PN POWER PLANTS AG
PN Power Plants AG
PN Power Plants AG represents the broad knowledge spectrum of a high-performance company and its partners. We are working on the environmentally friendly and sustainable energy supply of tomorrow – with the goals of environmental protection, growth and internationalization, especially in the Asian market.
A key factor why Uneek Energy Solutions have partnered with PN Power Plants AG is that they are able to design and engineer the most efficient advanced waste processing technology based on the tonnage being larger than 150 TPD with a makeup of sustainable fuel sourced in calorific value of the provided feedstock.
Biomass Cogeneration Plants
Biomass cogeneration plants – a technology that is suitable for baseload and has great potential for development in the current state of economic and ecological knowledge.
The biomass cogeneration plants we build almost exclusively process renewable raw materials that have already undergone all other cycles of use. Waste wood to be incinerated in biomass cogeneration plants usually has its last life form: from a cabinet or a roof truss, after the primary use, for example, composite wood has become, and after this composite wood has passed its cycle of use, it has become scrap wood. The moment we harness it for energy, it has reached its final and meaningful use cycle. It is important to know that the burning of wood releases no more CO2 than the original plant absorbed from the atmosphere during its lifetime.
Corn, which is often referred to as biomass for sustainable energy production, does not have these usage cycles. He is transferred from his first energetic life form directly into the last one. This is obviously not sustainable and therefore not regenerative. It costs too much energy – and it drives world food prices up. This promotes dangerous tendencies among those who depend on affordable food and can at best only provide a short-term profit for a few. Some of our beliefs about “sustainable” and “renewable” energy production differ significantly from our competitors.
That is why we focus on the combustion and fermentation of biological residues in biomass cogeneration plants and on wind power.
Sustainability & Energy
PN Power Plants AG defines sustainable energy production as the balanced interaction of the use of regenerative energies, coupled with high business efficiency.
Only those concepts that work without overexploitation and at the same time are efficient are sustainable, ie ecologically responsible and economically feasible. Decisive for the feasibility of a project under the premise of sustainability in the sense described above, is always the location issue of a project with the locally available natural resources, such as the prevalence of constant wind or sufficient resources of residual wood. These factors ultimately decide whether a solution is sustainable and regenerative. The conditions for the use of renewable energies depend on topographical and climatic conditions, which differ significantly within Germany, within Europe and the world. These differences have guided us in our plans for new power plant locations,
That’s why we first decided on the technologies that can be used in a sensible and efficient way in our latitudes:
The benefits of using wind energy, the engine of the energy transition, are obvious. Wind is free to have ample and permanent. For relatively resource-poor countries such as Germany, this means an additional waiver of imports. During operation, there is no emission of pollutants such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide as in conventional electricity generation in power plants. Low emissions only accrue in the manufacture, construction and maintenance of wind turbines. Again, it depends on the right location and the performance of the equipment. In addition to optimizing existing sites on land, we will continue to focus on environmental science expertise in offshore planning.
At power plant locations designed by us, it makes sense to make use of surfaces such as large-scale roofs of warehouses by equipping them with photovoltaic systems to increase the energy yield. Open spaces are not a “reproducible good”, so we see land potentials especially where there is no competition to other development goals of a free landscape in the sense of sustainability.
