Cogeneration and trigeneration

Cogeneration:
energy efficiency perfectly fitted to suit your company's size

Our company's motto is "Best Energy Sources". This very concretely summarizes our mission: BioBrent enables companies to nourish and increase their business without wasting resources by creating substantial energetic and economic savings.
When we speak of cogeneration, in fact, we are referring to a process that enables the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fossil fuel or renewable form of energy (natural gas, biogas, vegetable oil). In order to do so, innovative technologies and high efficiency are needed in order to ensure a significant energy savings far superior to traditional methods: the latter, in fact, do not make use of the thermal energy used in combustion.
Cogeneration is used mainly in the industrial sector and in general, to power structures that consume large amounts of energy: hotels, shopping malls, office buildings, industrial laundry, chemical and pharmaceutical plants, oil refineries, etc.
The energy-saving advantages obtained by using BioBrent systems will spectacularly anticipate the return on the investment, ensuring a remarkable payback.


Trigeneration:
from hot to cold, without stopping

Trigeneration is the simultaneous production of electricity, heating, and cooling energy.
The thermal energy recovered by the cogenerator is transformed into cooling thanks to the unique combination of an absorption chiller the uses either warm or hot water as a source of primary energy. The absorption unit does not emit climate gases and has zero impact. Combined with a CHP, it allows the use of heat that would otherwise be lost to the environment.
The absorption refrigeration unit may produce chilled water at a temperature of 7 degrees celsius and therefore suitable to a large part of refrigeration systems. The chilled water can be used for environmental, civil, or industrial air conditioning in the summer and serves as an alternative for the production of renewable electrical energy.
Trigeneration in general allows for an increase in the hours of use of the system and consequently produces an economic advantage, reducing the return time on the investment (payback).
