The project will be carried out through the European business consortium POLYGEN
EBIOSS ENERGY, through its subsidiary EQTEC Iberia, which is part of the POLYGEN consortium, has obtained approval for the construction of a waste gasification plant in Poland by the EIT (InnoEnergy and Technology Institute) Review Committee , A body dependent on the European Union.
Sofia (Bulgaria), February 23, 2017.
The POLYGEN consortium foresees a potential market for this synthetic natural gas (TAM) technology of 3,240 million euros until 2027 and its main objective in the first phase is the commercialization of this technology in Europe for, with Introduced throughout the world.
The approval by the European Union is the first step towards the construction of a plant for the generation of synthetic natural gas (SNG), electricity and heat from alternative fuels such as sewage sludge, solid urban waste (MSW) and biomass, which Will contribute to the circular economy of the neighboring municipalities to the plant, converting the waste generated in energy that will be destined to energy demands of the zone. This project will promote both environmental sustainability and the development of the local economy. The aforementioned consortium will build the plant in Poland and the design, construction and commissioning of the plant will start this year.
The company EQTEC, a subsidiary of EBIOSS ENERGY, a business group specializing in the transformation of waste into energy, participates in the POLYGEN project by providing its exclusive and patented gasification technology (EGT EQTEC GASIFIER TECHNOLOGY), a gasification technology based on a bed reactor Bubbling fluid that uses a wide range of residues (CDR and sludge) and biomass as fuel. The estimated turnover of EQTEC Iberia in this project is 500,625 euros and the estimated total investment of the project is 4.3 million euros.
“This approval of an EU institution with as much recognition as the EIT InnoEnergy Review Committee does, in fact, imply the definitive endorsement of the technology for the generation of electricity by solid urban waste that starts in Europe and which has a great potential Of growth around the world, “says Ebioss CEO Luis Sanchez “Our technology follows the current demand of today’s society to generate ‘clean’ electricity and to eliminate or, at least temporarily, to reduce urban solid waste and the cost of its treatment by cities,” added Sanchez.
The consortium that will build the plant is made up of seven highly specialized European companies and leaders in their respective areas of business. The companies that make up the consortium are: Rafako, Tauron, Exergon and IChPW (Poland), Atmostat and CEA (France) and EQTEC Iberia (Spain).
With this new EBIOSS ENERGY project, through its subsidiary EQTEC Iberia, it expands its international presence and increases and diversifies its business, entering into the market of synthetic fuels, with the application of SYNGAS (gas synthesis) for the production of gas Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG), capable of being injected into the national gas network.
