Biomass boilers and gasifiers for clean energy
Globally recognized power generation technology
Generating electricity using fossil fuel is the most popular method in the world. However, the costs for producing energy with traditional carbon-based fuels are increasing. Therefore it is one of the major challgendes of ANDRITZ to develop proven technologies to replace fossil fuels with sustainable, renewable fuel sources.
Biomass is readily available; lower priced, and can be sustainably grown. ANDRITZ innovative fluidized bed combustion technologies and gasification systems for generating power from biomass incorporate decades of experience and have been implemented in all areas of the pulp and paper industry as well as for utility or municipal power plants. These systems offer high process efficiency and improved environmental performance.
ANDRITZ offers a wide range of fluidized bed technologies, distinguished by capacity, fuel and industrial application, and characterized by unmatched fuel flexibility, lowest emissions and high efficiency and availability.
EcoFluid bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boilers represent an important part of ANDRITZ’s bioenergy solutions and are used for steam and power generation from biomass and different alternate fuels as sludges, RDF, and residues.
PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers are used for steam and power generation from conventional and renewable fuels (e.g. coal and biomass) and alternative fuels (biogenous residues, sludge, rejects, and refuse-derived wastes with high calorific value).
ANDRITZ Carbona delivers gasifier plants for various applications using sustainable woody biomass as fuel. ANDRITZ Carbona gasifiers are based on circulating fluidized bed (CFB) and bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technologies. Approximate capacity range is 10-200 MW fuel per unit.
Several decades of experience with fluidized bed technology and individual customer challenges have provided ANDRITZ with a strong track record of reference plants.
