Renewable energies are on the rise worldwide - particularly in power generation. Nonetheless, the majority of the global electricity demand is still met through combustion of fossil and alternative fuels and will be in the foreseeable future. The fuel mix is projected to shift away from coal and oil towards natural gas, biomass and waste. Meanwhile, combustion based power generation is coming under increasing economic and regulatory pressure. Ambitious environmental targets and increasing fuel prices require maximum plant efficiency and reduction of emissions.
In this context heat recovery from corrosive flue gas is crucial in order to fully exploit the energy content of fuels. This is particularly challenging for alternative fuels like biomass, biofuels or waste, which burn relatively "dirty" thus forming extremely agressive acid mixes. Furthermore, power generation is still among the largest consumers of water. Its footprint could therefore greatly benefit from full flue gas condensation, which recovers evaporated water and the large amount of latent heat it contains.
Technoform's heat transfer solutions are a key enabler of the transition to clean power. Being highly corrosion resistant, they enable efficient heat transfer in flue gas streams below acid dew point under conditions where common materials cannot be used. Full design flexibility allows for seamless integration into new plants or retrofits.
