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 ...

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...

Research in the international technology network

The International Energy Agency (IEA) enables scientists and other experts to share energy research on a global basis. The IEA’s Technology Network provides the necessary organisational framework for this. The recently published BINE-Themeninfo brochure “Researching in the global network – Germany’s contribution to the International Energy Agency” (I/2014) describes a selection of initiatives in which German institutions are actively involved. Themes include energy-efficient buildings, smart grids, energy storage systems and renewable energy sources.  more...

Saving energy while warming up snacks

In modern ovens, heated air circulates evenly throughout the oven space. When cooking small quantities of food such as frozen pizza, this creates unnecessarily high energy costs. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Creating microclimates in ovens” (10/2014) describes the development of a demonstration oven that can save up to 40% of the energy.  more...

Energy efficient use of domestic waste water

The faeces contained in domestic sewage, so-called black water, can be used for producing biogas. Until now this has been mostly conducted at the end of the sewage channels at the waste water treatment plant. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Energy from waste water supplies urban district” (09/2014) presents an alternative concept for the new Jenfelder Au district in Hamburg. Here the individual domestic waste water flows are no longer mixed but are drained separately. This enables the concentrated black water to be utilised in a particularly efficient manner in a decentralised biogas plant. The separately discharged rainwater is used to fill a pond.  more...
