Recycling Scheme

We are pleased to report that we will continue to manage the Loseley Park Recycling Scheme for another year until September 2015. The Scheme has been operating under our management since 2006 with the current 'Bring-Your-Own' approach in place since 2010. The 10 member organizations bring and segregate Dry Mixed Recyclables, Paper and Cardboard into separate  bins whose contents are recycled. The Scheme has been very successful with an estimated 27 tonnes of materials recycled and diverted from landfill in the period 2006 to mid-2014.

2013 in Review: New Technology & New Markets

SantaComing to the end of 2013 we look back on a year that has seen a number of changes in the power generation sector, based partly on Government policy shifts, but also on market conditions. These have opened up several new possibilities for KRR Prostream, which we have been working hard to develop.

We are now successfully applying Mobile PWT in CCGT plants, something that our counterparts in Europe have been doing for some time.  Our technology is used to remove oxidisation and deposits from the HRSG (Heat Recovery Steam Generator) with significant and near instantaneous benefits to overall plant efficiency.

We have also been exploring new techniques for applying our Heat Exchanger Cleaning technology to glass tube heat exchangers, thereby broadening the range of plants where this service can be of benefit.

2013 has also seen KRR ProStream expand beyond our traditional clientele of EfW and power generation facilities, carrying out work at paper manufacturing and recycling facilities.

With these new plant cleaning methodologies at our disposal, new markets to explore and a healthy outlook for the capital sales side of the business, we are optimistic about 2014.  The recession may not be entirely over, but energy will continue to grow as an industry and the demand for ways to reduce production costs, improve efficiencies and avoid boiler down time will grow alongside it.

We wish all our clients and suppliers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

KRR ProStream Supports Local Environmental Charity

Guildford Environmental ForumThe team at KRR ProStream are delighted to be supporting one of our local charities, the Guildford Environmental Forum, via the donation of some IT equipment.

The Guildford Environmental Forum (GEF) has been in existence for more than 20 years, raising awareness around a range of environmental issues from recycling and waste management though to energy efficiency and sustainable building practices.  In addition to organising talks and forging links with other local organisations, the GEF also lends practical support to a wide range of community projects, including ongoing work to reduce the environmental impact of Guildford's public buildings and transport systems.

John Bannister is the GEF Executive Officer for Schools, Renewable Energy and Community Projects.  He said,

"Our mission has always been to raise awareness about climate change, the need to reduce our use of fossil fuels and the use of the earth's other resources, and to safeguard wildlife for future human generations. We do this through strong links with similar organisations and businesses, tracking technology, arranging interesting speakers on related topics and implementing community projects.

"The gift of KRR...is greatly appreciated and will help to improve our operational effectiveness."

We hope that this will be the start of a new relationship between KRR ProStream and the GEF, and we are already looking forward to joining them 'in the field' on one of their forthcoming community projects.  Watch this space for more information!

Optimistic Outlook for UK EfW at RWM 2012

Robin Presents at RWM2012

We have just returned from RWM 2012 and firstly we would like to thank everybody who came to visit us on our stand or attended our session in the Technology and Innovation Theatre.  It was a pleasure to meet you all and we hope that you found our services interesting.

One of the best things about this year's event was the sense of excitement about the future of the UK EfW industry.  Everybody we spoke to was optimistic about the prospects for growth and investment in the sector, and was encouraged by the fact that the drive for expansion and technological advancement that has always characterised commercial interests is finally receiving some very welcome political support.

There is already evidence that independent foreign money is picking up on the growth potential of our industry and beginning to look for opportunities.  We can only hope that our own banks will catch on too and give our operators the support they need to expand their role as an essential component of the UK energy mix.

We hope your experience of RWM 2012 matched our own and look forward to seeing you at next year's event.  If in the meantime you would like to discuss any of our services then please do get in touch.

New Case Study Uploaded

We would like to draw your attention to our Case Studies section, where we have recently uploaded the first case study to feature on our new website. 

This particular case study focuses on our Filter Bag Cleaning service, as delivered at a UK EfW facility.  Another new case study featuring our Mobile PWT is currently being prepared and will be uploaded soon.

You can read our case studies online, or download them in PDF format.  To download the latest case study direct from this page, please click here.

KRR ProStream to Deliver Seminar at RWM 2012

Robin Buller, responsible for business development strategy at KRR ProStream, will be delivering a seminar in the Technology and Innovation Theatre at this year's RWM show.  Taking place at 3pm on Tuesday 11th September, the seminar will discuss how the latest innovations in cleaning and monitoring technology can help to optimise electricity production in biomass and Energy-from-Waste (EfW) generation plants, and also help operators to meet their regulatory obligations with regard to greenhouse gas emissions.

Robin's presentation will answer the following questions:

  • How much more effective are the latest automated online cleaning technologies compared to traditional methods?
  • What other advantages are there in terms of time, safety, cost-effectiveness, etc?
  • How can the performance improvements delivered by the latest cleaning methods be measured and related to key performance indicators such as electricity production and emissions?

In addition to Robin's contribution in the Innovation and Technology Theatre, KRR ProStream will also be exhibiting on Stand 06P03.  A number of online cleaning and inspection technologies will be available for visitors to view, including the KRR View High Temperature Inspection Camera and mobile monitor/recording station, KRR Online Heat Exchanger Cleaning equipment, and some 'before-and-after' examples of baghouse filters that have undergone the KRR Online Filter Bag Cleaning process.

Anticipating the event, Robin said:

'At KRR ProStream we are focused on the delivery of services that help plant operators to maximise the performance of their facility and avoid any unscheduled downtime.  A clean plant is an efficient plant, and an efficient plant will process more waste, generate more revenue and produce fewer emissions.  However, we appreciate that in this day and age plant operators and managers need to be able to quantify exactly what benefits they are deriving from the cleaning services we can provide.  

'In order both to track the overall performance of a facility and to ensure that value is being achieved, we place an equal emphasis on the importance of observation and monitoring, focusing on key performance indicators and presenting what can be a bewildering array of data in a format that can be easily understood, even by non-technical personnel.  In my seminar I am going to look more closely at precisely what we monitor, how we use the data, and what it can tell us.'

RWM 2012 takes place at the Birmingham NEC from 11th to 13th September inclusive.
