CHARCOAL IN TURKEY
According to Turkeys Vision 2023 energy agenda installed capacity of coal power plants will increase from 15.0 to 30.0 GW, and installed capacity of biomass power plants will rise from nil to 2000 MW in 2023.
If everything goes according to plan and these massive investments can be financed, coal and biomass will support 25.0% and 1.7% of Turkey’s electricity demand in 2023
Respectively. Increased consumption of coal, mostly indigenous lignite, and biomass will decrease Turkey›s foreign trade deficit based on imported energy sources. However, their increased consumption will also rise Turkey’s greenhouse gas emissions. In that context, synergistic solution of co-firing and co-gasification of biomass with coal could help Turkey tackle its dependency on foreign energy sources and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Conditional that research and development in this field is supported both by the Turkish government and private sector.
In Turkey, total biomass production is expected to reach a level of 52.5 M/toe by 2030.
Biomass is the most widely used renewable energy source in the world today. It is used mostly in solid form and, to a lesser extent, in the form of liquid fuels and gas. The utilization of biomass for energy production has increased at only a modest rate in modern times. Biomass is the major source of energy in rural Turkey. Biomass is used to meet a variety of energy needs, including generating electricity, heating homes, fuelling vehicles and providing process heat for industrial facilities. Biomass potential includes wood, animal and plant wastes. Among the biomass energy sources, fuel wood seems to be the most interesting because its share of the total energy production of Turkey is high at 14%. The total biomass energy potential of Turkey is about 33 million tons of oil equivalents (Mtoe). The amount of usable biomass potential of Turkey is approximately 17 Mtoe. The electrical production potential from usable bioenergy sources are 73 MW in 2010 and corporate income and represent more than 280,000 jobs. This study shows that there is important biomass energy potential for climate change mitigation and energy sustainability in Turkey.
Traditional charcoal production in Turkey uses 7 ton of wood to produce one ton of charcoal
Our new technology uses 3 tons of wood to produce one ton of charcoal which means that we save around 68% of wood consumed.
In other words, our technology will increase the production rate with 250 % for the same amount of wood.
Our factory will save 50 employment chance for local employee as well as will save 33 million USD from charcoal import.
The new technology we use as our technology is saving emissions from the traditional methods by around 240 K tons of methane and carbon monoxide.
The scope of the project is biomass pyrolysis of tree trimming and wood lump to produce 5000 t/m of charcoal for sale in the local market. An annual amount of approximately 160,000 ton wood lump and biomass residuals and waste is suggested to be fed to a pyrolysis system where it will be converted to charcoal and methane gas. An annual amount of approximately 15,000 of biomass waste will be used in a gasification system to produce thermal energy required to the pyrolysis process The expected annually charcoal production is 60,000 ton at 90% availability. Any kind of waste which contains calories can be easily used in the gasification system.
As known to you all by now that using earth pile to produce charcoal is not the best method, in fact, it has a very devastating effect on the environment, health and economic. that’s why we introduce to you our own model of what is called “SMART KILN”
Clean Method Without any emissions
Efficient Kilns Little Time & Huge Capacity
High Charcoal Quality
Year round production
The amount of wood needed to generate the energy needed to produce 200 ton/day around the year is 270,000 ton of wood while using GPAMAG technology save all this amount by generating energy from waste
Reduce Toxic Emissions
Recycle Agricultural Waste
The land area which GPAMAG technology is saving is away from the land area which is consuming by conventional method (with conventional method you need 12 m2 to produce one ton while GPAMAG technology needs 2 square meters to produce one ton.
Local Economic Growth
Using our method of charcoal production enables the locals to have excess income with in return will be very developing for the local economy.
Savings on Health Expenses
After establishing the factory, locals will not have to use the old method to produce charcoal which will save them from toxic emissions from using old Kiln types.
Raising (QLI) For any city
With all of the old kiln gone there will be no smoke clouds over any city any more and the near villages will also have a clear air which will increase QLI (Quality of Life Index) for this district and it may attract more investments in other sectors as well.
