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.
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.
A nuclear reactor produces and controls the release of energy from splitting the atoms of certain elements. The energy released from continuous fission of the atoms of the fuel is utilized as heat in either a gas or water to produce steam. The steam is used to drive the turbines that drive electricity generators. Both boiling water reactors (BWR) and pressurized water reactors (PWR) require secondary separation or “steam drying” as the final stage of water separation within the reactors. In addition,...
You are a farmer/entrepreneur and would like to make money from generating electricity and heat? Then you have come to the right place. Within just a few years Dreyer & Bosse Kraftwerke GmbH have advanced to become one of the leading manufacturers of combined heat and power stations on biogas basis - we have available a complete product portfolio for energy applications of biogases or biomethane.
Geothermal power plants use heat from production wells to drive turbines to make power. CSP augments the heat from the wells to boost power production. Hyperlight uses the lowest cost materials, manufacturing method, and installation technique of any CSP technology yet deployed for this purpose.
Körting condensers, steam jet and water jet vacuum ejectors are established components in steam power plants. There have been innovative developments over the past decades and continously upgraded aggregates to lower energy consumption by optimising heat revovery in power stations.
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...
Small rural communities or work camps are ideal applications for the Borealis wood power plant. Its application fit is best when the heat can be used to support a micro-heating-network for 25 homes or fewer in conjunction with a community centre as base load. Power needs must exceed the 45 kWh or it can be sold to the grid.
With large assembly halls to heat and very strict temperature- and humidity reqirements for their painting lines, car assembly facilities are big consumers of power and thermal energy. VYNCKE designs and builds reliable biomass energy solutions capable of not only delivering enough heat to keep assembly halls and offices warm but also guarrantee the required steadiness and accuracy in heat flow needed for the critical painting process. Hot water or superheated water is used to regulate the humidity and temperature...
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Turboden ORC can produce electricity by recovering heat from industrial processes, reciprocating engines and gas turbines. The power of Turboden units generally ranges between 200 kW and 15 MW electric.
Food waste in general has a high energy density. This results in high yields when producing biogas through anaerobic treatment. Biogas is a very flexible energy product with proven capabilities in the power, transportation, and heat demanding sectors. In this sector, anaerobic digestion offers significant cost advantages over traditional disposal methods. By upgrading the biogas into natural gas using a DMT Environmental Technology system, a solid business case with an interesting return on investment is assured.
District heating is a growing industry and can supply an entire city with energy. District heating can also be produced on a small scale in smaller power plants, so-called local heating networks. Future energy prices are a big uncertainty factor for today’s energy producers, particularly as customers are becoming increasingly environmentally aware. Solar collectors that concentrate the sunlight provide a lot of advantages for the purchaser. Read more about our products and discover how you can profit from...
