WHAT IS COGENERATION?

Cogeneration, often referred to as Combined Heat and Power, represents the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single energy source, in an integrated system, in order to either [...]

WHAT IS GASIFICATION?

Gasification is a high temperature thermochemical degradation process that, in a low-oxygen environment (partial oxidation), turns carbonaceous solid feedstock into a flammable synthesis gas (syngas) with a determined heating value, [...]

WHAT IS BIOMASS?

The European Directive 2009/28/EC - Article 2 (e) – defines the biomass as the biodegradable fraction of products, waste and residues from biological origin from agriculture (including vegetal and animal substances), [...]

WHAT IS BIOCHAR?

Biochar is a solid material obtained from the carbonization (thermochemical conversion) of biomass in an oxygen-limited environment: in more technical terms, biochar is produced by thermal decomposition of organic material [...]

SELF CONSUMPTION OR GRID-TIE?

The first installations of SYNGASMART® CHPs were done in Italy, where feed-in tariffs support investments in clean energy generation technologies: in other words, an economic incentive is paid for each [...]

WHO IS USING SYNGASMART®?

SYNGASMART® is the perfect solution for energivorous contexts looking for a tool to improve energy efficiency, costs and consequently the overall business performance; users can be listed into 4 categories: [...]

GASIFICATION VS COMBUSTION

Gasification is a much cleaner conversion process than combustion: it generates its own fuel from biomass, instead of burning it, thus preventing some pollutants to be created, like SOx, NOx [...]

THE BENEFITS OF COGENERATION

Biomass cogeneration offers several advantages, compared to other renewable energy technologies like sun or wind power; let’s just name few of them: It is programmable and does not depend on [...]
