Decarbonising Energy Supplies

Decarbonising Energy Supplies

Decarbonise Energy SupplyCO2 emissions can be reduced or even eliminated by replacing fossil fuels with biofuels, and waste-derived fuels, or through electrification. Already common in some markets, this trend is likely to accelerate as the goal of net-zero carbon is sought.

Standardised hydrocarbon fuels such as natural gas or diesel are much easier to manage than the often-changeable nature of alternative energy sources such as refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and biomass. As supply chains for these resources mature, the consistency of these sources is likely to improve; however, optimising combustion with these fuels can be a major test for operators with quality, efficiency and emissions targets still needing to be met.

Thermal imaging is ideal for monitoring and optimising carbon rich flames from the combustion of biomass and waste sources. Mid-infrared imaging is able to see through the gases of combustion, providing a rich data source for optimising combustion, monitoring slagging and deposition, and revealing early warning signs of refractory damage, enabling proactive repairs to maintain maximum up-time.
