Large research infrastructure ENREGAT – Energy Waste Recovery and Gas Treatment
Research infrastructure ENREGAT offers access to the facilities and technological units focused on energy recovery of waste and off-gases treatment and cleaning.
ENREGAT represents a unique base for the comprehensive research of of combustion, pyrolysis and anaerobic digestion of waste materials, as well as the catalytic, sorption and photocatalytic cleaning and membrane separation of the resulting gases. In addition, ENREGAT also allows research in related areas and provides complex analytical services.
The uniqueness of ENREGAT infrastructure lies in the ability to perform basic and applied research focused on several waste-to-energy technologies from the laboratory up to pilot plant scale for a wide range of waste and thus to assess the suitability of the technology for the selected type of waste. Additionally, it allows research on a number of technologies for the abatement of different gaseous pollutants (e.g. nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, organic substances) through laboratory tests up to pilot scale verification for waste incineration, which is available here.
Large research infrastructure ENREGAT was included to the Czech Roadmap of Large Infrastructures for Research, Development and Innovation from January 2019. Thanks to the targeted support from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (project No. LM2023056), ENREGAT infrastructure is available in open access free of charge for wide scientific community. Enterprises and commercial customers can use ENREGAT in collaborative or contractual research mode.
