Forests occupy 27% of the total land surface. About 3.6 billion hectares (24-27% of land) are occupied by forests on the planet. Without exaggeration, forests are the most important factor in the ecological balance on the planet.
At the same time, wood is mankind's most valuable resource: an excellent building material and a source of valuable chemical products. Wood products are environmentally friendly and in high demand in markets around the world. Our task is to maximize the use of this resource. In wood processing, up to 45% of all raw materials go to waste. Usually this raw material is simply burned (with the release of harmful substances) or sent to a landfill. We at UNIVASTUM want to change that.
Wood processing waste is an excellent raw material for gasification. It is especially interesting that the energy (in the form of electricity and heat) obtained as a result of applying WARP ® GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGY can be successfully applied in the wood processing process itself. Unlike direct combustion, gasification does not produce harmful substances like phenols, dioxins and furans.
Sawdust and shavings, including particle board
From sawing wood, furniture.
Green or live branches
The results of urban gardening services, sanitary deforestation waste.
Pulp, paper and paperboard production
The lignins produced in the production of pulp cause enormous environmental damage. They can be used as raw materials in the UNIVASTUM WARP® reactor. In the manufacture of paper and cardboard, a large amount of heat and steam is required. The heat source may be the W2E complex.
If necessary, heat can be used for drying. WARP ® GASIFICATION TECHNOLOGY allows for the use of wood processing waste impregnated with chemical compounds.
Parameters: 1 Module
Disposal per year
1,5 - 4 MW
3,5 - 7 GСal
Heat per hour
The modular design makes it easy to install from 1 to 5 complexes on one site. The small area of the complex and the small size of the sanitary zone allows you to place complexes on the territory of the factory. We can work with waste of various calories from 6 mJ.
Waste Treatment;Wood chip, lignins → Drying, pelletizing;Bulk or oversized → Chopping and splitting
Mobility;The complex consists of containers and can be transported to a new facility
Resources;Site → From 0.15 to 1ha;External Resources → Up to 1 m³/hour of water and 0.4 kV, 150 kW of electricity
Our Advantages & Benefits

Reducing the cost of woodworking, implementing additional measures to improve the quality of life of workers and the population, using additional resources for reforestation.
Image and reputation
A company that cares for the preservation of the environment certainly improves its reputation both in the eyes of the local population and the world.
Reduction or elimination of environmental fees / fines
Projects payback in 3-8 years.
Health and Ecology
In the process of gasification, the system does not come in contact with the surrounding environment until the fuel is completely burned in the gas turbine. The complex has an extremely low level of exhaust emissions, corresponding to the highest requirements of the European Union and the USA. The complex is completely free of water and soil pollution.
