Fog unit (IFUS)

IFUS: Individual Heat Supply with Integrated Fog Unit System

Project IFUS offer new technological solution of flue gas purification for small capacity biomass boilers, which is intended to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency (till 20%), comparing with traditional solutions. The main idea for this solution is to create fog effect zone in the equipment of flue gas purification, thereby reducing emissions of small particles (PM 10, PM 2.5) and environmentally harmful gases. Fog zone properties in the joint of pollution will be considered also using electric and electromagnetic field. The main project activities include the creation of experiment plan for the process research of heat and mass exchange in the experimental equipment, the creation of mathematical model and coincidences comparison of the results with experimental data, measurements for determination of emissions reduction and energy efficiency improvement, using experimental equipment. Identification of technological solution will be done for pH level regulation during flue gas purification, to prevent risks of corrosion, and purification of pulp, which has emerge during flue gas purification. Finally process analysis of influencing parameters will be carried out, to be possible to improve performance of equipment. Main project result – prototype will be developed for equipment of flue gas purification, which is for emission reduction of small capacity boilers. The project aim is to develop new equipment solution of flue gas purification for combustion equipment of small capacity boilers, reducing emissions (about 80%) and increasing energy efficiency (about 20%), comparing with traditional solutions.
