Optimized heat transfer solutions to meet emission reduction requirements

Vertical plate technology helps plants reduce carbon footprints 

Author: Jean-Marc Reichling

Evolving environmental considerations are placing newfound pressure on bulk solid processors to improve operational efficiencies while simultaneously reducing their collective carbon footprint. 

INFOVRAC Sept 2020 cover

Over the past decade, jurisdictions around the world have implemented increasingly stringent NOx reduction targets, as well as limitations on solid particles being released into the environment. This is requiring industry to pay more attention to in-stack emissions than ever before.

The path to increased sustainability has, likewise, renewed the need to reduce the amount of energy consumed per tonne of product produced. This makes sense given that any conversation revolving around carbon reduction leads back to the energy sources that keep today’s processing plants running. Most of the carbon monoxide and dioxide that is emitted from stacks come from the use of hydrocarbon energy resources. A reduction in energy consumption therefore makes it possible to reduce the amount of gC02/kWh being emitted by a plant.

Advances in vertical heat transfer technology for bulk solids are providing operators with efficient heat transfer solutions that reduce energy consumption and virtually eliminate emissions.  

In the September 2020 issue of Infovrac magazine, Jean-Marc Reichling, Global Sales Director at Solex Thermal Science, discusses more about how the technology work, its growing applications and recent innovations that have led to waste heat recovery options.
