Bioenergy / Energy from wasteProject Energy from Waste Through Pyrolysis
This is the third lessons learnt report and provides insights into the importance of drying for pyrolysis processes.
Renergi Pty Ltd has developed a patented, award-winning pyrolysis technology, which is termed as “grinding pyrolysis” technology. The technical feasibility of this patented technology has previously been demonstrated with a 100 kg/hr demonstration plant funded by the ARENA and the WA state government.
During this project, in partnership with the Shire of Collie, WA, Renergi will design, build, commission and operate a pre-commercial demonstration pyrolysis plant in Collie to convert municipal solid wastes, forestry/agricultural residue or other types of biomass feedstocks into three main commercial products – bio-oil, biochar and wood vinegar. The success of this project will contribute to the transition of Collie from a coal-reliant economy to a renewable-reliant economy by developing a negative-emission bio-based circular economy
