Title: Energy Recovery & Cleaning System
Scheuch (Austria) developed the ERCS process (energy recovery & cleaning system) for exhaust gas scrubbing after the burning of natural, moist biomass. In addition to its accustomed and respected reliability in the segregation of dust and particles, the process affords highly efficient heat recovery. Depending on system combinations, the dust pollution can be minimized and up to 40% of the waste heat can be recovered from the exhaust. If such heat recovery is integrated in project planning, then the furnace plant can be accordingly smaller, which reduces investment costs significantly and saves up to 30% of fuel.
