Circulating Fluidized Bed Technology Enables Utility-Scale Biomass Power Generation

AFW, Amec Foster Wheeler, Free Webinar, Energy Industry Webinar, Biomass, CFB Technology



This webinar can help you make informed decisions about CFB boiler selection and fuel utilization options for new biomass firing applications. 

The Paris climate change agreement (COP21) is driving many countries around the world to set carbon emission reduction targets. Increased utilization of biomass fuels is a growing solution to meet these targets since biomass absorbs CO2 during its growth cycle which is then recycled back to the atmosphere when the biomass is burned to recover energy.  As such, biomass has become an important part of the solution to reduce the carbon intensity of our energy supply in a sustainable way.

Amec Foster Wheeler’s advanced bio CFB technology is taking 100% biomass firing to utility scale levels.  In 2012, the world’s largest 100% biomass fired CFB boiler burning wood residues with up to 20% agro-biomass was commissioned at the GDF Suez Energia 205 MW Polaniec Power Station in Poland. Despite a wide range of agro wastes in the fuel, the advanced bio-CFB technology has enabled the plant operate at very high efficiencies (36% LHV) and low emissions compared to typical biomass grate boilers.

More recently, Amec Foster Wheeler’s 105 MWe unit at the Danging power station in South Korea began operation in 2015.  This multi-fuel unit fires a combination of palm kernel shells (PKS), wood pellets and coal. The trend for larger more efficient biomass plants continues with the recently awarded 300 MWe Tees projects in the UK.    

In this informative webinar, Timo Jantti, Head of Global Technology for Amec Foster Wheeler, will review each of these biomass CFB projects as well as the advances in CFB technology which make these projects possible. 

Attendees can ask questions which will be covered during the Q&A session of the webinar.
