High technology and effective methods of getting energy developed on the Kirov Biochemical plant will lead Kirov region to the leaders of energy effectiveness.

The factory of green technologies


The question of bioenergetics rises with a new force every year, especially connecting with joining Russia to the WTO. Where countries are demanded special environmental protection projects. That’s why new effective ways of getting energy are being found . The Kirov Biochemical plant has been working on the question of energy effectiveness and alternative kinds of fossil fuels for a long time, advancing some new world technologies.

The Kirov Biochemical plant is the factory of green technologies

The Kirov Biochemical plant has something to offer to the world society. Annually only in Kirov region over 2 million tones of sawdust , unstandard wood chips and other waste are thrown away in unofficial dumps. And these dumps are not in the far a way forests, they are close to the center of our region, being the cause of fires especially in hot months.

Wastes are decayed even under the usual temperatures polluting the environment.

So, the Russian government has worried about this problem a long time ago. The President of Russian D. Medvedev noted in his annual message that one of the most perspective directions for getting energy units is using wide-spread bioresources of the country, and ,firstly, wood.

The effective using of natural energy resources.

The Kirov Biochemical plant follows Russian energy policy , aiming high effective using of natural resources , which are the main power of energy side of our country.

In condition of urgent ecological disasters ,connected with climate changes, this direction becomes the strategic task of the plant. The result of using industrial wastes is the involving them into economic cycle of operations and application as second time raw materials with the getting the products.

The Kirov Biochemical plant realizes successfully the projects of saving the energy, which will not only decrease the using of energy but increase the quality of the heating supplying. Due to the involving energy save technologies , the ejection of harmful substance to the atmosphere will decrease.

More than three years the plant division producing fuel pepplets has been working.

But economical analysis shows that it is not profitable. Russian market is practically lacking but the export to European countries rises the price twice due to the transport cost. So, it is more effective to burn the clear sawdust in municipal boiler-house.

The turbine of the Kirov Biochemical plant

The Kirov Biochemical plant has developed the unique technology of getting the green energy. This 5mgw soon building turbine will be the reason to name our region the leader of energy effectiveness. More over , to give the region the status of being the first subject of Russia , where the technology of getting green energy is used.

The turbine is ready for working. No doubt, the using of such kind of energy is the way of progress. It’s not a fantasy but real facts. As, as it has been already marked, joining WTO the need in such technologies will increase .

Will the wastes be benefits?

Ecological energy strategy of the plant includes four stages of using wood wastes for energetic aims:

The first stage. Extraction of sugar from sawdust and getting biofuel E-85, which has been produced on the plant since 2007 , pepplets, stern protein, furfural.

The second stage. After finishing the process of wastes hydrolysis the second level wastes are formed-hylogen, it is recycled in the boiler- utilisator , what gives 5 mgw free energy. A new turbine and generator are bought and rebuilt in the plant for this purpose.

The third stage. During the utilization of the lignin carbon dioxide, the waste of the 3d level, is produced. On the plant an innovation technology of hydrogenation of carbon dioxide and receiving marsh-gas was developed. The hydrogen which is necessary for utilization of carbon dioxide is produced in industrial values by water electrolysis method.

The 4th stage. Bioactive mud goes to the treating buildings where produced ecologically pure biogas- marsh-gas, using which in generating units is another method of getting energy.

As a result we have the cycled system of utilization with 100% of getting energy. This scheme we can compare with the ecologically pure rotation of substances in nature. So , Kirov region can become a supportive region in the process of developing smaller energetics. It will give powerful effect for energy system of the country by significant economy from fuel energy recourses that can’t be used again.
