Biomass generation plants
can benefit from the technology
provided by Bowman to increase
Biomass generation plants for space heating applications can benefit from the turbine technology provided by Bowman. By incorporating a second heat exchanger in the flue system, electrical power is generated from the biomass process and can be used locally or sold to the utility for additional revenue.
Biomass generation uses a feedstock such as wood, food or crop waste, or gas generated from waste materials. The heat from the biomass generator passes into the flue of the plant where, traditionally, a heat exchanger harvests the energy into an air or fluid circuit for space heating applications. However, a second heat exchanger can be incorporated to create an air cycle, utilising air blown by a fan or turbocharger. It utilises heat that would otherwise be lost by expanding across the Bowman turbine and generating electricity.
Bowman systems have already been utilised very successfully by a number of biomass generation plants across Europe. The return on investment is very good, with rapid payback. For further information, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
