WASTE TO ENERGY TECHNOLOGY!

cropped-wpp-logo-s1.pngWPP Energy Corp, a national U.S. nonprofit organization, promotes effective clean energy policies, develops low carbon technology innovation strategies and works on new financial tools to stabilize greenhouse gas emissions. WPP concentrates on climate and clean energy issues at the state, national and international levels, as it works with diverse stakeholders from governments as well as the private and nonprofit sectors.

WPP assists states to create and implement innovative practices and public funding programs to advance clean energy markets and project deployment; creates networks of U.S. and international policy makers to address climate stabilization; advances effective, 21st century distributed innovation theories for climate technology; develops new finance and commercialization tools; and works to attract new investors to move clean energy technologies to the market more quickly.

WPP work is designed to greatly accelerate the commercialization of breakthrough low carbon technologies and to massively scale up existing clean energy technologies as rapidly as possible to strengthen the economy and stabilize climate change emissions. WPP is supported by major foundations, state governments and federal agencies.

INTRO

We turn classical gasification upside down. Conventional biogas plants turn the entire input material into a product gas typically by means of pyrolysing the biomass into char and gasifying this by using air.

The WPP System consists of 3 main vessels or bed reactors. The pyrolyzer at the bottom, the steam reformer in the middle and the pre-heater at the top.

PYROLYSER

In its first stage the WPP System separates the input material by pyrolysing it into approximately 20% char and 80% pyro-gas. The char is combusted into a flue gas in order to produce necessary process heat.

STEAM REFORMER

The remaining 80% moves up into the steam reformer. Here the pyrogas is cracked and reformed into a high quality product gas, consisting mainly of hydrogen and carbon.

Steam is generated by passing the hot product gas through a waste heat recovery boiler before it is then quenched and cleaned.

STAGED REFORMING

The steam reformer is a simple homogenous purely gas phased reaction.
It is spatially separated from the pyrolyzer – therefore STAGED REFORMING

HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT GAS

Unlike with common biomass gasification processes the product gas generated in the Blue Tower is very high in quality because it is unaffected from the flue gas from the char combustion.

Common biogas plants achieve a product gas with approximately 30-50 % calorific value, where as the Blue Tower’s product gas achieves around 80% efficiency.

HEAT CARRIER

A key feature of the Blue Tower is the use of a circulating bulk material as the heat carrying medium. This ensures that the heat carrying surfaces are always clean and that the input material such as sewage sludge maintains the required process heat.

This makes it easily possible to use biomass input material which in other systems causes slogging, fouling and corrosion.

HEAT PROCESS

The heat is transferred from the char combustion flue gas to the inert bulk heat carrier inside a simple moving bed reactor.

On the way through this process (circulating to the top) the heat carrier first gives off its heat to the reformer and then the pyrolyzer.

The advantage of using a heat carrier circuit and a motor flue gas circuit is that the different waste heats can be collected and used to supply the collected heat where it is needed.

INTELLIGENT PROCESS – ONLY Simple Equipment Needed

  • The pyrolyzer and the reformer occur in separate gravity driven moving bed reactors. No further equipment is mounted inside.
  • The heat carrying medium is moved by mechanical drive and gravity.
  • At the end the Blue Tower generates electricity out of garbage like a power station out of coal or natural gas.

INPUT TO OUTPUT EFFICIENCY RATIO

  • This highly depends on the input material, it is also depend on the type of technology of waste process as well, a very broad estimate for separated dried household waste is 1 ton of input generating 1.3MW – 1.7MW electric net output. The calorific value is approx. 12 – 14 MJ/Nm3. The Blue Tower has a gross electric efficiency of 80%.
  • In order to determine the exact value a detailed analysis of the input material must be submitted.

WASTE GASIFICATION

WPP Gasification process can convert materials normally considered waste into energy and valuable products. In the U.S. alone thousands of tons of a potential source of energy are collected and thrown away each week. Most of the waste that we discard from our homes and businesses every day – such as non-recyclable plastics, construction debris, used tires, household trash, and sewage – contains energy. WPP Gasification technology can convert the energy in all of this waste into electric power, substitute natural gas, chemicals, transportation fuels, and fertilizers. Read more

PLASMA GASIFICATION

Some types of gasification use plasma technology, which generates intense heat to initiate and supplement the gasification reactions. Plasma gasification or plasma-assisted gasification we use to convert carbon-containing materials to synthesis gas that we used it to generate power and other useful products, such as transportation fuels.

BIOMASS GASIFICATION

Biomass includes a wide range of materials, including energy crops such as switch grass and micanthus, agricultural sources such as corn husks, wood pellets, lumbering and timbering wastes, yard wastes, construction and demolition waste, and biosolids (treated sewage sludge). Gasification helps recover the energy locked in these materials. Gasification can convert biomass into electricity and products, such as ethanol, methanol, fuels, fertilizers, and chemicals.
