An innovative Chinese biomass plant in the region of Liaoning achieves full production of the necessary heat and power.

The Opportunity:

Anshan is an inland in central- southeast Liaoning province, about 92 km south of the provincial capital Shenyang. It is Liaoning‘s third-most populous city with a population of 3.65million. Anshan is home to the Anshan Iron and Steel Group, one of the largest steel producers in China. Anshan holds onethird of the world‘s supply of talcum and a quarter of the world‘s reserves of magnesite.

Currently, higher-yielding corn (maize) and rice, formerly grown mainly in the east and southeast, have tended to supplant millet and kaoliang (a variety of grain sorghum) in the plains. The surplus of corn crops is currently being used as raw material of a biomass gasification process to produce a syngas that is used as fuel for the Guascor Energy gas engine and the subsequent energy production.

Following the partnership establishment between Beijing Huasheng and Guascor Energy in 2017 and the successful introduction of the first CHP based on a Guascor Energy gas engine in Liaoning.

Anshan Hi-Tech development zone laser industrial base to resolve its energy demand of cooling, heating and power, now again Guascor Energy is playing a key role into Chinese green industry development and is making an extraordinary contribution to transition of China’s energy structure.

The Solution

In this occasion, Beijing Huaseng has designed and built a pilot power station simulating the real operating conditions and parameters of a corn stalks gasification process. This gasification process is able to generate enough syngas to feed a Guascor Energy G-56SL engine and cover the plant‘s heat and electricity demand.

Apart from the Guascor Energy G-56SL generation set, the power station comprises a gasifier with 1000 m3/h of gas production capacity and the auxiliary equipment that consists of a biomass bin, a bet conveyor system, a load box and a gas pretreatment system.

After three months of hard operation, using corn and corn stalks as raw material, the power station has achieved 803 kW electrical and 1135 kW thermal at full load operation. Another successful history of the Guascor Energy gas engines producing heat and electricity from a biomass material.
