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.
R.A.K. Ceramics P.J.S.C. is a United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) Public Shareholding Company was established in 1989 and is one of the world's leading producers of high-quality ceramic wall & floor tiles, Sanitary ware and Grès Porcelain stoneware, Gres porcelain slabs, vitreous china sanitary wares, acrylic baths, and shower bases.
Implementing energy efficiency projects this decade is critical to the world achieving a low carbon transition and mitigating climate change.
