energy company Mark-E relies on CEMS solutions from SICK

Recording, analysis, transmission: Emission data management with MEAC

Public bodies ask for full and accurate reports: has the company in question adhered to the limits for environmental emissions at fossil fuel power plants, hazardous waste  incineration plants, and biomass-based power plants? Simple-to-use data acquisition systems that are not susceptible to faults or failures are therefore crucial for companies operating this type of facility. The MEAC data acquisition system by SICK is reliable and popular with customers, providing them with a solution for the continuous recording, analysis and transmission of emission data. Expert service included.     Continue reading

The sooner, the better: measuring mercury in raw gas

Stricter limits for mercury emissions?

The thresholds for mercury emissions are already as low as the μg spectrum. To be able to monitor even tighter restrictions, measuring devices need to be extremely sensitive, accurate, and reliable. The MERCEM300Z mercury measuring system monitors Hg emissions in flue gases with high reliability within the smallest measuring ranges. Continue reading

ACHEMA 2015: SICK presents its complete solutions for gas analysis, dust measurement, and loop measurement

When it comes to clean measuring solutions, SICK is the first choice. That’s because SICK offers complete solutions for gas analysis, dust measurement, and loop measurement, that are perfectly adapted to the customer’s process landscape. Come and see for yourself at ACHEMA 2015, the world forum for chemical engineering and the leading trade fair for the process industry, in Hall 11.1 at Stand A85. Continue reading

Greenhouse gas measurement

Measuring rather than calculating: Efficient greenhouse gas measurement directly in the stack

Emissions trading requires facilities that generate greenhouse gases to take their own measurements and draw up reports concerning the volume of emissions that they produce. The EU directive that took effect at the beginning of 2013 saw the introduction of more stringent requirements when it comes to the accuracy of these measurements. The measurement uncertainty for high quantities of emissions must be below 2.5%. Vantaan Energia, an energy supplier based in Finland, has found a solution to this challenge thanks to the GHG-Control greenhouse gas measuring system by SICK. Continue reading

What can we do with all the green energy?

Power-to-gas storage technology: Almost ready for market

Video abspielen

Storing green power is a key milestone when it comes to the successful implementation of the energy transition. Converting it into hydrogen or synthetic natural gas is a concept that shows a great deal of promise and involves the stages of water electrolysis, methanation, and feeding the power into the natural gas grid. SICK’s involvement relates to gas analysis and the detection of gas flows and consumption rates. Continue reading
