CO2 analytical laboratory
The carbon dioxide obtained from the flare gas far exceeds the national legislation and complies with the most stringent requirements of the producers of carbonated drinks of primary importance.
The CO2 analysis is done in real time and any quality deviation involves the shutdown of the plant.
In the analysis laboratory there are various instruments including: a gas chromatograph, infrared analyzers for the analysis of the degree of purity of CO2.
The entire analysis system is also monitored remotely and is designed to carry out continuous analysis on the production plant and on the storage system.
Solid biofuels and thermal gasification laboratory
Vegetable waste is an excellent source of energy, if properly treated, depending on the nature of the source. In our laboratory, in addition to wood chips, we also test fuels obtained by compressing straw, sawdust and similar materials.
In many areas of the world, the fuel used for cooking is wood. The smaller fractions and straws are not used due to their bad combustion and the fumes that are released during the oxidation processes.
The widespread use of appropriate technologies would lead to the annual safeguarding of a forest area equal to at least 30%.
In our laboratories we experiment with new pyrolytic gasification technologies. We mainly use granular biomass: straws, sawdust, non-marketable seeds, peels, and so on.
The gas produced is of excellent quality, which can also be used in biogas engines to produce both electrical and thermal energy. The calorific value is usually around 20 MJ / kg.
The elimination of the TAR takes place through thermocatalytic cracking, with temperatures over 1000 ° C.
Experimental laboratory for the growth and production of microalgae
he world of algae is found here above all for a fundamental reason: on our site we produce CO2 which is used to feed the algal growth.
Together with CO2, we supply the algal inoculum with nutrients and light, necessary and indispensable elements for their growth.
To optimize technology and increase production, solar greenhouse systems are used and artificial light is used, with the use of special lamps equipped with filters.
For the winter months in which the growth of algae is slowed down by climatic conditions, the system provides for the heating of the process fluids.
From the biomass obtained we extract the omega 3, essential for human well-being and from the waste we obtain elements rich in fibers and organic substances, additives of the animal feed industry.
