Steel structure of coal storage yard of Tuoketuo Power Plant
The prestressed space truss project of the large-span coal yard closed steel structure project. The overall width of the coal yard is 224.5 meters, of which the structural span is 222 meters, the structural length is 467 meters, and the structural height is 62.5 meters, with a total area of 104,000 square meters. According to the structural characteristics and the site environment, careful ...
Improved efficiency of blast furnace - Optimizing PCI applications with mass flow measurement
Application The PCI technology (Pulverized Coal Injection), was designed to dose and control the amount of coal injected into blast furnaces, via the hot blast tuyeres. Modern PCI plant designs use dens phase conveying systems to transport pulverized coal from the storage area to the blast furnace, reducing nitrogen consumption, abrasion and stabilizing coal flow. With optimal coal injection, the ...
Capturing King Coal: Deploying carbon capture and storage in the US at scale
Climate change is no longer simply an environmental issue. It is rapidly becoming one of the defining forces of economic development in the 21st century. It will shape investment, technology deployment, and human development around the world, and no sector will be more profoundly affected than energy. Given the constraints that climate impacts bring, thriving in the evolving global energy market ...
National implementation of carbon capture and storage: The case of Germany
As Germany is – and will remain for the immediate future – dependent on coal for generating power and ensuring energy supply, the German Government and various representatives from the private sector are currently assessing and promoting so called “Clean Coal” technologies, such as Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Scientific research and industrial pilot projects for capturing and storing carbon ...
AMETEK Land - World Coal - Beat the Heat
Between the time a piece of coal is dug out of the ground and is burned in a power plant boiler, it has been through many stages of transportation and storage. One of the advantages of coal as a fuel for power generation is the ability to store substantial quantities on site. This provides a strategic buffer of at least one month's fuel supply, which can be valuable if there is a short- or ...
Carbon capture and storage: settling the German coal vs. climate change dispute?
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an innovation that promises to enable the low Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions coal power station. However, the technology is still under development and issues such as economic viability, environmental safety, public acceptance and system integration remain unresolved at present. We analyse the viewpoints and strategies of major political and economic actors ...
The awkward, realistic choices on low carbon electricity
We must be guided by engineering reality, costs and markets, not emotion. Viewpoint from James Smith, Chairman, Carbon Trust As the public debate on securing our future energy needs continues to heat up, one thing is certain. Kicking the fossil fuel habit will be hard. Over two billion people in the developing world need more energy. Even with major improvements in energy efficiency and huge ...

Upcoming EU electricity and gas directives should be changed to support EU`s new energy and climate policies
It is important that the coming electricity and gas market directives ensures that renewable energy is given priority in the electricity and gas networks. This is both important when the energy is sold from local producers to the network and when the network is used for transport of energy from a renewable energy production unit to its owners. It applies to both electricity and gas networks, and ...
Wind & solar energy and nature conservation
Climate change and the degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity cannot be solved in isolation. Land and marine ecosystems play a crucial role in the climate system, capturing roughly half of carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities (UNEP, 2009). Protecting biodiversity preserves ecosystem services that are important for regulating the climate and helping us to adapt to the impacts ...
