Delta Petro Additives, New Delhi, India, has developed an additive bagasse fired boilers that reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This additive is specially suitable for sugar mills, paper mills & power plants based on bagasse.
Sugar mills use bagasse as a fuel in their boilers, to generate steam and power. Delta Petro Additives Ltd, (e-mail Admin@DeltaPetro.In) has developed an additive, said to be the first in the world, that reduces bagasse consumption in the boiler.
It does so by breaking the moisture in bagasse into hydrogen and incipient oxygen; and the combining the hydrogen with carbon to form methane. The methane burns as fuel in the boiler, supplementing bagasse.
Since methane is a relatively cleaner burning fuel, the CO2 emissions are also reduced. This can be sold as Carbon Credits, creating another source of revenue for the user.
Even without carbon credits, the additive saves money to the user. It also enables customers to use wet bagasse, up to 65% moisture, thus saving money on drying it.
