Thermal storage as a key element in the renewable electrification of industrial processes
Industrial processes, unlike the tertiary and residential sectors, require a higher proportion of heat than electricity. For this reason, the integration of renewable energies in these processes must consider thermal components that replace fossil generation systems. In this sense, different ways of obtaining renewable heat arise: Through biomass Through solar thermal energy Through renewable photovoltaic […]
Validation of structures/solar trackers. Our work methodology
The installation of structures/solar trackers for energy generation, by small companies to large energy producers, has been very common for more than 10 years. This has led to the need for validation of the structures that support photovoltaic panels. Eurocode, a worldwide reference structural validation code, does not implicitly contemplate the calculation of this type […]
Decarbonize using Co2. Are we crazy?
The new opportunities for the use of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the development of products and services are attracting the attention of governments, but especially of industry. In the special report of the IPPC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) issued in 2018, three routes are shown (Figure 1) on how global anthropogenic emissions must change […]
ECLOSION’s kick off meeting: the MISIONES renewable hydrogen and biomethane project to promote a decarbonised, sustainable and circular economy.
The consortium, coordinated by Aqualia, integrates seven leading companies in the development and implementation of the hydrogen and biomethane value chain: FCC Medio Ambiente, CADE, Ghenova, Ariema Enerxía, H2B2, Idecal and MindCaps ECLOSION project will develop new materials, technologies, and processes for the generation, storage, transport, and use of renewable hydrogen and bio-methane, to be […]
News: Pressure equipment applied to CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) sector
On January 2, the new Pressure Equipment Regulation (RD 809/2021) came into force. By means of this norm, part of the regulatory vacuum that existed regarding an important sector for the generation of renewable energy in Spain such as is the CSP sector. The first and most important novelty is that the new regulation includes […]
Solar Thermal heat for industrial processes: Decarbonize and save? Definitely yes
The industry is today faced with the challenge of a changing scenario, in which the perspective on a sustainable energy model and with a reduction in CO2 emissions is already an urgent reality. It is necessary, already today, to decarbonize current energy models and reduce energy generation costs More than 70% of the industry’s consumption […]
