Güssing Renewable Energy GmbH proudly announces the signing of a license agreement with Edison Power Co. Ltd. for the exclusive rights to manufacture, build and operate the GRE FICFB Gasification Technology in Japan. The GRE DFB Gasification Technology, developed at the Vienna University of Technology, under the lead of Prof. Hermann Hofbauer, is the first functioning DFB (Fast Internally Circulating Fluidised Bed) plant worldwide. The first plant of this technology was commissioned in Güssing, Austria in 2002 and has since achieved over 80,000 operating hours.
The partnership with Edison Power Co. Ltd. foresees the construction of the first demonstration plant in 2014-2015. This first plant will serve as know-how transfer and to showcase the ability of this technology to potential public and private customers in Japan. The first commercial plant, with 1MW electric output, is scheduled in the Ibaragi prefecture in 2015.
Prime Minister Abe’s policy to activate Japan’s rural communities creates large potential for sustainable and renewable energy solutions. The GRE DFB Gasification Technology is a ready-to-use technology for the utilization of carbonic waste-streams for decentralized and CO2-neutral energy production.
Mr. Peter Panholzer, CEO of Güssing Renewable Energy GmbH: “We are happy and confident to step into a partnership with Edison Power in Japan, to provide our Carbon Recycling© technology and our community development to the Japanese communities."
