OUR TECH­NO­LOGY

Future­proof - Made in Germany

 

 

The latest genera­tion: The Pyreg PX

Highly effi­cient, extre­mely robust and modu­larly configurable. 

Auto­thermal Process

The PYREG process itself is auto­thermal; meaning that only energy,
gene­rated by the carbo­niz­a­tion of the waste mate­rial, is used to perpe­tuate the opera­tion of the PYREG system.

Requi­re­ments

The only requi­re­ments for the input mate­rial are:

That`s the strength of PYREG:

Multi-Mate­rial Capability

Carbo­niz­a­tion is a process that has been known for many centu­ries. However, only the PYREG process allows the precise control of the para­me­ters, so that carbon products can be produced in various quality grades and nutri­ents can be recy­cled gently.
As the PYREG system carbo­nizes the input mate­rial at tempe­ra­tures of up to 750°C, organic-based pollut­ants (such as solvents and micro­plastics) are prac­ti­cally elimi­nated and mineral pollut­ants are filtered, to ensure they cannot re-enter the envi­ron­ment.
Effi­cient, climate friendly and without harmful by-products: You can rely on us – we are the world market leader.

Our service for you starts with the analysis of your resi­dual mate­rials.
It gives us clarity about what kind of end product you can expect.

Possible appli­ca­tions
– depen­dent on the input material

This is our strength: Only PYREG systems can recycle such a wide range of hete­ro­ge­neous, biogenic residues.

Only PYREG can do that:
Control of carbonization

Only the PYREG process allows such precise control of the carbo­niz­a­tion para­me­ters; there­fore, carbon products can be produced in diffe­rent quality grades, ensu­ring that raw mate­rials, such as phos­phorus, can be gently recy­cled.
At the same time, organic-based pollut­ants (such as solvents and micro­plastics) are virtually elimi­nated and mineral-based pollut­ants are filtered out at tempe­ra­tures of up to 750°C. Effi­cient, climate-friendly and without harmful by-products.

What is Carbonization?

Carbo­niz­a­tion is the conver­sion of carbon-contai­ning mate­rials such as food waste, sewage sludge, pack­a­ging waste, car tires or indus­trial waste into carbon, through the appli­ca­tion of heat under low-oxygen condi­tions. In other words, the input mate­rial is not inci­ne­rated, but ther­mally degassed at low tempe­ra­tures and comple­tely sanitized.

Carbonization materials

CARBO­NIZ­A­TION – EFFI­CIENT AND PROFITABLE

Usable energy

The carbo­niz­a­tion process is self-sustai­ning; after comple­tion of the acti­va­tion phase no further external energy is required to run the process, as the energy from the waste is suffi­cient for the conti­nu­ance of the thermal treat­ment. It is even possible to benefit from the excess heat produced; an amount from 150 up to 750 kWth may be used for drying of humid biomass, for heating or power generation.

Auto­thermal process

The PYREG process itself is auto­thermal; meaning that only energy, gene­rated by the carbo­niz­a­tion of the waste mate­rial, is used to perpe­tuate the opera­tion of the PYREG system.

Thermal hygie­niz­a­tion

The PYREG process is a conti­nuous method and uses the principle of dry carbo­niz­a­tion. For that purpose, the input mate­rial (at least 65% dry matter content) is not inci­ne­rated, but first degassed at a tempe­ra­ture of 500-750 °C and then, by admis­sion of a well-defined air stream, carbo­nized. The mate­rial passes through the PYREG reactor, trans­ported by conveyor screws. As this process enables users to precisely adjust treat­ment para­me­ters like tempe­ra­ture control, carbo­niz­a­tion time and admis­sion of primary air, the optimum quality of the final product can be achieved.

No Harm­full By-Products

As the combus­tible gas, gene­rated in the PYREG reac­tors, is comple­tely burned by the FLOX® method (flameless oxida­tion) at a tempe­ra­ture of 1,000 °C inside a sepa­rate combus­tion chamber, thermal NOx is signi­fi­cantly avoided. The forma­tion of proble­matic subs­tances like oils or tar is suppressed as well, because the carbo­niz­a­tion gas is not cooled, but oxidized in the combus­tion chamber.

Inside an optional flue gas clea­ning system, harmful acid gases are absorbed by means of an alka­line flue gas scrubber, whereas vola­tile compon­ents, like mercury, are retained by char­coal filters.

Join the Carbon Sink Economy 

We have had our plant types certi­fied with EBC. This is a volun­tary industry stan­dard in Europe desi­gned to ensure harmo­nized and veri­fiable stan­dards for climate-protec­tive biochar production.

By upcy­cling plant biomasses into climate-protec­ting biochar, your produc­tion becomes climate-posi­tive. Any addi­tional CO2 storage capa­city can be sold as CO2 certi­fi­cates on the volun­tary market. Our partner, Carbon­fu­ture, is the first trading plat­form that meets the high EBC stan­dards. Here, based on our type certi­fi­ca­tion, some of our custo­mers are already listed. Become part of this pionee­ring carbon sink industry!
