SophSys Bv is proud to be a salespartner for Scheper&Co. this innovative company specializes on waste solutions using geothermal pressure.


Today we can build a cleaner community, by converting wastes into renewable, profitable products, such as bio‐fuels, ethanol, butanol, methane, and yeast protein. For this we use biomaterials/ fibres which are not suitable for consumption. In these fibre materials lignin closes the C5 (hemicellulose) and C6 (cellulose). These C5 and C6 (sugars) are located in; inter alia, wood, paper, sheet, manure, municipal waste types, etc. To convert C5 and C6 sugars, the lignin must be cracked. High pressure and high temperature can crack these lignin. The GPV process is highly exothermic, temperatures quickly rises up to 235+ Celsius and the Vessel is freely hanging inside an external shaft under vacuum seal at depths of 750 metre below surface. The challenge, develop a reactor and GPV which is suitable for the required specified conditions. The main facing challenges; vertical straight installed reactor, sustainable and high quality materials that are resistant, meeting operational drilling standards and relative easy maintainable GPV installation.

Empower your process with smart designs. Scheper has a deep understanding of alternative drilling/service techniques. Combined with a background in process technology (3mE - TU) and smart ideas for the reactor design forms a solid combination, to convert this concept into an operational prototype. Together with different specialists, Scheper offered a sustainable GPV solution. (text and pictures by Scheper&Co)
