China and India struggling to meet demand for coal. Coal stockpiles dangerously low.

India's coal-fired power sector is under tremendous pressure. It has been reported that nearly 30% of Indian coal fired power plants are currently at "critical" levels. Coal stockpiles are running very low.

 
PRLog - Dec. 6, 2010 - India isn't the only major coal reliant nation facing a shortage. China's Ministry of Railway recently announced they're experiencing hard challenges to supply to Chinese coal-fired power plants across China.

China's Coal Ministry is placing more than 2600 additional coal trains in order to deliver needed coal. Government sources said coal stockpiles at 349 Chinese power plants have "dropped to the danger mark or even below it."

India's coal problems are driven by a huge demand and high prices. China is having an unusually cold winter, and new government programs set to conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions are forcing plant shut downs despite growing demand for power.

Coal use is increasing due to further urbanization, supported by new construction starts. China needs steel, India needs cement, and Asia’s major cities need coal to fuel their power supply.

There is an estimated 1.6 billion tpa of coal currently supplied to Asia’s smaller Industrial Boiler market, with more than 2 million small boilers scattered across Asia.

India and China, the two fastest growing coal-consuming countries must do all they can to save on precious coal. Coal is their most abundant but challenged fuel resource.

Why is coal challenged?
Coal prices are steadily increasing. In China this week sub-bituminous coal with calorific value of 5,800 kcal/kg costs more than $112.00 per metric tonne. Coal prices are expected to climb as we enter the hot summer months and with much of China experiencing a severe drought - hydroelectric power is severely hampered.

How to save on Coal use?
Asia Coal Catalyst Company offers CC-88 Coal Combustion Catalyst to Save on coal usage in India, China and across Asia.

CC-88 is a tried and proven Fireside Chemical Treatment (FCT) developed in the USA and now being used in China’s Sichuan and Shandong Provinces.

CC-88 is applicable to all types of Coal combustion systems needing to improve energy efficiency. Many of China's aging industrial boiler systems are inhibited by slagging and fouling. As hard carbon deposits on the inside of a boiler the slag inhibits heat transfer, which reduces fuel efficiency.

CC-88 works to soften existing hard carbon deposits and help prevent new slag formation. Ass CC-88 Combustion Catalyst works its way through the boiler system it will help combust wasted carbon fuel that is collecting in the cold end of the boiler. As the cold end soot deposits, soot blowers and other slag removal devices removed remaining soot more thoroughly and efficiently, this also lowers the load on pollution control devices (electrostatic precipitators)

CC-88 will reduce fuel consumption by as much as 5% - 15% percent depending on the type of boiler, the boiler efficiency, the type of coal burned and the thermodynamics of the system.

CC-88 is designed to pay for itself through fuel savings and by helping to significantly reduce costs of boiler maintenance. Poor performing boilers are subjected to unscheduled shutdowns for removal of slag and due to fouling; sometimes resulting in costly equipment repairs.

CC-88 Coal Catalyst improves coal combustion and reduces harmful emission of wasted black carbon fuel (soot). CC-88 Coal Catalyst improves energy efficiency and reduces your operating costs.

Asia Coal Catalyst is dedicated to providing our customers with the least expensive method to burn raw coal in the cleanest and most cost effective method.
CC-88 Combustion Catalyst dramatically improves boiler efficiency by optimizing combustion conditions and improving boiler heat transfer. Return on users investment is achieved by utilizing all available carbon in the fuel, improving equipment performance and lowering operating costs.


Our product, CC-88, is a dry powder that can either be injected into
the boiler to provide a catalyst “bed” in the combustion chamber, or
it can be fed continuously along with the fuel.
In the United States it has been widely used in industrial boilers for
central heating systems.

How does Coal Catalyst work? Coal Catalyst CC-88 accelerates the oxidation-
reaction of carbon to produce more heat per unit time. Coal
Catalyst CC-88 Oxidizes carbon at temperatures lower than normal
ignition temperatures, this speeds combustion and thereby reduces
carbon and slag deposits in the colder regions of the boiler.

As a Slag Modifier, CC-88 alters slag deposits to a more friable, softer
easy to remove deposit that provides greater heat-transfer and reduces
cleaning costs. The catalyst will also acts as an Emission Control
Agent that separates sulfur substantially reducing the quantity
of sulfur dioxide, an “acid rain” contributor, in the flue gases. Fly Ash
reductions also occur when greater amounts of carbon are com busted reducing the loading to the particulate collection devices.

Improving coal combustion efficiencies through a simple and cost
effective means such as our Coal Catalyst CC-88 will help conserve
valuable fuel resources.

Coal Catalyst also cleans the system of Slagging and Carbon Waste
making equipment operate more efficiently with less maintenance
costs. Use of Coal Catalyst CC-88 will allow longer and better operation
of the older and less efficient boilers equipment. Coal Catalyst
CC-88 helps China’s many thousands of inefficient older small and
medium sized boilers to run more efficiently and to reduce their pollution.
ACCC products are very strategic. Our Coal Catalyst pays for itself
through improvements to the combustion efficiency. The product
meets a critical need in a very cost effective way. Coal Catalyst helps
to enable the many hundreds of thousands of Asia’s small – medium
(.5Mwe - 100 Mwe) boilers, the least efficient stoker fired coal
burning boilers to burn their precious fuel mush more thoroughly,
utilizing more of the available carbon fuel contained in the coal and
reducing carbon waste which is currently emitted as harmful carbon
filled smoke stack emissions.

Asia has a large system of coal fired boilers under 100 MWe in size
that are currently operating at fairly low combustion efficiencies and
have slagging and fouling problems. Both of these problems cause
excess amounts of pollution to be emitted into the atmosphere and
consume greater quantities of coal than is necessary. With the use of
our CC-88 Coal Catalyst, more efficient boilers can be obtained and
lower levels of pollution can be achieved.

ASIA COAL CATALYST COMPANY (ACCC) provides combustion
catalysts and additives for use with coal, heavy oils and diesel fuels.
These products offer an inexpensive and easy-to-use way to effect
more rapid and complete combustion of fossil fuels. Improved
combustion efficiencies result is less pollution, improved efficiency
(more heat per unit of fuel) and lower equipment maintenance
costs.
