Micronex Systems Inc. is involved in many projects in the forest, pulp and paper, agriculture, and recycling industries in Canada, USA, Mexico, Brazil, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Poland and other countries around the world.
Examples of our projects
Okinawa, Japan – Waste Wood to Electricity
The Okinawa Electric Power Company selected three KDS Micronex™ to process 20,000 tons of wood waste for electricity production.
The plant creates pellets from the fine, dry powder produced by the KDS Micronex and uses the pellets as a coal replacement.
Malaysia – Palm Date Empty Fruit Bunches to Electricity
A major breakthrough in the Palm Oil Industry is the effective disintegration of palm date empty fruit bunches (EFB) into as small as 1mm (.04in) fiber particles while at the same time drying to a moisture content of below 15%.
The resulting powder is pelletized and used for electricity production, offsetting the need for external power. Excess power is sold into the local grid.
Latvia – Algae to Fertilizer
Eco-Organic is a manufacturer of organic soil conditioners and fertilizers made from geological deposits. These deposits originate from water plants and residues of animal origin in combination with fragments of higher plant tissue, pollen, sand, clay, peat and various trace minerals.
The KDS Micronex produces a clean dry powder from the moisture-laden peat and algae, greatly enhancing the quality and efficiency of the operation.
Hong Kong – Wastewater Treatment
Our customer in Hong Kong selected the KDS Micronex to dry sludge from a municipal wastewater treatment plant because of its low-power consumption and low investment cost.
As a result, the KDS Micronex dries, disinfects, and reduces material size while at the same time saving energy costs, reducing emissions, and the associated environmental effects. It dries sludge from 60-80% moisture content to a dry powder with 10-20% moisture. In addition, the resulting powder is nearly 100% pathogen free.
- Energy Saving
- Small total investment
- Small footprint
- High safety performance
- Diversity in dry mud
- Simplify flue gas treatment
New York – Paper Mill Sludge to Fiber Clay Pellets, Dairy Farm Bedding, and other industrial materials
Our customer in New York City uses the KDS Micronex to efficiently dry and grind paper mill sludge to produce a variety of commercial products, including dairy farm bedding, hydromulch, drilling mud, lost circulation materials, and fiber clay pellets.
Mexico – Food Processing
Our customer in Mexico uses the KDS Micronex to process corn maize (nixtamalization) to prepare foods like tortillas that are both more flavorful and nutritious.
Quebec – Hen Manure Processing to Fertilizer
Our customer in Quebec uses the KDS Micronex to produce dry, nearly pathogen-free hen manure fertilizer that meets their organic farmers’ needs. In addition to hen manure fertilizers, they have expanded their operation to include processing chicken and turkey manures to fertilizer. Their factory, which can produce up to 20,000 tons of pellets per year, is also processing other raw materials into pellets, such as bark and straw.
