Biomass CHP Plant Güssing
In 2001, Repotec made a breakthrough in biomass gasification with the CHP plant Güssing. Since then, the plant, based on a steam fluidized-bed gasification (prototype plant of the FICFB-process), reliably delivers electricity and heat for the municipality of Güssing for now more than 58.000 operating hours.
Furthermore, the system provides a platform for numerous research projects.
