Biofuel Use Efficiency and Emission Reduction Technology Research and Development


Project no.: J05-LVPA-K-01-0161

Project description:

The project is being implemented from 2017 to 2020 by Priority 1 of the EU Investment Funds Promotion of Research, Experimental Development and Innovation and program NR J05-LVPA-K Intellect. Common scientific and business projects. The project is co-ordinated by JSC “Enerstena” with the participation of KUT and LEI energy science departments. The aim of the project is to create an effective technology that utilize renewable energy sources based on combustion of biofuels and heat recovery from flue gases. KUT participates in the process of developing the system Combined Combustion Air Moisturizer, Capture Device for Solid Particles, Condensing Economizer System with Optimized Parameters and Hydrodynamic Droplet Separator.

Project funding:

This research project is funded by European Regional Development Fund according to the 2014–2020 Operational Programme for the European Union Funds’ Investments under measure No. J05-LVPA-K “Intellect. Joint Science-Business Projects”.

Project results:

The aim is to optimize the process of combustion of biofuels and to reduce the concentration of contaminants in combustion products (flue gases); Flue gases can be cleaned from solid particles; Optimize water injection into discharged flue gases to ensure efficient heat recovery in the condensate economiser; To separate water droplets from the emitted flue gases into the atmosphere.

Period of project implementation: 2017-04-04 - 2020-03-31

Project coordinator: Company "Enerstena"

Project partners: Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuanian Energy Institute
