LA SEDA DE BARCELONA launches a project to optimize the group's production processes

| Management | La Seda de Barcelona | Barcelona, Spain

Now in March LA SEDA DE BARCELONA is about to finish the building of the new polygeneration plant –Artenius Prat factory in El Prat de Llobregat, which is expected to be opertional by April. With the new polygeneration plant will reduce energy costs by 30% -about 3 million euros a year - and a primary energy savings (PES) and atmosphere pollutant emissions by 15%, equivalent to a reduction of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere of about 6,000 tonnes per annum. At the same time, LA SEDA DE BARCELONA has begun to explore the applicability of similar future projects of polygeneration mainly in ARTENIUS PET division: San Roque (Spain), Wilton (UK), San Giorgio (Italy) and Volos (Greece ). The Seda Group is considering the transfer of the Artenius-Prat experience to other subsidiaries of the Group precisely for the significant energy savings and environmental enhancement offered by this technology and consequently a more efficient use of energy resources. A notable decline in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere should also be added to the above advantages, one of the main gases to cause greenhouse effects. This plant goes a step beyond cogeneration as not only will it produce electricity, steam and cold water but also and mainly heat in the form of thermic oil, That is why it has been called Polygeneration plant. Moreover, a new system for using the waste heat from the gas turbine hot gas that allows to keep the two conventional boilers of the plant and generate steam in them without any fuel input. The innovative configuration of the plant, previously designed by EASA -company that introduced the Cogeneration in Spain and has almost 100 Cogeneration projects on its reference list - it is based on gas turbine technology with DLE (Dry Low Emissions) 7.9 MWe ISO SIEMENS -one of the hallmark companies in this area - and a Heat Recovery Rail designed and built by the Spanish company GEAIBERIAN as part of GEA Group, European leader in the field of mechanical engineering and especially in the field of heat exchange.
