Biomass CHP plants
What is a biomass CHP plant?
Combined heat and power plants (CHP) generate electric power and heat in a single plant. They are fired with oil, natural gas, or coal, as well as biogenic fuels.
If wood, vegetable oil or other biogenic fuels are used, the CHP is described as a biomass-fired plant.
Would a biomass-fired plant be of interest for me?
The generation of heating, cooling, and power from biogenic fuels contributes to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere, i.e. active climate protection. Consequently, such projects are of interest in terms of CO2-neutral production.
Hereby, the technical feasibility of such installations is not a decisive factor for their efficiency, but their correct sizing and the availability of suitable fuels.
What can we do for you?
eta Energieberatung is backed by many years of experience in the design of plants fired with biomass or other regenerative energy sources. Engineering know-how, inter-disciplinary planning, and the use of synergy effects are essential requisites to ensure a plant’s efficient operation.
Our activities in this field of business include:
eta- projects with Biomass CHP plants
Biomass CHP in the pellet plant Wunsiedel
In the new pellet plant, the heat from three natural gas combined heat and power plants is used to dry the wood chips for pellet production. eta Energieberatung also supported the development of the energy management system (EnMS) for the pellet plant and accompanied the certification process.
Biomass CHP in Wunsiedel
The biomass ORC cogeneration plant built in Wunsiedel has a maximum combustion heat output of 4.8 MW, while the electrical output of the ORC turbine is approx. 0.8 MW. The low temperature heat generated at the condenser of the ORC system is used in the Chip dryer and for internal building heating.
Biomass cogeneration plant Albstadt
The core of the pilot project is the drying of the sewage sludge directly on a wastewater treatment plant with low-temperature waste heat from a wood-fired biomass cogeneration plant. The dried sewage sludge can be easily and environmentally friendly transported and is a welcome and CO2-neutral fuel substitute with high calorific value for the recyclers.
Biomass heating at Lauterbach Castle
At Lauterbach Castle, the old oil heating system was replaced by a woodchip heating system. A neighbor house is also supplied with heat. At the end of 2011, Graf von Hundt commissioned eta Energieberatung with the planning of woodchip heating with a connected district heating network.
