Solid Waste Advanced Plants
maatGreen is working in the development of new technologies oriented to the solid waste management. In order to eliminate this serious environmental problem,
maatGreen has established a private initiative of construction and management of Solid Waste Processing plants, through a private consortium in order to offer technological advanced solutions in this area. With this new technologies, our solid waste management plants are capable of producing electric energy (up to 3Mw/h), thermal energy (up to 3Mw/h), reduction of polluting gases (CO2) and reduces the polluting sub-soil water effects.
Other sub-products are a side effect of the process as various metals, glass, paper, organic fertilizers.
For this project maatGreen is leading an international consortium which integrates the best technologies and professional practices.
This technology is the synergy of biological, physical, chemical and mechanical systems. Our goal is always mixing organic matter (or biomass, MSW organic microalgae, ...) with inorganic matter, that are now waste that pollute our environment, and using the latest cutting-edge technologies for the treatment, decomposition and recycling of MSW, and producing what our customers need and adjust it to their needs within the energy field, and in addition solve the problem of MSW as primary target.
As the core of the technology we have:
Section of selection of Residues.
Production section, reception of organic matter and of the CO2 from the environment and the plant process itself.
Section of biomass or decomposition of organic and inorganic matter, creation of biogas, bio-fuel.
Section of producing electricity through cogeneration.
With our technology we are able to obtain different products, such as:
Sub-products (metals, paper, …)
Solid Waste Gasification Infrastructures
The process of solid waste gasification is an efficient and environmentally responsible process for converting low-value raw material including municipal solid waste, tires, sludge, biomass and carbon into highly valued materials like electricity, transportation liquid fuels or chemicals. In such a process, extremely high temperatures or oxygen are used to break down the molecular structure of complex materials containing carbon and these materials are then converted in SYNGAS, containing hydrogen and carbon monoxide.
The SYNGAS can be used for:
Generation of electricity with a Simple Vapour System
Generation of electricity in a Combined Cycle with Gas Turbine and Vapour Turbine
Generation of Transportation Fuels, including Diesel, Kerosene and Ethanol
Generation of Hydrogen
The elevated temperatures in the gasification zone created by the plasma-heated air permit a design both simple and highly flexible with few moving parts.
When this is compared to incineration or traditional gasification, the technology provided by maat Green applied to such processes offers the following benefits:
Range of flexibility of combustibles.
Combustibles like tires and municipal solid waste can be easily treated.
The gasification reactor allows for a simple feed system and continual oversight of the process.
Highly responsible in terms of the environment due to the low emissions of the effluents.
In addition, the inorganic components that are converted into vitreous pieces can be used as conglomerates in construction.
Capacity for use of the air as an oxidizing agent; eliminating the need for additional capital and operation costs required for plants dedicated to air separation.
Agricultural and Farming Waste Infrastructures
Biomass is a source of renewable energy. In fact, it is the renewable energy source that contributes most to modern-day needs. The energy obtained from biomass comes from the Sun by means of the process of photosynthesis. This is the process by which plant cells are able to form organic substances in response to both CO2 present in the air and other pure substances, taking advantage of this situation to carry out the energy process.
Of all of our energy sources, this is the longest-standing. It is also the source that has contributed in largest part to the technological development of humanity and, at present time, is the renewable energy that presents one of the best "business options" when it comes to solving modern-day energy problems.
Of the formed substances, which are referred to as carbohydrates, energy can be properly extracted by burning these substances directly, by converting them into a highly flammable liquid such as alcohol or oil, or even by transforming them into a gas.
maatGreen is undertaking significant investments in the research of an energy production technology in the production of electric energy by means of the gasification of biomass generated in processes related to the harvesting activities
