Official inauguration of residual material combustion facility and gas and steam turbine CHP plant at Palm paper mill

First profits within the energy efficiency network Ostwuerttemberg

"Increased energy efficiency and reduced CO2-emissions." These are the halftime results of the energy efficiency network Ostwuerttemberg. In this network of 10 industrial companies Eproplan investigated 180 energy saving measures. The first measurements have already been realized with energy savings of about 4 %. Further energy saving measures will be prepared and implemented (press release RZ of 10th July 2009).

Eproplan takes of the energy consulting of the first 2 by BMU founded pilot-networks "energy efficiency" in Germany

Since February 2009 the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) is funding 30 pilot-networks concerning protection of climate and energy efficiency in industrial companies. In June 2009 the first 2 pilot-networks in Germany (region of Heilbronn-Franken and region of Karlsruhe), each with 10 industrial companies, started operation. Eproplan supervises these companies as energy consultant over a project duration of 4 years. For each company Eproplan is providing individual and integrated energy saving analysis and is supporting the companies in implementation, monitoring and efficiency control of energy saving measures.

Article published on gas and steam power plant project with residual material combustion facility and commissioning of residue-fired boiler at Palm paper mill in Wörth

This project was introduced to the international readership of Pulp&Paper Technology magazine by Eproplan in cooperation with Palm paper mill.

The boiler is fired by burning residues from the waste paper treatment process and went into operation on a trial basis right on schedule at the end of June (Photo).

Launch of special KfW funding for energy efficiency advice service for SMEs

As part of the drive to promote consultancy, subsidies are to be provided by the publicly funded KfW development bank for an accredited and independent energy efficiency advice service for industrial enterprises. This service is intended to highlight weaknesses in the efficient use of energy and draw up suggestions and/or specific measures for energy-saving and cost-saving improvements. Further details are available online at kfw-foerderbank.de. Eproplan is involved in providing this service as well as assisting with preparing funding applications and implementing the measures.

Two new combined gas and steam CHP plants for Palm paper mills

The two new combined gas and steam CHP plants for Palm paper mills in Wörth and Eltmann were successfully commissioned and handed over before Christmas. Two 60 MW gas and steam CHP plants of virtually identical design were erected at both paper mills after a lead time of around two years for planning and construction. The CHP plant at the Wörth site will be supplemented with a residue-fired boiler by mid-2008. This will provide a residual fuel heat capacity of around 52 MW, whereby Palm will use production residue materials and waste water treatment slurries to produce energy. As a result, two modern and highly cost-efficient energy concepts will have been realised. Eproplan developed the concepts for both CHP plants and carried out the overall planning. The official inauguration has since taken place at Eltmann (see article in the Mainpost edition of 14.01.08)

Planning approval application submitted for new combined gas and steam plant plus residue material power plant

In November 2007, the Lang paper mill in Ettringen submitted its application for planning approval for a new combined gas and steam power plant with capacities of 24 MW (steam turbine) and 30 MW (gas turboset) and including a residue combustion plant (residual fuel heat capacity of 80 MW, production residues, substitute fuels). Eproplan developed the overall concept for this project and prepared the planning application in accordance with the 17th Federal Immissions Control Act, 17 BImSchV.

Energy-saving concepts for 20 paper mills in last three years

Over the past three years, Eproplan has prepared holistic energy-saving concepts for some 20 paper mills in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. Extensive and highly cost-effective potential savings were identified at all the paper mills. The comprehensive on-site audits, in-depth consultancy discussions with operators and not least the holistic approach were greatly valued by the companies. In some cases, initial energy-savings measures were implemented even while consultations were still in progress.
