Jupiter presents its ‘Oxy-Fuel Combustion Technology’ at the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (AP6) meeting


Jupiter’s Oxy-Fuel Combustion Technology: The Pathway for Immediate Clean Development Action In The Asia-Pacific Aluminum Recycling Industry…

Transfer of existing technologies to developing countries could considerably save energy and reduce emissions from their business-as-usual trends in the short term. The Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate, in particular, will focus on voluntary practical measures and best-practice technologies. The AP6 will create new investment opportunities, build local capacity, and remove barriers to the introduction of clean, more efficient technologies.

Jupiter Aluminum Corp. together with Jupiter Oxygen Corp. are presenting an advanced combustion technology for re-melting aluminum with significant results in energy savings and emission reduction. Jupiter’s oxy-fuel combustion technology is a patented process for combustion of fossil fuels with oxygen while excluding air.

Data for the U.S. shows a projected “energy efficiency savings opportunity” of 58% of energy used considering year 2004 average energy use per pound re-melted [SECAT, 2004]. In fact, Jupiter’s oxy-fuel combustion technology today is achieving this projection for continuous runs! When future increasing aluminum recycling energy needs in the Asia-Pacific Partnership are viewed the retrofit of aluminum recycling facilities with this oxy-fuel technology offers a tremendous potential of energy savings and emission reductions at favorable costs. The presentation shows the technical, economic and environmental aspects of oxy-fuel technology implementation and the chances for developing local markets in the Asia-Pacific-Partnership.
