In 2012,Güssing Renewable Energy GmbH, Austria (GRE) partnered with GP Energy in equity and licensed its state-of-the-art breakthrough technology, originally designed and developed by the Technical University of Vienna under Professor Hermann Holfbauer in 1995. GRE further developed the commercial application now available world wide.
GRE has successfully standardized “Fast Internally circulating Dual Fluidized Bed Gasification” technology, where besides agro waste or forest waste, RDF (Refused Derived Fuel) Feedstock from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) can also be gasified. In addition to power and heat, synthetic Fuel and Hydrogen can also be used as vehicular fuel. GRE has been operating a 8MW plant in Austria for selling of electricity and heat to a community since 2001. Presently, GP Energy is the EPC and hardware supplier for GRE’s Projects in Thailand and Japan.
Carbon Recycling is a registered trademark of GRE. It stands for precise allocation of CO2 emission to our feedstock providers, members of the CXC platform for carbon recycling. GP Energy and GRE believe and rely on the principle of complete Carbon Recyc-ling as a part of the resource evolution. Biomass growth is an original and natural form of CO2 storage.
Biomass (waste wood, branch, twig, agricultural residues, organic household and industrial waste, sewage sludge etc.) is utilized for energy production. Compared to combusting fossil energy sources (oil, natural gas, coal) where CO2 is released, the energy production form biomass the perpetual fuel, is CO2 neutral, because released CO2 during energy generation is absorbed during its growing-cycle.
