Syncraft® wood power plants

The fossil fuel age is coming to an end and bioenergy is increasingly becoming the focus of future-oriented business. It‘s time to get to know US.

In the energy production of tomorrow, wood will play a particularly important role. With our wood power plants, the renewable raw material can be utilised optimally. This proprietary and patented technology generates more electricity and heat. Furthermore, bioenergy is the only renewable energy that can be switched on and off when needed.

We will guide you throughout the entire transition phase to resource efficient and sustainable energy output and will hand over our wood power plant turnkey.

THE SYNCRAFT CONCEPT

OUR PATENTED FLOATING FIXED BED TECHNOLOGY

While in classic fixed-bed reactors gravity as well as the gas flow act downwards and thus cause increasing compaction, in the SynCraft fixed-bed reactor these two forces act in the opposite direction. Thanks to this difference, the char in the gasifier always remains ideally loosened and well permeable - no matter how fine or structured the wood chips were before.

REAL (CLIMATE) POSITIVE!

With our self-developed and patented technology, we produce resource-saving and sustainable bioenergy. And this is how it works: We add forest residues from sustainably managed forests to our climate-positive energy system. Depending on the configuration and use, we generate various energy sources from it, such as electricity, heat, natural gas substitute and soon also hydrogen. And of course always with you: the vegetable carbon. Thus, our systems only release a part of the CO2 originally stored via the forest. A respectable part remains as useful, green carbon and thus makes our system climate-positive.

THE MANY FACETS OF BIOCHAR

Biochar can be used in a variety of ways: as a soil substrate or manure additive, for example, the carbon remains stably stored in the soil for several centuries. It is therefore considered sequestered. The same applies to the use of biochar in building materials - for example, concrete, gypsum or clay made from biochar. In addition, plant carbon can also be bound in asphalt or other recyclable materials. An effective carbon sink is created. The biochar is unexpectedly multifaceted as a carbon sink - and we can use it immediately to achieve the climate goals!

BIOCHAR = STORED CO2

Key role in the fight against climate change: biochar is mainly produced by carbonisation (pyrolysis), for example of wood or another biomass. In the process, around half of the carbon compounds from the biomass are not released back into the atmosphere, but remain bound as valuable carbon. If the plant carbon is not then burnt again, the carbon sink is preserved. Biochar in itself is durable and hardly decomposes biologically or chemically. If we start together globally and quickly, plant carbon can remove a good 250Gt* of CO2 from the atmosphere by the end of the century. That is about one third of the amount we need to achieve the 1.5°C climate targets.

* That´s 250,000,000 tons of CO2

Benefits

Clean energy

Wood is a regional, renewable fuel which is transformed to clean energy in our wood power plants, free of fine dust emissions and residues.

Cost-effective

Our wood power plants work entirely stand-alone and do not require any auxiliary materials. The only raw material required grows right in the neighbourhood.

Zero Emission

Our climate-positive
wood power plants go
even beyond Zero Emission.
With every kilowatt hour generated, we bind emissions.

Efficient

An electrical efficiency
rate of 30 % with a fuel utilisation rate of 92 % demonstrate what modern wood power plants are capable of.

News & updates

03. November 2022

Syncraft hat im Projekt Net0 seinen vollständigen CO2 - Fußabdruck erfasst, Maßnahmen zur Reduktion eingeleitet und nicht vermeidbare Emissionen von Scope 1 und Scope 2 durch Stilllegung der aliquoten Menge an Carbon Credits auf Basis von Pflanzenkohle kompensiert. Die Bedeutung von Pflanzenkohle als Medium zur Speicherung von CO2 und die Einsatzmöglichkeiten der Technologie zur Herstellung wird in einer jüngst veröffentlichten Fachinformation unterstrichen. Dazu hat das Bundesministerium für Klimaschutz, Umwelt, Energie, Mobilität, Innovation und Technologie (BMK) hat im Rahmen der Initiative klimaaktiv https://www.klimaaktiv.at/ eine sehr empfehlenswerte Fachinformation zu Pflanzenkohle publiziert.

03. November 2022

Um die Pariser Klimaziele, insbesondere das 1,5°C Ziel, mit Nachdruck zu verfolgen, ist es notwendig, dass sämtliche Industrie- und Gewerbebetriebe sich über ihre eigenen gesamthaften CO2 - Fußabdrücke im Klaren werden.

Dabei muss das CO2 - Accounting fast gleich akribisch genau und integriert in Geschäftsabläufe in Zukunft erfolgen (können), wie aktuell die Finanzbuchhaltung.

28. September 2022

A successful operators' meeting was held last Friday in Vorarlberg.

Numerous operators of our wood-fired power plants were on site, took part with interest in the various workshops and presentations and held exciting discussions.
