Bulleh Shah Packaging – Pakistan Biomass-Fired Power Plant

Under a licensing agreement, B&W Vølund has supplied technology to a biomass fired energy plant at the Bulleh Shah Packaging Limited paper factory. The fuel consists of residues from local wheat straw, cotton stalks, corn, rice and river grass. The plant’s steam data will be 150 t/h at 530 degrees and 98 bara: enough to secure stability in the supply of steam and power to the factory. A reliable supply of energy is rare in Pakistan. It can be both expensive and challenging for the factory when p

B&W’s DRB-XCL® Burners Reduce NOx in South Africa

A major industrial petrochemical plant in South Africa needed to significantly reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions to comply with the country’s latest air quality monitoring, management and control standards. The National Environment Management: Air Quality Act required that levels be reduced to 750 mg/Nm3 for each combustion installation with a thermal rating of more than 50 MW. With levels rated at 1100 mg/Nm3, plant operators began to look at options to help achieve compliance.
