Biomass Technology

Synergy Renewables is focused on the generation of renewable electricity from biomass based feedstock. 

Biomass is classified as organic material, such as trees, grass, and agricultural products that can be harvested and utilized as fuel in power generation facilities. Synergy is focused on sustainable agricultural based crops and grasses that can provide a long term renewable source of feedstock.

Currently, Synergy is deploying an advanced and proven technology for biomass energy. This technology is highly efficient and meets our stringent environmental and financial performance standards.


Major Technology Points

• Biomass is a clean, renewable material that can be used to generate base load power

• Biomass energy greatly reduces greenhouse gas emission by releasing carbon dioxide that is already a
  part of the life cycle of biomass materials versus fossil fuels that release non-biogenic CO2

• Biomass is a sustainable crop that is grown and harvested up to three times per year

• Clean emissions complying with all EPA and EU standards

• Accepts a wide variation of biomass types and conditions with constant output


Biomass Supply

The exact species of crop chosen for a biomass facility is dependent on the location and climate of a specific region. Coupling sustainable farming practices, a non-invasive native crop, and proper harvesting techniques yields a virtually endless supply of clean renewable biomass for conversion into energy.

Process Details

Our biomass energy technologies consist of three primary stages:

Biomass Processing

Harvested biomass is delivered to the processing facility and initially stored for processing. The biomass is then sent through a preconditioning system that consists of a press to remove excess moisture and a quality control station to detect any inerts or materials that need to be removed. The prepared biomass is then conveyed to large bins where the feedstock is stored.

Thermal Conversion & Power Generation

The biomass is discharged from the feed hoppers into the thermal conversion chamber where the feedstock is heated to release its useful heat. Next, the flue gas is sent directly to a heat recovery steam generator to create high pressure steam. The remaining inert solids of around 2-4 percent are discharged from the base of the chamber and conveyed to storage containers for disposal off-site. The steam is used to generate electricity in a steam turbine generator.
