Our Solutions

Our patented and practically proven process uses dried sewage sludge to generate sustainable electricity and heat. Decentralized on the grounds of the wastewater treatment plant. This saves transport costs, protects the environment and is both sustainable and economical.

All modules are based on the principle of gasification. In this process, the energy in the solid sludge is converted into the gas phase. This synthesis gas can then be converted into usable energy in a much more variable and efficient manner, especially when considering smaller recycling plants. The synthesis gas is generated according to the same principle in all modules. The difference lies in the synthesis gas utilization.

All modules produce the same residual product: a versatile, phosphorus-rich, low-carbon, decontaminated ash in the form of mineral granules that can be used directly or indirectly as fertilizer or aggregate.

The choice of the appropriate SynGas plant is based primarily on site-specific energy requirements and the amount of sludge produced annually. With the different solutions we can cover the full range between a turnkey CHP plant for highly efficient power generation, a heat module for a pure heat utilization, up to the subsequent equipment of an existing incineration plant with a SynGas auxiliary firing module for the co-incineration of sewage sludge with simultaneous separation of the ashes (requirement of the AbfKlärV).

We will be happy to advise you personally and prepare an individual offer for you.
