Stadtwerke Weil am Rhein - Switching to a CO2 neutral energy supply


Stadtwerke Weil am Rhein, located at the border triangle of Germany, Switzerland and France, is facing one of the most important key tasks of our time, the changeover to a CO2-free energy supply. They are relying on the innovative technology of AGRO Forst & Energietechnik in converting their combined heat and power plant. The combustion plant (heat output: 1,250 kW) including AGRO flue gas condensation (heat output 300 kW) is heated with residual wood such as branches, tops and damaged wood from the regional forestry, which cannot be used in the sawmill. We are very pleased that we are able to support the city of Weil am Rhein in making its contribution to climate protection.

Condensing technology with AGRO flue gas condensation

The two AGRO biomass boilers (4,000 kW and 800 kW - see also our news entry from March 2019) including flue gas condensation of the Nähwärme Eibiswald have been in operation since the end of January. Already in the first months of operation the performance parameters of the flue gas condensation are particularly remarkable. The sophisticated technology of AGRO flue gas condensation allows the plant to be operated without thermal losses - at a return temperature of 45° C the flue gas is discharged via the stack at a temperature of 46° C. At a water content of 40%, this achieves an efficiency of over 110%. By using this special technology, it is possible to operate a wood-fired combined heat plant with condensing technology. Especially the high efficiency of the plant allows to further optimize the CO2 reduction.

Bioenergie Killertal installs AGRO steam cogeneration

BEK Bioenergie Killertal GmbH in Jungingen/Germany has installed a new biomass steam cogeneration plant and relies on AGRO Forst & Energietechnik in this matter. The AGRO CHP plant has an output of 2.4 MW/th. and 710 kW/el. (3.5 to/h steam capacity). As turbine a 9-stage M+M turbine was used. The primary objective of the plant is to supply heat to the adjacent industrial halls on the company premises of RIDI Leuchten GmbH - one of the leading manufacturers of technical and design-oriented lightings in Europe. The biomass plant is used for heating purposes in winter, air conditioning in summer and the supply of technical heat for a large painting plant as well as drying for agricultural goods in seasonal cycles. The plant went into operation at the end of 2019.
