Isotech designs and manufactures equipment that can generate electricity and thermal energy from simple biomass or waste.

For example the process of transformation of the wood chips in Syngas starts with the movement of the charcoal to the entrance of the combustion chamber of the reactor. In the combustion chamber is the gasification process which consists in the thermal decomposition of biomass, and the heat necessary to sustain the reaction is supplied by a partial combustion in conditions of oxygen deficiency.

The gaseous mixture produced is defined syngas; all subsequent stages of the process are needed to ensure that the gas leaving the plant has the optimal characteristics in order to be used. The gas leaving the reactor, at a temperature of about 650°C, is sent to a heat exchanger tube bundle type of self-cleaning gas/water that guarantees a temperature at the outlet of the gas of about 100°C, this cooling phase is also the first stage of dedusting gas: the heat exchanger is, in fact, equipped with a system for automatic discharge of the ash. Subsequently, the cooled syngas is sent to a bag filter that separates the powders in suspension in such a way that the Syngas is suitable for subsequent use.

The syngas product can have various uses. Plant in Firenzuola owned by FEP ( Firenzuola Energia Pulita ) Isotech has exploited the Syngas produced from wood chips to feed three engines from 333 kW/each in such a way as to have an energy efficiency of slightly less than 1 MW.

Isotech, as well as in the field of biomass, also specializes in the field of waste for which designs and manufactures equipment capable of producing, thanks to pyrolysis, energy from simple refusal thus decreasing the amount of waste volume to very low emissions.

Today, among the new disposal systems to complex technology, pyrolysis is going to be the alternative to incineration. Industry experts have in fact facing a lot of criticism contesting traditional incinerators, in addition to the difficulties of conducting and operating the possibility that highly polluting products can be dispersed into the atmosphere despite the presence of monumental and costly abatement systems and flue gas cleaning.
