Sustainable power future for India: Doosan Lentjes presents proven combustion concepts at POWER-GEN India & Central Asia 2017
Compliance with new Indian emissions requirements: Doosan Lentjes presents the application potential of circulating fluidised bed (CFB) combustion solutions at POWER-GEN India & Central Asia from 17 – 19 May 2017 in New Delhi, India.
Given the background of efforts to reduce the environmental impact of solid fuel fired energy generation, the Indian government established stricter emissions standards for thermal power plants. Put into force in early 2017, these new standards require air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) released during the combustion process to be reduced to each 100 mg/Nm3.
Commenting on this, Damian Goral, Director Product Line Circulating Fluidised Bed (CFB) at Doosan Lentjes, says: “The challenge in handling these new requirements lies in the efficient combustion of local poor quality fuel types which may also contain high amounts of sulphur. With this in mind, our proven CFB boiler solutions enable both an efficient combustion of even the most difficult fuels as well as an excellent environmental performance. Offering integrated emissions control, more than 90% of sulphur dioxide released during the combustion can be captured by adding limestone to the CFB furnace. Simultaneously, the low and controlled combustion temperature of 850° suppresses the formation of thermal NOx. This design reduces the need for external air quality control plants while still delivering on the new Indian environmental requirements. Developed 40 years ago, the CFB boiler technology has proven its efficiency in a range of plants around the globe by reliably and sustainably generating power from a range of fuel types”, Damian adds.
Dr. Thorsten Becker, Director Sales at Doosan Lentjes, concludes: “With respect to efforts to reduce the environmental impact, we focus on developing capabilities for super critical (SC) and ultra-super critical (USC) steam conditions with outputs of up to 600 MWe per unit. Net efficiencies of 45% help to achieve a more efficient use of coal while reducing emissions – milestones of efficient and sustainable energy generation concepts of tomorrow.”
As India’s leading power event, the POWER-GEN India & Central Asia enables a cross-industry exchange with high-raking experts. A main focus of this year’s conference is on the use of clean energy for the growing Indian population.
Doosan’s strategy is based on the principle of “2G” - Growth of Business by Growth of People. 2G is a virtuous circle where people drive the business growth, which in turn provides our people the opportunity for advancement. Doosan believes that sustained success can only come through people.
