Honduras is now benefiting from Spanner Re²’s proven wood-fired technology. Eductrade has been operating a Re² EnergyBlock since the end of 2017 and is generating electricity and heat from wood in a climate-friendly way. The wood gasifier and the CHP are housed in a 40-foot container.
The wood-based combined heat and power plant is operated as part of a project of the University of Forestry. The area is rich in wood, so the fuel for the EnergyBlock comes exclusively from the local region.
The wood chips are dried on site in a double-head dryer from Spanner Re². Due to the existing rainy season, the container was designed to be rainproof.
The electricity generated is consumed by the university and the heat is available for drying the wood chips.
