2 Agenda Waste Statistics Co- Tri Polygeneration
GQCHP – Good Quality CHP Commercial Considerations for use of CHP Applications Some Examples and Site Details Sorption Systems Commercial Example ~ Funding Grants Concluding Remarks

3 Some Food Industry Statistics
Major user of energy ~ 100TWh which is equivalent to 11% of energy use by business 7.9 Million tonnes Carbon p.a. Significant waste stream ~ accounting for 10% industrial & commercial waste Refrigeration is a significant polluter in terms of refrigerant leakage (Can be >25% energy CO2 equivalent in some sectors) Landfill waste costs rising annually -current cost typically £93/t overall

4 Waste Figures in the UK 19 million tonnes food waste (+/- 5%)
6.7 million tonnes household food waste 4.1 m t / p.a. food manufacture 3.0 m t / p.a. food service & restaurants 1.6 m t / p.a. retail food 3.6 m t / p.a. remainder ~ horticulture, agriculture, schools, hospitals. Source

5 Defra Backs Anaerobic Digestion
Organic Materials - Manure Slurry Food waste - could be source of 2 MWhe Source UK Gov. - Jane Kennedy Farming & Environment Minister Defra indicate the UK produces >100Mtonnes of organic waste (90 M tonnes from manure) Defra launching Task force - To Assist sectors such as Farming , Water Industry, Food Industry to produce biogas NFU target to have 1,000 on farm units by 2020 to power farms and have fertilisers as a byproduct


7 Definition of Polygeneration
CHP is the simultaneous production of Heat & Power derived from a single or multiple source of fuel/energy. Polygeneration is the use of multiple energy inputs to create multiple energy outputs.

8 Why Trigeneration Embedded Power Trigeneration?
Grid Power Conventional

9 Grid Supply Energy Efficiency Limitations
Grid electrical efficiency use on site is limited to the power station efficiency minus distribution losses e.g. 40% - 4% = 36% (Max Available) The waste heat from the power stations have historically not been captured / used waste energy. CHP has opportunities to use this waste energy and can accordingly improve the thermal efficiency on applications compared to grid electrical supply reaching efficiencies of =>80%

10 Conventional Systems ή Power station 40-45% ή transmission = - 3%
ή Power to site = % ή Loss = 63% – 58% 2/3 energy is lost

11 Conventional Systems Energy Act - 80% reduction in energy use by 2050
ή Power station 40-45% ή transmission = - 3% ή Power to site = % ή Loss = 63% – 58% 2/3 energy is lost Energy Act - 80% reduction in energy use by 2050 How can we achieve it !

12 The key design Good Quality CHP (GQCHP)
The target energy usage should ideally have a ratio of heat/power requirements, which are as closely in phase with the ratio of heat and power delivered by the CHP plant through all the production capacities / demand. The Measure is Good Quality CHP ( My Rule of thumb) Index = 200 Electrical Efficiency Thermal Efficiency > 100 GQCHP Avoids payment of climate change levy (CCL)

13 CHP the Success Criteria
Continuous and matched heat & electrical supply & demand Suitable ratio of energy demand/supply Currently Spark Gap (electrical cost / fuel cost) > 3.0 CO2 emission reduction – Tax advantages Improved security of supply Interruptible energy supply cost savings - supply security Suitable relative capital incentive – mains supply Relative maintenance costs not a significant penalty Projected life cycle costs are attractive compared to conventional.

14 Some Applications of CHP
The plant electrical or part load supply plus Water/Fluid heating – Process industry, adjacent heating, space heating, food cooking/ pasteurisation Steam raising – district heating, process heating CO2 + electricity + heat for horticulture Drying - direct – milk, process - indirect – waste sludge, - secondary processes

15 Actual Deliveries of CHP Systems by a Leading Supplier

16 Commercial Considerations for Successful CHP Applications
e.g. Electricity £0.010/kWh : Gas £0.030 /kWh Rule of thumb Spark Gap > 3.0 Relative cost of power / fuel ~ Electricity to Gas Cost of electricity - gas ~ Price Gap = 7.0 p/kW Cost of electricity / gas ~ Spark Gap = 3.3 Electricity Connection Charge and agreements Gas Connection charge and agreement Potential to manage interruptible gas supplies

17 The Prime Movers There is a variety of available systems that
can be applied as the electrical primary energy Supply devices. E.g. Reciprocating Engines Microturbines Gas Turbines Steam Turbines Solar ORC (Organic Rankin Cycle) Fuel Cells

18 Some fuels used in prime movers
Natural Gas (including interruptible supplies, CNG) Wellhead Gases LPG (liquid and gaseous) Naphtha Landfill and Sewage Gas Mines Gas (Coal Bed Methane) High Hydrogen Gases Coke oven gas Synthetic Gases from biomass, coal and wastes Gasified (‘wood & waste food gas’) Diesel, Kerosene & biofuels Crude Oil Waste solvents e.g. ethanol, methanol hydrocarbon based solvents Permits are potentially an issue to consider

19 Zero or Negative Cost Fuels

20 An Example of a CHP application
Waste Reprocessing plant Washing Plastic Food Crates Uses a submersible conveyor with direct gas fired heaters (effective heating water to 700C in a tank through which the conveyor belt with the crates are transported and dried with an air knife) – replaced with a CHP Heating load 600kWh effective Electrical site load 400kWe +/- 150 kWe Note the balance of supply and demand !




24 Typical Life Cycle Costs

27 Trigeneration ~ Combined Heat Cooling/Refrigeration & Power

28 Sorption Refrigeration Systems
• Absorption is the incorporation of a substance into another of a different state. e.g. Liquids into Solids or Gases into Liquids Absorption is basically where a material takes in another substance. • Adsorption is the physical adherence or bonding of ions and molecules onto the surface of another phase ( e.g. reagents adsorbed to solid catalyst surfaces) .

29 Simplified Silica Gel Schematic
• Water refrigerant • Vacuum Vessel • H2O evaporates • Chilled Water formed • Silica Saturates • Heat Regenerates Silica • Cycle commences • Adjacent chamber – typically 2 chambers • Adjacent chamber with external thermal storage necessary
