The development of technological solutions
Prototyping and experimental equipment
The creation of prototypes and experimental equipment
RES has always pondered, designed, created and fine-tuned equipment and machinery previously unseen on the market, in response to specific requirements of innovative research projects or because they were unavailable in the sizes required for experimentation underway. Years of experimentation and honing of creative, design and installation skills, has led to a veritable service which is proposed to everyone who comes to us with a need or wish to resolve issues with a partner capable of developing equipment or systems ideal for obtaining desired results.
For a better idea, here are some examples of machinery and equipment created specially by RES in response to requirements for specific projects:
- The RES Pilot Plant was created in response to a need to check innovative technological ideas developed by the cooperative's founding shareholders. They completed it before even founding RES.
- Later, the RES Laboratory Fermenter was created, in response to a need to carry out biomethanation tests and provide a service for customers who needed to construct or manage biogas plants. It was developed based on internal specifications so that it could treat more material compared to standard equipment, and yield more reliable results for process control purposes.
- An extrusion press had to be built to divide the humid fraction from non-organic and fibrous waste, in order to carry out FORSU pre-treatment, to be sent to the RES Pilot Plant during experimentation for the FORBIOGAS project.
- 5 different prototypes were developed to carry out the first pyrolysis batch tests, later developed into the pyrolyser which is currently supplied.
