Tamijuddin Textile Mills Reduce Waste and Increase Energy Efficiency

Across all industries, energy-saving issues are taking center stage as there is a focus on reducing energy consumption to mitigate the impact the industrial sector has on energy consumption and subsequent emission of harmful greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide (CO2).

Combined heat and power (CHP) system offers a way to reduce energy waste in the industry helping reduce costs and overall fuel consumption. Across the entire textile industry, energy is consumed in a variety of ways at all stages of the production process. Steam is used in each of the various stages, particularly in the areas of dyeing, printing, and finishing (wet processes).

With the intent of optimizing the CHP system – having fewer losses in the process of transmission and distribution of electricity and heat, Tamijuddin Textile Mills Limited decided to evaluate natural gas-based cogeneration plant using reciprocating gas engine technology for their manufacturing unit at Gazipur, Bangladesh.

Mr. Md. Sharifuzzaman – Manager Sales Clarke Energy Bangladesh Limited:
“Combined heat and power (CHP) systems are characterized by the simultaneous reduction of useful heat and electricity from the same energy source. However, when the energy and heat are transferred, a large amount of this can be wasted. Therefore, it is crucial that CHP power plants are located close to the target users for efficient energy consumption. Industrial power plants, like the one we, Clarke Energy Bangladesh Limited have installed at Tamijuddin Textile Mills using Jenbacher gas engine technology are ideal for such facilities as they require a constant source of electricity and heat and minimize any loss in energy transfer”

Energy-efficient CHP systems optimize energy consumption in the textile industry. This is particularly important where fossil fuels are still used as an energy source as limiting pollution problems will offer considerable advantages including energy management, cost, and investment reduction, and most importantly improving the environmental impact.

To increase overall efficiency of their manufacturing plant, Tamijuddin Textile Mills Limited decided to implement natural gas-based cogeneration plant using highly efficient INNIO’s Jenbacher JMS 420 GS NL natural gas gensets of total capacity 6MWe.

In addition to enhancing the power generation capabilities of the mill, this system combines products marketed by two manufacturers that can use the waste heat of a gas engine to efficiently convert hot water into steam. More specifically, the new system combines waste heat recovery boiler to recover waste heat from the exhaust of gas engine to efficiently convert hot water into low-pressure steam.
