In 2007, a team of process engineers succeeded in the development of the floating fixed bed gasifier, a revolutionary process for the generation of heat and power from solid biomass. To date, this technology is unique in the entire bioenergy industry.
With an electrical efficiency of 30% and a fuel utilization rate of up to 92%, SYNCRAFT wood power plants are among the most profitable in the entire bioenergy sector. A SYNCRAFT plant will pay for itself after five to ten years depending on the value of the heat produced.
A revolutionary product is the charcoal, which is of such high quality that it is used as a base to produce Terra Preta (black earth), as a feed additive (stabilisation of digestion) or as the highest quality wood BBQ charcoal. Thus, biomass power plants from SYNCRAFT correspond to the concept of bioenergy with carbon storage (bioenergy with carbon capture and storage) and thus contribute to the negative CO2 emission.
The subsidiary "SYNCRAFT® Automation" specializes in the control of the own power plant technology and offers automation technology solutions for the field of wood industry, high frequency technology and wastewater management.
"SYNCRAFT® Engineering" plans and installs turnkey wood power plants in the range between 200 and 500 kW electrical power. But also the adaptation or reconstraction of existing systems for efficient heat and basic load supply is one of the core competences of the privately owned and Austrian company based in Tyrol.
The company sees itself as a strategic and operational partner to make cities "Smart Cities" and regions independent of central energy supply concepts.
