Ecocycle finalises gasification licence
Ecocycle (Group) Ltd ("Ecocycle") and Torftech Ltd ("Torftech") are pleased to announce that they have executed a sole licence agreement for the application of Torftech's Torbed® reactors to the biomass gasification sector.
Kevin Thomas of Ecocycle said "We are delighted to be able to bring the Torbed®, a proven technology to the UK market, Ecocycle has evaluated many different gasification technologies over the last 10 years, this is the first technology that we have seen that we have felt comfortable to invest in. The Torftech track record of over 150 reactors in operation around the globe speaks for itself, and with proven biomass gasification plants operating in Europe we are confident in its capabilities within the UK market." ...
Ecoycle is currently developing the first two UK sites, with planning permission in place and is looking to develop further sites; the technology provides economies for medium scale RDF operations, allowing clean efficient utilisation of refuse derived fuels, without the need to build large scale incineration plant with the associated emissions and logistics problems.
