puts the power in your hands, to make a difference.
Our innovation enables efficient electricity and heat production using your local biomass. Wood in the form of wood chips or pellets is superheated to form wood gas, which fuels the internal combustion engine that runs the generator. Heat from the process is recovered into water. One Volter 40 CHP produces enough electricity and heat for the annual needs of a farm, an entire small housing estate or small business. Multiple units can be combined together for larger plants.
Our solution offers several unique benefits:
Ecological – Replacing fossil fuels with CO2 neutral biomass
Economical – With a competitive price per kWh
Reliable – Most uptime with high level of automation and premium quality
Easy to use – With the easiest user interface and highest level of automation in the market
Available – When other forms of local renewable energy are down
Space saving – with the smallest plant footprint in the market
Flexible – With both wood chips and pellets as sources of fuel
Scalable – Multiple units can be combined together for larger plants.
This is how it works
Gasification of biomass
Woodchips or pellets are fed into the gasifier where combustion occurs at low oxygen levels and high temperatures, forming clean gasification gas.
Cooling down the gas
The heat exchanger cools down the gas to 200 °C.
Filtering the particles
The filter separates all solid particles out of the gas.
Air mixing and engine
The secondary heat exchanger cools down the gas to 60 °C and mixes it with air. The cooled gas goes to the combustion engine which runs the generator.
Electric power output
Volter 40 CHP outputs 40Kw electric power.
Heating power output
Volter 40 CHP outputs 100 kW Heating power as warm water and 20 kW Heating power as warm air.
