Integrated processes including intermediate pyrolysis
Today, the most promising chars for biochar application in combination with the production of heat and power are delivered by intermediate pyrolysis. Many companies are currently in the development stage of exploring methods of producing fuels via pyrolysis or synthetic diesel via gasification by using the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. New approaches are looking to enhance the yield of biogas from anaerobic digestion by using fractions from pyrolysis (water phase from pyrolysis, organic phase or pyrolysis char) to be added to the anaerobic digestion process. The BIOBATTERY stands for a pool of several environmentally friendly technologies such as biogas plants, thermal storage systems, gasifiers, pyrolysis systems and motors for energy conversion and/or power generation. Through the Birmingham 2026 initiative, Birmingham plans to be the UK's first sustainable global city with a low-carbon energy infrastructure and is well prepared for the impact of climate change.
