Lakson develops technological solutions that are suited to many activities; for more details, consult a particular area of interest below:

  • Biomass cogeneration: solutions to combine the production of heat and electricity, using biomass, in a CHP plant.
  • Waste to Energy: including sorting, conditioning, combustion, and power generation.
  • Biogas Purification: maximizing Methane extraction and CO hydrogenation

  • Biogas to H2 Production: Lakson developed its own system maximizing H2 generation and transformation.

  • Conditioning systems for biomass: solutions to grind and dry raw biomass by-products into a useful, value-added bio-fuel.
  • Conditioning systems for industrial and municipal sludge: solutions to treat and dewater sludge effluent from wastewater treatment plants, pulp & paper mills, etc.
  • Biomass combustion systems: solutions to burn biomass efficiently in a combustion process.
  • Biomass gasification systems: solutions to produce synthetic gas from biomass, for direct combustion in a gas burner.

Waste Transformation into useful products

Lakson has been assisting customers to transform their waste materials and process by-products into value-added products for several years.

Instead of material currently going to land-filling, or a process by-product that goes to waste that is not usable in its current form, Lakson can develop a process around the intended goal to transform the raw material into a value-added product.

Lakson has been developing innovative processes and testing our customer material in order to determine the feasibility of the intended process and simulate commercial process conditions.

We have built up data gathered during testing to develop the process and engineer and select adequate equipment needed to carry out the process.

Our various process experts relate a variety of approaches and methodologies to transform waste material or process by-products.

Our intervention can include conditioning, dewatering, agglomeration, granulation, drying, heat processing, water treatment, or a combination of these techniques.

Our expertise is geared to developing:

  •  Increase the value of material through improved characteristics
  • Added value of material through conditioning and refinement
  • Recover valuable materials from valueless waste
  • Transformation of product from a waste or process by-product

Lakson confronted in some transformations sludges which are transformed into organic-based fertilizers, clays and sawdust into cat litter, fuel pellets from petroleum coke dust, and recovering in some cases valuable metal from spent batteries.
