Cogeneration from special gases for the production of electrical and thermal energy.

With the ECOMAX® Special Gas line, AB becomes the reference point for cogeneration plants from special gases, which use gas recovered during oil extraction and in coal processing processes.

In oil wells, ECOMAX® Special Gas allows the safe treatment of associated petroleum gas or APG, mainly composed of methane, which escapes under pressure during mining activities and which is often flared in order to avoid explosion hazards.

With cogeneration it is possible to control and manage it, transforming it into an opportunity: it is exploited as a fuel for cogeneration plants powered by gases generated by oil production, which in turn produce electricity and heat and allow a reduction in energy costs.

Coke oven gas, an abundant by-product of converting coal to coke for steelmaking, is also suitable as a fuel for ECOMAX® Special Gas.

In coal mines, ECOMAX® Special Gas makes it possible to exploit methane, present both as a free gas and as a gas absorbed on the internal surface of the carboniferous rock and surrounding rocks.

With the ECOMAX® Special Gas solutions, both the heat and the electricity produced can be used for the needs of the mining sites. Excess electricity, on the other hand, can be sold to the network.

ECOMAX® Special Gas cogeneration plants can also be fed with syngas, or synthesis gas, a gaseous mixture artificially produced from substances that contain carbon, such as agricultural waste or by-products from the forestry industry.
