AB and Cartiera di Momo: energy efficiency in the paper industry switches to cogeneration

AB’s cogeneration is confirmed as an ideal environment- and economy-friendly solution for companies and a perfect choice for energy-intensive sectors such as paper-cardboard-coated board production. Cartiera di Momo S.p.A., based in Momo (Novara), was born in 1963 and over the years has established itself as a dynamic European company. Cartiera di Momo has chosen to adopt a “green” policy linked to energy efficiency by relying on AB, a world leader in the cogeneration sector, to rationalize the use of fossil fuels. This has allowed cost savings and improvement of environmental conditions with respect to greenhouse gases.

Veolia CHP adds to renewable generation from food waste

Veolia has increased its capacity for generating renewable energy from food waste with a contract to design and manage a 520kWe biogas-fired combined head and power (CHP) energy plant for Rose Hill Recycling in Gloucestershire.

The CHP plant is fuelled by the biogas derived from mixed food waste collected from across the Cotswolds and will save around 1750 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year. The new CHP will increase the use of resources and make the site energy self-sufficient using renewable energy.


International Cogeneration Equipment Market 2020

The Cogeneration Equipment Market research report is a professional and in-depth study on the current state also focuses on the major drivers and restraints for the key players. Global Cogeneration Equipment Market is Projected to grow at 4.57% CAGR during the period 2016-2020. Cogeneration Equipment Industry research report also provides granular analysis of the market share, segmentation, revenue forecasts and geographic regions of the market.

The cogeneration process involves simultaneous production of heat and electricity from a single source. This technology evolved a century ago along with steam turbine power plants. The world’s first central power station was also the first cogeneration plant that was commissioned in Manhattan in 1884. Though the technology is century old, it garnered attention from the 1980s as technological advances led to improved cogeneration cycle efficiency. Over the years, emergence of new technologies for power generation coupled with enhanced cycle efficiency fueled the sales of cogeneration equipment.


Guide to assessing viability of cogeneration projects published by ENER-G

Manchester, UK — Cogeneration specialist ENER-G has published a free guide to assessing the economic feasibility of combined heat and power (CHP) projects.

The guide, which is available to download, details the steps that building engineers and energy and facilities managers should take to prove the viability of a proposed CHP scheme to investors or board members.

A good quality CHP system will typically generate a return on investment within three to five years, and generate cost savings over 15 years or more. This, however, depends on ensuring that CHP is the right solution for the particular site and sizing the system accurately to optimise efficiency and performance.
