Reliable Shredding Technology for Refuse Derived Fuels (RDF)

by UNTHA Shredding Technology     based in Kuchl, AUSTRIA

Our shredding solutions enable you to optimally recycle waste into substitute fuels / alternative fuels and ensure high quality by producing a homogeneous granulate free of foreign objects. The goal of recycling is to use the valuable energy contained in the waste and to substitute the use of fossil fuels. During the recycling process the portions with a high calorific value are separated from the commercial and industrial waste and turned into a marketable product. Depending on the calorific value and the granular size, these fuels are used in fluidised bed combustion, cement plants and substitute fuel power plants.

Water treatment for power plants

by De Nora Water Technologies     based in Colmar, PENNSYLVANIA (USA)

The process of electricity generation from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is water-intensive. Between 40-50% of all water abstracted and used in developed countries is used in the generation of electricity. Thus, a reliable, abundant and predictable source of raw water supply to a power plant is a critical factor in site selection. Water supplies are required to provide various process waters for the following essential main purposes such as make-up water, cooling water for steam turbine condensers, and auxiliary plant cooling water.

The primary application of modern water treatment technology is to maintain the integrity and performance of the power plant. Critical plant applications have water purity or conditioning requirements that must be adhered to for safe, reliable and efficient power generation.

Experience has shown that integration of water technology treatments with power plant design can be very important in reducing operational problems and component failures 

At power plant worldwide there are increasing limitations on water availability and environmental restrictions on discharges. This is expected to promote measures for water conservation and to have an increasing influence on water treatment decisions. At power plant, the recycling of internal wastewater streams can extend from the recovery of individual high-quality waste streams, which can be reused either directly or after only limited treatment, through to the development of fully integrated water/wastewater treatment systems for zero liquid discharge. However, the application of reuse schemes requires site-specific assessment, as not all waters may be viable options for recovery.

Industrial air pollution control for the oil and gas

by Chemisch Thermische Prozesstechnik GmbH / CTP Air Pollution Control     based in Graz, AUSTRIA

Few industries attract the attention of the public as does the oil & gas industry with its related strategic products (basic materials for the chemical, pharmaceutical, varnish and cosmetics industries). The bringing of oil and gas from their original sources to the consumer, into their final forms, represents one of the most complex chains in the quest to add value to raw materials.

Sustainable solutions for oil & gas industry

by thinkstep     based in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, GERMANY

Protecting Earth’s environment is becoming increasingly difficult as the development of emerging economies and industrial growth continue to accelerate and draw more demand for energy resources. At the same time increased legislation, consumer preference for greener energy and competition increasingly drive the need for more sustainable extraction, processing, transport and use of conventional energy resources. None more so is this true than for the Oil and Gas producers who must now develop strategies and practices to enhance their sustainability performance, economic position and social standing.

Combustion measurement for engines

by Dantec Dynamics     based in Skovlunde, DENMARK

Combustion processes occur in many modern technologies such as power production, heating, automotive and aircraft engines and even explosion research.

The application areas range from fuel injection and mixing and flow velocity information to measurements of combustion species and soot concentration.

Because of the impact on the global climate and the limited resources of fossil fuels, the importance of these applications is increasing, especially with respect to performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

Methane Sensing for Coal Mining

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Application: The majority (around 60%) of the coal seams currently being extracted worldwide are so far underground that open cast mining cannot take place and, therefore, underground mining techniques need to be used. Consequently, workers have to enter and work in confined spaces. One of the major problems that this creates is the dangers from Methane (CH4) gas which occurs in Mine gas.

Coating and Laminating

by Babcock & Wilcox MEGTEC     based in De Pere, WISCONSIN (USA)

MEGTEC’s experience and application know-how are at your command for tough drying and web handling applications such as slow-drying coatings and materials or thin film coating and laminating. Dryers can be equipped with a wide variety of nozzle configurations ranging from simple slot nozzles to sophisticated Coanda-style air bars and patented air foil systems. A full range of heat sources are available including steam, direct and indirect gas-fired, thermal oil, electric, hot water and IR. In addition, the air handling systems can be integrated into the dryer enclosure or stand-alone for remote installation. When the process requires pollution control systems for solvent-based applications, MEGTEC also offers regenerative thermal oxidizers, solvent recovery, distillation and purification systems. MEGTEC also offers waste heat recovery packages to “close the energy loop” between pollution controls and the process, in order to reduce production costs and increase customer profits

Air pollution control for the coal-bed methane abatement industry

by Catalytic Products International (CPI)     based in Lake Zurich, ILLINOIS (USA)

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted in a number of ways. It is emitted naturally and through human activities like the burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is generated as a by-product of the combustion of fossil fuels or the burning of vegetable matter, among other chemical processes. Small amounts of carbon dioxide are emitted from volcanoes and other geothermal processes.

Industrial briquette presses for Metal briquetting

by WEIMA     based in Ilsfeld, GERMANY

Volume reduction and easy processing of metal briquettes is plain to see – they are easier to store, transport and a more convenient format for resale. But, the briquetting process also offers the opportunity to reclaim expensive coolant, residual oils and emulsions allowing reintroduction into the production cooling and lubrication circuit. During the reprocessing function the weight of the briquette allows it to sink thereby producing less slag and burn-off.
