Innovative small scale polygeneration system combining biomass and natural gas in a micro gas turbine

Objective

Goal - The project aims at demonstrating the technical and economical possibility of generating heat, cold and power in a small scale system (BIO_MGT) based on an EU-manufactured MGT combining solid biomass and natural gas combustion in an innovative way. The BIO_MGT system - BIO_MGT matches an externally fired cycle with an open MGT (100 kWe) cycle. Hot flue gases generated by the bio-furnace flow into a high temperature heat exchanger, which preheats the air from the compressor. 40-60 % of the total energy input is given by solid biomass: the remaining is provided by CH4 internal combustion. The flue gas stream at the MGT outlet is mixed with the hot flow from the bio-furnace: the mixed gases supply the HE hot side. The plant than delivers power, heat and (through an absorption chiller) cold to the end-user.
