– Challenging the status quo of conventional fossil fuel power stations. The four crucial factors governing success for Energy from Waste (EFW) and biomass combustion projects continue to revolve around: location technology fuel supply investment Ground Breaking Technology Will Win the Smart Money Despite the challenge of what can be ground breaking technology, at least […]
Increasing demands on water companies to meet environmental targets, reduce costly overheads and streamline operations have opened up further debate on alternative ways to be more profitable. The UK Government and the Environmental Agency produced an evidence document in 2009 “transforming wastewater treatment to reduce carbon emissions”. The WFD (Water Framework Directive) set targets that […]
We believe combined heat and power (CHP) projects using UK waste wood should have a long-term beneficial role as part of the UK’s future energy mix, as is the case in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe. An abundance of raw materials for CHP plants As an energy source, waste wood is not dependent on […]
The 20th European Biosolids & Organic Resources Conference is Europe’s foremost conference for the biosolids and biowaste industries and this year as well as reviewing sludge developments to date, will be exploring future solutions. Due to my work with Utilities and Contractors in the Water Industry I was asked to demonstrate at the event some […]
Saxlund International is exhibiting at RWM 2015 on September 15th to 17th in halls 4/5 stand 4B33. RWM is one of the biggest European events for companies researching & actioning the best solutions for resource efficiency and waste management. Saxlund is a leading specialist in biomass combustion, Energy-from-Waste, alternative fuel systems for cement works and […]
Delivering low cost energy Energy security and rising electricity costs are big issues for cities and municipalities across Europe, especially for those that rely substantially on large energy producers and imported fossil fuels for their power generation. Recent falls in the cost of fossil fuels, on the back of declining oil prices, have given some […]
The ever increasing debate around waste to energy vs historical landfill has been with us for several years. Governments around the world are focused on reducing the environmental impact that increased energy consumption creates. The Department for Environment, Food & Rural affairs (Defra) quoted in their energy from waste guide in 2014: Waste to energy has […]
Technological innovation is completely changing how the industry deals with sewage sludge and advanced digestion schemes to improve processing efficiency and convert sludge to energy are now commonplace. Many companies still use bucket loaders for part of the operation, but there is a growing requirement for robust bulk material handling solutions that deal with a […]
We’re announcing a new, wet steam turbine (WST), power solution, designed by our sister company Opcon Energy Systems, to produce up to 6,000MWh of emission-free electricity per year from waste saturated or superheated steam. This means we can produce between 200kW – 800kW of electricity from low grade steam with the new Opcon Powerbox Wet Steam Turbine, just […]
Small-scale biomass fired CHP offers a real opportunity for UK Energy needs and other parts of Europe too. Especially when it comes to using waste wood, forest residues and other solid recovered fuels. One year in a new CHP plant in Sweden, operated by energy company Falbygdens Energi, shows what can be successfully achieved in […]
What was once a problematic by-product, forward thinking water companies are now exploiting sludge as an important fuel in their businesses.
Improving the efficiency of wastewater management and sewage sludge processing using robust bulk material handling solutions and advanced digestion systems are now commonplace in reducing fuel costs and carbon emissions.
