Multi-fuel energy

Compiling and integrating various combustion technologies means that many types of fuel can be used in the same plant, making plants less dependent on a single type of fuel.

The biomass and waste-to-energy plants of the future will be based on a much higher degree of flexibility. Compiling and integrating various combustion technologies means that many types of fuel can be used in the same plant, making the plants less dependent on a single type of fuel.

Unique experience with waste and biomass leads to new multi-fuel technology

Our multi-fuel technology is the result of more than 80 years of waste-to-energy innovation and more than 30 years of biomass experience. We have developed a unique integration process for these fuels. Our experience has given us a unique opportunity to combine know-how and technology and this has resulted in the introduction of our new multi-fuel technology.

Designing for fuel flexibility

Today there are a large number of plants, each of which uses different types of biomass to produce energy. Some exclusively use straw, others wood chips, and still others have taken a step further and now fire with multi-fuel – a mixture of various kinds of biomass, contaminated bio waste, and certain types of refuse-derived fuels (RDF).

Ability to handle RDF and SRF fuels

Contaminated bio waste from the demolition industry, solid -recovered fuels (SRF), and refuse-derived fuels (RDF), are all attractive fuels in the low-price category. Most of these fuels contain small amount of paint, metal, etc., which place new demands on the combustion- and flue gas- cleaning technology, as the plant must comply with the various waste-incineration directives. 

Less dependency on seasonal fuels

The primary advantage of our multi-fuel solutions is that they provide more opportunities to use locally available biomass. Instead of having to store biomass fuel or collect it from other areas, these multi-fuel energy plants can interchange fuels and maintain steady production throughout the year, without waiting for. Other benefits include savings on transport and fuel storage.
