Clarke Energy will be exhibiting at the 17th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG) from 20th – 23rd March’ 2022 being held at International Convention Centre, Bashundhara (ICCB) in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Reports suggest that Bangladesh is one of the fastest growing economies in South Asia. The Government of Bangladesh now aims to achieve the status of a “middle income country” by 2021. It is well known that energy is a key indicator of a developing nation’s overall industrial as well as economic and social development. The performance of Bangladesh’s power sector in the last five years has been impressive due to the efforts of the policy makers, support from developing partners and effective project implementation by public and private developers. Natural gas continues to dominate, meeting 56% of domestic energy demand. However, with industries incurring higher cost of natural gas, the focus is now on “Do more with less (OPEX and CAPEX)”. INNIO’s myPlant APM is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM)-diagnostic, industrial Internet of Things solution for reciprocating engines and generators, which will provide industries with a digital toolset to manage its equipment fleet. It is aimed at improving uptime and efficiency, reducing life cycle costs and driving operating performance and profitability. The myPlant offering uses secure, centralized cloud storage to collect the data from customers’ gas based power generation, distribution and energy storage equipment, regularly transmitting sensor data streams, control alarms and operational data. With these real-time insights, user can make better decisions to reduce equipment downtime and operating costs.
With growth in economy over the last few years, Bangladesh has also witnessed great influx of village workforce to cities. Under the said circumstances, for sustainable MSW management, population and economy growth should be constructively transformed, because they are the major drivers of wastes generation. Around the world to ensure sustainable MSW management, four options are now considered, such as biological treatment, landfilling with energy recovery, recycling and thermal treatment, each having its own advantages and disadvantages. Waste treatment process generating energy in the form of electricity, heat, or transport fuels is considered as waste to energy (WtE) option. WtE for MSW management in Bangladesh can be a viable option for alternative and renewable electricity generation. Such strategy will also avoid significant GHG emissions by replacing the equivalent fossil fuels electricity. Moreover, deploying WtE strategy will help Bangladesh to move towards zero waste society and to adopt circular economy principle at the national level.
