Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
For wind resource assessment campaigns in regions with long and cold winters, special measurement systems have to be designed. The challenges of cold climate regions should never be underestimated. Particularly icing is a problem. The met mast construction and the installed sensors have to be chosen carefully. The instruments have to be properly heated by a reliable power system.
With our long-term experience in wind measurement and our local installation partners we can offer complete measurement systems robust...
Reduction of perating costs: The increased energy costs over the last years have made investments towards heat recovery solutions not only cost effective but profitable. With the support and input of our employees and our technical know how, are improvements and solutions concerning heat recovery become feasible.
Processes that create a synthetic gas (syn gas) in a gasification process for waste reduction, electricity generation, or steam production (CHP – combined heat and power processes) – commonly benefit from custom heat recovery systems.
The range of supply of biogas to electricity solutions is from 10 kW to 1 MW. All the components of the solution are provided with matching capacities.
It comprises the biogas digester system of the desired capacity, gas storage, biogas cleaning system to get rid of H2S from the gas, and the biogas genset. In the digester system, one may have a pre-digester or a feed mixing chamber or both. On the post-digester side, liquid from the slurry is separated and is recycled for feed preparation. It reduces the overall...
Since 1988, Delta Hydronics has designed and installed numerous water heating and chilling solutions for life support systems using small equipment skid packages as well as large centralized mechanical systems for grow-out operations with mutiple heat exchangers and temperature requirements.

When water temperature is critical for sustained growth and general health of commercial aquaculture...
The construction building wall makes the most significant contribution to the reduction of building energy consumption. The total thermal losses of building constructions strongly depends on the environmental conditions (Location) and building construction (Material). On site measurements are possible with EKO thin film heat flow sensors which can be integrated with building walls. Evaluation of heat flow and thermal losses is inevitable during building design and engineering of energy-efficient floor heating...
Combining highly-experienced industry experts and a state-of-the-art research center, EVAPCO is constantly developing next generation technology for wet cooling tower systems, dry air-cooled steam condensing, and hybrid systems.
Thermal Energy International has helped several well-known pharmaceutical companies in North America and Europe reduce their energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions. Our FLU-ACE heat recovery system recycles the heat normally lost through the boiler flue gas exhaust – reducing energy consumption on most boilers by 10% to 20%.
PROJECT OVERVIEW: Large residential and commercial project in London, overlooking the Thames. A 2.9MW cooling and heating aquifer thermal energy storage system for five mixed-use buildings including over 200 luxury apartments.
Collect valuable biogas from anaerobic digestion systems with a GTI gas collection cover. In waste-to-energy projects, the collected biogas can be used as a renewable fuel to generate process heat or electricity, helping to offset energy costs.
Farming operations that require heat also benefit from the CHP system. The return on investment will vary dependent on whether there is low or no cost access to wood chips and whether the 45 kWh of power can be fully utilized on site or, if not, what rate the power can be sold to the grid.
We help hospitals save money by reducing their fuel bills while also lowering their greenhouse gas emissions. Our proven solutions can increase the efficiency of your heating and steam system to as much as 95% with typical project paybacks (for our combined technologies) within three to five years.
Cocoa processing plants are often located in remote areas with little or no access to fossil fuels. The cocoa shells represent up to 10 % of the processing capacity of a typical plant, and often have no market value. VYNCKE offers combustion systems to convert the cocoa shells into a reliable supply of steam for the sterilization, roasting and grinding process. Our systems effectively address the challenges of cocoa shells as a boiler fuel, and even allow co-generation (combined heat and power supply).
Turboden units allow to convert the heat collected by solar collectors into electricity through an efficient thermodynamic cycle. Concentrating Solar Power systems with Turboden ORC can be cost-effective from 200 kW electric, depending on the irradiation of the installation site.
Is it suitable for you?
Concentrating solar collector field from 2 ha

This solution comprises a Biogas Digester of desired capacity working with specific substrate as input. It may or may not have H2S scrubbing system, depending on the quantity of H2S in the biogas and the requirement by the customer for cleaning it. As the heating value of biogas is almost half that of cooking LPG, specially designed biogas burners are provided to improve cooking speed. Depending on the demand by the customer, a blower to increase gas pressure may be employed.
Any company that has a need for both heat and power is an ideal fit for the Borealis wood power system, especially if located in a rural setting where energy costs are high. The application requirement must be for the full 45 kWh of power for immediate use. If power requirement is not that high, then this energy can be sold to the regional power grid often at preferred rates. Options for off-grid solutions are being reviewed.
