The outstanding advantages compared to all methods currently offered on the market can be summarized as follows.
From an economical point of view
The key benefits
Efficiency of the Pyro-Kat process: Available heat energy after the catalyst relative to the energy content of the supplied waste approx.
85% to 95%.
Efficiency of electricity generation: Heat Exchanger + Steam Turbine + Generator ca. 42%.
The overall efficiency of the whole system (i.e. generated electrical energy relative to the energy content of the waste introduced) is
approximately 36% to 40%.
Operational running time of the system units is on average 25 years (some of them are more than 30 years in continuous operation).
Very low operational, maintenance, and repair costs are guaranteed by extremely strong reliability (high product quality with decades of
Return on Investment in most cases is calculated between 3 to 5 years.
Replacement of catalysts is in most cases (normal unit size) only necessary between 10 to 15 years with a guarantee of 5
Total operating costs are significantly lower compared to other methods, technologies, systems and applications, due to the
innovative technology and flexible infrastructure with decentralised installations, mobile units on trucks, reduced logistic costs, etc.
All our installations, which are producing clean exhaust gases and solid residues, are fulfilling the requirements of the EU directives
and undercutting them by up to 200 times. Therefore they are meeting the most restrictive limits in Germany and California.
