From our longstanding experience in corrosive straw fuel handling, DP has extended its expertise to over 60 fuel types. In particular, our knowledge of complex fuels such as rice husk, coconut waste; sugar cane leaves and other fuels common in emerging markets is unparalleled.
Complex fuels tend to become highly corrosive when subjected to high pressure, high temperature conditions, leading to equipment corrosion and underperforming plants. DP’s understanding of a fuel’s characteristics and combustion behaviour ensures that the design of the boiler and materials will maximize the lifetime and efficiency of a plant. DP has designed and built the world’s first “all-coconut” waste plant in Thailand which has been operating successfully since April 2016.
