The BINE Information Service ...

... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

Storing thermal energy with vacuum and volcanic rock technology

To increase the proportion of heat supply covered by solar thermal energy, greater efficiency is called for in storage tank technology. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Vacuum tank stores heat” (14/2014) details the development of a storage tank with an enclosure that exhibits very low thermal conductivity. A vacuum between the inner and outer tank and a perlite powder filling in the cavity facilitate favourable insulating values.  more...

Integrating more renewable energy in district heating networks

The German government has set the target of covering 14 per cent of the heat market from renewable energy sources by 2020. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Making district heating renewable” (13/2014) describes the potential makeup of a district heating supply transformation. Researchers have investigated the energy sources most suitable in this regard from a technical and scientific perspective. Citing results from model regions and best practice examples, the researchers have developed strategies for the future.  more...
 
 

Networking the energy supply of industrial parks

Industrial parks and commercial zones are home to companies from many different industries producing goods virtually side-by-side. With an energy supply system that serves the entire business-spanning estate infrastructure, greater overall efficiency gains can be achieved through the effects of compromise and synergy between the different companies. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Saving energy on commercial and industrial parks” (12/2014) presents a new simulation program that identifies previously untapped efficiency potential for electricity, heating and cooling. The program can identify optimisation proposals according to various economic and energy parameters and generate graduated suggestions.  more...

Economical landfill gas treatment

Landfill gas sourced from landfill sites and sewage treatment plants can also be burned in combined heat and power plants and used for energy purposes in place of conventional natural gas. To prevent premature wear to turbines and motors, however, the gas must first be cleansed of undesirable impurities such as organic silicon compounds. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Clean use of landfill gas” (11/2014) presents a method by which the adsorption agent is regenerated on-site. Consequently, the activated carbon must be exchanged less frequently. The objective is to reduce costs and to make the process of gas purification more efficient.  more...
