• Advanced recycling: from garbage to green fuel

Game-changing technology that transforms municipal solid waste into cellular-rich fibre that can be used to produce sustainable biofuels.

ECI Group has signed an agreement to license and market Wilson Bio-Chemical’s pioneering new Wilson System® of waste processing and the company’s energy dense, fully sanitized Wilson Fibre® created from municipal waste.

The patented Wilson technology – the result of decades of R&D – combined with ECI’s cutting-edge engineering expertise and global reach provides a platform for both parties to work together to fine-tune the system to meet specific environmental, market and client needs.

As well as sustainable biofuels, the Wilson System® can also produce high value chemicals and other green byproducts from municipal waste.

Technology that addresses both the waste and energy crises currently facing the world

Scalable modular design means the system can be implemented in even the largest of facilities

Opens up a circular energy economy in which waste is no longer a problem but a vital resource

Diverts 90% of incoming waste away from landfill, where it leads to the release of methane and other greenhouse gases

Large rotating steam autoclaves are used to create energy-dense biogenic fibre from MSW and commercial waste

Biofuel from municipal waste: helping to create a more sustainable future

Wilson Fibre® has a high surface area to volume ratio and medium calorific value resulting in easy conversion to power and heat via a variety of methods:
  • Co-firing with coal in existing power plant furnaces.
  • Combustion on its own as a solid fuel in conventional furnaces.
  • Gasification to produce synthesis gas (Syngas). Pyrolysis to produce hydrogen and methane.
  • Anaerobic digestion to create high yields of methane and a high quality soil enhancer.
  • Production of Bio-Butanol and Bio-Ethanol; by breaking down the predominantly cellulosic fibre to sugars we can produce bio-butanol, acetone and ethanol for traditional markets such as plastics, solvents, pharmaceuticals or for the second generation biofuels market.

Key advantages of this innovative waste disposal solution

  • Treats the biogenic content of solid waste and converts it into a cellular-rich fibre that can be used to produce high-value products such as biomass fuel pellets
  • Other materials separated by the process include clean plastics, glass, ferrous and non-ferrous recyclates
  • A major step forward that significantly furthers ECI’s commitment to providing solutions that help deliver a truly sustainable circular economy
  • Diverts waste from landfill, where it leads to the release of methane and other greenhouse gases
  • Replacing fossil fuels with biomass pellets reduces carbon emissions
  • Reduces waste by up to 70% of its original volume
  • Scalable, modular design allows system to be implemented in large-scale facilities

Improving energy security

The Wilson System® uses autoclaves to convert a variety of municipal solid waste (MSW) into renewable energy in the form of biofuels. This technique helps provide energy security by ensuring societies are no longer totally dependent on imports or fossil fuels.
