    沼气应用

    2016-04-27T16:48:00Z

    很多OEM 制造商加紧可持续性项目,有两个公司即将到达关键里程碑。AMS 报道通用和宝马沼气项目在再生能源上的成功和经验。 去年,宝马集团采用再生能源,基本满足集团所需能源。这是历史第一次,也是公司实现100%绿色能源道路上的重要一步。公司在这个道路上的速度非常快;到今年3月份,仅仅是新的措施开始12个月之后,新能源使用在整个能源消耗中的比率就从51%上升到58%。 宝马集团可耻性发展与环保部长Ursula Mathar在去年的“可持续性机制报告”里说,“我们的目标很明确,对转型新能源也有具体的规划。但是她说,“经济可行性”和建立“适当的框架条件”将对宝马逐步实现规划非常关键:即要实现提高全球各地工厂的能源效率;安装可再生能源资源;向第三方采购绿色能源。 2015年,宝马集团采用再生能源,基本满足集团所需能源,这是历史第一次。到2016年3月,可再生能源使用比率达到了58% 在今年3月发布的最新“可持续性价值报告”中,宝马公司称,自2006年,集团的工厂已经节省能源36%。2015年,每辆车的耗能比前年已经降低了2.7%,只有2.19MWh。可再生能源设备包括太阳能电池板(比如英国的Mini Oxford工厂),德国莱比锡工厂的风力涡轮机,华盛顿SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers的水里发电,以及南卡罗莱纳Spartanburg和南非Rosslyn工厂的沼气。 宝马公司在报告中称,集团的战略重点不是在任何特定的可再生能源上,而是在巩固各种技术上:“我们决定每个工厂适合什么理念的技术,才对地方最有利”。集团还特别说明了一个计划,就是在未来数年内会在德国工厂安装光伏系统。 The technical centre at Warren, Michigan, is one of 22 GM facilities worldwide with solar arrays 通用一鸣惊人 也是在3月份,另一个可再生能源巨头 — 通用公司获得了美国环保局(EPA)颁发的第五届“新能源”奖。2015年,通用在美国的工厂里,每辆车耗能下降了5.6%,只有1.9MWh。通用公司全球制造高级副总裁Jim DeLuca说,“我们不断追求新技术,降低驾车对环境的影响,并在汽车制造中减少碳排放。” 2011年,当通用首次投入可再生能源时,就制定目标,要到2020年实现每年创造125MW绿色能源。2013年到2015年,公司向该项目投资3,600万美元,投资内容有:在22个工厂里安装天阳能电池,创造48MW的能量;在9个地方建设电动车充电站;3个垃圾沼气设备;1个垃圾焚烧发电设备。 2016年,通用将完成突破发电125MW可再生能源的目标 — 比预计提前4年 即将在墨西哥和美国开展的风能项目每年将为两国的通用公司提供34MW和30MW的能源;在德克萨斯Arlington装配厂,每年使用风能生产125,000辆SUV汽车。公司称,公司还在推进收购太阳能板,而不是依赖采购协议。公司最近投入到肯塔基Bowling Green公司1MW电能项目当中。沼气是一可再生能源战略中的支柱,从开始出现到现在,仍然是中流砥柱。有了俄亥俄、印第安纳和密歇根的项目,汽车制造商已经成为美国最大的行业沼气使用者。 通用公司的工厂现在至少能获得105MW绿色能源。到今年3月为止,公司10年以来的新能源探索不仅帮助减少对环境的影响,而且还节省了8,000万美元。据通用公司全球可再生能源经理Rob Threlkeld说,有两个风能项目会在今年晚些时候上线,公司届时将突破125MW目标。 动物粪便是BMW Rosslyn的能源材料 2016年3月,宝马公司在南非Rosslyn启动一个可再生能源项目。公司投资60亿兰特(约合4.083亿美元)从3Series转型生产X3。在收购Bio2Watt之后,从2015年10月开始接受绿色能源。该公司在Bronkhorstspruit(位于首都东部50公里)的农场里经营一个沼气发电厂。这个农场接收牛和鸡的排泄物,还有附近Tshwane的垃圾,而且还有雨水收集堤坝。 BMW Rosslyn has ...
