CEDER-CIEMAT

The research we conduct at the Thermal Conversion Processes Unit is geared towards the development and implementation of systems for producing energy from biomass and solid waste, via the thermal processes of combustion and gasification. We also seek opportunities to develop new processes for energy recovery from biomass and solid waste.
With regard to combustion, we use our pilot plants to study the effect of operating conditions on process efficiency and gaseous and particle emissions, with a view to implementing the system in larger plants, evaluating compliance with emissions standards and analysing the processes of sintering, slag formation and corrosion. With regard to gasification, we carry out tests in the pilot plants in order to determine the effect of operating conditions on the gasification process and the quality of the gas obtained, with a view to applying and utilizing this approach in industrial-scale plants.

 

 

CEDER-CIEMAT

El Centro de Desarrollo de Energías Renovables (CEDER) está especializado en la investigación aplicada, desarrollo y fomento de las energías renovables. Dependiente del CIEMAT y adscrito al Departamento de Energía de este organismo público de investigación, su actividad de I+D+I se centra en el aprovechamiento energético de la biomasa en toda su cadena de valor, además de estudios relacionados con la energía eólica en aerogeneradores de baja potencia y la búsqueda de soluciones prácticas para la integración de fuentes de generación renovables en microrredes inteligentes. Cuenta con un equipo de profesionales con alta cualificación técnica e infraestructuras tecnológicas de carácter demostrativo, que prestan asimismo soporte técnico a empresas e instituciones energéticas nacionales e internacionales.
