UNTREATED WOOD

Wood residues are widely available. This untapped potential can be recovered locally with NOTAR® gasification. Our turnkey power plants are best fitted for the local conversion of untreated wood residues into a clean syngas to power various applications.

Illustration 2 A world of opportunities

A world of opportunities

Production of wood residues arise at each step of the forest industry

» Forest management creates residues with energy content
» By-products from forest industry contain energy
» Wooden products (pallets, drums)  are a renewable fuel

Wood industry consumes large amounts of electricity and heat

 

Biomass residues become valuable with NOTAR® gasifier

» Syngas recovers the energy contained in the untreated wood
» Syngas powers cogeneration engines (electricity and heat) or industrial applications

TREATED WOOD

Treated wood are collected by communities and on industrial premises. Without adequate solutions, waste collectors turn to incinerator or landfill dump. Both solutions do not allow local entities and waste collectors to fully valorise their own contaminated wood waste into energy.

Large amount of biomass available everywhere!

Collected wood waste is available locally

» Treated wood collected on industrial premises
» Construction and demolition wood waste
» Wood collected by communities

Today, management of treated wood is expensive

» Woodwaste is an heterogeneous waste stream
»
Woodwaste management is striclty regulated

Treated wood becomes valuable locally with NOTAR® gasifier

» Treated wood is widely available
» 
Energy content of the treated wood is recovered in the syngas
» Syngas powers cogeneration engines (electricity and heat) or industrial applications

 

IMPREGNATED WOOD

Wood products can be heavily impregnated with substances to either enhance some properties or extend their lifetime. In Europe, impregnated wood is classified as hazardous waste; its disposal is strictly regulated.

Former wooden crossties are systematically
replaced by concrete crossties

Impregnated wooden products are polluted

» Railway sleepers are heavily impregnated with creosote and contain heavy metals
» Wooden poles are impregnated with creosote (communication and electrical lines)

Impregnated wood is discarded at a high and unpredictable cost

» Woodwaste management is striclty regulated
» 
Elimination of woodwaste is expensive

Impregnated woodwaste becomes valuable with NOTAR® gasifier.

» Energy content of the impregnated wood is recovered in the syngas for CHP or industrial application
» As any tar, creosote is destroyed in the combustion zone of the NOTAR® gasifier.
» 99% of heavy metals is concentrated into the Biochar

Xylowatt proved NOTAR® can handle impregnated wood with high efficiency while respecting emission limits.

» Emissions of CHP demo plant was controlled by regulatory body: measures respect the most drastic regulation (2000/76/EC directive).

RADIONUCLIDES CONTAMINATED WOOD WASTE

Forests capture and store radionuclides spread in the environment, but they are not able to neutralise these contaminants. Consequently, nuclear disasters have left great quantity of wood contaminated by radionuclides (Cs137).

Forest fires are a risk of pollutant dispersion

Forest captured radionuclides

» Level of radionuclides found in the forest is a health threat to the food chain
» Potential fires constitutes a high risk of dispersion of radioactive elements in the environment

This feedstock cannot be valorised by combustion that would disperse contaminated particles

XYLOWATT proposes an industrial solution to contaminated forests management

» Thanks to the unique NOTAR® design, the Cs137 condenses in the biochar and is not present in the syngas
» 
Combustion of clean syngas doesn’t disperse contaminated particles in the environment

NOTAR® is proven to be an efficient technology to cleanly valorise contaminated wood into energy

» NOTAR® is referenced by the Japanese administration as a potential solution for the management of contaminated areas.

PRODUCE RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY AND HEAT

Syngas powers cogeneration engines


Clean syngas produced by NOTAR® technology is used to power cogeneration engines (CHP) for combined production of heat and power.

NOTAR® is the best solution in the power range from  the 0.35 to 2.5 MWe.

NOTAR® power plants are fully automatized.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES OF NOTAR® FOR CHP

NOTAR® CONVERTS YOUR AGRICULTURAL WASTE INTO ENERGY 

 

Most agricultural waste are characterised by high mineral matter content and low ash melting point. These characteristics make it a difficult fuel to handle by conventional gasification technologies.

» NOTAR® gasifier is able to treat biomasses with high mineral matter content (up to 30%db).

» NOTAR® gasification offers a solution to efficiently convert agro residues into a clean syngas.

Xylowatt’s technology allows users to value high mineral content agro-residues.

Ability to gasify your agricultural waste should be defined on a case by case basis.

 


Crop Agricultural Wastes
Coconut Fronds – husk – shell
Coffee Hull – husk
Corn – Maize Cob – stover – stalks – leaves
Wheat Wheat – husk
Nuts Hulls
Peanuts Shells
Rice Hull – husk – straw – stalks
Grape
Sugarcane Bagasse
Fruit industry Nut shells – hulls – olive & grape pomace

NOTAR® VALORISES SEWAGE SLUDGE INTO ELECTRICITY AND HEAT

Sewage sludge is mostly composed of organic matter. With NOTAR® technology, sewage sludge can be converted on site into a clean syngas.

Current elimination of sewage sludge is expensive

Sludge-illu-1

Xylowatt adds value to sludge

Sludge-illu-2

NOTAR® gasification is a sustainable and profitable solution

Integration of NOTAR® gasification plant on existing water treatment plants is an attractive solution to convert sewage sludge into a valuable energy.

» NOTAR® gasifier is able to convert solid fuel with mineral matter content up to 30 %db without clinker and sintering.

NOTAR® CONVERTS  INDUSTRIAL WASTE INTO ENERGY

Xylowatt brings a solution
to industrial co-products

Industrial co-products cover a wide range of materials. NOTAR® is a solution to valorise industrial waste providing they contain sufficient level of organic compounds.

Xylowatt proposes its NOTAR® technology as a new valorisation route for this waste, converting it locally into valuable energy: syngas, electricity and heat.

Xylowatt has successfully gasified:

»  Solid Recovered Fuels (“SRF”)
»  Refused Derived Fuels (“RDF”)
»  Tires and conveyor belts

With high heterogeneity of the industrial waste, dimensioning parameters should be assessed on a case by case basis.

CLEAN SYNGAS FOR MULTIPLE USES

NOTAR® gasifier developed by Xylowatt is the sole technology producing a clean syngas (NO-TAR) that is easily conditioned to meet your goals.

» Combustion in gas engines for heat and electricity cogeneration

» Direct combustion as substitute to fossil fuels, in industrial processes
