Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that Yokogawa Poland has completed installation of the FuzEvent™ combustion control solution at a waste-to-energy (WtE) plant operated by Krakowski Holding Komunalny SA in Krakow, Poland. FuzEvent was developed by Dublix Technology ApS (headquarters: Gentofte, Denmark, CEO: Asger Danielsen, hereinafter, “Dublix”), a Yokogawa subsidiary specializing in solutions that improve the efficiency of plants that burn municipal waste and biomass to generate electricity and provide steam for district heating.
Yokogawa Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6841) has 24.5.2022 acquired all shares of Dublix Technology ApS. The addition of Dublix's combustion control and boiler performance enhancement solutions to Yokogawa's lineup of control, monitoring, and maintenance systems will enable the provision of solutions that make both WTE and biomass power plants more efficient and profitable. Targeting the global WTE and biomass combustion market, Yokogawa provides integrated production control system, data measurement, and facility maintenance solutions.
There is an increasing demand of North American WtE plants to optimize emissions, availability and performance. Many technologies developed in Europe in the last years for optimizing existing plants are not yet implemented at the important North American fleet of existing plants. An example for that is water-jet washing of the open passes. This technology allows to clean the open boiler passes (typically first, second and third pass). The result is improved heat transfer and reduced flue gas temperatures at the convective boiler passes and superheaters.
The Mianyang WtE plant has a capacity of 1,000 tonnes per day. Dublix supplied fully automatic DD-Jet systems for water-jet cleaning of both boilers (third boiler pass). The result is improved heat transfer to the boiler and reduced flue gas temperatures. For further details on the DD-Jet system see https://www.dublix.com/solutions/boiler-cleaning.
Boiler fouling and corrosion in waste-to-energy plants (WtE) are enhanced by the Chlorine content of the waste. The core problem here are the chlorides condensing on the surface of the fly ash. With the sulfation generator these chloride layers are transformed to sulfates. The result is a drastic reduction of the corrosive and boiler fouling property of these sulfated fly ash. The amounts of the sulfur based SulfGen reagent needed are relatively small (targeted action on chloride layers only). In the Parma case will be used 3 injection cycles of 1/2 hour per day with 15 kg/h.
The international trade fair for waste technology IFAT in Munich foreseen for 2020 is canceled. Visit our booth at next IFAT from May 30 to June 2022. https://www.ifat.de/en/
The Dublix product portfolio of of engineering solutions for optimized WtE operation will be presented at the Malmo Beacon conference. For access to the Powerpoint presentation: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kjsB1rDFP2EYWcfjFwuXbIhpdXluWVQX    
      Dublix was June 2019 successfully certified in the new ISO 45001 OH&S (Occupational Health and Safety) management systems. ISO 45001 is the modern efficient occupational health and safety (OH&S) system fully integrated with Dublix ISO 9001 management system. Dublix focus on OH&S risks during our daily work in our offices and when our staff is on location at our clients WtE and Biomass combustion plants. 
At the IRRC conference in Vienna will be published the paper on "Engineered solutions for boosting the performance of existing WtE-plants". Smart engineered solutions have the capacity to boost the performance of waste incineration or waste-to-energy plants (WTE). The focus of this paper is on the existing more than 1600 WTE, which operate sometimes with quite old or even outdated equipment. The operation allows to generate relevant amounts of power and heat from mixed municipal waste. A treatment capacity of over 200 million tons of waste per year is at stake.
