True Green Energy Group (TGEG) informed that it has signed an agreement with Beltrans for the delivery of renewable energy technology in San Fernando Pampanga. The gasification plant is designed with a modular conception, which has multi gasification units. A standard MSW gasification system with a capacity of 50 tons/day has been included in the plant.
The gasification system will supply syngas at 4000 nm3/hr to syngas power generation system unit per system. A probable power output of around 2 MWe with an exceptional amount of thermal heat about 2 MWth is expected to be generated from the gasification plant.
Beltran’s gasification system consists of a gasifier reactor with ash discharge and has heat exchangers, cyclone filters, gas suction blower, WESP, syngas flare stack, pipe work, steel frame structure and control system instruments. The gasifier systems are used to convert upto 2 tons of dry biomass/hr to combustible syngas. A variety of solid wastes including domestic waste, industrial waste etc. are processed to produce syngas. Syngas, in turn, will be converted to heat or electricity by dual fueled engine generators. It can also be utilized for production of chemicals.
A method named ‘extrusion ‘is followed for the production of RDF fuel pellets. The powdered mass is forced into a ‘die’, a square or round cavity, with high pressure and when subjected to suitable conditions, the biomass joins together to form a pellet. These pellets will be sold as 18 kg bags. These pellets will be easy to handle and store.
Air pollution and water pollution by solid waste will be minimized due to the above process.
True Green Energy Group is involved in the processing of wastes and waste management, and Beltran is well known for its gasification plants and electrostatic precipitators.
