Tecnología de digestión termomecánica de residuos biogénicos


Oferta Tecnológica
Una pyme alemana especializada en máquinas-herramientas y tecnologías medioambientales ha desarrollado una tecnología de digestión termomecánica de residuos biogénicos. Se trata de un sistema eficaz y exitoso que confiere al producto final propiedades especiales gracias a las cuales pueden fabricarse una amplia variedad de productos de distintas características. El producto final es compost fresco homogenizado e higiénico para horticultura, superficies agrícolas y agricultura orgánica, o compost preparado con fibra de madera como alternativa a la turba. La empresa busca socios industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos de fabricación, cooperación o comercialización con asistencia técnica.


Technology for thermo-mechanical digestion of biogenous refuse
A German SME, active in the machine tools area, has developed a technology for thermo-mechanical digestion of biogenous refuse. It is a well-tried and successful system and gives the end-product special properties thanks to which a wide range of qualitatively different products can be made. The company seeks partners from industry for a commercial agreement with technical assistance; technical cooperation agreement or a manufacturing agreement.
A German company from the machine tools sector has long-time experience in producing of environmentally friendly technologies. With help of more than 100 employees, many technical solutions can be realised.

Thermo-mechanical digestion of biogenous refuse:
The properties of peat make it most interesting to horticulture and landscaping, and re-cultivation of tips and mining areas. The peat substitute developed by this German SME is based on usage of renewable resources and offers an ecologically sensible alternative having most favourable properties for its professional use (horticulture, landscaping, and recultivation of mining areas). The space required for the plant is approx. 120m² plus storage room. The thermo-mechanical digestion of biogenous refuse takes place with the help of a machine system for defibration and compaction, after processing and sorting is finished. Operational data depending on the capacity are 4-16m³/h. The analytical data (in accordance with DIN 1154 for the assessment of peat) are speaking well for themselves. Simultaneously the material is mixed intensively. The added inert materials and the discharge material homogenise. The fibrous material consists of individual fibres, which are mainly 1 to 10 mm long, and fibre bundles the properties whereof are easily adjustable. It makes manifold utilisation possible.
Thermo-mechanical digestion of wood into wood fibres is a well-tried and successful system and gives the wood special properties thanks to which a wide range of qualitatively different products can be made. The input material is mechanically disintegrated in the process unit under high pressure, and the material thermal plasticity at temperatures between 130°-180° C. Under the influence of water, a "wet steam explosion effect" leads to defibration between pressure and relaxation zones.

The company seeks partners from the industry, especially manufacturer of earth, horticulture companies for further development of new products within a technical cooperation agreement.
Partners with interest in transfer the technology for testing of new applications for a commercial agreement with technical assistance are highly welcome.
In frame of a manufacturing agreement, a transfer involves know-how and expertise to make the client fit for its production.
Advantages and Innovations:
Basic materials can be refuse of bio-waste container, lop from garden, park, also straw, old forest or sewage sludge.
The end product is a complete homogenised and hygienic fresh compost for horticulture and agricultural areas or organic farming, and/or prepared compost with a rot grad 4 - wood fibre as an alternate to peat.

Advances in comparison with established methods:
- 50% time saving
- 50% area saving - 50% cost saving
- 50% saving of labour
- off-odours neutralisation in short term
- axenic and virus-free
- 50% saving of capacity
- 30% saving of weight
- no residual water

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company seeks industrial partners, e.g. manufacturer of earth, horticulture company, or partners looking for new
applications in the building construction sector, for instance as isolating material.
Technical co-operation for further development of new products would be highly welcome, and also testing of new applications. The German company will assist in adaptation of the technology to specific needs. A manufacturing agreement involves a transfer of know-how and expertise. It consists of knowledge in the properties of the raw material, the manifold possibilities of utilisation and the new way of production. Commercial agreement involves engineering, technical consulting, quality control and maintenance.
