WT ENERGY SMEA’s biomass treatment facilities can turn leftover organic materials into:
Feedstock is homogenized in the mixing unit and automatically pumped into our highly optimized medium-loading rate, continuous flow anaerobic biodigestors.
The entire biodigestion process is software controlled, and specially designed to maintain the quality of the organic material and ensure ideal gas production.
Our biomass systems are enhanced with:
The gas produced in the biodigestion process is scrubbed and dehydrated to remove the hydrogen sulphide, and then used to fuel the cogeneration engines which produce electric and thermic energy. The remaining digestate is separated into two recyclable by products:
Benefits of our system:
A typical plant processing up to 22.000 tons/year of corn silage biomass requires a capital expenditure of 5 – 5.5 million euro depending on location, local construction costs, fees and permits.
Based on current Italian tariffs and fees, a plant of this size which has the capacity to produce 1 MWh of electrical energy, could generate a ROI of up to 1.6 million euro per year (pretax). This translates into an IRR on investment of more than 30% and a linear payback period of approximately 3.2 years.
|Capital Expenditure||€ 5 – 5.5 M|
|ROI pretax||€ 1.6 M|
|I.R.R. Investors||+70% (based on equity/debt ratio of 20/80)|
