March, 2009 – The Beltran Cogeneration Biomass System,
developed by Beltran Technologies, not only eliminates waste, it also
generates vital electric power and heat.
The system can be used for the gasification of wood and agricultural
The system consists of highly engineered machinery working in unison to reduce
waste and create valuable energy
Wood and agricultural waste is placed on a conveyor, which feeds the
waste directly to the gasifier.
The waste is gasified with a specific amount of controlled oxygen to
ensure a usable flow of gas. The
gas is channelled to a cyclone, where large particles, called char, are
removed. The gas stream is then
sent to a wet electrostatic precipitator, where it is cleaned at the sub-micron
level, then to a dryer to reduce its saturation, and finally to the
engine. The engine produces
electric power for operational use or sale to the grid. The system also produces heat, which
can be used for various purposes.
