Generating electricity using fossil fuel is the most popular method in the world. However, the costs for producing energy with traditional carbon-based fuels are increasing. Therefore it is one of the major challenge of ZG to develop proven technologies to replace fossil fuels with sustainable, renewable fuel sources.
Biomass boiler is readily available, lower priced, and can be sustainably grown. ZG’s innovative fluidized bed combustion technologies systems for generating power from biomass incorporate decades of experience and have been implemented in all areas of the pulp and paper industry as well as for utility or municipal power plants. These systems offer high process efficiency and improved environmental performance.
ZG offers a wide range of fluidized bed technologies, distinguished by capacity, fuel and industrial application, and characterized by unmatched fuel flexibility, lowest emissions and high efficiency and availability.
EcoFluid bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boilers represent an important part of ZG’s bioenergy solutions and are used for steam and power generation from biomass and different alternate fuels as sludges, RDF, and residues.
Power fluid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers are used for steam and power generation from conventional and renewable fuels (e.g. coal and biomass) and alternative fuels (biogenous residues, sludge, rejects, and refuse-derived wastes with high calorific value).
ZG delivers gasifier plants for various applications using sustainable woody biomass as fuel. ZG gasifiers are based on circulating fluidized bed (CFB) and bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technologies. Approximate capacity range is 10-200 MW fuel per unit.
Several decades of experience with fluidized bed technology and individual customer challenges have provided ZG with a strong track record of reference plants.
