WHAT IS CMD ECO 20?


CMD ECO 20 is a micro CHP (Combined Heat & Power) system transforming biomass into syngas (synthesis gas). It can produce efficiently electrical energy and heat to be used in production processes, for building heating, self-consumption, thermal equipments or district heating.
Energy produced by ECO20 can be released into national power grid, taking advantage of existing local tarif schemes. CMD ECO 20 produces till 20kW energy and 40kW heat by using 20/26 Kg of different quality of biomass.
CMD ECO 20 is a device for electrical and thermal energy "combined" production, through a thermochemical breakdown either process or molecular dissociation of organic materials (biomass), obtained from high temperature conditions and with low oxygen quantities - pyrogasification.
Pyrogasification of biomass and organic materials is achieved by an overheating process (from 600 to 1000°C), producing syngas, an extremely clean gas mix.
The syngas inside the equipment undergoes a filtering and cleaning process. At the end of the process the produced fuel is ready to be used for an ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) Otto cycle.
Engine's crankshaft is connected to an alternator of mod. Meccalte ECP 28 20 kW, capable of producing 20 kWh/20 kg of biomass.

ABOUT CMD ECO 20


CMD ECO 20 can dispose all those by-products which can become biomass, such as cultivations waste, debris, forestry waste, livestock. These by-products belong to OFMSW (Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste). Nowadays, waste problem can be solved through pyro-gasification process, generating benefits for the environment.
Only constraint for using the bets biomass is the degree of humidity, which has to be max 20%.
Biomass to be used in CMD ECO 20 can be selected among a wide range of products and by-products: forestry waste, grapevine shoots, pruning, nut shells, coconut shells, hazelnut shells, chestnut shells, almond shells, olive pits, apricot pits, peach pits, tobacco stalks, corn stalks, cane residues. More than 13 kind of biomass have been tested according different combinations.

WHY THE PYRO-GASIFICATION?


Pyro-gasification (or biomass gasification) is a thermo-chemical process which, through different steps, transforms biomass into fuel gas. Pyro-gasification process takes place in a specific reactor. The use of biomass as a fuel requires an equipment which allows the use of produced gas and a precise definition of each step of the process, from biomass till production of energy.
CMD ECO 20 CHP system’s purpose is to use organic waste as a main fuel.
CHP system efficiency reaches high performances around 80/90% (+30/40% than the not combined production of electricity and heating). From 1000 units of renewable fuel you can get till 250 units of electricity and 500 of heating, with a loss of 250 units (25%). Energy biomass is used at highest efficiency.
