Summary

Summary: 
A UK based SME is the first to market a highly mobile energy generator that uses a microbial process to turn organic waste into energy, biofertilizer and revenue. The company seeks partners with proven and reliable solutions to convert heat from combined heat and power (CHP) to cold for space cooling and refrigeration. Technologies of interest are, but not limited to, adsorption and absorption chillers. Commercial agreement with technical assistance or technical cooperation is sought.

Description

Description: 

A UK based SME develops and sells micro, compactable and modular anaerobic digestion systems to treat a wide variety of waste streams. To enhance its service for its global customers, the company is actively looking for solutions to convert (i) heat from CHP (ii) biogas; to cold that could be applied for space cooling or food refrigeration.

The CHP ranges between 30 – 100kW with 70/90 C outlet temperature and flow of approximately 3.2 m3/hr. A commercial agreement with technical assistance or a technical cooperation agreement is sought with any private or public tech-provider of such technical solutions.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
The SME is interested in a solution that can convert I. Heat from CHP with temperature 70/90 C, CHP size between 30 -100kW II. Biogas with flow rates between 5 – 25 Nm3/hr (biogas can be upgraded to biomethane) to cold with temperature around freezing 0 C, which could be applied for space cooling and food refrigeration. The company wishes to receive the price of the proposed solution, its operating and maintenance costs, information about reference sites and indication of the technology used.
