PyroVore Pyrolysis Platform – Waste to Energy System

The PyroVore pyrolysis platform is a flexible, clean, and high performance waste-to-energy system capable of converting a multitude of solid and liquid wastes into useable heat and electricity.

The system can handle both solid combustibles, and liquid waste streams, providing the opportunity to eliminate a wide variety of waste through a single process. The use of pyrolysis reduces the volume of waste sent to landfills by 85-90%, while solely producing ashes as a residual material, which amounts to barely 10-15% of the initial mass of the waste.

The design is an evolution of an existing and proven system that has nearly 100,000 hours service record in the British Navy, US Army, UK clinical waste and municipal waste markets.

The PyroVore platform has a minimum lifespan of 20 years, built to operate 24 hours a day, and contains all the required equipment to treat the combustion gases (dust, NOx, etc.) , and respect all environmental regulations.

 

 

Pre-treatment

  • Recycling Ferrous Metals
  • Removing aggregate, glass, dangerous substances, oversize items
  • Shredding waste to 2 inch minus granular size

Compaction & Pyrolysis

  • Waste heated to 800-900°C
  • Formation of a gas and vapor mixture: Water, carbon monoxide and dioxide, hydrogen, methane, ethane
  • Ashes are the sole output
  • Products can be recovered from the ash (post pyrolysis) for reuse, recycling or
    resale. For example metals which have been encased in plastic, or compounds
    that can be reclassified as a product.

Heat Recovery

  • Output can be used for heat, steam generation, etc.
  • In the form of hot water, steam or thermal oil heating
  • For combined heat and power, multiple options are available: Heat & ORC Engines, Packaged Steam Turbines
  • Typically 750-950kW thermal
