  • What is energy recovery?

    Processes like incineration and anaerobic digestion not only provide sources of energy, but they also reduce waste volume The term “energy recovery” often is applied only to a narrow number of methods for converting wastes into energy, when in fact it applies to a broad range of technologies used to create heat, electricity, or fuel. Energy recovery gives ...

  • Efficient steam production in paper mills

    The paper and pulp industry is an energy and emission intensive industry. Steam is an essential part of the paper making process with steam boilers, steam distribution systems and other processes accounting for a large percentage of a paper mill’s energy costs. Useful energy is often lost from boilers and process equipment such as heat exchangers, dryers, evaporators etc, as well as from ...

  • Study of available exhaust gas heat recovery technologies for HD diesel engine applications

    Diesel engines reject a considerable amount of energy to the ambience through the exhaust gas. Significant reduction of engine brake-specific fuel consumption (bsfc) could be attained by recovering a significant part of exhaust gas heat. Various techniques have been proposed in the past to recover exhaust energy: mechanical, electrical turbocompounding and Rankine Bottoming Cycles. In the present ...

Even they can be used as a power plant boiler startup. SZS series oil & gas boilers are ...


  • Case study - Maximizing heat recovery from your oxidizer and reducing operating costs

    More and more, companies operating air pollution control equipment today realize that the initial capital cost of an oxidizer system can be rapidly eclipsed by continued operating expenses if careful attention is not periodically given to the system. Below are ten tips to ensure your oxidizer is operating at peak performance. The first five tips focus on parameters end-users should know about ...

  • Elantas enjoys significant steam savings with GEM

    Thermal Energy International Inc. is pleased to announce that ELANTAS Deatech S.r.l, a member of the global specialty chemical group Altana AG, and a leading producer of insulating materials for the electrical and electronics industry, has revealed that it is achieving significant savings in steam consumption at its site in Ascoli Piceno, Italy following the installation of Thermal Energy ...

  • Combined Heat and Power (CHP) essentials

    'CHP essentials' introduces the concept of power and heat 'production possibility sets', starting at the cradle of CHP, i.e., the thermal power generation plant. The latter always occasions 'fatal' heat that is either recovered (the 'merit' of CHP) or wasted (condensing). This split paves the way to defining the production possibility sets of CHP plants, shown for steam turbines, internal ...

  • Case study - Oxidizer energy recovery options

    Overview The mainstream media today is full of allusions to energy awareness and conservation. Just as visible these days are media references to astronomical dollar figures that can boggle the mind. This article does not seek to break out of that mold, but rather to conform to it – as Oxidizer Stack Heat Recovery offers a tremendous opportunity for both energy conservation and ...

  • Comparative study of steam injection effects on operation of gas turbine cycles

    In the present work, gas turbine cycles are modified with steam injection between the combustion chamber exit and the gas turbine inlet. Heat recovery steam generators, utilising the exhaust gases, provide these cycles with the injected steam at saturated vapour. The irreversibility of the different composing units of the cycles and the variation of gas properties owing to steam injection as well ...

  • Quantifying Combined Heat and Power (CHP) activity

    In CHP plants without heat rejection facilities power, output is complementary to the recovery of heat, and all activity is cogeneration. CHP plants with heat rejection facilities can operate a mix of cogeneration and condensing activities. Quantifying the energy flows of both activities properly requires knowledge of the design power-to-heat ratios of the CHP processes (steam and gas turbines, ...

  • Opening markets for CSP – the industrial heat application

    Heavy industry can be a viable secondary market today for CSP producers, but questions remain on whether start-up costs are justifiable for industrial users, and how reliable CSP can be for processes that can't pace production by the sun. Solar thermal heat implies steam, and industries that need steam include refining, food processing, wood-working, desalination and chemicals, among others. ...
