EQTEC Kinetic Model

EQTEC Kinetic Model (“EKM”)

The EQTEC Kinetic Model (“EKM”) platform is a powerful simulation tool based on a computer assisted kinetic model, capable of predicting the thermochemical processes of solid degradation that take place in a gasification plant with EGT technology. This computer simulation by numerical models allows the optimal conditions of gasification of each residue to be determined according to its chemical composition.

EKM combines simulation using both equilibrium models (Stoichiometric Methods and Thermodynamic Equilibrium) with dynamic models including “finite” reaction kinetics for pyrolysis, gasification, combustion of gaseous species and char. It integrates these processes consecutively just as they take place in a real installation.
