Avedøre straw-fired plant  

Biomass energy

We have supplied systems for more than 50 biomass plants worldwide. Our expertise covers a wide spectrum of biomass, including: wood chips, pellets, saw dust, wheat straw, barley, rice straw, bark, and bagasse.

Biomass is a renewable energy source consisting of living or recently living organisms. Generally, this means plants and trees in the form of industrial and agricultural scrap. We pioneered the use of biomass as an environmentally friendly energy source and have supplied systems for more than 50 biomass plants worldwide.

Choice of fuel determines choice of technology

Our expertise covers a wide spectrum of biomass, including: wood chips, pellets, saw dust, wheat straw, barley, rice straw, bark, and bagasse. This is important as the individual fuel will determine the specific technological options, which differ from the factors normally used to choose waste-to-energy technologies.

We base your plant design on the physical and chemical properties of your fuel as well as your specific needs in terms of output - being hot water or steam – your labour situation, etc.

Environmentally friendly closed-carbon cycle

The amount of CO2 returned to the atmosphere when biomass fuels are burned is almost identical to the amount that was removed from the atmosphere while these organisms were growing. This maintains a closed carbon cycle, which significantly reduces the environmental impact.

Although fossil fuels are technically also “organic,” millions of years separate the time during which CO2 was originally absorbed by the plant, dinosaur, or other organism, and its release back into the atmosphere. This is why we are now experiencing global warming.

On-going technological development

We are continuously developing our range of boiler, grate, and firing systems – systems which enable us to fulfil our clients’ needs and expectations regarding CHP plants. Our expertise and our technologies ensure the best possible energy utilization and reliability while minimising the carbon footprint.
