Observer Report Islamabad
An agreement on a renovation project of a waste heat recovery power plant was signed between China Sinoma Energy Conservation Limited (Sinoma EC) and Lucky Cement, according to a report published by the Gwadar Pro on Wednesday.
Under the agreement, the generating capacity of the two power stations utilising waste heat is expected to increase by about 4MW after the transformation.
The agreement came into effect after a contract entered between the two sides on a 7500t/d supporting power station project with waste heat of cement in late March this year.
Sinoma EC, a patent-holding company specialised in energy-saving and emission-reduction, started cooperation with Lucky Cement in 2008.
Since then, it has undertaken several projects, including the Pezu Lines AB and CD waste heat recovery power plant with a generating capacity of 10 MW respectively, the 15 MW Karachi Line EFG power plant with waste heat, Karachi Line H waste heat boiler extension, etc.
Waste thermal energy is one of the largest sources of inexpensive and clean energy available.
Waste heat power generation, or Waste Heat to Power (WHP), is the process of recovering waste heat and using it to generate power with no combustion and no emissions.
Recovery of waste heat helps reduce energy costs for industrial processes. By using the waste heat to generate emission-free electricity, industrial users can put wasted energy back into the process that created it, route the power somewhere else in the facility, or sell it to the grid to support clean energy production, distribution and use.
Moreover, such practices are in conformity with the initiative to build a green CPEC.
