ENERGY FROM RECYCLED WOOD
Class A : pallets, boxes and crates untreated
Class A wood can be used with the same facilities as forest wood. No treatment is needed to meet exhaust gas emissions requirements.
Class B : furniture, demolition wood …
(poorly adjuvanted wood)
Class B wood requires a specific treatment of exhaust gases and the installation does not follow the same administrative classification than a boiler using clean wood.
Class C : railway sleepers, telephone poles,…
Class C wood must be incinerated in specific installations.
Wood waste have a high energy value. However, the potential presence of pollutants require the implementation of appropriate technologies to control emissions.
In this context, the main advantages of COGEBIO® process compared to direct combustion are:
- Combustion efficiency increase
- Reduction of dioxin emissions, VOC and unburnt hydrocarbons
- Lower fine particle emissions
- Concentration of metal pollutants in the ash
- Proven efficiency technology, even with limited size installations
The preparation of recycled wood for energy production includes the following steps:
- Metals removal
Thus prepared, recycled wood can participate fully in a circular economy and allows to operate COGEBIO® facilities with the same ROI as forest wood, saving this resource.
