There was a time when the concern surrounding powering an energy system simply involved the cost of the fuel and the cost efficiency in burning that fuel. However, in a world where global warming and other environmental issues are gaining a higher and higher level of importance, there are more factors than ever being taken into consideration. Consider a U.S. company that specifically develops energy technologies that are environmentally sustainable in order to provide their customers with the ability to use their energy sources in a cost-effective and environmentally conscious manner.
Were you even aware that there is a low-temperature, low pressure pyrolysis process that makes coal conversion more economically viable than other typical processes? This process converts coal and biomass into products that can be refined into more environmentally friendly products.
In this case, the system consists of two major components: a pyrolysis unit and a dryer unit (Pyrolysis is a form of incineration that chemically decomposes organic materials by heat in the absence of oxygen.) The process involves a variety of instrumentation to monitor the various steps in the process to ensure the system performs according to its design.
If you look deep enough you can probably find solutions to difficult energy issues like this that don’t sacrifice the environment in order to achieve your cost of energy goals. And the payback of an environmentally sound solution can become a selling point to your customers as well.
