EU Green Deal and Q-Robot – from fossil fuels to biomass
The biomass material can be anything from straw stalks to felling waste, from branch pieces to plant leaves.
Solution: Prometec's Q-Robot takes an automated sample of the material at the moment of arrival at the power plant and sends the data to both the power plant and the material driver. Q-Robot is able to take samples of all kinds of crushed and granular materials.
A missing piece of quality control for solid biofuels is now being found
There have long been two major problems with quality control of biofuels. The first challenge is to automatically take representative samples of each load and the second is to obtain real-time information on the moisture content of the material before unloading the load. It seems that after Q-Robot, the latter problem is also coming to a solution.
The importance of biomass quality controlling
There are thousands of power plants around the world using biomass to generate heat and power, and hundreds of power plants are going to start using biomass or would like to convert at least part of their coal to biomass.
It’s all about safety
Workplace safety is a part of daily life in today’s work environment. Key then is to figure out how to decrease risk towards reaching the goal of zero incidents.
