Bio-based Energy Technologies P.C. (BIO2CHP P.C.) [www.bio2chp.com], is a spin-off company of LAT, established in 2017, to spin-out the activities in the field of bio-based renewable energy production.
The company’s primary purpose is to build on the results of the SMARt-CHP project [http://ec.europa.eu/environment/life/project/Projects/index.cfm?fuseaction=search.dspPage&n_proj_id=3472], finalize the product development and introduce it to the market.
BIO2CHP P.C. has developed an innovative highly efficient and fuel flexible small-scale waste-to-energy technology, consisting of a compact bubbling fluidized bed gasifier coupled with an innovative high efficiency hot gas filtration system, and a durable gas engine-based combined heat and power generator. The previous are brought together through an automated and smart control system, allowing the technology’s continuous and automated operation using residual biomass feedstock, enabling decentralized small-scale applications in the place of feedstock origin and production, minimizing transportation and logistics costs.
The company intends to further develop its competitive advantage (coupling fluidized bed gasification with hot gas conditioning) to explore alternative problem-solution fits with other advanced bio-based concepts, such as coupling with fuel cells, gasification and pyrolysis based bio-refineries, production of 2nd and 3rd generation bio-fuels and hydrogen, production of bio-based materials, etc.
