When it comes to sourcing an electricity supply, most companies look no further than plugging into the grid and buying their power at retail prices.

Where a secure and continuous supply is critical, many have back-up systems with standby generators or UPS – and when environmental issues are important, a few may have roof-mounted solar panels or a wind turbine, fine when the sun shines or the wind blows.

But how many have continuous heat and power generation where they get paid to receive their fuel?

North Wales company Refgas Ltd can make that happen, with its modular generator producing a “green” gas which then fuels standard reciprocating engines, generating heat and power continuously, 24/7.

Each Refgas module is capable of generating 1MW of electricity along with 1.4MW of heat, with multiple units being combined to deliver large-scale CHP solutions. The modules are each built in container-frame sections, easy and quick to transport and assemble, with designs for electricity outputs from 1-12 MWe and more.

The really neat part is that these units can use all sorts of waste materials to produce their “Syngas”, from waste wood extracted from construction/demolition material, to pellets manufactured from household or industrial waste. We pay to get rid of this stuff, so in essence, you are paid to receive your fuel!

“Ah, but I bet it’s a dirty process?”, I hear you say.

Well, Refgas is almost unique in being able to prove that its syngas is actually cleaner than natural gas. In fact, it is so clean that the authorities accredit it as being a product, rather than a waste, meaning that Refgas projects are not entombed with heavyweight waste and emissions legislation, unlike combustion processes.

The Refgas modules also offer a very compact, plug & play solution and can be located anywhere there is a stable, level site, with minimal site works required and only a basic building needed to protect the feedstock from the weather. Everything else is containerised and weatherproofed.

So, if you want to take control of your own power generation or ensure you have a cost-effective alternative, why not enquire about installing your own Refgas generating plant?
