    Processing of Alternative Fuels for the energy industry

    RDF is a fuel that is normally produced from waste with high calorific value. The original waste comes from households, industry and commerce and is processed for energy extraction; it is meant for co-incineration plants and replaces standard fuels (e.g. coal) in production plants for cement, power plants or other co-incineration plants.

  • Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) & Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF)

    A full-scale Gasplasma® plant can make its own RDF from MSW/Commercial Waste. The waste is brought directly into a fuel preparation hall at the front of the building. Inside the fuel preparation hall there is industry standard equipment that can recover glass, metals and hard plastics from the wastes for recycling. The remaining waste is then dried and shredded to make a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for the Gasplasma® energy from waste process. Clients who already produce RDF may not require a fuel preparation hall. APP can design a plant without this facility, accepting the RDF directly from the client. Secondary Recovered Fuel or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is often confused with Refuse Derived Fuel because they are similar in nature. However, SRF is produced to reach a clearly defined standard such as CEN/343 ANAS whereas RDF is not.

    Measurement solution for hydrogen fuel cell testing

    As the alternatives to fossil fuels for power generation and automotive power become more widespread and preferred, so has increased the research and testing of hydrogen gas in fuel cells. The hydrogen (H2) gas used in fuel cell has to be free of impurities in order to make the fuel cell as efficient as possible and so quality thresholds have been set in legislation. Such legislation as SAE J2719 provides hydrogen fuel quality standards for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell vehicles. If impurities above these thresholds are present in the H2 fuel then there is a risk of not only making the cell inefficient, but also unrecoverable back to its peak operating voltage as the fuel cell electrode becomes poisoned.

  • Cetane Number of Diesel Fuels #3010

    The Cetane number of a diesel fuel is a measure of the ignition properties and is an important specification that must be met during fuel production. The traditional laboratory method for Cetane number determination is the knock engine method in which the fuel is burned and its combustion characteristics compared to known standards. This method is time and labor intensive, and provides no ability for real time control of production. This note discusses the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of Cetane number in diesel fuel using fiber optic-based, Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR is applied in real-time directly in process monitoring or as a laboratory procedure. In either case NIR is a time and money saving alternative to traditional methods.

  • Marine And Offshore Emissions Monitoring & Analysis

    The need to demonstrate environmental responsibility is key for today’s marine and offshore industries. Fuels and exhaust gas emissions are subject to international, regional and national controls and Charterers, as well as the public, demand high standards of performance and reliability.

  • Water removal filtration

    SAF is the key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed for the removal of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils. Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination in such situations. Its versatility gives rise to cost savings over traditional cellulosic-based absorption media, while offering full compliance potential to stringent international filtration standards – particularly in the aviation fuel and hydraulic oil markets. Applications: A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. SAF-based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels at industry leading rates. This leads to reduced fuel and oil degradation and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

  • Cloud software solutions for hospitals

    You simply can`t afford a stinging environmental rebuke from the EPA or your state regulatory agency. Not only can fines be expensive, the reputational costs are inexcusable. You`ve invested far too much building trust in your community to take such a risk. The new proposed EPA regulations mean every facility that stores fuel must conform to a higher standard of due diligence. Failure to do so can mean heavy fines, increased liability, and deep brand damage. These new regulations augment and put teeth into the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which now expands to encompass all facilities that store fuel. Compliance requires monthly visual inspections and very specific record-keeping practices, best managed on a secure cloud solution. Titan cloud software keeps hospitals and related facilities on the high road, above the risks of regulatory non-compliance. It is the leading environmental compliance management software in the industry, currently managing over 60,000 USTs (Underground Storage Tanks), as well as thousands of ASTs (Above Ground Storage Tanks). Simply subscribe to Titan, and you`re well on your way to maintaining 100% compliance.
