1. Development of technology for preparation of substrates used in methane co-fermentation with disintegrative methods (DEZMETAN)
Project completed by the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology within the TANGO competition framework. The aim of the project is to develop a method of removing high concentrations of SOx and NOx from exhaust gases of large Diesel engines with use of a beam of electrons coupled with a water scrubber.The BIOPOLINEX Sp. z o.o. company declared the will to cooperate with ICHTJ in completion of tasks connected with the construction and testing of prototype installation.
Pursuant to its agreement with the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology the BIOPOLINEX Sp. z o.o. company conducts actions connected with the deployment of the ICHT project entitled ‘A mobile installation for membrane bio-gas enrichment with methane’.The basic element of the Mobile Membrane Installation (MIM) is the membrane separator. It separates the mixture of gasses through a semi-permeable membrane, made of porous capillaries that cover the external surface with a solid layer, made of a composite of several polyamides. The methane enrichment of the gas to 89-92% of volume is required for its introduction in the municipal gas network as natural gas supplement or its preparation as a biofuel for vehicle engines.Project is currently at the deployment stage.
4. Research on cleaning the exhaust gasses of large Diesel engines
This project is the answer to demand for development of modern method for utilization of the ever growing volume of municipal sewage sludge. This sludge that till present date was treated mostly as a potential source of chemical and biological contamination, posing a real threat to natural environment is at the same time a rich source of various substances that can be reused.New paradigms in processing of municipal sewage and sewage sludge state that water is a valuable food product (good) and sewage treatment plants are installations for production of energy and other resources. This transformation of image of the issue to the industrial praxis of communal sewage treatment plants requires the development of innovative and breakthrough technologies with substantial competitive potential.The R&D tasks planned for the project are to lead to creation of such a solution through application, within a single technological system, of patented high-yield method for bio-gas production that utilizes sewage sludge and grass silage, and an innovative method for hygienization of the post-fermentation sediment with use of a beam of fast electrons, which will secure effective fighting of biological hazards that enables the processing of the fermented material in organic fertilizer.Proper choice of efficiency of the bio-gas module will secure the energetic self-sufficiency of the developed technological line and the whole sewage treatment plant. The solutions will drastically reduce the cost of sewage treatment.This will make the project technology, currently in the last stage of prototype testing, after preparation of its deployment, a zero-energy technology for production of organic fertilizer based on sewage sediments with high competitive potential. The applicant plans to introduce the project results in its own business activities within the borders of the Republic of Poland.Project is currently at the stage of search for financing sources.
3. Membran bio-gas enrichment method
The objective of the project is to develop and implement a complete technological line for conditioning substrates from agricultural and food industry, utilizing the hydrodynamic and low-temperature disintegration in an innovative hybrid system. Till present date these processes were separately applied to processing of excess sludge from sewage treatment plants. The proposed technology is dedicated for implementation both in agricultural bio-gas plants, and in sewage treatment plants (municipal bio-gas plants). The increase of bioavailability of methane co-fermentation substrates will contribute to increase bio-gas yields, improvement of rheological properties of the post-fermented material, improvement in sludge dehydration, lowered volume of post-fermented material that requires further processing. The application of the disintegration technology allows for improvement of energy balance and profitability of bio-gas power plant. The disintegration of substrates also influences the quality of the sewage fluid that is formed in dehydration process, which also influences the approach to its further treatment. The question of clearing the drainage of post-fermented material, and the regaining of nitrogen and phosphorus in form of struvite form the supplementation of knowledge that is necessary for users of the proposed technology. The research of disintegration, fermentation and drainage purification will be completed on laboratory scale, and then verified in a full-scaly prototype system. The target mobile disintegration node could be used as a test product for large-scale objects or a product for direct installation in the smaller objects. At this stage the system will be subjected to a thorough analysis and optimization with use of computer model, and the selection of solutions will depend on their fulfilment of technological, energetic and economic criteria. The simulation model, which was supplemented with environmental module, will create an advanced evaluation tool, that will be novel both for agricultural and municipal bio-gas power plants.The project is submitted for NCBIR financing within the framework of the SUBACTION 4.1.2 ‘Regional scientific and research agendas’. The project will be completed by the following consortium: Gdańsk University of Technology, Warsaw University of Technology, Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology [ICHTJ], and the BIOPOLINEX Sp. z o.o. company.
