In the first quarter of the 20th century, we imported our first fully German plant and production of CO2 has been our passion, pride and core business since then.
We use the technology to generate CO2 from waste
An important technique adopted by our company is extracting carbon dioxide from biomasses. We were the first to introduce this technology in this world. We have today set up various plants that successfully operate on biomass. We are constantly reviewing and studying different design innovations in our plant so that we can also extract CO2 from other wastes, besides biogas, like fertilizer gases, breweries and distilleries. Our flue gas plant uses raw material like boiler or any furnace flue gas, thereby reducing the cost of using any other costly liquid fuel.
Our options and capacities
Our CO2 gas plants can also run on other options like:
- Waste Hard Coke
- Nut Coke
- Pearl Coke
- Breeze Coke
Types of CO2 gas plants
We manufacture two types of CO2 gas plants:
- Generating Plants: These plants run due to combustion of various fossil fuels including heavy oil, diesel oil, kerosene or natural gas depending upon availability & pricing. Through appropriate combustion of the fuel, scrubbing, stripping and separation technology, the CO2 gas thus conforms to strictest CO2 quality standards. We supply our plants with a special control panel that ensures continuous and trouble-free operation.
- Recycling Plant:These are extraction plants which operate depending on CO2 in the gas sources from turbines, combustion engines, boilers, chemical processes and natural sources. Our CO2 extraction/recovery plant proves an effective alternative to a conventional CO2 production plant.
The injection of Carbon-Di-Oxide does the following :
- Reduces the viscosity of the oil and allows it to come out and flow easily.
- The C02 gas mixes with the oil like water and the oil becomes carbonated and expands forcing the oil to come out of the tight openings in the rock and to waiting extraction wells
- The mixture of oil and Carbon-Di-Oxide also dissolves some rock thus making it more porous which results in more yield of oil.
Since the quantity of CO2 used in the wells is considerable and hence one can be sure of getting
Carbon Credits : The oil well can be used for storing CO2 or we can say underground disposal of CO2 . This gives rise to possibility of use of CO2 at a latter period when we wish. Thus this fulfills dual role of increasing oil production and storing CO2 & definitely we can dispose of carbon now each carbon credits.
There are many examples in the world to obtain Carbon-Di-Oxide from various sources and to carry and use Carbon-Di-Oxide on the well head, for better recovery of oil.
CO2 from Chemical Reactions : Many a time one has the requirement not to fill the big cylinders from the storage tank but to fill small cylinder / CO2 extinguishers / cartridge from big cylinders. In such eventuality the revert gas is not important as the quantities concerned is not big. What is needed is accurately that the liquid goes into a small cylinder and semi automatically / automatically switched off the supply, as soon as the required quantity is filled in the small cylinder.
S. S. Gas Lab Asia is now dealing with such a installation. Following illustration clearly shows the system :-
The complete unit consists of a motor driven transfer pump, an optional for 27 kg supply cylinders and the necessary hose arrangements and valves to connect the pump to the supply and the necessary liquid must be supplied to the pump. If the supply cylinder valve connects into the vapor spare of the cylinder, the cylinder must be turned bottom up. The tilt rack serves this purpose. If the supply cylinder is of siphon type then the rack is not required. Such cylinder must be tied securely to a wall or post.
The weighing scale is also included in the system. We are in the process of developing automatic system which enables to switch off the supply of CO2 once the small cylinder has been filled with the desired quantity of the gas.
Bio Gas can be generated from various sources. The material should not contain metal, sand, mitti, stone and polythene etc. Cow dung besides others like kitchen / canteen kachra is used extensively in India. Feas from birds like cocks and hens are used in some countries.
All sources almost go to generate biogas in the generator where it is generally mixed with water. The reaction to generate biogas takes place quickly in summer and some what slowly in winter. Generally, the biogas is associated with H2S and consists of CO2 and CH4.
H2S must be removed to use the gas chemically. Many people use the gas as it is in the power generation or for cooking. H2S is removed with the help of scrubbing media placed inside a scrubber. Generally, the biogas contains 55 - 70% CH4 30-45% C02, 0.1 - 0.5% H2S and traces of Hydrogen and ammonia. We have the technology to remove H2S and CO2, get pure 98% CH4.
