PopisInnovative solutions to measure moisture in energy and waste treatment processes
POD Reference TRFR20140417001
French company active in energy and environment sectors is looking for innovative solutions to measure moisture in its operation processes. It's a challenge to optimise the processes in energy sector and in biological waste treatment. Collaboration is sought for license agreements, technical cooperation, commercial agreement with tecnical assistance or services agreement.
In many of the company's activities, matrice humidity is a key parameter for the management of the operations. For example, in the energy sector, the water content of the fuel is a parameter used in the regulations of some manufacturers to manage the settings of a biomass boiler. But it is also essential for verifying if the measured LCV (Lower Calorific Value) of the fuel delivered is compliant with that ordered. For biological treatment of waste, moisture determines the proper operation of equipment such as screens or presses and especially the smooth operation process of organic matter degradation (compost).
As quality of measurement (speed and accuracy) is a key parameter for the optimization of its activities, the company is looking for innovative solutions.
The company seeks partners for license agreements, technical cooperation, commercial agreement with tecnical assistance or services agreement.
