Project Brief

The main objective of the project is to increase the overall energy efficiency of the RAK Ceramic facility and minimize the energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions associated with operating spray dryers. To maximize the energy efficiency of the ceramic manufacturing process is achieved by installing two cogeneration units that produce waste heat that can be utilized in the ceramic production line, which is currently released into the atmosphere.

The cogeneration ceramic application process utilizes the gas turbine exhaust air in the ceramic spray dryer by bringing high heat into the drying process and generating electricity for the facility. A gas turbine connected to a spray dryer increases the process efficiency from 27-32% to 75-90%, which minimizes natural gas consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions.
