Greenhouses require a lot of heat, light and electricity. This is ideal for the cogeneration of heat and power in the combined heat and power units. For this reason, more than 90 % of the greenhouses usually have several combined heat and power units, which are usually operated for more than 5,000 hours a year with the inexpensive natural gas.
But plants also need CO2 to grow, and so in addition to the electricity and heat, the waste gas from the combined heat and power plants can also be used as fertilizer for the plants. The matter has a small challenge. The plants, especially tomatoes and cucumbers, are very sensitive to the ethylene contained in the natural gas in the per mille range. It poisons the blossoms, and thus the exhaust gas from the cogeneration units can only be fed into the greenhouses if it has first been freed from ethylene by Emission Partner catalysts.
The same applies to the nitrogen oxides (NOx) contained in the exhaust gas. These cannot simply be reduced below a legal limit, but must be lowered to almost zero emission, because employees also work in the greenhouse, who should not inhale the harmful gases.
And so, in addition to ethylene catalysts, Emission Partner also supplies SCR catalysts for combined exhaust gas reactors, which consist of a denitrification and an oxidation part, especially for the Dutch market. Downstream, these reactors have an exhaust gas flap that checks the exhaust gas quality using ethylene and NOx sensors, and then feeds the valuable and growth-promoting exhaust gas into the greenhouses.
The 44th Ordinance of the Federal Immission Control (BImSchV) replaces the previously valid TA Luft, which regulated the emissions of combustion engines since 2002. All plants requiring a permit smaller than 1 MW and all plants with more than 1 MW rated thermal input are affected.
The regulations have been further specified by the Federal/State Working Group for Immission Control (LAI) on the basis of VDMA Standard Sheet 6299 and extended to all plants that receive the emission reduction bonus.
With the passing of the 44th BImSchV, in June 2019, Emission Partner has launched the EMI-LOG emission monitoring system to offer you as an operator a simple, stable and functioning solution.
EMI-LOG is an engine manufacturer independent and self-sufficient solution for all engine types, and in addition to continuous compliance with emission limits, you can also meet the requirement of effective operation of your catalyst.
The data to prove the effective operation of the exhaust aftertreatment system is stored DSGVO compliant, both locally and accessible to you in a cloud. With the conclusion of a service contract, you receive automated monthly/annual reports as proof for your authority.
