Chemical Wastes to Power
Versatile LPP Combustion Power Systems
Chemical waste streams and refinery by-products serve as viable fuel for power generation. Excess ethane produced by gas-processing plants provides low-cost, local-fuel to self-power facility.
Multi-fuel capability of LPP Combustion equipment enables repurposing of chemical waste-streams and process by-products as on-site fuels for power generation.
Using fuels produced on-site can lower power costs.
Industrial contexts include:
Specialty chemicals plants
Using waste-streams to generate electricity turns overhead waste-disposal costs into a profit center.
Already in-place gas-turbine power plants can be easily upgraded to multi-fuel capability via installation of the modular LPP Combustion front-end equipment.
Viable fuels include: toluene, acetone, isopropyl alcohol, methanol, etc. Some low-energy-density fuels, such as methanol - can be spiked with appropriate proportions of high-energy-density fuels, such as oilfield Y-grade NGLs.
The LPP Combustion Fuel Preparation Skid attaches to the standard fuel-intake of the gas-turbine without modification to the gas-turbine.
High-energy-density liquid fuels stored on-site give power producers low-cost options during times of constrained natural gas supply when gas prices spike - without triggering air quality violations as is currently the case with diesel fuel use.
LPP Combustion equipment enables low-emissions use of diesel and other liquid fuels, ensuring compliance with air-quality regulations - even with extended use to provide base-load power.
