The technology is ideal for companies or institutions having large amounts of biomass and/or plastic waste,
such as biogas plants, disposal companies, airports, municipalities, food industry, forestry and agriculture
– in general, all companies producing plastic waste or organic waste material and having high disposal costs.
It is particularly effective if CHP generated energy (heat and electricity) is used on-site.
The Pyro-BAF technology can be combined with other bioenergy systems very well, optimally for example with biogas
plants. After fermentation the digestates of biogas plants are normally used as a fertilizer. Currently the
recycling of manure and digestate as fertilizer is allowed in Germany, but the use is not allowed anymore in
other countries causing disposal problems there.
Pyrolysis can exploit the digestate once more. The residual waste volume is minimised. Due to the removal of
hydrocarbons the fertilizer value of the residual material is once more compacted by generating biochar.
It can be used without problems as a high quality fertilizer – comparable to "Terra Preta"
– or an energy carrier.
The energy sources generated by the BAF (gas and diesel) are converted into power and heat in the CHP, along with
The separated water is fed to the biogas plant. Laboratory tests at the Harper Adams University in the UK showed up
to 25% higher methane yield in the fermenter through the addition of the process water.
Turn your waste into a valuable resource instead of expensive disposal!
