The technology allows the valorisation of low grade biomass and waste into high value end products in a compact, cheap, low emission and modular configuration.
Our unique differentiator, compared to inferior incumbent technologies, is our capability to convert a large range of waste feedstocks into a versatile energy product – a clean, pressurized gas vector with high Hydrogen content.
Our process is true Gasification, which is more versatile than down draft gasification and far less energy hungry than Plasma technology.
The patent protected process exclusive to KEW can be used at high efficiency for multiple end-uses. The compact nature of the technology also allows it to be integrated into future smart infrastructure systems, and fixed and mobile charging platforms for plug in electric vehicles. The Plant can be assembled and operational in under 6 months.
All components within the process have been proven at full scale, with rigorous integration engineering, advanced simulation work and testing.
The technology has undergone extensive due diligence, firstly by the ETI over a 10-month period against significant competition from all over Europe and subsequently also by Peter Brett Assoc. LLP, who concluded that:
“The technology has been risk mitigated to an unprecedented extent. This is the most comprehensive analysis of issues impacting upon plant availability that we have seen in the field”
We are proud of our vastly experienced team who can provide complete D&B and O&M packages.
See it in Action
The site receives a densified fuel that is safe and odourless. A fluidised bed gasifier robustly produces syngas from variable waste. Groundbreaking gas reformation systems remove all contaminants to produce a stable, high quality gas. Power is generated using gas engines specifically adapted for syngas, and plant efficiency is unparalleled at smaller scales.
Crunching the numbers:
million tonnes of UK domestic waste now annually sent to landfill
million tonnes of total UK waste annually sent to landfill
billion pounds: predicted value of the UK waste market over the next 5 years
Potential sites in the UK alone for ‘town scale’ conversion plants
The SEC technology can be applied to a wide range of sectors – multiple end products are possible. The technology allows economic feasibility irrespective of power purchase price, gate fees and other conventional drivers.
