Renewable Replacement for Coal Successful in Test Burn; First of its Kind in Western U.S.

Pittsburg, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 09, 2011

California utility Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and power generator GWF Power Systems, L.P. today reported a successful test burn of RFT’s BioCoal, a new clean, high-energy renewable fuel. Twelve hundred pounds of BioCoal were co-fired during the two-hour test at GWF’s Pittsburg petcoke power plant, and was the first of its kind test in the western United States. The test generated approximately one megawatt hour of electric energy, which was delivered to PG&E without changes in operations.

The BioCoal was produced from woody debris provided by PG&E’s vegetation management team using RFT’s demonstration mobile torrefaction processor. BioCoal is a carbon-neutral, coal-grade fuel that is free of mercury, sulfur and toxic ash.

Announcing the opening of two zero-carbon stores in Thailand and the Czech Republic, Sir Terry Leahy said governments needed to create the regulatory environment that will allow private companies to lead the way in bringing about economic growth that is sustainable in every sense, working to make green choices cheaper, simpler and more attractive to consumers.

“Regulation has its place in setting the right framework for [action on climate change, for example through an effective carbon price. But I believe in the power of the market and in people’s creativity to tackle major challenges. Governments can help create the right framework, but they cannot match the energy and innovation of the market.”
