... 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 ...

Supporting renewables with coal-fired power plants

To enable more renewable energy to be fed into the grid, conventional power plants need to be more flexible. At the Jänschwalde power plant in Brandenburg, ignition and auxiliary burners with plasma ignition ensure that the fluctuating residual load can be better covered. The procedure is described in the BINE-Projektinfo brochure 07/2016, entitled "Dried lignite increases flexibility".  more...

Burning wood with 90% less particulate matter

In terms of their ecological balance, wood-fired heating systems offer a virtually closed CO2 cycle if the firewood comes from sustainable forests without long transport routes. However, they also significantly contribute to hazardous particulate emissions in cities. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Clean heating with wood" (06/2016) presents a new electrostatic particle separator that is especially designed for wood chip and wood log boilers with thermal outputs between 50 and 200 kW. The method is suitable for both new boilers and for retrofitting existing systems.  more...

Converting waste plastics into gas

Until now, plastics such as PVC have created problems during waste treatment. Although they have a high calorific value, their combustion produces harmful compounds that can escape into the environment. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Generating syngas from plastic wastes" (05/2016) presents a new gasification process for this waste fraction. In this process, waste plastics, carbon-containing sorting residues and rubber parts as well as shredded materials from the automotive sector are treated in a shaft kiln. Here lime plays a decisive role.  more...

Heating and cooling with environmental energy

Environmental energy provides an efficient way to supply energy to non-residential buildings such as office and administration buildings, educational and recreational facilities as well as industrial sheds. The buildings can be efficiently heated and cooled using the combined use of thermo-active building systems and heat pumps. Across 24 pages, the new BINE-Themeninfo brochure entitled "Efficiently heating & cooling non-residential buildings" (II/2016) presents low-exergy concepts for these buildings. In these concepts, the environmental heat sources, heating and cooling technology in the building and the comfort requirements of the users are matched as closely as possible with each other right from the beginning of the planning. This enables considerable energy efficiency.  more...
