Pearwalk Engineering are one of the first UK companies to be working on the first commercial Pyroformer, a unique and highly efficient energy-from-waste processing plant using intermediate pyrolysis.
The Pyroformer is a unique and innovative bioenergy solution using multiple waste feedstocks to generate cost effective heat, power, and other marketable products. The Pyroformer offers the potential for carbon negative heat and power generation which would be useful for:
- Agricultural facilities with large amounts of waste.
- Waste processing facilities.
- Bio-fuel generation facilities wishing to increase yields.
- Companies wishing to reduce their carbon footprint.
Pyrolysis is a thermochemical decomposition of organic material at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen (or any halogen). It involves the simultaneous change of chemical composition and physical phase, and is irreversible. Pyrolysis is a type of thermolysis, and is most commonly observed in organic materials exposed to high temperatures. It is one of the processes involved in charring wood, starting at
200-300 °C (390-570 °F).
