1. waste inputs

Inputs include:

  • Municipal solidwaste
  • Biomass
  • Sewagesludge
  • Manufacturingwaste
  • Non-recyclable plastics
  • Hospitalwaste
  • Agriculturalwaste
  • Any other organic waste material*

*No anorganic waste material like metal, glass, stones, etc.

2. Waste pre-conditioning

2. Waste pre-conditioning
  • Untreated waste is processed to remove the recyclables
  • Then dried to a moisture content of 20% or lower

3. Waste storage

3. Waste storage
  • Pre-conditioned waste travels into a storage vessel to ensure a constant supply of input material
  • From the storage to the reformer vessel, oxygen is removed, allowing conversion without combustion
  • No production of toxic oxidized pollutants (e.g. dioxins and furans) in an oxygen-starved environment

4. Reformer process

4. Reformer process

The gas produced in the thermolyser then travels to the separate reforming vessel, where it is transformed into high quality SYN-gas.

2-stage thermolysis process:

  • Waste, heated > 400 °C, is converted directly into gaseous form, due to the lack of oxygen
  • Unlike other waste-to-energy technologies Synthec Fuels uses heat transfer to convert the waste

5. Products

5. Products
  • SYN-gas (with twice the efficiency rate of standard technologies)
  • Hydrogen
  • E-Fuels
  • Methanol
  • Ammonia

6. By-products

6. By-products

All by-products created during energy production can be recycled/reused, including:

  • BioChar for agricultural & filtration applications
  • Clean water
  • Ash
  • CO2
  • Heat:
  • for conversion of further energy
    for producing hot water
    for cooling

7. Option: Electricity production

7. Option: Electricity production
  • SYN-gas can also directly fuel combustion engines to produce electricity, unlike similar technologies that use lower-efficiency steam turbines
  • Initial start-up of the power plant requires an external fuel source, after which it is a fully self-sustaining system, powered by waste

The term Full-Load-Hour is a unit of measurement used to indicate the degree of utilization of a plant. Since plants do not usually run at full load all year round, but sometimes only operate at partial load or are shut down for maintenance. The maximum number of Full-Load-Hours per year is 8,760 hours (365 days with 24 hours each) and depending on the type of plant, weather conditions of the respective year and plant-specific restrictions.

Hydrogen Logistics

State-of-the-Art Hydrogen Storage Concepts have Significant Drawbacks

Compressed (CGH2)

160 – 750 bar

  • Low storage density
  • High capex and maintenance costs
  • Large safety zones


Flammable Gas

Cryogenic (LH2)

–253 °C

  • Very high energy consumption
  • Very high capex and maintenance costs
  • Not suitable for longer-term storage (e.g. boil – off)
  • Large safety zones

Synthec Fuels’ Logistic Solution for Export

Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) enable a safe and efficient Transport of Hydrogen at ambient Conditions

Exothermic – ca. 250 °C
25 – 50 bar

The LOHC technology
uses basic chemical processes to eliminate the
complexities of today’s hydrogen handling

Endothermic – ca. 300 °C
1 – 3 bar

Low Cost and a highly flexible Supply Chain based on existing Fuel Infrastructure are Key to a full Commercial Roll-Out
