The technology of burning coke oven gas waste in a steam boiler

Technical features:

Now, each plant producing coke using the dry cooling method can effectively solve the problem of emissions of harmful dust and gases into the environment through the use of natural gas production waste for energy production. It is just enough to implement the technology of drawing, cleaning and combustion of gases in the steam boiler offered by Energoinstal S.A. to significantly reduce emissions. Using dust and gas for energy production purposes is clear profit. Let us not allow pollution to destroy the environment – let us change it into clean energy!

The essence of the technology offered by Energoinstal S.A. is the use of process waste gases for energy production purposes. This method effectively uses waste gases discharged into the atmosphere, polluting the environment, such as excess gases, and also uses process coke gas after low pressure cleaning to co-generate heat and electric energy. In the classic technology, excess
gas is carried through the so-called “cold stack” or burned in a coke gas flare. The technology of Energoinstal S.A. reduces the emission of dust and gas and several other pollutants into the atmosphere.

The flagship implementation in this area is the construction of the Heat and Power Station at “Przyjaźń” Coke Plant completed in 2007. Energoinstal S.A. acted as the General Contractor of the investment. The excess gas management method used at “Przyjaźń” Coke Plant provides great energy and environmental benefits. Thermal utilisation allowed to achieve the following
strategic production objectives of the coke plant using the stream of collected fuel gas mixture: process steam, heating steam, heat for the district heating network, and ultimately generation of electric energy of 1921 MW.

Advantages of the technology:

  • The technology allows the use of energy from process gases, which will
    cover the current and future demand, without increasing the greenhouse
    effect. It allows to save non-renewable primary energy resources in the
    form of fossil fuels, while complying with the guidelines of the European
    Commission of 10 January 2007.
  • It allows reduction of a number of gas and dust pollutants discharged
    into the atmosphere.
  • Disposal of excess gas enables the achievement of additional energy
    benefits.
