What is a biomass CHP plant?

Combined heat and power plants (CHP) generate electric power and heat in a single plant. They are fired with oil, natural gas, or coal, as well as biogenic fuels.

If wood, vegetable oil or other biogenic fuels are used, the CHP is described as a biomass-fired plant.

Would a biomass-fired plant be of interest for me?

The generation of heating, cooling, and power from biogenic fuels contributes to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere, i.e. active climate protection. Consequently, such projects are of interest in terms of CO2-neutral production.

Hereby, the technical feasibility of such installations is not a decisive factor for their efficiency, but their correct sizing and the availability of suitable fuels.

What can we do for you?

eta Energieberatung is backed by many years of experience in the design of plants fired with biomass or other regenerative energy sources. Engineering know-how, inter-disciplinary planning, and the use of synergy effects are essential requisites to ensure a plant’s efficient operation.

Our activities in this field of business include:

  • Concept creation and feasibility studies for pelletizing and briquetting plants, drying systems, wood chip production, torrefaction, carbonizing plants, and biomass-fired CHPs
  • Neutral selection of systems suppliers
  • Handling of all planning phases up to successful handover
  • Comprehensive support with special expert opinions, approvals, and talks with authorities
  • Energy and economic optimization from project start to the finished and running system
  • Obligatory inclusion of standard processes for industrial energy consultation
  • Financing and funding advice, as well as
  • Valuation reports

Alno Energieberatung Pfullendorf - Energieberatung Industrie

Alno AG

An economic comparison of different heat generation technologies has shown that the conversion to decentralised hot water generation with natural gas low-temperature boilers was more economical than refurbishment or replacement investment in the waste wood heating plant. In addition, a natural gas CHP plant was installed to cover the company’s own electricity requirements.

Biomasse-HKW Albstadt - Energieberatung Albstadt

Biomass CHP Albstadt

The core of the pilot project is the drying of sewage sludge directly on a sewage treatment plant using low-temperature waste heat from a wood-fired biomass cogeneration plant. The dried sewage sludge is easy to transport and is a welcome and CO2-neutral fuel substitute with high calorific value for the recyclers.
