Research & Development

Research activities, development and technological innovation represent for Syngen a fundamental tool for building solutions in the field of renewable energy and the environment.

The reality in which we are living, requires us to work hard in the conservation of natural resources, in the recovery of useful materials and in the generation of green energy.

It Is now essential to identify and develop winning technologies to have simple and effective solutions to increasingly intrusive problems.

Solutions actively developed in recent years, have now found the full commercial maturity, while other aspects continue to be investigated in order to create future innovations to be spread on a wider scale.

In the same way modifications and improvements on existing technologies are being tested to make them suitable for applications in competitive sectors that are different from the initial ones.

Syngen is highly motivated to promote in particular, applied research for the enhancement of  both energy and agronomic biomass  through their recovery.

With this aim in mind a fruitful collaboration with the Faculty of Agriculture of theCatholicUniversityhas been established to carry out research and experiments relating to the use of a corrective soil, produced with both civilian and agribusiness sludge.

A partnership has been agreed to with the Permanent Observatory on the Use of Biomass in Agriculture (BIOMASS) that has an active role within the Faculty of Agriculture of the Catholic University of Piacenza, through which the group’s activities, both productive and innovative and experimental, are assisted and monitored  through a rigorous experimental setting.

The technologies studied include:

BIOCASE – simplified system for dry anaerobic digestion with reactors in flexible materials

BIO-SOLFATO – system for the production of soil corrector derived from the chemical treatment of sewage sludge

BRIGIT – Brayton Reciprocating Isobaric GensetITaly– piston cogenerator operating with superheated air in the Brayton thermodynamic cycle

MWO – Mild Wet Oxidation – treatment of biological sludge in order to reduce the concentration of heavy metals and organic pollutants and to the dewatering

ANEX – Advanced Nitrogen EXtraction – physico-chemical treatment for the reduction of nitrogen of residual biomass, for agronomic use

GASIFICATION waste of agricultural crops

PYROLYSIS of sewage sludge aimed at the production of an integrator for road surfaces.
