ENVIRO₂PRO can be used in all sorts of combined heat and power plants in order to reduce operational costs substantially. Furthermore the emissions of the plant will reduce as well.
In general we can say that the larger the engine used, the greater the positive effect from the application of ENVIRO₂PRO will be. Currently we have testing projects in Europe running. As soon as the results are available we will publish them on this website.
ENVIRO₂PRO can be used in various types of combined heat and power plants where traditional gas or biofuel fired combustion engines are used. To reduce wear and friction, ENVIRO₂PRO can be used in various gearboxes and drive-shafts and/or bearings as well.
If you are interested in discussing the possibilities of ENVIRO₂PRO, please contact us. We will then discuss the best possible practice for your business and of course our financial proposal in order to lower your operational costs.
Common CHP plant types are:
Gas turbine Combined Heat and Power plants using the waste heat in the flue gas of gas turbines. The fuel used is typically natural gas.
Gas engine Combined Heat and Power plants use a reciprocating gas engine which is generally more competitive than a gas turbine up to about 5 MW. The gaseous fuel used is normally natural gas. These plants are generally manufactured as fully packaged units that can be installed within a plant-room or external plant compound with simple connections to the site's gas supply and electrical distribution and heating systems.
Biofuel engine Combined Heat and Power plants use an adapted reciprocating gas engine or diesel engine, depending upon which biofuel is being used, and are otherwise very similar in design to a Gas engine CHP plant. The advantage of using a biofuel is one of reduced hydrocarbon fuel consumption and thus reduced carbon emissions. These plants are generally manufactured as fully packaged units that can be installed within a plant-room or external plant compound with simple connections to the site's electrical distribution and heating systems. Another variant is the wood gasifier CHP plant whereby a wood pellet or wood chip biofuel is gasified in a zero oxygen high temperature environment; the resulting gas is then used to power the gas engine.
Steam turbine Combined Heat and Power plants that use the heating system as the steam condenser for the steam turbine.
