Brief description

BIOZIMMI combines the gasifiers’ cost-effectiveness with the disposal total efficiency of a plasma torch.

Our gasifiers have been developed in collaboration with the RINA Consulting - Centro Sviluppo Materiali spa, a subsidiary of RINA Group. Within the plasma torch we apply an American-made hybrid electrodes that have been used for over 50 years to dispose of urban MSW everywhere in the world.

Sustainable and successful treatment of MSW must be safe, effective, and environmentally friendly. BIOZIMMI was thought to solve the two main drawbacks of traditional landfills: surrounding areas of are often heavily polluted since it is difficult to keep dangerous chemicals from leaching out into the surrounding land and that any landfill can increase chances of global warming by releasing CH4, which is 20 times more dangerous as a greenhouse gas than CO2. Therefore, we find a more environmentally friendly alternative to treat MSW.

The gasifiers take advantage of the molecular dissociation, called pyrolysis, used to directly convert the organic materials present in the waste into gas, by heating, in the presence of small quantities of oxygen.

The processed materials are completely destroyed because their molecules are dissociated. The synthesis gas, even when of a low calorific value, once filtered and purified, can be used for the feeding of a cogenerator, thus enhancing the calorific value of the organic matrix used and can be contain costs simultaneously producing electrical and thermal energy, or it can be used for the production of reusable chemicals.

Moreover, it is possible to get practically pure water, thermal energy and methanol.

Our system is modular and consists, inside of each gasifier, of 3 reactors that can be operated individually or in unison. This is therefore an extremely flexible system, capable of treating different matrices simultaneously, modular and can be implemented, as needed, with further ancillary systems, able to maximize the efficiency of energy recovery.

Our gasification system involves the use of drying systems for pre-treating the incoming material or matrix. The dryer is fed through the process’ heat and allows to bring the input humidity of the matrix by the value of the conferral (normally value between 70% and 30%) to, approximately, 10%.

The matrix is dried in this way, is transported inside the reactor, where it is raised to temperatures ranging from 400 to 650 ° C, through the recovery of heat generated by the same syngas and by the same process of gasification that happens in the last part of the reactor. The waste is so subjected, quickly, to the total drying, pyrolysis and gasification.

The produced gas (syngas) are sent, after being washed and purified, to a turbine and / or to an endothermic engines. From their use, will be produced thermal KWs and electrical KWs or methanol. Part of the electricity will be used for self support the process (about 15%), the other will be used to reduce the costs of other energy-intensive processes within the plant or entered into the national network, if possible. The heat can be used locally for the drying or by creating a district heating network to create cold thanks to the inverters.

Once the gasification process has taken place, the only resulting waste product is ash, on average about 5-10% of the matrix entering the gasifiers. The part of the ash treated in the plasma torch will turn into a material that can be used for useful purposes without environmental risks.

The ash can be analyzed to assess its capacity for amending or usability as a building material.

In RINA Consulting - Centro Sviluppo Materiali spa, there is a pilot that can be visited, fully equipped with a plasma torch.

    • Abduction systems

      The collection trucks that will enter the sorting area, in depression, through a double-door decompression gate that prevents the escape of any emissions and odor molecula. Inside the depression area, the materials, before becoming the matrices to be used, they will undergo some mechanical pretreatment processes. We will start with a dimensional reduction (shredding) which allows to reduce the...

    • Achievable productions

      BIOZIMMI is a completely modular system and, therefore, according to the customer’s needs, it can be configured and equipped to cope with different productions: everything will depend on the modules chosen during the Feasibility Study and / or the Basic Design.

    • Brief description

      BIOZIMMI combines the gasifiers’ cost-effectiveness with the disposal total efficiency of a plasma torch.

    • Generable Energy

      The energy production generated in our plant is expressed with conservative values. As is obvious, each of our technologies has peculiar strengths: gasification maximizes energy yield while plasma torch maximizes inerting.

    • Mature core technologies

      Our plant is completely innovative in its design while relying on proven, mature technologies and, individually, commercially used for decades in different parts of the world.

    • Miscellanea

      Following other determining aspects of BIOZIMMI.

    • Not an incinerator!

      Our technology is completely different from the one on which are based any incinerators.

    • Plant size

      The process we designed is completely modular.

    • Scraps and their use

      We are talking about an atypical industrial plant which, instead of polluting, will proceed to remove pollution and improve people’s lives.

    • Zero emissions target

      Many manufacturers claim that they will not have emissions from their plants, few really are able to keep the point. With our technology that combines plasma torches, gasifiers, cavitators and advanced gas management systems, every molecule that escapes from the process represents a loss of profit. Applying the transitive property, therefore, a damage to the planet is equivalent to an economic...

    • Biodigestion

      The preparation of the substrate consists in obtaining the physical-chemical characteristics considered optimal for introduction into the biodigester.

    • Empowering Device

      Empowering Device has been fully conceived, developed and implemented by our team and is able to simultaneously manage different types of controlled cavitation, of which 5 of a different nature but which coexist harmoniously to the point that no significant vibrations are detected.

    • Gasification

      In nature there is no "waste", everything is recovered and put back into circulation in a virtuous cycle.

    • Mining

      The current evolution of mining passes thorough the abandonment of methods that are dangerous for man and the environment, such as the use of mercury and cyanides, to get to Borax, a modern and harmless method, which also allows a better yield in recovered gold.

    • Plasma

      For Plasma refers to a conductive gas, highly ionized. The torch or the non-transferred arc electrodes are capable of producing plasma at very high temperatures (the highest achieved in controlled industrial processes) and such as to cause thermochemical dissociation of what is being treated.

    • Soil washing

      Most of our specialists and technicians come from the Oil & Gas sector and, therefore, has been taught to everyone of them, since the early beginning, that any spillage in the soil must be avoided. This is not only for obvious environmental problems but also to avoid costly and annoying protests by environmental movements.
