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 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

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 7590-950kW thermal
