Commissioning of first industrial-scale TCR® research & development plant
- The first industrial-scale TCR® research & development plant achieved an important milestone with a successful 50 hour test run in May 2018.
The plant processes up to 300 kg/h of dried sewage sludge and was built as part of a project for the demonstration of the energy-efficient conversion of sewage sludge funded by the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs as part of their energy research program. The project also aims to demonstrate the use of TCR® bio-oil and syngas on an industrial dual fuel CHP plant and the gasification of char from sewage sludge.
The project is conducted by the German waste management company Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf, the Institute for Energy Technology at the Amberg-Weiden University of Applied Sciences and Susteen Technologies GmbH. Susteen Technologies is responsible for the commercialization of TCR® technology.
This project also provides valuable information for the TO-SYN-FUEL project in particular regarding the design and optimization of the TCR® reactor system.
