Pyro-Blok systems create fuel pellet from urban waste fibre
The Pyro-Blok solid fuel plant is a small scale, low CAPEX production platform for producing energy from waste. These plants produce Pyro-Blok (patent pending) solid fuel, a dense fuel pellet made of 100 percent recycled urban waste fibre which uses no binders, glue or plastics.
According to Therméal, Pyro-Blok’s Quebec-based manufacturer, when compared to premium wood pellets, this product offers 15 percent more energy by weight, better resists long term storage, and provides a production cost of less than 4.5$/GJ.
These small scale solid fuel production systems are scalable (additional modules can be added) will reduce landfilling and GHG emissions and provide reduced fuel oil consumption for thermal heat applications.
According to Therméal, 6.5 m3 of waste waxed cardboard fibre can be converted to one cubic metre of dense, solid fuel with an energy value equivalent to 450 litres of class-2 fuel oil.
