Energy and Sustainability
Power generation, electrical engineering, building services, energy efficiency and sustainability:
Key elements of Saker International work are the application of sustainable development in accordance with the Equator Principles and resource efficiency. Support on all aspects includes:
• Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and mitigation action plans
• Resource efficiency through process selection and optimisation, yield improvement, water and energy conservation and waste minimisation.
• Financing or partnership for Renewable Energy projects (Solar, Biomass, Wind & Geo-Thermal)
Project Studies for:
• Photo Voltaic and solar energy production
• Power generation from Biomass and waste materials through the pyrolysis process:
from waste wood, and other agricultural waste materials
from chicken litter, and similar farming bi-products
from plastic and used car tyres
• Biogas from anaerobic and bio-digesters
• Refuse derived fuels for energy production
• Geo-Thermal data research and feasibility studies
• Studies for wind farms and wind analysis for Energy production
Waste is one of the major challenges the world is facing today. Every year billions of tonnes of waste are generated and these amounts are rising steadily. In spite of the successful 3R strategy (Reduce- Recover-Recycle) to reduce landfill volumes, there are still significant quantities of waste to be disposed. Proper waste treatment can protect public health and the quality of the environment whilst supporting conservation of natural resources. Many countries have introduced promotional instruments for generating electricity from non-fossil resources.
Wastes such as MSW (Municipal Solid Waste), ASR (automotive shredded residue), waste plastic, waste tyres, electronic waste, & medical waste are currently either difficult to recycle or not 100% recyclable, while other waste such as medical waste is not recyclable. Another example is goods packaging, where plastic is attached to other materials (aluminium / polymer laminate). This laminate is inseparable from paper at the recycling facility, resulting in either land filling or incineration. Consequently, waste disposal can cause negative impacts on health and the environment, including pollution to air and water. Waste also represents a loss of natural resources (such as the metals or other recyclable materials it contains, or its potential as an energy source).
