Boosting local waste management

January 13, 2021, Espoo, Vaasa - Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) and WOIMA Finland Oy (WOIMA) have signed an agreement to deliver the modular wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy plants. SFW becomes a strategic investor in WOIMA, combining SFW’s renowned expertise in power technology, project execution and global reach with WOIMA’s innovative plant design.
December 9, 2020 - Nearly all forecasts predict that most of the electricity produced in the world will be from intermittent solar and wind resources by 2050. While wind and solar plants currently make up 18% of the world’s installed electric power capacity this number is expected to grow to nearly 70% by 2050 (Figure 1). Although some new solid fuel, hydro and nuclear plants will be built over this same period, an equal amount is expected to be retired, effectively keeping their net contribution to the world’s power capacity at about the same level as today.
December 1, 2020 - The inexorable growth of wind and solar in the power generation mix is presenting challenges to electricity system operators around the world. Although crucial to reducing global carbon emissions, their variable nature calls for the integration of other technologies into the system that can rapidly compensate for the sudden loss of power in the grid that can occur when there is no wind or sun.
December 1, 2020 - The global energy technology company and the Swedish technology company SaltX are partnering to upscale a new solution that can store ten times more heat energy with the same footprint compared to the conventional hot water storages.
October 8, 2020 - Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) has been awarded a contract by SAPPI Europe to modernize an existing circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler, which will result in a 30% CO2 emissions reduction at the Gratkorn Pulp & Paper mill.
September 30, 2020 - Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) licensee Isgec Heavy Industries was recently awarded its first order for a Semi-Dry FGD (Circulating Fluidised Bed Scrubbers) system in India from Hindalco Industries Limited.
July 22, 2020 - CRYOBattery technology makes use of a freely available resource— air—which is cooled and stored as a liquid and then converted back into a pressurized gas which drives turbines to produce electricity. Just as pumped-hydro harnesses the power of water, the CRYOBattery unleashes the power of air.
July 16, 2020 - Today, we see intermittent renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, as a vital component needed to transform the world’s global energy infrastructure toward a clean and sustainable energy delivery system. But due to their intermittent nature, grid operators and power generators are facing growing challenges for maintaining power grid stability and power quality with increasing levels of wind and solar power.
