G2E Biomass Gasification Plant

Green to Energy

G2E transforms biomass waste and provides a gasification technology solution to industrial and rural communities across Mexico.

Product description Brand name and product description

G2E provides a gasification technology solution for rural communities, in the form of biomass gasification plants which have a generation capacity of 15 kW up to 2 MW.

The purpose of the biomass gasification plant is not only to produce electrical energy but to polygenerate and produce electricity, heat and gas. During the power generation process, there is the possibility to produce biochar as an alternate product. Biochar is composed of 80% carbon and can be used for soil enhancement. Biochar is a way to fix CO2 in soil for hundreds of years, therefore it is a carbon-negative energy. (Watch an introduction video to biochar.)

G2E adapts the solution to the customers’ needs and to the biomass that is available. G2E has a biomass gasification demonstration center in Mexico City, with 4 gasifiers with different features to evaluate/compare technological and energy performance of different biomass feedstocks and technology modifications.

Green to Energy is located in Mexico City, Mexico.
