$50M Project

Uses renewable / sustainable biomass as heat source for 60 MMBH (output) / 185 PSIG saturated steam boiler.  Biomass is gasified to produce “syngas” which is then burned to produce heat. This process allows better control of heat input, reduces boiler tube fouling and stack emissions as compared to conventional wood burning systems.
