Many of our research and development activities are carried out in cooperation with neutral partners – universities and research institutes. In fact, our projects are frequently sponsored in part by national and international research programmes. That’s because we are searching for better solutions – not merely justification for our current practices. In fact, this is the entire philosophy behind our NextBAT® technologies, developed in partnership with Götaverken Miljö AB in Sweden.
Partners and research institutes
We currently work with the following internationally recognised centres of higher learning:
And our Swedish subsidiary Götaverken Miljö is working with:
Our own test centre in Esbjerg, Denmark
We maintain a comprehensive test centre at our manufacturing headquarters in Esbjerg, Denmark. Here, we have test boilers and other process units, which are constantly being studied by our engineering staff. Our on-going goals are to improve efficiency, reduce wear and maintenance, and eliminate negative environmental impact - which ultimately leads to greater profitability for our customers.
Most recently, we have teamed with Aalborg University to expand the range of bio energy test facilities in Esbjerg, Denmark. As of June, 2011, we are able to conduct detailed research into the behaviour of biomass as a fuel and optimisation of related technologies.
Gasification test centre
In 2011, we took over an existing gasification test facility from Firgas. Our goals are to find a method by which we can create pure gas from wood chips. By “pure,” we mean without nitrogen or tar. This could potentially revolutionise the biomass industry by simplifying the production process, eliminating pollutants, and dramatically reducing the size and cost of a biomass facility. Our current goal is to develop a proof-of-concept process that will allow us to build a 2 MW demonstration facility. Thus far, the results look very promising indeed.
Over the years we have gained a solid, worldwide reputation as a supplier of proven technology. But who says “proven technology” can't be improved?
