Complete solutions for biomass boiler ash handling

The Challenge

The cost of producing energy from biomass is very much dependent on efficient handling of the various types of biomass available and the efficiency of each process. The burning process generates ash with high temperatures. This ash (either bottom or fly ash) needs to be cooled and/or processed to a form that can be transported from the plant.

The solution
