Our solutions provide peace of mind for any industry

Filter group companies has constructed decades gas engine cogeneration plants with over 400 engine units for different industries, such as: food &beverage, tyre manufacturing, automotive industry and greenhouses.

  • Agriculture & Food processing

    Using biogas from the fermentation of organic waste in agriculture, food and beverage production, and other industries, you can efficiently create heat and power as a reliable alternative energy source to power your business

    • Yield highly efficient, onsite combined heat and power generation.
    • Harness organic waste as an alternative energy source.
    • Use remaining substrate as nutrient-rich fertilizer.
    • Potentially reduce greenhouse gas emission.
    • Avoid the need to dispose of biowaste.
  • Wastewater treatment

    Water treatment processes in waste water treatment plants (WWTP) include energy-intense operations, such as aeration and pumping. In plants that employ anaerobic digestion for biosolids treatment the sewage gas that is produced can be used to produce electricity. Using modern gas engines, this renewable energy source can efficiently and reliably be converted into electricity. This can cover up to 80% (100%) of a plant’s electricity needs and eliminate the need to use fossil fuels to heat the plant.

    Gas produced in anaerobic digesters from municipal WWTPs generally contains 55% to 65% methane and has a typical heating value of 6 kWh/Nm3. As a general rule, approximately 1 MW of electricity can be generated from the biosolids of waste water treated from approximately 500,000 population equivalents.

    Jenbacher gas engines high electrical efficiencies provide renewable energy solutions and are robustly designed to handle the variable nature of sewage gas. Our extensive portfolio of engine sizes and outputs allow project designers and operators to properly match fuel availability with the engine ensuring maximum energy production, long-term reliability and the highest possible budget savings.

  • Greenhouses

    Jenbacher technology is fueling life itself, in greenhouses growing food and other plants. The benefits of cogeneration for greenhouses go well beyond heating and lighting.

    A global increase in both food demand and environmental awareness has led to a rapid rise in the greenhouse horticulture industry. That is because greenhouses today have the ability to simultaneously increase the viability of their crops and effectively control carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Jenbacher technology can provide you with heat, electricity and CO2 fertilization, increasing your greenhouse’s total efficiency, profitability and plant production.

    Jenbacher combined heat and power (CHP) systems not only provide electricity for on-site or public grid use, but also heat and CO2 to fertilize plants and meet the requirements of an efficient greenhouse. By increasing the intensity of the artificial lighting that is found in some greenhouses, plants absorb even more CO2. Plant growth and the subsequent harvest yield can be significantly increased by enriching the greenhouse environment with CO2, keeping the temperature constant, and providing sufficient lighting.

    The energy created by gas engine cogeneration systems in greenhouses can be used in various ways. The electricity can provide the power for artificial lighting and/or be fed into the public grid. And while the heat can efficiently meet the greenhouse’s requirements, the CO2
    from the engine exhaust gas can help fertilize the plants. That is because the exhaust from gas engines burning natural gas contains approximately 0.2kg of CO2 per kWh of energy input.

  • Data centres

    You can bring down emissions significantly by replacing the conventional electric-driven cooling compressors now used in data centers with combined onsite power generation. Our technology uses the generated waste heat with individual solutions based on absorption chillers, heat pumps and other waste heat recovery solutions. When fueled with highly reliable pipeline gas, Jenbacher CCHP systems can cut your data center’s CO2 footprint by up to 50%—depending on the energy mix—while saving more than 20% of the primary energy used.

    In a Jenbacher trigeneration plant, the engine continuously provides electrical power, efficiently and reliably. The waste heat it generates can be used in an absorption chiller to produce continuous, energy-efficient cooling. Because they have no moving parts, absorption chillers are very reliable and represent the technology of choice for continuous operation.

  • Commercial & industrial buildings

    CHP generation saves approximately 40% of fuel compared to separate generation, and building CHP systems where or near they are used avoids significant supply and distribution losses. Jenbacher industrial gas engines can generate CHP efficiencies up to 90%. Now that’s intelligent.

    The basic structure of a Jenbacher cogeneration system, installed inside the building, usually includes an engine/generator unit and heat exchangers that use waste heat. A wide range of heat sources—from engine cooling water and oil to an air/fuel gas mixture and exhaust gas—can be configured for each individual customer application. Jenbacher solutions deliver flexible power generation and a high degree of reliability and availability to meet energy needs of our industrial and commercial customers.

    Jenbacher CHP modules can be also packaged into containers. As an option, we can supply Jenbacher ready-to-use containerized gas gensets. Jenbacher gas power plants in containers allow our commercial and industrial customers to start using the benefits of onsite power generation quickly.

  • Independent power producers & utilities

    Electricity is a fundamental necessity for all independent power producers, utility companies, manufacturers, municipalities, and industrial operations like chemical and textile producers. To meet this need, Jenbacher is redefining the limits of power and performance with a broad distributed power portfolio of packages for power generation.

  • Automotive industry

    Many chemical reactions in manufacturing processes release heat. Efficient cooling is necessary to maintain the desired temperature and control reaction rates. Cooling towers and condensers help manage the heat generated during chemical processes.

    In the automotive industry, reliability, simple operation, high efficiency levels and low emissions are all critical aspects of energy conversion, not just for the end products that convert fuel to mobility, but also the supply chain that manufactures those products.

    Combined Heat and Power (CHP), or cogeneration, dependably generates onsite electric power while capturing thermal energy from the combustion of renewable and fossil fuels and applies it towards thermal processes like heating and chilling. This makes CHP applications in the automotive industry a much more efficient process than dual-source heat and power generation, where most of the thermal energy produced is simply lost through the stacks of large power plants. Further, some electrical energy is lost through the transmission and distribution of that energy across long distances. For these reasons, globally, nearly two-thirds of all the fuel used in power generation is wasted. Fuel efficiency means energy cost savings.
