The main direction of our technologies starts with conversion of biowastes (such as biomass, food industry waste, sorted municipal waste, sewage sludge, etc.) to electricity and synthetic fuels (such as methanol, kerosene, diesel fuel, DME and hydrogen), where some of the products are classified as renewable (not causing net emissions of CO2). The intermediate factor in all these processes is clean synthetic gas (syngas) which is a mixture of carbon monoxide CO and hydrogen H2. Additionally, there are applications reflecting the versatility of PARS techology by itself, such as hydrocarbon (incl. flare gas) reformation into syngas. Where reformed feedstock does not contain mineral fractions and can be suitably vapourized, no gasifier is necessary and feedstocks can be reformed by PARS alone.
Until now, efficient gas cleanup was the biggest challenge in organic waste gasification, as the remaining content of vapourized fractions of tar and soot resulted in their deposits in the gas tract of gensets, leading to their accelerated wear and premature damage.
Our power plants assure the lowest operating costs (<0.025 Eu/kWh) and the highest efficiency (1.2 – 1.8 kWh/kg biowaste) for a specific combination of a genset and a feedstock, due to exceptionally low energy consumption by PARS, allowing the absence of energy-robbing mechanical gas filtration. In certain cases, the income derived by the plant operator from utilization of the biowastes (in the form of the tipping fees or the value of the cleared land) can outweigh low operating costs, so that the cost of the energy products actually becomes NEGATIVE.
