Thermax, a provider of engineering services to the energy and environment sectors, have signed a technology transfer license agreement with Lambion Energy Solutions, a German engineering company with capabilities in converting waste to energy.

The technology transfer will provide Thermax with high efficiency combustion systems for using biomass, high in moisture content, for energy generation. They will be integrated in its boilers and heaters with heat output ranging from 4MW to 30MW.

Under the licensing agreement valid for a period of five years, a dedicated team from Thermax will work with Lambion to absorb and deploy this technology.

Thermax will have an exclusive license to market heating systems, equipped with the new technology in India and SAARC countries, South East Asia, Middle East and Africa.

According to Thermax, the new agreement with Lambion and subsequent technology ugradation will equip the company with advanced systems to provide industry eco-friendly ways of extracting energy from waste.

In addition, Thermax will also gain the expertise to match European and American competitors in biomass fired energy systems in Indian and select overseas markets.

For Lambion, the partnership offers an opportunity to promote its expertise in new markets.

Axel Lambion, managing director of Lambion, said: “We are confident that our proven technology will help harness renewable energy from diverse types of biomass in India.”
