3. Energy saving systems

The growing shortage of energy resources, increasing of energy costs and striving of the enterprises to sustainable development and increasing of the production reinforce the relevance and necessity of development and implementation of scientifically based low-cost methods, means and technologies of energy saving with high level of environmental safety.

3.1. General information

STC “ECOTES” to achieve the goal of energy efficiency at various industries offers targeted implementation of energy saving systems, namely:

  • assessment of energy consumption, diagnosis of energy equipment and analysis of environmental pollution made by harmful emissions units at the plant or another object;
  • research and summarize the nature of factors, parameters and indexes of the object for energy saving with simultaneous analysis of the harmful emissions;
  • development of the ecological strategy of units and the object as a whole bases on energy balances;
  • development of the conceptual framework of automated, control and monitoring systems of ecological indicators of object exploitation;
  • development of targeted low-cost and available of environmentally safe methods, tools, technologies and energy saving systems for specific units, and production objects in general;
  • analysis of possibilities for activation and motivation for application of economic and energy saving tools at enterprises.

3.2. Scientific novelty and practical value of development the Centre of energy saving and increasing of environmental safety:

  • first completed complex analysis of the interaction of factors and parameters of exploitation of the objects on the level of energy saving and environmental security;
  • proposed universal indicators of energy saving and environmental safety, considering the impact of fuel, technological and operating factors and allow to realize objectively reasonable strategy of using a complex of events and effective conditions for implementation on the stages of forecasting, planning, exploitation and modernization of thermal power facilities;
  • on the basis of thermodynamic analysis methods using entropy method and the method efficiency was developed the methodology of environmental analysis and optimization of thermal units facilities;
  • first formulated the principle of ecological balance of energy development and suggested criteria for assessing the level of energy saving and environmental safety;
  • was developed methodology of environmental management of energy consumption on the objects based on the environmental examination, auditing and monitoring; was developed the methodology, specifications and algorithm of environmental examination of powerful facilities (thermal power plants, gas turbine);
  • was designed influences compensation method for different types of objects for estimation of energy saving and emission of harmful substances (for example, power boiler was designed with universal form of his personal energy and environmental characteristics, which considers the complex influence of excess air ratio, the relative load of the boiler, the degree of recycling);
  • was created and implemented methodology for low-cost technology to optimize efficiency and minimize emissions of toxic components (NOx, CO) during exploitation of the units;
  • was created the concept of unified low-toxic burner for burning gaseous fuel with a high level of environmental safety.

3.3. Proposals for cooperation

STC “ECOTES”  offers for companies:

  • modeling and monitoring of real energy consumption and emissions from manufacturing processes;
  • implementation of the developed methodologies and technologies for energy saving on specific units and objects with an assessment of the impact on the environment;
  • implementation of integrated low-cost energy saving technologies improve at the real objects and units and minimization of the emission of toxic components (NOx, CO);
  • implementation of automated monitoring, analysis and optimization technology parameters of units’ exploitation and manufacturing processes at the real objects;
  • promptly realization of upgrades of fuel burning devices with high indices of economic efficiency and environmental safety through the use of technologies developed by scientists from the Centre.
