Creating Clean Hydrogen from Coal
Forging a pathway to simultaneously use its abundant resources and infrastructure AND produce clean power, Black Hills Energy selected B&W's BrightLoopTM hydrogen generation technology for its project to generate hydrogen from coal and capture CO2. BrightLoop is B&W's novel chemical looping technology that can use a variety of feedstock fuels to produce clean energy.
ESPecially Exciting Learning Opportunity
Spots are still available for the ESP & Controls technical training seminar, July 17-20 in Chicago. Attendees will earn CEU credits and learn how best to troubleshoot and maintain precipitators.

When it's an Energy Transition and not an Overnight Shift
Working toward reliable, affordable and clean energy, many plant owners are still looking to maximize their investment in existing equipment to keep the lights on. Can there be a balance?
PEOPLE SPOTLIGHT: Doug Lindsey
For 50+ years of exceptional service in the field, knowledge of boiler performance and controls, and commitment to mentoring colleagues, Doug Lindsey was recognized with the prestigious B&W Engineering Honors Award.
PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: Lerwick Energy Recovery Plant
We recently upgraded a waste-to-energy boiler at the Lerwick Energy Recovery Plant in the Shetland Islands. The project including the installation of water-cooled wear zones to prevent slag accumulation in the furnace.
Q: Are there benefits to thermal energy storage vs. lithium ion batteries?
A: Yes. The primary benefit is duration. Battery technologies such as lithium ion or zinc provide energy for 4 hours. Thermal energy storage can provide energy for hundreds of hours with only the incremental cost of sand to increase the duration of storage capacity.
Did You Know?
Carbon capture and clean energy are dominating recent headlines, but B&W has been working on decarbonization technologies for more than four decades. More than 90 of our 17,000+ patents are for carbon capture innovations.
