Thermal Gasifier for steam boilers
The Company set up in 2008 a Biomass gasification system using gliricidia to operate the steam boilers, which were using imported furnace oil.
The system can replace 1 litre of furnace oil with 4 kgs of dried and processed gliricidia at 20% moisture level.
The gasifier is capable of delivering 1200 kw which is equivalent to a diesel consumption of 95 liters per hour.
Branches of mature gliricidia trees are harvested every 6 months from Plantations grown in coconut estates in a sustainable manner.
The process of collecting, processing and supplying gliricidia fuel wood enables the growers to be self-employed, whilst saving foreign exchange to the country.
