Complete Waste-to-Gas Solution for Next Generation Emission Reduction System Plus Power

Integrated Waste Gas to Power Solution

(MARIETTA, GA., – August 29, 2018) – Sigma Thermal is pleased to offer a complete waste gas-to-power packaged solution. The solution is called the Emission Reduction and Power System and is comprised of Sigma Thermal’s process heater and ElectraTherm’s compact and robust organic Rankine cycle generator to offer solutions for oil and gas facilities, wastewater treatment plants, and landfills. This integrated waste gas-to-power solution can assist industrial users with meeting tough emissions and local code requirements. It is easy to transport, install, operate and can also produce power from an unutilized resource.ElectraTherm brochure img

Within the integrated package, Sigma Thermal’s process heating system is being utilized to convert waste gas to hot water, which provides the energy needed to power ElectraTherm’s Power + Generator®. Options are available that allow for a supply of hot water discharge that can be used on-site, and a hinged end-plate is included on the heater to provide easy access for dirty fuel cleaning. The entire skid mounted system is delivered with interconnecting piping and wiring and is ready for quick and easy on-site installation.

This partnership has enabled us to produce a solution that can dramatically lower on-site emissions related to flaring and produce electricity from a resource that would otherwise be considered a nuisance. In oil and gas production and refining facilities, where natural gas is being flared, the system can be used to convert waste fuel to electricity, minimizing (and potentially eliminating) flaring while significantly reducing emissions. At wastewater treatment plants and landfills producing biogas, the emission reduction system (as opposed to conventional generators) allows for easier management of gases containing hydrogen sulfide or siloxane contaminants and can contribute to the sites renewable energy goals.

Sigma Thermal Purchases a 100 Kilowatt Solar Installation from Renewvia

MARIETTA, Ga. — In keeping with their company-wide dedication to optimized efficiency and innovative energy savings, Sigma Thermal has installed a 100 kW solar energy array at the company’s facility in Marietta, Ga. This advanced, eco-friendly technology will supplement roughly half of the manufacturer’s electricity needs during peak consumption times, and nearly 100% in lower consumption periods.

Crafted by renewable energy expert Renewvia Energy, the solar panel installation was completed in December 2017. With a projected generating capacity of up to 144,000 kWh per year, the investment will reduce Sigma Thermal’s carbon footprint by 106 metric tons. The company expects to see a complete return on the solar investment in three years or less.

Renewvia specializes in the development of rooftop, canopy, and ground-mounted solar arrays, providing partners with clean, reliable, and cost-effective power. With expertise in investment-grade commercial real estate and structured project financing, Renewvia offers highly innovative, financeable renewable solutions for companies across a range of industries.

As an energy systems company fully dedicated to increasing efficiency — and efficient energy use — for their clients, this solar investment was a logical step in aligning their energy stewardship with the products they produce. Their specialists create systems that generate heat energy with the best available technology, allowing their customers to reduce emissions and conserve resources on a daily basis.

“We spend quite a bit of time making sure that our technology works efficiently, effectively, and with the lowest possible emissions levels. We want every ounce of our customers’ energy to be maximized. By working with Renewvia to install solar technology at our facility, we start the process — and the impact — from the ground up.” said Jeff Ackel, of Sigma Thermal.

Sigma Thermal offers two distinct technologies for clients looking to reduce waste and renewables: biomass-fired energy systems and waste heat recovery systems. Sigma Thermal also incorporates the best available emissions technologies into its fired process heater products to ensure compliance with any client’s environmental targets. As a renowned industry leader, the heat management experts at Sigma Thermal provide complete packaged systems and parts, plus all aspects of design, manufacturing, and installation.
