Syngas Italy

Syngas Italy

Syngas Italy is an Integrated Biomass Gasification Power Plant (“IBGPP”), located in the Italian region of Tuscany.

The project is designed to produce clean electricity from biomass utilising EQTEC Gasification Technology and Jenbacher engine, with an electrical output capacity of 1.0 MWe.

The gasification plant consists of a bubbling fluidised bed reactor which improves the mixture of inert material and fuel for its high rate of heat transfer and to achieve high heating rates, among other advantages.

The IBGPP was designed using the EQTEC Kinetic Model (“EKM”) software to determine the construction specifications of all the components used in the gasification plant to obtain greater efficiency and to run continuously on automatic mode.
