  • Haloclean technology: energy from biomass

    1. 1. Pyrolysis of Biomass to produce Energy carriers for cogeneration Haloclean ® Coauthors: Mr. Scova Alessandro Sea Marconi Technologies www.seamarconi.com Presented by: Mr. Tumiatti Vander Founder and President of Sea Marconi, Turin (Italy)
    2. 2. Sea Marconi <ul><li>Solutions for energy and the environment since 1968 </li></ul><ul><li>Headquartered in Torino (Italy), present also in France, Spain, Germany and Argentina </li></ul><ul><li>Core business : decontamination/detoxification of insulating liquids from pollutants and hazardous substances </li></ul><ul><li>3.000+ customers in 15 countries, mainly in the energy and heavy industry sectors </li></ul><ul><li>100+ employees </li></ul><ul><li>A long tradition of innovation : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>40+ patents in Europe and US </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Member of several international technical committees (IEC, CEN, CIGRE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Certified by the Italian Ministry of the University and Research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research cooperation with several national and international Universities and research centers </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Haloclean ® project <ul><li>Haloclean ® was born as a research project aimed at finding a way to recycle part of the electronic waste (WEEE) through a innovative pyrolysis process, funded by the European Commission in two rounds (1999-2005) </li></ul><ul><li>Developed in cooperation with several European partners, with a strong contribution from FZK </li></ul><ul><li>Patented by Sea Marconi in Europe (EP 1354172 B1) and in several non European countries (PCT) </li></ul><ul><li>At present the most promising application for this technology is the conversion of biomass into intermediate fuels for heat and power generation </li></ul><ul><li>Haloclean ® BioEnergy </li></ul>
    4. 4. Haloclean ® Pyrolysis <ul><li>Haloclean ® is a proprietary intermediate pyrolysis process </li></ul><ul><li>In case some specific “valuable” biomasses are used (e.g. woody or oil bearing biomass) the process can be coupled with minor modifications with cogeneration system based on engines specifically adapted for low heating value fuels </li></ul>
    5. 5. The European support to renewable energy <ul><li>Directive 2001/77/EC (objectives for the production of green energy) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Italy (Decree 387/2003 and subsequent modifications): sale at market price plus tradable green certificates (15 years) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Germany (EEG-2004): subsidized prices (for 20 years) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other member Countries have implemented adequate support measures </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Action plan on biomasses by EC (December 2005) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>New more ambitious objectives for biomasses within 2010 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Small scale power generation is normally supported in a preferential manner, at least in some Member States (e.g. Italy and Germany) </li></ul>
    6. 6. The Haloclean ® flexible response Haloclean Biomass (primary or waste) Coke Fuel oil Gas Energy conversion (combustion), soil conditioner (biochar) Co generation De-centralised use (from 0 through 100%) Electric power Heat Integrated co-generation Bio refining “ premium” fuel Process energy (optional) (option) (option)
    7. 7. <ul><li>High flexibility in terms of feedstock </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Compared to gasification (known to be very sensitive to feedstock variations) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Compared to fast pyrolysis processes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Some type of biomass are becoming “unpopular”, especially for primary biomass </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Doubts on the overall energy balance and environmental impact (fertilizers, water, logistics, …) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social issues to take into account (competition with food/feed applications and use of available land) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Feedstock price fluctuations can kill profitability </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Flexibility allows to employ a wide variety of biomasses, ranging from those with a high energy content to those with a low economic value and environmental impact (e.g. farming and forestry residues) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Providing a shield against market price fluctuations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adaptation to the specific national support measures is feasible </li></ul></ul>Technological advantage
    8. 8. Application flexibility <ul><li>Haloclean technology is adaptable to different applications depending on the biomass to be treated (primary, farming residues, residues from food industry, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Modifying the dimension of the plant and the relevant process parameters, still keeping the underlying base configuration, different customized solutions are possible in terms of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Feedstock </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Throughput </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Which output fraction should be favoured </li></ul></ul>
    9. 9. A 10 year long research cooperation <ul><li>Current process layout and its technical setup were developed during a long scientific research cooperation started in 1999 (2005 for biomass applications) with Prof. Andreas Hornung (formerly at FZK – Germany) </li></ul><ul><li>During these years many application scenarios have been considered and several primary and residual biomasses have been tested </li></ul><ul><ul><li>in lab scale (up to ~10 kg/h) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in pilot scale (up to ~100 kg/h) </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Setup of the pilot scale plant Heat & Power unit Pyrolysis reactor Dust filter Oil condensation Char separation
    11. 11. Coconut (residue) Straws (in pellets) Rape (seeds) Rape (residue) Olive (residue) Rice (husk) Some treated biomasses
    12. 12. … and output products Oil Coke
    13. 13. Entering the industrial stage <ul><li>Based on the same process layout tested in pilot scale, a new industrial scale Haloclean ® plant has been built (currently in the commissioning phase) </li></ul><ul><li>Nominal capacity: 12,000 tpy </li></ul><ul><li>Direct coupling of proper CHP units is targeted for both liquid and gas phase </li></ul>
    14. 14. Plant Layout Pyrolysis reactor
    15. 15. Plant under construction
    16. 16. <ul><li>Cooperation with University of Aston (Prof. Hornung) through a research agreement, keeping alive a long term research partnership </li></ul><ul><li>Target: optimization of the Haloclean reactor and integration with a gasification system ( vapours cracking ) to produce a permanent gas from “poor” biomass, still keeping the high flexibility in terms of feedstock of the Haloclean ® system </li></ul>Ongoing research activities
