RESEARCH PROJECT “BIO WASTE STIRLING”
In partnership with the Chair of Energy Process Engineering at the FAU Erlangen and the municipal utility of Wunsiedel, a fluidised bed combustion was developed for the thermal utilisation of different biogenic residues (e.g. hay and straw pellets, pressed fermentation residues and sewage sludge pellets).
For this purpose, an A600 alpha Stirling engine was equipped with a heat exchanger designed specifically for fluidised bed applications.
The system was in test operation until the end of the project March 2021, but it has been demonstrating an extremely satisfactory performance since the beginning.
