B&W Environmental to Supply Highly Efficient Cooling Technology for Pulp Mill in Brazil

Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) (NYSE: BW) announced today that its B&W Environmental segment will design and supply its highly efficient SPIG S.p.A. cooling towers for a pulp mill operated by LD Celulose S.A. in the Triângulo Mineiro region in Brazil. The contract is valued at approximately $2 million.

LD Celulose S.A. is a joint venture between the Austria-based Lenzing Group and the Brazil-based Duratex. The plant will produce 500,000 tons of soluble cellulose annually.

“B&W Environmental’s specialized SPIG cooling solutions can be tailored for the needs of the pulp & paper industry and for soluble cellulose production,” said SPIG Managing Director Alberto Galantini. “We see a growing market for our services in South America, especially in Brazil.”

“For this project, we will provide SPIG cooling tower cells with concrete structures, engineered to meet our customer’s specifications,” Galantini said. “We thank LD Celulose for this opportunity and look forward to a

This new cooling technology also prevents viral spread

In the face of dangerous heat waves this summer, Americans have taken shelter in air-conditioned cooling centers. Normally, that would be a wise choice, but during a pandemic, indoor shelters present new risks. The same air conditioning systems that keep us cool recirculate air around us, potentially spreading the coronavirus.

“Air conditioners look like they’re bringing in air from the outside because they go through the window, but it is 100 percent recirculated air,” said Forrest Meggers, an assistant professor of architecture at Princeton University. “If you had a system that could cool without being focused solely on cooling air, then you could actually open your windows.”

Meggers and an international team of researchers have developed a safer way for people to beat the heat — a highly efficient cooling system that doesn’t move air around.

Scientists lined door-sized panels with tiny tubes that circulate cold water. Stand next to

Climate-friendly cooling to help ease global warming

A new IIASA-led study shows that coordinated international action on energy-efficient, climate-friendly cooling could avoid as much as 600 billion tons CO2 equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions in this century.


Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are mainly used for cooling and refrigeration. While they were originally developed to replace ozone-depleting substances that are being phased out under the Montreal Protocol, many HFCs are potent greenhouse gases with a global warming potential up to 12,400 times that of CO2 over a 100-year period.

The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, which entered into force in 2019, aims to phase down the consumption of HFCs by 2050. While previous agreements have resulted in improvements in the design and energy performance of, for instance, cooling equipment, the Kigali Amendment is the first to include maintaining and/or enhancing the energy efficiency of cooling technologies as an explicit goal. According to the

LSU Football Files Patent for New Helmet “Cooling and Circulation” Technology

Part of the gameplan for this new, unprecedented 2020 season is to keep the players healthy and safe on the field. That extends to the equipment, including the helmets the players wear. 

The first trial run of a new helmet design at LSU this summer was met with mixed reviews. The face mask, which covered the whole helmet, made it hard for the players to breathe.  

One of the running videos on social media that week was right tackle Austin Deculus saying it’s like trying to breathe “in a ziploc bag.”  Coach Ed Orgeron responded to the new helmets, saying there will be an adjustment period with them.

“We all played football, if I had something on where I couldn’t breathe, I wouldn’t be comfortable,” Orgeron said on Off the Bench. “I think it’s just going to be an adjustment period, work through it and we’re going to have
