SIZE REDUCTION & DENSIFICATION DIRECTORY 2017Size Reduction & Densification Directory 2017Size reduction and densification - two of the most widely established and used forms of solid biomass pre-treatment.Reducing bulk volume and increasing bulk density means a more uniform product, better payloads and enables longertransport distances. Depending on the downstream application, size reduction is, as the term implies, reducing the overall size of a variable feedstock to produce a more uniform size-specific product, say converting roundwood or billets intomicro-chips. Or it can be an issue of increasing the surface area for a better reaction, say in a biogas plant, or convertingwood pellets to a powder for combustion. Densification on the other hand, for pellets or briquettes, is about increasingthe bulk density of size reduced material by compressing particles together.There are many manufacturers and suppliers of these types of equipment and the purpose of this directory is to providean overview. To qualify companies have to be engaged in export and/or have subsidiaries in other regions, the countryshown is where it is headquartered.

eaking forMälarenergi's unit 7 CHPWork has begun on building Mälarenergi AB's Block 7, anew waste wood-fired 150 MW combined heat and power(CHP) plant that will replace the last remaining fossil fuelfired parts of its energy complex in Västerås, Sweden. OnOctober 4, a ground-breaking ceremony was held by theSwedish municipal energy utility to mark constructionstart of its new Block 7 CHP at its energy complex inVästerås. Led by Niklas Gunnar, Business Area Manager forHeat at Mälarenergi, participants included local politicians,the company’s board of directors along with staff, clientsand suppliers.– this means that we will fulfil our most ambitious goal ever.Block 6 was an important step in our journey towards the future of society,and with Block 7 we are now moving all the way to being free from fuelslike coal and oil, said Staffan Jansson, Chairman of the Board.The new Block 7 plant represents an investment of SEK 1.7 billion ( EUR 179 million) and is expected to be operational in three years. WithBlock 7, the oldest 50-year parts of the complex will be phased out, deliveries of affordable district heating will be secured and the energy production will be free from coal and oil.– District heating is the absolute best form of heating and Västerås isone of the best examples in the world. 98 percent of the urban area isconnected to the network. Now, we take the next step toward more sustainable energy production to provide customers with a still safe and affordable heating form, said Niklas Gunnar, Business Area Manager forHeat at Mälarenergi.BMH Technology awarded complete fuel handlingAs previously reported in Bioenergy International, Sumitomo SHI FWhas been contracted to supply the 152 MWth circulating fluidised bed(CFB) boiler with auxillary equipment. Finland-headed material handlingsystem and equipment supplier for the energy and environmental sector,BMH Technology Oy, was also selected by Mälarenergi AB, for theSchematic of the Block 7 CHP (bottom) with fuel handling system with theexisting Block 6 (top) waste-fired CHP. BMH Technology is the supplier of thefuel handling and preparation solution for both CHP units (image courtesy PerNyström, Scheiwiller Svensson Arkitektkontor AB).delivery and installation of a complete fuel handling facility for the newboiler unit 7 which will use recycled wood as fuel.Delivery and assembly of the fuel handling plant will take place in 2019and the plant will be commissioned in early 2020. The order value is approximately SEK 120 million ( EUR 12.56 million).– We are very proud to once again be entrusted by Mälarenergi to become their partner for another delivery of a complete fuel management facility and help to make Västerås free from coal and oil, said Thomas Karlsson, CEO of BMH Technology AB, the Swedish subsidiary.BMH’s delivery consists of a receiving pocket for wheel loaders as wellas side-tipping and reversing trucks, fuel preparation with magnetic separation of metal contaminants and screening/crushing of oversized materials, a 6 000 m³ fuel storage silo with rotary screw feeder and silo and boilerconveyor system.All ancillary equipment and systems, as well as complete electrificationand automation, are also included in the delivery. The capacities are 700m³ per hour to the silo and 350 m³ per hour to the boiler.– We have great confidence in BMH as we cooperated with them in thepast and look forward to delivering a fuel management to our new facilitythat will help us achieve our most ambitious goal ever. Namely, using onlyrecycled and renewable fuels, said Niklas Gunnar, Business Area ManagerHeat at Mälarenergi.Text: Alan SherrardBI96/5918/ASWood chip boilersandWood chipping machinesQuality „Made in Germany“ - since 35 yearsEnergy in Balance with NatureMaicha 21 · D-91710 Gunzenhausen · Tel.: 49 (0) 9836/9797-0 · i[email protected] · www.heizomat.com3 6 B i o e n e r g y I n t e r n a t i o n a l No 96, 6-2017BioInt96.indd 362017-10-31 17:37
