The Integrated Pyrolysis Regenerated Plant (IPRP) concept is based on a Gas Turbine (GT) fuelled by pyrogas produced in a rotary kiln slow pyrolysis reactor; pyrolysis process by-product, char, is used to provide the thermal energy required for pyrolysis. An IPRP demonstration unit based on an 80 kWE microturbine was built at the Terni facility of the University of Perugia. The plant is made of a slow pyrolysis rotary kiln pyrolyzer, a wet scrubbing section for tar and water vapor removal, a micro gas turbine and a treatment section for the exhaust gases. This paper describes the plant layout and expected performance with different options for waste heat recovery.
