LPP Combustion, LLC, a US-based innovator in liquid fuel technology, said Wednesday it had teamed up with several international partners, including a Nigeria-based company, to market its equipment overseas .
The LPP Technology enables liquid fuels, such as naphtha, kerosene, diesel, biodiesel or ethanol, to be burned as cleanly as natural gas using natural gas combustion devices.
Significant international interest in the technology has prompted the formation of international partnerships with the National Gas Company SAOG (NGC) in Oman, and Bishorps Limited in West Africa.
In Nigeria, Bishorps Limited plans to incorporate the LPP Technology directly in to West African power projects that use locally available biofuels, as well as the area’s vast supply of conventional liquid fuels.
Like the Middle East, West Africa has growing energy demands and locally available liquid fuels that can be used to meet these needs.
LPP technology enables liquid fuel to be combusted with very low emissions in natural gas combustion devices, in combination with, or in place of, natural gas.
LPP Systems offer the user fuel flexibility with the ability to switch between natural gas and various liquid fuels during turbine operation, while maintaining natural gas-like emissions and performance, and dramatically reducing the maintenance requirements usually associated with liquid fuels.
The LPP system can be integrated into new combustion systems or deployed as a self-contained hardware skid that can be easily tied into existing natural gas-fired equipment without modification of the combustion hardware.
“This ease of installation makes LPP Systems and liquid fuels an exciting option for industrial and utility scale combustion markets,” said LPP Combustion, LLC.
