Agri-Therm is developing the first mobile pyrolysis system for rapid in-situ conversion of low value biomass into higher-value biooil and biochar. With a capacity of up to 5 tonnes per day (tpd), the MPS100’s unique reactor design requires minimal energy input to generate 3 tonnes per day of bio-oil and 1.5 tonnes per day bio-char.
Mobile modular design: the MPS100 operates on a heavy duty, standard size pull trailer for easy transportation and set-up. The unit is also collapsible, making it safe and energy efficient to transport over existing roads and off-road right-of-ways.
Power generation: the MPS100 generates its own power through the recycled use of process bio-gas making the process self sustaining.
Novel reactor design: the heart of the MPS100 is its novel fluidized bed reactor with patented heat recovery system, enabling the pyrolysis process to operate at higher temperatures with lower input energy requirements. The MPS100 is the only mobile pyrolysis system employing fluidized bed technology. This translates to fewer shutdowns due to bio-char build-up as is common with auger type pyrolysis systems.
Novel feeding system: Agri-Therm’s proprietary pulse feeding technology increases the biomass feeding rate over traditional feeding technologies. Additionally, the MPS100 can support variable feedstock sizes, up to 2.5 cm in diameter and 5 cm in length.
Agri-Therm is continuing to develop this unit towards commercialization
