Reduction of Greenhouse Gases Emissions Due to Energy Efficiency Improvements and Waste Heat Utilization at JSC “Ukrgrafit”

The purpose of the project is the increased efficiency of the energy resources use through waste heat utilization and the reduction of energy resources consumption accompanied by greenhouse gases emission reductions.

Within project boundaries three exhaust boilers will be installed for waste energy utilization from carbon fillers calcination furnaces. Heat energy, which is now being wasted, will be used for covering heat demand of the Enterprise and will substitute heat energy (steam), which would have been generated by coal fired boilers in the absence of the project activity.

Besides, project foresees reduction in energy resources consumption (electricity and natural gas), due to reconstruction of furnaces, electrocalcinators and other energy-efficiency improvement measures.
