ConBI prototype is ready! It aims at developing a smart, cost-efficient, small scale cogeneration (CHP) system characterized by high fuel flexibility, thermal and electrical efficiency. It is composed by an externally fired topping gas turbine, a boiler, a fluidized bed combustion device for biomass and a natural gas combustion system.
The ConBI system is developed, adapting and integrating components already available on the market, mainly coming from the automotive industry to produce an innovative low cost, flexible and reliable micro-CHP system. The fluidized bed combustor option allows the use of solid renewable fuels such as biomass.
The ConBi system will:
- provide a low cost, low-carbon, fuel flexible packaged CHP system;
- contribute at reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint increasing the energy efficiency of the industrial process.
