Decarbonisation: what it means, what are the benefits for the future

Decarbonization is a safe and effective solution to improve the companies environment to ensure the ecological balance of our planet. This is necessity that today more than ever must be a shared commitment. The IBT Group makes its contribution through the offers of cogeneration and trigeneration solutions. Here’s what to know about it and what are the advantages!

The decarbonisation process: what it means

“Decarbonisation” refers to the process of reducing the carbon-hydrogen ratio in energy sources. In business, this term is used to refer to policies to reduce CO2 emissions in order to drastically reduce emissions into the atmosphere. This happens, for example, when a coal- or oil-fired power plant is converted into a new one that uses renewable energy sources. Using those low carbon energy sources contributes strongly to reduce as much as possible the current greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, a key element in the fight against climate change. To achieve this result, you can opt for different ways, such as choosing to use fossil fuels with a lower carbon content, replace where possible fossil fuels with renewable ones or opt for energy efficiency solutions, such as those proposed by IBT Group, which use the latest technologies to help companies to be more competitive in the market, in total respect for the planet. Thanks to the cogeneration and trigeneration plants, which exploit the patented oil-free technology of aeronautical origin of Capstone Green Energy and the absorption chillers of Century Corporation, it is possible to contain the consumption of primary energy and reduce the cost of the energy bill. This creates further significant advantages in terms of environmental sustainability: suffice it to say that the systems installed by IBT Group have the lowest emissions of all CHP systems, with NOx < 19mg/Nmc and CO < 50 mg/Nmc, well below the legal limits.

What is decarbonisation for?

Decarbonisation is a useful process to environmental impact, making the best use of available resources and, above all, opting for the least polluting ones possible. These choices lead, over time, to a reduction in the ratio between the emissions of a single country and the amount of energy consumed in the same period of time. To do this, it is necessary to opt for renewable energies, using fossil fuels with a reduced carbon content as an alternative, and to enhance energy efficiency. This is a strategy that must be shared at a local, national and international level, with changes on several fronts that – while requiring time and commitment – represent the only viable way to safeguard our planet.

What are the advantages for the future

The benefits of decarbonisation are all looking to the future: the more changes we make today to reduce our environmental impact and CO2 emissions , the more clean resources in balance with the needs of the planet we will have tomorrow. The more sustainable choices we make today, the more future generations will be able to appreciate the possibilities offered by our planet. These are innovative energy technologies that really make a difference enabling significant environmental, economic and efficiency benefits that, as seen above, are vital to our near future.
