EIL S.r.l.

Today, it is possible to go beyond the concept of energy thanks to REENERGY+, the new EIL department entirely managed by internal personnel for assistance and maintenance on turbines, and air system and steam balancing.
The new concept is based on the use of an ultra-modern post-combustor that acts as energy modulator with impressive benefits, actually eliminating traditional burners.

The new air system will hence no longer feature burners and related plants, fans, air supply ducts and gas pipes; everything becomes simpler and safer since it will be free of areas at risk of fire. The post-combustor guarantees full operation also in the event of unavailability of the turbine, but the true, extraordinary result is obtained by its operation in synergy with the turbine:

  • 10% less consumption;
  • +15% total efficiency.
EIL technical assistance.

A further demonstration of its use in view of concrete sustainability is the development by EIL, in collaboration with international partners, of an innovative system capable of converting paper mill sludge into syngas, used inside the turbine. The plant will be illustrated and presented by the end of the year at EMEX, London. With its new REENERGY+ brand, EIL launches on the market a veritable revolution in the realm of energy. A revolution that can be applied to any machine for paper production (tissue and board). In a market where energy costs and environmental constraints carry such importance, REENERGY+ is the complete solution, perfectly integrated in the production cycle.

EIL develops the entire project internally with no exclusions, relieving the customer of any burden up to the project’s completion. The patented software guarantees a unique flexibility because it affords modulation and complete management of the gas turbine as well as of the entire production, without requiring additional specialised staff and without interfering with production.

Only one power source for a tissue machine


REENERGY+ is integrated as an alternative and back-up burner that combines hot air generation and the production of electricity, a process completely independent from production that can be disabled at any time without stopping the machine. The hot air is stored and managed through a sophisticated, totally automatic system that can be modelled based on machine requirements, exploiting its potential to the fullest. The air obtained is much drier and cleaner compared to traditional combustion. Energy production comes from the OP16 gas turbine marked Opra (for plants up to 90 tons/day) and Siemens or Centrax (for plants from 90 to 200 tons/day) of which EIL is world partner for the paper industry. The guaranteed benefits are:

  • 8,500 hours per year of continuous operation;
  • 1 annual 5-day maintenance intervention;
  • very low and all-inclusive maintenance costs;
  • from 1,750 to 16 Mw produced in any outside weather conditions;
  • 80% reduction of pollutants at the end of the cycle;
  • 10% increase in production;
  • enhanced paper softness;
  • annual TEE (energy efficiency certificate);
  • no noise impact;
  • no increase in gas consumption;
  • 10-year warranty with no decrease in performance.

The system is monitored 24/7 by the team of specialised technicians at the EIL facilities and is activated with on-site assistance in the event of failures.
An internal department dedicated exclusively to REENERGY+ ensures full support in the event of problems, relieving the facility of any burden and ensuring electrothermal production 360 days a year.
And last but not least, EIL completes its services with the possibility of wholly financing the plant. After an important test period during which the related environmental, performance and flexibility assessments were performed, REENERGY+ is today marketed in every country through a dedicated sales network. In parallel with the energy efficiency plants, EIL provided total electrification on 7 tissue machines in 2019, 3 Reenergy+ plants, and in 2020 it will inaugurate an additional department dedicated to end of-line robotic stations for converting.

EIL, Trust the power.
