Maine Sawmill Aims To Bring New Biomass Plant Online Next Year

Plans to construct a biomass plant on the Robbins Lumber Inc. property are moving forward with work already under way on some portions of the project. The 8.5-megawatt biomass plant, which has a net 7.5-megawatt generating capacity, will burn bark, wood chips and sawdust to power a steam turbine to generate electricity. Waste heat from […]

Kentucky Plant Produces Electricity, Steam From Wood Waste

Workers at a Kentucky plant are doing more than making doors, molding and stair parts. They’re creating fuel to help power the factory. Cox Interior in Campbellsville has a combined heat and power system that burns wood waste in producing electricity for lights and machines, as well as steam to heat wood-drying kilns, the Lexington […]

Wood Pellet Trade Has Doubled Due To Biomass Power Generation

Wood pellets are playing a key role in decarbonizing electric power generation, as the world works to replace fossil fuels. Global trade in pellets has doubled since 2012, with U.S., Canadian, and European producers all playing roles, according to a new study by RISI. European nations, in particular, have invested heavily in pellets for both […]

Wood-Fired Electricity Sparks Ambitious Plans, Controversy In Oregon

By year’s end, Portland General Electric will fire up its 550-megawatt power plant in Boardman for a daylong test burn, feeding 8,000 tons of pulverized, roasted wood into its boilers instead of the usual diet of coal. The exercise is meant to gauge whether the aging fossil fuel plant could reliably generate electricity using renewable […]

Will Changes In UK Renewable Energy Incentives Affect Wood Pellet Demand?

Hard on the heels of a Eurostat report that listed the United Kingdom as in danger of not meeting its renewable energy targets by 2020, the UK government announced it would stop issuing Climate Change Levy Exemption Certificates (LEC) beginning August 1, 2015. Alasdair Cameron, senior economics campaigner with Friends of the Earth, likened the […]

Burning Wood For Electricity: New Demands, New Questions

You may have heard that natural gas has been replacing coal in many power plants, a shift that lowers carbon emissions from electricity generation. But there’s another form of energy that’s increasingly being used to replace coal: wood. Wood pellets are a renewable energy source and there are circumstances where wood energy can reduce net […]
