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.
Dürr MEGTEC’s industry-leading experience in air handling, drying, heating, cooling, process and combustion control can help improve the operating efficiency of your facility and maximize the performance of your equipment. By analyzing current process energy usage, we can offer solutions to reduce your energy consumption.
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.
Reduction of perating costs: The increased energy costs over the last years have made investments towards heat recovery solutions not only cost effective but profitable. With the support and input of our employees and our technical know how, are improvements and solutions concerning heat recovery become feasible.
While mechanical pulp has many benefits (yield and optical qualities being at the top), as energy costs rise, the competitiveness of mechanical fibers declines. You can benefit from new ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER technologies that produce mechanical pulp of high quality at significant reductions in energy consumption.
Alternative electricity generation with low CO2 impact is almost exclusively associated with solar and wind energy. Both energy sources have the disadvantage that supply is completely independent of demand. The low carbon energy landscape will alter greatly with the introduction of small scale (micro) CHP systems. These systems can kick-in when solar and wind are not adequate. Micro-CHP is the real on-demand, high efficiency, low carbon building block that will be the ideal supplement for wind and solar.
Waste heat is found in virtually all forms of energy production as well as in motorized verhicles. It is becoming an extremely important and efficient way of generating electricity. Due to rising energy costs and legal requirements for reductions in CO2 emissions there is a high demand for energy efficient waste recovery systems.
Using a Green Turbine in a hybrid truck or a hydrogen/fuel cell truck, can improve fuel efficiency with another 25%. Hybrid trucks with Green Turbine can extend their range by 20% by capturing waste heat from engine exhaust and converting it to electricity. In hybrid or fuel cell trucks about 10% of the waste heat can be converted to electricity. As waste heat is about 75% of the total energy input of a truck, this 10% is substantial.
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.
Thermal Energy International has helped several well-known pharmaceutical companies in North America and Europe reduce their energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions. Our FLU-ACE heat recovery system recycles the heat normally lost through the boiler flue gas exhaust – reducing energy consumption on most boilers by 10% to 20%.
The ORCAN technologies focus on a wide range of the ORC systems, from the smallest ones (5 kW) up to bigger ORC systems producing 300 kW of electricity. Another flagship of this company includes zero energy consumption coolers - eCoolers. Tens of installations of these units all over Europe are evidence of first-rate quality of German technology. The supplier of expanders for ORC is the company Bitzer – the world number one in the field of producers of compressors.
Thermal Energy’s GEM steam traps and FLU-ACE heat recovery technologies have wide applications in the food and beverage industry. From breweries and bottling operations, to food processing, packaging, and other food and beverage operations, we can help you reduce your energy costs while lowering your greenhouse gas emissions.
We help hospitals save money by reducing their fuel bills while also lowering their greenhouse gas emissions. Our proven solutions can increase the efficiency of your heating and steam system to as much as 95% with typical project paybacks (for our combined technologies) within three to five years.
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...
Flared gases and NGLs can be re-purposed as fuel for flex-fuel, low-emissions LPP Combustion Power Systems, lowering production costs, reducing logistical burdens, and addressing Gas Capture Plan and other compliance issues with flaring and emissions. The ‘Lean, Pre-mixed, Pre-vaporized’ (LPP) equipment enables clean combustion of liquid fuels in gas turbines and industrial boilers and burners. In addition to flare-gas NGLs, the LPP Combustion Oilfield Power System also operates on a variety of...
They are classic heat exchangers when the technology requires for its operation to frustrate a certain amount of heat in these air exchangers. Classic installations are such that for heat frustration they use fans with high own consumption of electric energy for feeding fans. Thereby the circuit is cooled down by the given delta t. The principle of our coolers is the same, only with that difference that we use the input energy of heat just for the production of electric energy feeding fans of the cooler. Not by...
Whether providing high-efficiency, low emissions auxiliary boilers to coal or otherwise fired power plants across the United States, or heat recovery steam generators to natural gas fired turbine plants you will find Superior Boilers serving the needs of power generation customers for years to come.
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.
