Biomass

Turboden Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) plants produce power and heat with high efficiency and user friendly operation by using any kind of biomass, from virgin wood to organic residues from various production processes. The generated power ranges up to 20 MW electric per single shaft.

*As alternatives to more traditional combustion systems, gasification and pyrolysis solutions could be applied.

HEAT TRANSFER FLUID: heat from biomass combustion is transferred to the ORC working fluid by means of an intermediate circuit. This media is typically thermal oil, but can also be saturated steam, pressurized water or directly the ORC working fluid. 

CHP SOLUTIONS (low and high temperature cogeneration)

Turboden units generate Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solution - providing either hot water or higher temperature heat medium (e.g. saturated steam or thermal oil).  Alternatively Turboden can provide also electric power only solutions.

  • Electrical efficiency for CHP / CCHP models up to 22%
  • Electrical efficiency for power only models up to 30%

OUR CONSOLIDATED EXPERTISE IN BIOMASS APPLICATION

In the 2000s, the industrial growth of Turboden was fueled by its penetration into the untapped market segment of medium-small wood-based CHP power plants employed in the wood processing industry and in small district heating networks. In these segments Turboden’s ORC technology offered the advantages of a completely automatic system, with very low O&M and competences to run it: such CHP systems can be employable also by small sawmills and district heating networks that cannot afford to hire new people to run the CHP plants. Today the characteristic Turboden ORC advantages remain so, with the added values of improved electrical efficiency (up to 30 %), well-established after sales capability looking after 300+ operating plants fleet, and effective network of technological and financial partners to cover all project needs.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Pellet
  • Sawmill
  • District heating
  • Panel board industry (MDF, OSB, plywood)
  • Greenhouses
  • Palm oil mills
  • Rice treatments
  • Trigeneration (with absorption chiller)

TYPICAL FUELS

Sawmill residues or by-products, bark, wood dust and chips, pellet, furniture waste, particle board screen dust, recycled wood waste, olive pomace and pits, pruning & trimmings, barley dust, malt dust, rice husks, almond shells, sunflower husks, coffee husks and spent ground, corn cobs, coconut shells and husks, empty fruit bunches, palm kernel shells, cotton gin waste, stalks, paper.

WHY TURBODEN ORC INSTEAD OF STEAM?

  • No operator needed on site
  • Automatic and unmanned operations
  • Operations even in remote locations
  • No need of water
