EQTEC PLC: Transforming Waste Into Green Energy

Top 10 Biomass Solution Companies in Europe - 2020

Demand for biomass has been actively increasing over the years within the energy sectors as it brings significant economic gains. It has become the most reliable, sustainable, and permanent energy alternative to other traditional energy sources like propane gas or natural gas for various industries.

Many companies are driving efficiency by embracing the world of IoT. By implementing smart appliances and connected gadgets, companies are using high-tech sensors to amass massive amounts of real-time energy data and transmit it to the power grid – for advanced storage and analysis. Also, the development of new IoT-based concepts and tools for the intelligent management of the energy systems, with particular emphasis on thermal systems, has become one of the most pressing current renewable energy demands. Embedding advanced intelligence through Industry 4.0 and technologies like pelletization, torrefaction (solid products), and pyrolysis (bio-oils) are playing a significant role in transforming the biomass logistics and trade demands. Biomass gasification technologies integrated with biogas or solar-wind power can offer advanced alternatives for renewable energy production. Gasification, combined with various forms of gas cleaning, can also be applied by organizations to generate clean gaseous fuels from low-grade fuels such as different wastes and straw. And, the increase in consumption of this type of energy source will require the creation of information networks and data analysis, using technologies like AI, machine learning, and Big data that will support decision-making. In the coming years, deployment of both thermo-chemical and bio-chemical routes will witness more tractions to directly produce biofuels such as ethanol, methanol, and FT-diesel.

At this juncture, there is a wide variety of solutions providers entering the industry with advanced and integrated smart biomass technologies. To help companies navigate through the best-of-breed solution providers, Energy CIO Insights has compiled a list of ‘Top 10 Biomass Solution Providers in Europe 2020.’ The enlisted organizations are transforming the world’s energy infrastructure and operations at the convergence of several disruptive technologies.

We present to you Energy CIO Insights’, “Top 10 Biomass Solution Providers in Europe - 2020.”

    Top Biomass Solution Companies in Europe

  • EQTEC PLC is a company that provides proprietary advanced gasification technologies to address two of the world’s greatest challenges: managing rising levels of waste and meeting the growing demand for clean energy. The patented conversion technology transforms biomass and waste into a clean synthetic gas. This ‘syngas’ is then used as fuel to produce electricity and heat, or as a commodity, to produce transportation fuels or Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG). This advanced gasification process is more efficient, more sustainable, and drastically reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to those produced by incineration

  • ETIA is a French engineering group that provides innovative and sustainable solutions by designing and delivering plants for processing biomass, food products, and industry residues, mainly from the agro-food and energy sectors.They specialize in designing equipment that disallows materials from getting wasted, prevents pollution, and helps produce energy. The company’s solutions are aimed at decarbonizing the industry by converting the residues and waste into value-added products such as biochar or bio coke, which can then be used further in the industry. ETIA is working on solutions that convert residues from biomass, biosolids, and plastic wastes, producing energy, renewable products, methane, hydrogen and syngas molecules, with over 40 different implementations globally
