Pyrolysis The Innovation of our Energy Future About Ecoproject Ecoproject is an engineering company boasting an extensive experience in the field of alternative energy sources. Over the past five years the company has developed and implemented a technology for the energy recovery of RDF. Over these years we collaborated with a number of international companies and academic institutions. At present, an industrial scale installation of our technology is being certified by TÜV. RDF Pyrolysis RDF Pyrolysis An RDF Pyrolysis plant comprises the following modules: • Feedstock preparation and feeding into the reactor • Pyrolysis Reactor • Module for purification of the resulting gas • Module for fuel storage • Module for energy generation • Computer-aided process control (SCADA) Computer-aided process control (SCADA) Generic Flowchart of a Pyrolysis Plant RDF Energy Recovery System Mounting the RDF Energy Recovery System in Plovdiv (BG) Feedstock Specification Product RDF Size 4-20mm Water Contents < 10 % (ideally) < 15 % Input quantity up to 3000 kg/h End Products Specification The plant has the capacity to generate: Purified gases ca. 800 m3/h - used as a source of energy in module "Co-generation" and to provide process heat Solid residue (char) up to 700 kg/h - used for aggregates in the chemicals industry, production of activated carbon and more.; Liquid fraction up to 1500 kg/h Power up to 3000 kW/h Heat up to 4500kW/h Energy and Environment Pyrolysis either solves or minimises: Dependence on fossil fuels The problem of disposal of solid waste CO2 emissions Waste treatment combined with energy production (fossil fuel savings) Soil conservation by reducing percentage of waste going to landfill Groundwater conservation Reducing air emissions (GHGs, POPs).
