Combined heat and power

CHP application: renewable local power and heat production

High efficiency due to lean burn combustion

To the knowledge of Meva Energy, Meva’s technology is the only gasification system in the world being able to use lean burn CHP engines. The reason is simple; the incomparably continuos and stable character of the process ensures that the gas supply exhibits extremely small level of variation.

CHP application in a wide range of installations

The technology is suitable for several different applications characterized by fuel type and heat application. Possible applications for the current set-up of 1.2 MWe and 2.4 MWth include:

  • Industry: chemical plants, saw mills, refineries, laundries, food industry, plastic molding industry, farming and green houses
  • Commercial: office buildings, airports, shopping malls
  • Residential: DHC systems, multi-family housing, planned communities, hotels
  • Institutions: schools, nursing homes, prisons, hospitals

Beside having maximum utilization of the produced heat, the key to reach maximum profitability conditions is to use a low cost fuel. As the system can use saw dust as fuel, one particularly interesting segment is saw mills and wood-producing industry where saw dust is a by-product.
