Biomass to Energy

Engineered for a cleaner environment

As part of the global strategy on the use of Renewable Energy, Biomass provides an ever increasing role in the generation of power, through the incineration of plant matter (typically waste wood, wood chips, dead trees etc.) to produce electricity and/or heat. These fuels are incinerated to provide the necessary heat to operate steam turbines or gasification plants, which in turn produce electricity to power stand-alone industrial processes, or to be fed back into the national grid.

During the incineration process, ash residue and greenhouse gases are generated within the waste gas, for which emissions to atmosphere must be reduced to below legal air quality standards. . In Australia, air quality standards are set by the National Environment Protection Council (NEPC); however monitoring and enforcement is carried out by State/Territory agencies.

Luehr Filter provides Air Pollution Control Technology to reduce emissions from Biomass plants well below those set by the NEPC. Through our custom designed dry absorption processes, using a range of additives (such as Activated Carbon, Ca(OH)2, CaCO3, Na2CO3, NaHCO3etc.) and specialised gas conditioning equipment, we reduce waste gas temperatures to the ideal levels for chemical reaction with absorption reagents. Patented equipment such as the Luehr Conditioning Rotor, ensure ideal reaction conditions with the additives. Additionally the Luehr KUV additive recirculation system ensures fully efficient use of additive material, vastly reducing plant operating costs. The specialised range of Luehr Flat Bag Filters ensures the collection of ash residue and spent additive, prior to the treated gases being released to atmosphere.

Luehr Filter has accumulated a wealth of experience on many successful plant installations within the Biomass Industry across the UK, Europe and the United States.
