Alternative fuels can significantly reduce your plant operating costs and help you meet your sustainability targets. However, their low heating value and variations in composition can create a challenge for kiln operators to achieve production and quality targets.

Our customers cite six key benefits of our oxygen enrichment technology:

  1. Increased alternative fuel substitution
  2. Lower specific energy requirement, reducing fossil fuel consumption
  3. Reduced demand on the air circuit, improving residence times and reducing emissions
  4. Improved kiln stability, resulting in more consistent product quality and production
  5. Operators can recover from temperature excursions more easily and quickly
  6. Improved control of CO and THC emissions

All of these help lower operating costs and improve profitability!
