There is also the capability of converting liquid fuel to electricity so as to effect the recovery of solid waste at 100% through energy recovery.
An important advantage presented in this method is that it is a total ecological method of municipal solid waste treatment as:
Energy utilization percentages
The final product (liquid fuel) has high value of heat combustion (approximately 7.500-8.000 kcal/kg- certified by internationally European institutes). Through power generator (internal combustion engine), the conversion efficiency to electricity is 50%, while the remaining 50% is converted to heat energy which is then collected (efficiency 90%) and used for system energy requirements.
The Mass Balance for the power production is configure according to the below table. The calculations base is one (1) ton of incoming product - liquid fuel into the Power Generator.
The Mass Balance for the power production is configure according to the below table. The calculations base is one (1) ton of incoming product - gaseous fraction into the Power Generator.
Through high frequency technology implementations devices, under certain operation conditions, takes municipal solid waste (MSW) to liquid fuel with environmentally friendly way.
The Mass Balance for the liquid fuel production is configured according to the below table.The calculations base is one (1) ton of incoming product in pellet into the system.
system energy needs
The liquid fuel production unit is based on patented invention and concerns a liquid fuel production method and hybrid system from the treatment of mixed municipal solid waste (MSW), without the use of catalytic compounds.
The implementation of the method produces:
A) Liquid fuel of high quality comparable to diesel (main product). The final-end product has high value of heat of combustion (approx. 7.500- 8.000 kcal/kg - certified by internationally European institutes)
Β) Gaseous fuel The major parts of system energy needs are covered by the recirculation of thermal gases (self-sufficiency closed system). Moreover it can be used as fuel for gas engines, but also as raw material for other fuel production, as liquefied gas fuel.
C) Char which is a high commercial value product (additive for cement plants or as soil improver)
Waste to be treated are the following:
