Conversion of different types of biomass into bioenergy is usually performed using thermo-chemical conversions such as combustion, gasification, or pyrolysis.
The most well-established commonly used method is direct combustion to generate heat which can be used for generating electricity or for direct heating.
Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition of a material in the absence of oxygen. This is a widely used process to convert lignocellulosic biomass into bio-oil which is further processed into biofuels.
Gasification is used to produce syngas that can be further processed into liquid transportation fuels or other products.
The gas in combination with high temperatures creates harsh conditions for the materials used for the construction of boilers and production equipment.
We offer a wide range of corrosion-resistant and high-temperature alloys and are a leader in the industry for composite tube materials.
