WHAT IS CMD ECO20X?


ECO20X MICRO CHP SYSTEM is a highly technological equipment producing at the same time electric energy and heating by combustion of wooden scraps (biomass) through pyrogasification (a thermochemical process developed at high temperature and in absence of oxygen).

Wooden scraps are poured inside the large equipment’s hopper. Biomass and other organic materials pyrogasification, obtained by its heating (from 300 till 900 C), produces a fuel gas mixture (syngas) essentially made of CO, H2 and CH4.

Syngas, before being mixed with the air necessary to get air/fuel mixture to be released to the engine, must be submitted to a cooling, filtering and cleaning process. Only after cleaning process, fuel/air mixture is released to the internal combustion engine.
CHP system crankshaft, connected to a synchronous alternator, can produce
20kW el (peak value). Heating system can produce till 40kW th of heat power (peak value), using the heating inside cooling liquid of the engine and that released by exhaust gases.

CHP system is suitable even for a trigenerative purpose (production of electric energy, heating, thermal and refrigerator), coupling with an absorption chiller.

ABOUT CMD ECO20X


CMD ECO20X 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 ECO20X 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 ECO20X 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.
