ABSTRACT

A Spanish company working in gasification process to eliminate waste and produce energy with it, is searching CO2 capture / storage technologies (CCS) and/or carbon utilisation technologies (CCU) in order to reduce its carbon footprint. The company is interested in license, commercial agreement with technical assistance or technical cooperation.


FULL DESCRIPTION

A Spanish SME has developed a new gasification process to eliminate waste and produce, at the same time; green energy (electric and /or thermal power), bio-fuels and other profitable products.

The technology is suitable for processing organic wastes with carbonaceous materials (solid urban, industrial and hospital waste, biomass, plastics, tyres, sewage sludge, etc.) regardless of its humidity, composition, calorific value and morphology.

By means of this gasification process the company is able to eliminate up to 96% of the incoming waste. Additionally, it obtains inert ashes. The inert ashes obtained in the process is a by-product that can be used as input in civil construction, improving thus the cycle of waste valorisation.

In order to further minimise the environmental impact, the company has the objective of reducing the current carbon footprint of this technology, so it is actively seeking carbon dioxide reducing technologies that can be incorporated in the pyrolysis process developed. These technologies could include: 1) CO2 capture/storage technologies (CCS) and/or 2) carbon utilisation technologies (CCU).

The company is highly interested in methods that use electricity, heat or a combination thereof to convert carbon dioxide and water into small molecules with commercial interest, such as; ethanol, methanol, acetone, etc.

The technology sought should preferably be fully developed and already tested in industrial applications, and ready to be transferred through a licence agreement or a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

The company could also be interested in any new and less developed technology, which should be close to the industrial application anyway, at least TRL 4 (technology validated in the lab) or higher. A technology cooperation agreement would be signed to further develop this technology up to TRL 7 (system prototype demonstration in operational environment) if that is the case.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The capacity for waste treatment of the technology developed by the Spanish company ranges from 0,5 Tm/h to 5,0 Tm/h. The technology sought will be dealing with emissions having the following features:

Exhaust gas composition (Temperature: 273,15 K Pressure 101,3kPa):

Percentage in volume of the main components:
• H2O 9% - 14%
• CO2 12% - 16%
• N2 66% - 71%
Chemical components:
• HCL 4 – 7 mg/Nm3
• CO 25 – 45 mg/Nm3
• NOx 15 – 200 mg/Nm3
• SO2 10 – 22 mg/Nm3
• COT 2 – 4 mg/Nm3

Total Suspended Particles 2 – 5 mg/Nm3

Dioxins and furans 0,01 – 0,03 ng/Nm3
- Specific area of activity of the partner: - Type of partner sought and specific area of activity of the partner:
The partner sought is a company that has proven experience and knowledge to design and manufacture industrial equipment for the operational processing of CO2. In other words, a company able to implement CO2 capture/storage technologies (CCS) and/or 2) carbon utilisation technologies (CCU). In such case, the cooperation will be formalised through a license agreement or a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

The company is also open to collaborate with research centres if the technology proposed has a TRL 4 (technology validated in the lab) or higher. A technology cooperation agreement will be offered if such is the case.

- Task to be performed:
Implementation of the technology, transfer of know-how, technical consultancy and training, joint further development, adaptation of the technology to specific needs of the Spanish company.


Development Stage:

Prototype available for demonstration - The technology sought should preferably be fully developed and already tested in industrial applications. The company could also be interested in any new technology, close to the industrial application, at least TRL 4 (technology validated in the lab).
