Additive for bagasse and husk fired boilers

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.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
