Chipped woody biomass in the form of pieces with a defined particle size produced by mechanical treatment with wood chipers. (Wood chips have a sub-rectangular shape with a length of between 5 and 50 mm). In order to burn wood chips, they must first be dried, Suxé bulk dry the chips by using some of the excess heat from combustion fed back to the drying station at the fuel input stage. Increase of moisture content decreases the efficiency of energy production and increases flue gas amounts (incomplete combustion)
Densified biofuel made from pulverised woody biomass with or without additives, usually in cylindrical form, of various lengths but typically 5 to 40 mm, with broken ends. Wood pellets are generally made from compacted sawdust
Densified biofuel made with or without additives in cubiform or cylindrical units, produced by compressing pulverised biomass.
These fuels are preferred, because of the advantages they offer e.g. they are easier to handle and store, and feeding can be automated.
Wood is a Renewable energy source, it grows with the help of
When a tree decomposes it releases as much carbon dioxide (CO2) as when it is burned that means wood is considered as a CO2-neutral fuel
Wood becomes economic as a fuel choice for making electricity, if large quantities of wood are available in the area where the Power station is located. Long transportation distances increase the transport costs and increase the emmissions caused by the transportation.
The March 13, 2009 issue of Science magazine points out that creating thermal and electrical energy with Suxé advanced wood combustion by has been growing quickly throughout Europe. “Suxé burners release remarkably low quantities of air pollutants and have system-wide thermal efficiencies approaching 90 percent,” the cost of wood fuel is several times cheaper than fossil fuel costs (per unit of energy produced).
Suxé's design has been based on African needs.
Suxé burners provide a modern and 'Clean' solution to power generation problems using wood. Our high temperature combustion together with a computer controlled process that continuously moniors the amount of Oxygen in the combustion chamber.
Conventional wood burning equipment generally provides too much Oxygen and the free Oxygen (that which is not used in the combustion process) will combine with the Carbon to make Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide it will also combine with the Nitrogen from the air to make Nitrogen Oxide, Sulphur is not an issue with wood.
Suxé's Advanced combustion technology, continually monitors and adjusts the Oxygen input to provide exactly 100% of what Oxygen is needed to completely and perfectly burn the wood. Incomplete combustion produces Carbon Monoxide whereas complete combustion only produces only Carbon Dioxide
As wood is a Carbon Neutral fuel, this is the condition that Suxé strive for.

Suxé's Community Power Station can operate on Anthracite, coal, lignites, wood, wood chips, pelletised wood, waste derived fuels, bio-fuels or bamboo.
The Suxé Energy Centre has been purposely designed especially to suit the environment in Africa. The Energy Centre doesn't use steam to generate electricity it uses an air turbine, it has no need to be sited by water, or have a large dam constructed by the side of the power station, like other conventional power stations must do. Therefore it can operate anywhere so long as fuel is available.
Efficient combustion relies heavily on controlling the excess air going into the combustion chamber. Too much and you have free oxygen that can combine with nitrogen or sulphur, making nasty gases. Getting the oxygen content right is the job of Suxé's patented computer system. 97% combustion efficiency means NO harmful gases.
The revolutionary air turbine operates like a jet engine in reverse. Hot gas is compressed before the turbine and ambient temperature air is added. This expands rapidly creating a huge pressure in frot of the turbine. As the hot gas passes through the turbine it rotates and drives the rotation of the generator, which produces the electricity.
Due to the revolutionary air turbine and the fact that the Energy Centre needs no water to operate, it can be sited in the most unlikely and harsh environments. So long as there is an available fuel source locally, the Enery Centre will produce electricity. Which means the Suxé Energy Centre can be located at the end of a transmission line, where power is needed.
The Suxé Energy centre has been designed to plug together in 50MWe modules. Therefore the sizing of the power station is easy as for 200MWe you need 4 modules. These are delivered to site in containers that are simply plugged together. Everything is pre-tested before it leaves our factory, we deliver a power station to site that produce electricity immediately.
Suxé have been providing combustion equipment and burner solutions across the World since 1951. The basic principles have remained the same whilst the designs have been modernised to deal with 21st Century fuel source requirements. Modern solutions to modern problems.
Growing Bamboo around each power station can provide hundreds of new employment opportunities in each area.
