Existing, proven technologies can be implemented now, which can significantly reduce fuel consumption. For industrial decarbonisation, the use of oxygen increases fuel efficiency, which in turn reduces carbon emissions and is therefore a useful solution for industries transitioning to net zero.
While complying with environmental standards, the use of oxygen has numerous financial benefits. The use of oxyfuel reduces the amount of natural gas needed, reduces the carbon emissions and associated costs, and lastly improves the lifespan of combustion machinery.
Oxygen can offer a more immediate means to decarbonise many hard-to-abate processes such as steel, gas and lime production. BOC is experienced in delivering oxyfuel solutions and supporting technologies to industry, in order to minimise energy consumption. Process intensification allows business to do more with less, leading to long-term operational cost savings and providing stability for business practices amid the net zero transition.
