  11. 11. Walloon Market• Belgian target for renewable energy in 2020 is 13% of the final energy consumption.• Wallonia goes greener ? a target RE of 20% and 30% for green electricity. (decisions pending)• In 2010, Wallonia used around 147 TWh of energy; o RE cover 6.2% of the final energy consumption (9.1 TWh) o Biomass accounts for more than 85% of the renewable energy production  5.5 TWh are produced by biomass CHP (1.25 TWh of electricity)  0.2 TWh by biogas plants  1.5 TWh for residential heating (pellets boilers, stoves, etc.) and the rest is coming from biofuel o Biomass will remain the most important RE source for the 2020 target 11
  12. 12. Walloon Pellets Production There are 8 companies that produce pellets with a total capacity of 500,000 tons/year. However, most of the pellets consumption is imported (Canada, Eastern Europe, etc.) for biomass CHP or the heating market. Capacity (tons/year) Source: The World of Pellets, Bioenergy 2010 12
  13. 13. Belgium Pellets MarketsThe wood pellet market in Belgium is characterized by a large demand for industrial pellets for(co-)firing in power production, a young pellet production industry with limited production and afast developing market for residential pellet heating.The total pellet consumption in Belgium in 2008 is estimated at 920,000 tons of whicharound 800,000 tons were industrial pellets consumed for power production.The Green Certificate Scheme in Belgium contributed to stimulating the demand for solid biofuels,including pellets, for electricity generation by (co)combustion, Electrabel (GDF Suez) being themajor consumer of industrial wood pellets in Belgium.This sector largely relies on pellet imports from Germany, Eastern Europe and North America andis expected to be growing significantly in the next years.It is estimated that around 325,000 tons of pellets were produced by at least 10 producers in2008. Four of them are DINplus certified (October 2009) and it is expected that a good share ofthe domestic production in Belgium is targeting the domestic heating market. Since stoves are themain pellet appliance, the majority of pellets are probably traded in bags. Some of the larger pelletplants produce exclusively for the power sector. Large exports are not reported.The consumption of high quality pellets in the heating market can be roughly estimated at120,000 tons in 2008, meaning that more than 11 kg of pellets were consumed per capita. This iscomparable to the situation in Germany. However, in contrast to Germany, stoves are the mainpellet appliance in Belgium. Source: The World of Pellets, Bioenergy 2010 13

  29. 29. Biomethanation Principles Crops/ Farm ResiduesPRINCIPLESAnaerobic digestion of organic mattersleading to the generation of methane andcarbon dioxideProcess involves three steps : 1. Hydrolysis 2. Acidification 3. Acetogenesis 4. MethanogenesisProcess can be carried out in a single step or a two steps 29
  30. 30. Biomethanation Technologies Power Production - Walloon Companies / Technologies GreenWatt - from the feasibility study to the construction and start-up of the installations, turnkey projects - developed an innovative biomethanation technology; Unlike traditional technologies, this technology – called two-stage – enables energy production at a local scale on the basis of plant residues without any need for external contribution (liquid manure, etc.). - offers a simple, efficient solution for purifying the COD-laden water evacuated by the food-processing industry. Walloon Technology, Patented FAD (Flushing Anaerobic Digestor), developped by GreenWatt is an original design of a digestor (methaniser) with high yield incorporating a system of unpatching and renewing of the 30

  32. 32. Biomethanation TechnologiesRealco developed an expertise in enzyme-based hydrolysis processes.Enzymes degrade organic macromolecules, these elements are more watersoluble and more easily assimilable by microorganisms. Hydrolysis is thelimiting step for bacterial assimilation and thus for biological effluent treatmentsuch as biomethanation. 32
  33. 33. Biomethanation TechnologiesThe enzymatic hydrolysis developed by Realco focus on a pre-treatment of thesubstrate before its introduction into the digester.This strong pre-treatment allows to accomplish:- substrate liquefaction and homogenization, influent viscosity decrease- substrate biodigestibility increase, i.e. Increase of the substrate assimilation rateby microorganisms population responsible for the production of biogas and energy.Biomethanation- Increase energy with enzymatic solutions- Provides solution for overloaded / undersized digesters- Increase biogas production- Improve digester yield- Accelerate digesters (re)startApplicationsSubstrates difficult to treat but having great interest regarding their methanogenicpotential Digester yieldFor any substrates : fat, manure and litter, food industry waste, household waste,WWTP sludges, etc... 33
