B&W Claims Asian Emissions Control Contracts (Ind. Report)
Babcock & Wilcox
Date: 2021-07-28
Akron, Ohio-headquartered Babcock & Wilcox is reporting two contracts valued at more than $11 million to design and supply advanced technologies to reduce emissions and generate cleaner energy at an unnamed power plant in Asia.

B&W will upgrade the plant's existing combustion equipment, supplying a B&W AireJet ® low- nitrogen oxides (NOx) combustion system and other equipment to improve the unit's emissions and efficiency.

According to its website, Babcock & Wilcox has earned more than 90 patents for carbon capture over the past four decades, and has been a leader in decarbonization research and development. The company's revolutionary ClimateBright™ decarbonization technologies can effectively separate CO2 while producing hydrogen, steam and/or syngas -- and have application for a range of industries including energy production, food manufacturing, steel, cement, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, carbon black, and pulp and paper.

B&W, NREL Ink Renewable Energy Storage Agreement (Ind. Report)
Babcock & Wilcox
Date: 2021-07-12
Akron, Ohio-headquartered Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) and the U.S. DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are reporting an Intellectual Property Option Agreement that gives B&W field-limited exclusive rights to negotiate a licensing agreement that would allow B&W to market an advanced, particle-based thermal energy storage technology currently in development.

B&W is part of NREL's "Duration Addition to electricitY Storage" (DAYS) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) team, which is developing an innovative electric particle heater, pressurized fluidized-bed heat exchanger, a long-term thermal energy storage system that stores energy up to 100 hours, and other technologies to allow power producers to store solar or wind energy to generate grid-scale power..

"B&W's fluidized-bed heat exchanger will be able to generate up to 135 MW of power for up to 100 hours from stored clean thermal energy with zero CO2 emissions. By facilitating long-term storage of zero-carbon, renewable energy, this technology enables power producers to deliver power to the grid 24-hours a day, including during periods of peak demand, or when solar or wind are not optimal conditions," according to the B&W release.

B&W and NREL are also in discussions to develop a prototype heat exchanger that can be scaled-up for a pilot demonstration as part of NREL's Economic Long-Duration Electricity Storage Using Low-Cost Thermal Energy Storage and a High-Efficiency Power Cycle (ENDURING) project.
