3- ECOMB AB, Södertälje, SWE

Website : http://www.ecomb.se/en/index.asp

The demand to reduce the emissions from different types of combustion plants around the world has accelerated during the last decade. Not only because of standards and claims from the authorities but also from the companies own environmental policies.

The company ECOMB AB was founded in 1992 at the same time as the first application for a patent of the Ecotube-system was handed in. The invention, now protected on all essential markets around the world, implicates a new concept for optimising the combustion process in boilers.

By installing retractable tubes, equipped with nozzles, (Ecotubes) inside the boiler, secondary air can be added with high pressure and high speed improving the mixing of the gases. The result is a remarkable reduction of pollutants like nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) in the flue gas. At the same time the thermal efficiency increases which implies not only lower fuel costs but also a reduction of carbon dioxide, the main source to the greenhouse effect.

The purpose for ECOMB is to develop, market and supply the Ecotube-system as well as selling license rights.

4- Greco

14 – CCS – European Cement Research Academy

website : https://ecra-online.org/research/ccs/

he European Cement Research Academy (ECRA) was founded in 2003 as a platform on which the European cement industry supports, organises and undertakes research activities within the context of the production of cement and its application in concrete. By creating and disseminating knowledge from research findings, ECRA’s aim is to facilitate and accelerate innovation to guide the cement industry.

 

ECRA’s activities are pre-competitive and comprise seminars, workshops and dedicated research projects. Its seminars and workshops provide a platform for teaching the latest knowledge on cement and concrete technology and for communicating and discussing the latest research findings. The seminar programmes cover process and concrete-oriented issues of high concern to the cement industry. Some seminars are of specific interest to cement producers, while others provide information more important to cement associations.

 

ECRA understands itself as part of a network which comprises various research facilities such as universities, federal institutes and the research centres of cement companies or equipment suppliers. In this context it is able to develop a knowledge centre which benefits from cooperation with the best institutes in the respective areas of research and acts as a core competence centre providing a broad platform for top researchers in each field.

 

The Academy is steered by a Technical Advisory Board staffed with representatives from major European cement producers under the chairmanship of Daniel Gauthier of HeidelbergCement. The Board is responsible for defining the focus and scope of ECRA’s seminar programmes and research projects and monitors the Academy’s finances.
