Beltran: The technology of choice for a full range of industrial applications

Constantly evolving industrial technologies and environmental regulations pose extraordinary challenges in the design and manufacture of air pollution control and new energy systems. That’s why the hallmark of every Beltran solution is flexibility—the ability to adapt, expand and perform efficiently and reliably under operating conditions that are increasingly complex and changeable.

Beltran's comprehensive yet flexible approach means individual components can be added, modified, enhanced or replaced in response to technological advances or new regulatory requirements, or to achieve greater efficiencies or competitive advantages. No matter how or where your company operates, Beltran can design and implement a site-specific, cost-efficient solution to meet your emission control needs.

BIOMASS GASIFICATION and COGENERATION
(Waste-to-Energy)
Beltran Biomass Cogeneration System: An integrated waste-to-energy solution using gasification on a variety of carbonaceous feedstocks to produce syngas for combined heat and power, marketable byproducts.
A) GASIFICATION: Thermochemical reactor vessel with cyclone separator
     produces combustible synthesis gas, char, ash and trace emissions.
B) CLEANING: WESP removes submicron particulates, impurities and
     recoverable chemicals from syngas.
C) GENERATION: IC Engine burns syngas fuel to drive electric generator;
     surplus heat used for local heating, or steam turbine co-generator.
D) COMMERCIAL BYPRODUCTS: Purified syngas a potential source of
     hydrogen (for fuel cells), synfuels, ethanol, methanol,
     petrochemical intermediates, etc.
