Since the Murphy’s Law encounter in Hollabrunn on May 2nd the team were anxious when meeting in Hollabrunn a month later – on June 12th 2014. But it turned out – we are back on track!
The testing of the new plasma nozzles and reactor designs re-confirmed that we are able to deliver NO gas with less than 100 GJ/tN energy input, and with a contribution from heat recovery we are now ready for business in some market segments already.
The lessons learned is that the most basic theories still apply, our patents are valuable, and we are moving in the right direction. The results are still better that the theories and simulations, making us confident that we have just seen the beginning of a development towards excellence (<36GJ/tN).
The frontrunner for the prototyping is a well-equipped unit able to record data, calculate performance and efficiency. Two principally different plasma generation methods are installed covering the range from 200 to 3000 watt. The frontrunner will initially give hot water as byproduct, but for the different applications we will be able to deliver energy byproducts as hot air or steam as well.
A promising day in Hollabrunn.
