Title: Reduction of CO2 emissions through the application of OMENTM
OMENTM is a software application that computes, in real time, the optimum level for all controllable inputs and outputs, on the basis of current processes, and recommends optimal values for all controllable parameters. For the coal power plant Reuter West, owned by Vattenfall Europe Wärme AG, OMENTM achieved 1.1% p.a. reduction of CO2 emissions. The estimated economic savings amounted to 34,100 tonnes of CO2 p.a. or EUR 682,000 p.a. Further benefits included the reduction in NOX emissions, reduction in coal purchase and lower water usage.
