Case Studies

Case Study #1

United States biomass boiler

The above graph shows the impact of CoMate® on the particulate emissions of a biomass boiler in the United States. Thanks to CoMate® Ash Modifier, the reduction has remained consistently and significantly lower than historical values.

In addition to modifying ash, CoMate® is also a combustion catalyst. As such, it can actually increase boiler efficiency (by between 2% and 3% in some cases), meaning that more energy is produced per unit of fuel burned. By increasing fuel conversion efficiencies, overall emissions are reduced per unit of energy produced.

Case Study #2

The following table illustrates an actual example of this combined benefit in a #6 heavy oil-fired boiler, measured over a two year period of CoMate® application:

Oil consumption reduction

The operators of this boiler were able to achieve their required load, with better operational variables, and with a daily average oil consumption reduction of 3,487 L - an improvement of almost 6.7% over historical averages. It is important to note that 100% of the emissions from these 3,487 L of oil is avoided, in conjunction with the improved efficiency and operating cost benefits enjoyed as a result of using CoMate®.
