Project references

Delivering over a decade of operational success with reference facilities with whole value chain integration from waste feedstock to product on a commercial scale.

Since 1926, 40 Winkler gasifiers have been built, 7 of which utilize the HTW® technology. The most notable references built after 1970 are listed below.

Timeline of the HTW® technology
