Wood gasifier from Re² in combination with a large CHP

For 35 years, the company Biogas Hochreiter GmbH from Schnaitsee in Upper Bavaria has been operating globally functioning and, above all, highly reliable plant systems in the field of wood gas technology. In particular, combined heat and power plants with 300kW electrical output in combination with the proven wood gasification systems from Spanner Re² GmbH promises a highly efficient solution in the area of ​​large-scale systems with CO2-neutral wood gas technology.

 

energy from waste wood for a fruit farm

Here we introduce you to a customer from Spanner Re² who generates electricity & heat from pallets and other wood waste. He uses a simple shredder to chop his waste wood, which is then freed from impurities such as nails. Spanner Re² also offers a simple way to avoid foreign matter such as metal and stones in order to increase the running time of the plant.




A fuel is created

Our customer uses a double-bin dryer to remove moisture from his wood chips. The wood chips are then sieved again before they enter the wood gasifier. The fines are pressed into briquettes which can be sold afterwards.

300kw electrical power from 4 HKA70

As part of a repowering project by Spanner Re², the 50-year-old 6-cylinder marine diesel with a displacement of 231 liters was able to continue to supply the Lechner excavator and woodchipping company in Ellenberg with electricity and heat from woodchippings.

CHP from 2G

More than 6,500 technologically advanced block-type thermal power stations from 2G are reliably in use around the world. As the technology leader in the industry, we are never satisfied with what we have achieved - so the development team at the Group's own R&D company 2G Drives is continuously working on further developing, in particular, the heart of a CHP unit - the gas engine. In association with Re² wood power plants since 2021.

 

Biomass power plants of Re² in Azumino

Spanner Re²'s largest biomass power plant with approximately 2 MW of electricity is located in AzuminoCity, Japan. Located in the purpose-built Azumino Biomass Energy Center, the Japanese corporation Air Water Inc. generates electricity and heat from regional wood with Spanner Re²'s biomass power plants. They also use CO2 for a special recycling process to promote photosynthesis in tomato cultivation - a so-called "trigeneration" concept that is unique in Japan in this form.

According to the Renewables 2020 report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the share of renewable energy in Japan in 2020 was 21.7 percent of total electricity generation. This means that the country is well on the way to further expanding its energy requirements this year in line with the current trend towards renewable energy.
