Since the recent purchase of our BCS 2000 installed in China from our original client in Wuhan by another industrial in Nanning, our team has been helping the two of them with the implementation of our technology and its adaptation to fit the needs of the new client. Indeed, unlike the original client who used the BCS 2000 to treat municipal waste in the form of sludge to produce fertilizer, the new user of the BCS 2000 desired to treat wood waste, mainly in the form of bark; a change of raw material for which some tuning had to be made to ensure the proper functioning of our system.
After having made the main adjustments, our team, with the help of the new client, conducted performance tests on the BCS 2000 using the new type of raw material. The BCS 2000 was tested with wet bark (at around 60% moisture content) and was able to treat over two Tonnes per hour of this biomass, effectively reducing its moisture content to about 25%. Additionally, the tests demonstrated that the machine was running continuously for the required period of time without defaulting. These results are more than satisfactory as we have reached and maintained the machine’s target capacity. At the client’s request, the system is now being upgraded to achieve even greater performance and reach a capacity up to 50% greater than the actual one.
In parallel, Lakson is currently in the process of developing the BCS 3000, which will have a capacity ranging from three to five Tonnes per hour depending on the condition of the material at the inlet and outlet of our system. With our newest generation of BCS around the corner, we are making the most of our opportunity to optimize the current machine and learn valuable lessons which will be implemented in the design of our newest BCS to make it reach high levels of performance. In this prospect, the latest results obtained with the BCS 2000 are extremely promising and we are extremely excited about our projects in development.
