  • Plastics and Process Engineered Fuel (PEF): an Overview

    Scrap plastics and paper can be made into process engineered fuel (PEF) for co-firing in existing solid fuel boilers. PEF systems offer the opportunity to divert significant amounts of materials from disposal while also conserving fossil fuel resources. PEF is a manufactured product produced in either shredded (fluff) or densified form and has predictable combustion characteristics. PEF prices, ...


  • Official UK statistics show gradual move to low-carbon economy

    Recent official statistics show that the UK is actually moving into a low-carbon, energy-efficient economy, although the speed of progress may be considerably less than green campaigners would wish for. The Department of Energy and Climate Change's provisional monthly energy statistics for the first quarter of 2014 found that, compared with the same period in 2013: ...


  • EfW at Sakra Jurong Island, Singapore - Case study

  • Treatment of ship sludge oil using a plasma arc waste Destruction system (PAWDS)

    The Plasma Arc Waste Destruction system (PAWDS) uses a plasma torch to quickly gasify solid  waste on board ships. Developed under the support of the US Navy, this compact one deck system has been in commercial operation on board a cruise ship for more than three years. With the support of Carnival Cruise Lines and the National Research Council of Canada, the PAWDS was recently modified in ...

  • FTIR gas analyzer supports carbon capture research - Case study

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...
