Supply Security & Environmental Concerns to Propel Biopower Capacity to 84.1 GW by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts

Supply Security & Environmental Concerns to Propel Biopower Capacity to 84.1 GW by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts

San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 14, 2009

newsimageRapidly expanding global population and fast-paced economic growth, particularly in developing countries, is propelling the demand for all forms of energy including electricity. To address the growing energy demand, countries are exploring a wide array of low-cost, environment-friendly and renewable energy resources such as biomass, biogas, and wind. Biomass is the leading source of primary energy, and the second largest renewable source of power generation after hydropower.

Volatile prices of fossil fuels have enhanced the cost-competitiveness of biomass resources. Further, advent of emission trading market and reduction in the cost of biomass and bioenergy systems have propelled the demand for biomass production, consumption and trading. Governments are also encouraging the sector through development of new bioenergy policies to ensure supply security and to minimize pollution. Lower cost of power generation from biomass, and rising complexities with regard to waste disposal are expected to boost the prospects of biomass and waste-to-energy power generation technologies. However, the market faces several challenges in the form of high capital investment, complex plant operations, uncertainty over raw material supply, and high maintenance cost, among others.

POET to Power Ethanol Plant Expansion with Alternative Energy Source

POET to Power Ethanol Plant Expansion with Alternative Energy Source

Sioux Falls, SD (Vocus) November 15, 2007

poet_8An expansion of a POET ethanol plant includes a technology that will allow ethanol production to double without increasing fossil fuel usage. POET Biorefining – Chancellor, an ethanol production facility near Chancellor, S.D., is undergoing an expansion that will increase production capacity from 50 to 100 million gallons per year. The expansion includes construction of a solid waste fuel boiler, an alternative energy source that will generate enough steam to produce more than half of the expanded plant’s power needs. Mueller Pallets of Sioux Falls, S.D. will supply woodchip fuel for the boiler.

“The solid waste fuel boiler will allow us to double our production capacity without increasing our natural gas usage,” said Rick Serie, General Manager of POET Biorefining – Chancellor. “We’ll be reducing our operating costs by using a green fuel source to produce a domestic, green transportation fuel for America.”

Moscow City Awarded Tender to WTEI Consortium

Today, the City of Moscow awarded a tender to build a new waste-to-energy plant to the Waste to Energy International (WTEI) consortium.

As a member of the “RIKS” consortium, WTEI took participation in this tender offering for financing, construction and operating of the new sludge processing plant in Moscow, Russia. The plant with capacity of 105,000 tons of sludge per year should be constructed in the Moscow region in the next 2 years and be in operation for the next 20 years. Today, all bids except ours were rejected, which was the decision of tender commission and was published on the official site of the Moscow Government.

Concession agreement will be signed between the Government of Moscow and the consortium, which unites European, Russian, Canadian and Middle East market leaders. Investment value of the project is more than 205 million EUR.

Genuine Milestone for WTEI

Waste to Energy International (WTEI) take participation in tender for construction new sludge burning plant on 19th sludge place of GUP «Mosvodocanal».

With capacity of 105,000 tons of incinerated sludge per year and investment value about 200 million EUR this will be the greatest plant in Russia and one of the biggest in Europe.

This project is a genuine milestone for WTEI. In the whole Russian Federation the thermal treatment of waste is currently just making a start.

On the other hand it is necessary to develop in the medium till long term a waste disposal strategy for dealing with a volume of annually roughly 130 million tons of domestic waste in a manner which is economical and friendly to the environment.

The new plant in Moscow will help to solve the waste problem of the capital and to promote the application of modern waste incineration technologies in the federation.

UK’s Power Path: are there too many question marks and not enough answers?

Published: Thursday 20 January 2011

The UK has 19 reactors generating about 18% of its electricity, and all of these but one will be retired by 2023. Yet the first new-generation plant will only become operational by 2018. Despite improvements in the energy efficiency of electrical devices, the country’s 59 GWe peak winter demand could increase by 64% over the next fifty years to reach around 97 GWe by 2060. Although the UK government recently announced its agreement to subsidise the price that nuclear companies get paid for generating electricity, a tangible action plan remains vague. Is the UK nuclear energy market on track to meet future demand?
