Mission & Vision
Fossil CO₂ emissions from energy production are quickly becoming mankind’s biggest issue threatening life as we know it. It is our joint challenge and responsibility to cut the use of fossil energy sources, to increase the use of renewable energy and to make sure it is being used with a minimum of losses.
Biopower and biogas are types of energy originating from organic and renewable residue. Biopower is in contrast to wind and solar power not depending on weather conditions. It can thereby function both as base load and for fast response power production.
We provide technology for conversion of solid biomass to renewable biogas or to combined heat and power (CHP). Our plant technology offers a small-scale decentralized and circular energy system which enables gas or CHP production with very high efficiencies and a minimum of distribution and parasitic losses. A key reason for this is the industrial scale plant dimensions.
Until now, biopower has only been a possibility for large district heating networks, inevitably suffering from low usage of the primary energy in the feedstock due to the distance between fuel, power plant and consumer. With Meva Energy an industry operation that today at its best is selling its biomass residue to the highest bidder or more often simply has to dispose it without any pay at all instead can make use of it itself. By having a Meva Energy gasification plant at the industry site itself it is possible to use the own residue stream to produce gas or CHP to supply the industrial operations with self-made energy (and possible sell any surplus to the grid). No heavy and expensive transports of residue to a distant disposer or buyer. No distribution losses to a distant consumer. Only true circular energy systems.
We think that the key to a profitable and sustainable biopower and biogas applications is to use profitable feedstocks. After all, the biomass costs represent the lion´s share of any operational expenditure. Therefore, Meva Energy’s technology is adapted to use not only conventional wood fuels, such as pellets, but also really low cost 2nd generation biomass such as saw dust, agricultural waste and industrial fiber residue.
The results are new opportunities for energy generation and another step towards the more sustainable energy system we all need.
Our mission is to provide highly efficient gasification technology for production of renewable power.
To be a global provider of gasification technology for power and heat production based on small fraction biomass.
What is Biomass & Biopower?
Real life story
According to the European Sawmill organization about 85 million m3 of sawn softwood is being produced each year. This represents a production of saw dust and bark of about 30 million tons.
This feedstock resource is today representing a low value as it sits in the saw mills site and the low fraction character makes it difficult to transport. Pellets production is of low value and the particle board industry is only in need of a small fraction of the saw dust produced.
A very large part of this resource is just being burned and destroyed. Utilization as fuel to produce power and heat locally at the sawmill without transport with Meva’s technology is an attractive option. The 30 million tons of saw dust and bark is enough to supply some 3,750 Meva Power Plants.
We have this solid wood factory refining raw timber to complete wood furniture. The process produces a substantial rest steam of saw dust, wood shavings, cutting and bark. With the Meva technology this wood factory could be energy and resource self-sustainable within 4 years after installing five Meva plants.
