Standard Gas Technologies Ltd. has contracted Rochdale, UK-based Dunphy Combustion Ltd. to supply gas burners and associated gas trains for its SG100 carbon-removing energy-from-waste plant currently under construction in Norfolk, UK.
“Highly competent, professional supplier”
Laurence Sharrock, Technical Director at Standard Gas, says: “In Dunphy, we’ve found an established, highly-competent and professional supplier for the burners that will heat our patented non-burn pyrolysis process that converts a wide range of non-recyclable wastes into clean, carbon-negative energy and carbon-removing char. We were impressed by Dunphy’s responsiveness, track record and global reach, and are delighted to now be working in partnership with their team. We anticipate a long, and fruitful collaboration.”
Standard Gas’ SG100 Advanced Thermal Cracking technology transforms a wide range of non-recyclable and hazardous wastes into a clean synthesis gas (syngas) and biochar. As it doesn’t burn waste, the process has very low emissions. Tar-free, the company’s syngas, which achieved End of Waste certification from the UK’s Environment Agency, can be used to generate electricity, and heat, or processed via methanation into transportation fuels, chemical feedstock or for grid injection. Coupled with electrolysis or via reformation, the SG100 can generate between 650 tonnes and 3,000 tonnes of Green hydrogen a year. The co-product biochar captures and removes carbon when used in sequestering applications such as soil enhancer or as a construction aggregate.
Carbon-removing sustainable energy from waste
Having proved the technology with its commercial-scale demonstration plant in Cambridgeshire, UK, the company’s first SG100 plant is under construction, also in the UK. Capable of processing 48,000 tonnes of waste a year, the SG100 can generate an average of 40,000 MW hours of power and, dependent on feedstock, remove up to 16,000 tonnes of CO2e. With a small footprint, the plant can be deployed in a modular manner, making it rapidly scalable for a range of end-use applications.
Dunphy’s Managing Director, Sharon Kuligowski, comments: “It is a privilege to work with a company which respects the environment and has the technology to shape a more sustainable future. Dunphy Combustion has a long history of leading best practice in engineering design and manufacture of burners from 500kW to 60MW, and for some years we’ve been researching and developing equipment and processes for new combustion technologies which will significantly minimise carbon and NOx emissions.”
Established in 1964, Dunphy Combustion Ltd. designs, manufactures, installs and maintains a wide range of combustion equipment, and turnkey prefabricated, packaged boiler houses. Its products and services are exported worldwide, and the company has won several Queen’s Awards for Export and Innovation.
