News about wood gasification | Spanner Re²
Find out everything about wood gasification in our blog.
In this blog you will also get the latest information about our company Spanner Re² GmbH.
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.
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.
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.

Our small biomass power plant "HKA 10" has proven itself in practice with good running times. As a result of the new low-voltage directive, however, further development work on the system is necessary, which we unfortunately cannot implement at present due to capacity limitations.
