The ever increasing prices of Industrial Fuels have been felt acutely in various industrial sectors which is directly affecting the economic competitiveness, especially energy intensive industries. Switching to alternate fuels is an important solution to this problem, both long term conversion to other fuels and short term fuel flexibility, which allows switching between fuels as and when required as per the market conditions and availability.
For various reasons like non-availability of the currently used fuel, cost of the existing fuel vs. alternate fuel, due to the economics of substituting to a cheaper fuel, many industries are looking for switching over from one fuel to other. But the technical fundamentals are less known to the industry managements like the combustion aspects, the primary and secondary air requirements, dimensioning the combustion chambers etc. In the event of the industry wanting to go for substitution, they have to only depend on the system proposed by the supplier and due to lack of knowledge the industry management is unable to evaluate the supplier’s technologies for its appropriateness.
Fuel Switching is also identified as one of the energy cost reduction scheme which the energy intensive industries should look into, especially in view of achieving the upcoming target for reducing Specific Energy Consumption initiated by Bureau of Energy Efficiency under the Perform Achieve and Trade (PAT) Scheme. In view of the above, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) proposes to conduct two seminars (2 day each) on Technical Meet on Industrial Fuel Switching with a focus on the technical issues involved in switching fuel like from coal to gas, oil to gas, coal to bio-mass, bio-mass to gas, etc. for various equipments like industrial boiler, furnaces, ovens, dryers etc.
