MWM gas gensets generate energy from kitchen waste

Its recently installed projects in China show their capabilities in producing energy from waste treatment projects.

MWM gas gensets offer many advantages in terms of sustainable and clean decentralised energy supply. In addition to natural gas, they can be operated with a variety of biogases and reliably generate electricity, heat and, if required, cooling.

As the population grows, so does the amount of waste. At the same time, the challenges to disposing of it sensibly are increasing. In several recently installed projects in China, MWM gas gensets are helping to produce energy from kitchen waste.

Recently, the largest kitchen waste treatment project in China—"Guangzhou Likeng comprehensive treatment plant"—was successfully connected to the grid for power generation.

The Likeng comprehensive treatment plant is currently the largest environmental protection project for kitchen waste treatment in China, with an average daily treatment capacity of about 1000 tons. The project will treat about 350,000 tonnes of kitchen waste every year, with an estimated annual power generation of about 48 million kWh and a carbon dioxide emission reduction of more than 15,000 tonnes per year.

The main processes of the project are "Pretreatment + Anaerobic digestion + Wastewater Treatment + Biogas Power Generation". The kitchen waste containing a large amount of organic matter will produce biogas after anaerobic fermentation and decomposition. After purification by the pretreatment system, the biogas will enter the gas genset for power generation.

MWM distributor PAUWAY has provided three MWM TCG 2020 V20 biogas generating units (single unit output power of 2000kW) for the project. All of the energy generated will be "self-utilised and surplus electricity connected to grid power." PAUWAY is also in charge of the design and subsequent maintenance of all power systems for this project.

MWM supports urban green, low-carbon and sustainable development in Qingdao

In Qingdao, China, kitchen waste will also be used to generate energy in the future. Two flat trucks carrying MWM gas gensets recently drove into a domestic waste comprehensive treatment park in Qingdao, officially kicking off the on-site construction phase of MWM distributor PAUWAY's Qingdao kitchen waste power generation project. In the next month, PAUWAY's engineers will be responsible for the installation and commissioning of the equipment and help ensure the smooth operation of Qingdao's first kitchen waste treatment project.

PAUWAY has delivered two MWM TCG 2020 V16 gas gensets for the project according to customer needs and field visits. The power generation of a single generator unit is 1.56mW. After the unit is put into operation, it will meet the power demand in the park, and all the surplus power will be connected to the grid. It is estimated that the annual on-grid power will be about 25 million kWh, thus reducing carbon emissions by more than 3300 tons and saving about 666,667m2 of landfill land.

This waste comprehensive treatment park is an important part of Qingdao's environmental sanitation infrastructure. It undertakes the task of waste disposal in the main urban area and high-tech zone and has the important function of ensuring the normal operation of the city. After the completion of the project, the daily treatment of waste can reach 500 tons, which will make up for the shortboard of waste terminal treatment capacity in Qingdao, and the waste treatment level will reach "domestic leading", which will effectively promote the sustainable development of green and low-carbon in the city!

The MWM gas generator sets of the TCG 2020 series are perfectly geared to the challenges of a dynamic market environment. In the output range of 1,000–2,000 kWel, they meet the high requirements of a broad range of applications and guarantee efficiency, reliability, flexibility, and environmental sustainability, together with low lifecycle costs and high profitability.

Over the past 150 years, MWM has always taken "energy, efficiency, and environment" as its mission, continued to innovate, and is committed to the research and development and production of gas engines and generator sets that make efficient use of clean energy, to promote the application of green and clean energy with practical actions and contribute to the sustainable development of energy.
