For many years, sugar mills have burned bagasse, the fibrous byproduct of the processing of sugarcane, using special boilers that produce the steam needed to help break down the sugar cane.
As the cost of powering this equipment by burning fossil fuels has steadily risen, the use of biofuel cogeneration as a source of power production has become more prevalent. Many sugar mills have updated their bagasse-fired boilers and linked them to generators that produce electricity used to power the mill’s operations...
Gasification and synthetic gas production from various waste products are becoming increasingly important energy recovery technologies. Often, the synthetic gas contains various hazardous contaminants including H2S, HCl and other acids, heavy metals, and tars. The gas requires cleaning before it is introduced in the engine or boiler. Most of these processes generate significant concentration of tars. The tars can vary from very low molecular weight to large and complex chains.
Cleaner burning than other fossil fuels, the combustion of natural gas produces negligible amounts of sulfur, mercury, and particulates. However, natural gas does produce nitrogen oxides (NOx), which contributes to smog.
Manufacturing TFT/LCD displays requires waste gas treatment as well. Processes that produce large scale Thinfilm Transistors (TFT) on glass substrates, for instance, use Chemical Vapour Deposition – CVD – to separate the thin films onto the material. The process requires cleaning the process chamber periodically and usually employs etching with NF3. Etching of the separated thin films typically utilises CF4, SF6 and chlorinated gases, which release large amounts of waste gas mixtures.
Compressor stations are located at intervals of every 40-70 miles along a gas pipeline to compress the gas to a specified pressure, thereby allowing it to continue traveling along the pipeline to its destination. Compressor stations require filter separators that remove liquids, dirt, particles, and other impurities from the natural gas, and CECO offers considerable expertise at separation for gas pipeline compressor stations.
During the many years that we have worked together with the companies in the precipitator frontline, we have had the possibility to gain experience how to develop and produce customer specified products for cleaning of combustion gas. We can give advice regarding design, dimension, and choice of material. We have modern and efficient machinery for production of emitting electrodes and bag cages. A thorough guidance of quality is a must to be able to meet the customer`s demand. Our resources and production enables...
Within the nuclear industry there are ongoing operational challenges and potential hazards associated with environmental emissions and the protection of the workforce, such as high temperatures, high radioactivity, high solids loads and chemically aggressive environments. Therefore the industry demands exceptional levels of technical expertise and quality, in conjunction with specific skills to solve many of its most intractable problems.
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...
The construction of coal and natural gas power stations is continuing at a steady rate along with older power stations being retrofitted with more effective flue gas cleaning systems. Both the community and environmental protection authorities are paying closer attention to both emission and ambient concentrations around power stations.
