Improving the Efficiency of Thermal Power Stations or Incinerators (Minerals for Ceramics)

Among the year’s innovations, Minerals for Ceramics teams launched a mineral additive used as an adjuvant in thermal power stations or incinerators. The additive reacts with ash to make it less chemically aggressive. This limits corrosion and prevents solid concretions from forming in heat exchangers and hot gas ducts. In sum, it reduces facility-maintenance needs and improves heat recovery.
