Biofuel burners

Biomass and waste gasification have emerged in recent years as a replacement for conventional fuel oil and gas applications. With biomass-based gasification, gas burner customers can reduce their plant's CO2 emissions and convert even the most challenging solid fuels and waste products into clean energy.

We have extensive experience of supplying syngas burners for several Finnish and European customers. Our syngas burner provides a compact solution for burning gases with low heat value without any additional auxiliary fuel and with high efficiency and availability.

These burners can be operated reliably in both combustion chambers and in water-tube boilers. The burners are supplied with a facility to use auxiliary fuel (gas/oil) for burner start-up and in situations where the primary fuel is not available.

A typical gasification gas burner system includes a burner and an auxiliary fuel train. A burner management system is also available as an option.
