B&W Enters Kiewit, Fidelis Biomass Project
Babcock & Wilcox is partnering with Kiewit Industrial to deliver Fidelis New Energy’s planned net-negative carbon impact biomass power plant at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, La. The 200 MW electricity plant will be the largest of its kind in the world, according to the participants.
The planned facility, called Project Cyclus, will provide power for Fidelis’ 73,000 barrel-per-day Grön Fuels facility, which will produce sustainable aviation fuel, renewable diesel, green hydrogen, and bio-plastic feedstock with a net-negative carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint. Fidelis will sequester the biogenic CO2 in a carbon sink developed and secured by its subsidiary Capio Sequestration pursuant to the previously announced operating agreement between Capio and the state of Louisiana.
B&W will provide engineering, design, equipment and technology services to support development of the biomass-fueled plant. The company’s B&W Renewable business segment will design and supply a biomass-fueled bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler, while its B&W Environmental segment will provide its OxyBright oxy-combustion technology to isolate and capture CO2 for long-term sequestration, as well as a full suite of environmental technologies to control other emissions, including nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides, particulate and volatile organic compounds. The plant will utilize these technologies to produce clean energy with a net-negative carbon impact of over two million tons per year.
