Energy Products of Idaho (EPI), a provider of solid fuel-fired renewable energy systems, has been selected to provide two fluidized bed energy systems to Ameresco Federal Solutions in support of its contract with the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Savannah River Site project. The contract includes two identical fluidized bed boiler islands that utilize wood waste and chipped tires as fuel to produce superheated steam to drive a turbine for power production. Process steam is extracted from the turbine for use at the Savannah River Nuclear site. EPI’s fluidized bed technology has been utilized to handle biomass fuels and many other traditional and non-traditional fuels, such as chipped tires. According to company officials, , EPI’s proprietary bed cleaning technology allows chipped tires to be used as a fuel without removing the metal wires, resulting in a significant reduction in fuel cost. The wires are recovered during online bed cleaning operations and sold as a high value scrap metal.
