RJM International of the UK and ECOMB of Sweden announce today a co-operative partnership to offer a combined range of combustion and emissions improvement technologies to combustion plants across Scandinavia
RJM International, the award-winning provider of innovative combustion and efficiency improvement technologies and ECOMB, the Swedish provider of a range of emissions reduction technologies, announce today a new partnership to target combustion plants and heat producers across Scandinavia. A new Sales Manager, David Eriksson, has been appointed to lead this sales drive.
As governments the world over implement legislation to decarbonise their economies, adding a further layer of emissions reduction regulations on top of those relating to NOx, SOx and particulates, combustion plants are looking at how they can maintain profitable and reliable generation in this new carbon-constrained world.
Co-firing with a new fuel or fuel switching are two of the main strategies that generators are now evaluating.
However, for smaller generators and CHP plants, many of which do not have in-depth combustion expertise in-house, such as pulp & paper plants, district heating schemes, biomass and Waste to Energy plants and other industrial users of on-site heat & power, a change in fuel has the potential to introduce a number of new operational challenges around materials handling, combustion, the formation of slag, corrosion, erosion, emissions and ash.
Having access to the combined expertise of RJM and ECOMB means that these plants can embark upon a carbon and emissions reduction strategy with confidence, secure in the knowledge that their plant will continue to operate reliably and with increased efficiencies, post-conversion.
Commenting on the co-operative partnership, Dr. Gerry Riley, Head of Business Development at RJM said, “We recognise the challenges that all types of combustion plant are now facing and using our experience from the UK, we believe that we have a compelling offer to support generators as they transition to lower carbon, lower emission generation.
Teaming up with ECOMB means we can offer a combined range of products and services and have a dedicated sales and implementation capability throughout Scandinavia,” he added.
Ulf Hagström, Managing Director of ECOMB confirmed, “We also know that all types of combustion plant are urgently seeking to evaluate new fuels and adopt new technologies to maintain profitable and reliable operation and yet still meet ever-tightening emissions limits. ECOMB, working with RJM is ideally-placed to satisfy this growing demand and we are confident that our combined offer has useful applications across the sector, no matter what the fuel, the firing configuration or the size of the plant.”
To drive sales in the region, RJM and ECOMB have appointed a new Sales Manager, David Eriksson who joins from Oerlikon Balzers (Sweden Coating AB). David worked for ECOMB in a previous role and is therefore very familiar with the company and its products.
