Since 2001, XYLOWATT designs, delivers and operates Biomass to Energy plants, converting natural and recycled woodchips into valuable and renewable energy. XYLOWATT’s NOTAR® gasifier is the sole industrial reactor that produces clean syngas from biomass without any tar residues. Combined with cogeneration engines, our units supply our clients with renewable electricity, heat and cold. NOTAR® power plants are designed following a circular economy model: covering the customer’s energy needs by valorising locally available biomass. The production units are developed into a fully integrated ZERO WASTE process: all by-products are valorised onsite to supply additional heat.
