ISOTHERM Pwr ® Flameless Oxy-Combustion Technology produces low-cost energy (steam and electricity) by flexible use of low ranking fuels such as waste, heavy oils, pet coke, and coal; this technology is so advanced as to ensure, for any fuel/material used, a quality of emissions far than higher than what is required by the strictest international environmental regulations. ISOTHERM Pwr ® allows to treat, even simultaneously, fuels and waste having completely different characteristics; if applied to the treatment of industrial waste, liquid and solid, it can treat the most dangerous products from industry, and also harmful waste accumulated in dumps over decades.
If applied to the treatment of municipal waste, it can ensure the treatment of any residual waste that has no other industrial economic reuse.
If applied to coal combustion, ISOTHERM Pwr ® Flameless Oxy-Combustion Technology allows the use of standard and low ranking coal, normally not used by power plants, ensuring in both cases higher levels of environmental respect than “clean coal” existing technologies and allowing the production of fumes consisting of concentrated carbon dioxide ready for industrial reuse or confinement.
As part of Sofinter Group, which is one of the few global players in the energy field with prestigious brands (Ansaldo Caldaie, Macchi Boilers), ITEA spa is dedicated to the development and business of plants based on ISOTHERM Pwr ® “Flameless” Oxy-Combustion Technology. Within Sofinter Group, Itea’s mission is to develop and supply customers with the most advanced technological solutions based on ISOTHERM Pwr ® Technology, meeting environmental requisitions.
This Technology enables both treatment and energy recovery of a wide range of law-rank fuels and/or materials having a negative environmental impact (industrial waste, municipal solid waste, contaminated soils), by ensuring quality of emissions above the standards set by current regulations; the flexibility of ISOTHERM Pwr ® Technology allows to extend the application to new fuels (contaminated gases, law-rank coal not used by industry, heavy residue oil) in the context of clean energy and “zero emission”.
Isotherm Pwr Flameless Oxy-combustion technology is showing a quantum leap advancement towards zero-emissions in combustion processes. Therefore it provides, along with other economical advantages, an environmental advantage which can be summarized in the following 4 points:
- contaminants in gaseous emissions close to zero and, for the most significant components in the field of healthcare, a few orders of magnitude lower than the current European standards
- incombustible ash in glassy structure, totally inert, without the presence of carbon, usable for industrial purposes
- for the same capacity, much smaller dimensions of traditional plants
- possibilities of use of the fumes, which essentially consist of CO2, with consequent elimination of the chimney; for applications of small-scale, CO2 can be used for industrial purposes, for large scale applications, the CO2 can be used for EOR (enhanced Oil Recovery) or CCS (carbon capture & sequestration).
What is important to emphasize is that the extreme cleaning of the fumes is not due to complex processes for cleaning and filtering of the fumes produced (as occurs in traditional technologies), but to the actual combustion process that is able to oxidize in a very more effective way the fuel, already in the process of combustion avoiding the creation of contaminants.
