Regenerative Burners for Aluminium Melting Furnaces
- Representative Participant
- Toyotsu Machinery Corporation
Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity
Regenerative burners will be introduced to replace conventional single burners attached to the aluminium melting furnaces, so as to achieve energy efficiency in the automotive and motorcycle parts factory.
Regenerative burners are composed of a pair of burners, to reuse waste heat included in exhaust gas for combustion air preheating.
Expected GHG Emission Reductions
Potential: 170 thousand tCO2/yr
← Similar projects are to be implemented for the aluminium demand of 770kt/yr in 2020.
Site of JCM Project
Draft JCM Methodology
CO2 reduction is calculated along with the reduction of natural gas consumptions.
Between reference and project scenarios, energy consumption rates per unit of aluminium product are compared.
