Cofiring Biomass and Coal for Fossil Fuel Reduction and Other Benefits: Status of North American Facilities in 2010
David Nicholls (au); John Zerbe (au)
Cofiring of biomass and coal at electrical generation facilities is gaining in importance as a means of reducing fossil fuel consumption, and more than 40 facilities in the U.S. have conducted test burns. Given the large size of many coal plants, cofiring at even low rates has the potential to utilize relatively large volumes of biomass. Feedstocks suitable for cofiring include harvest residues, salvage timberwood products, manufacturing residues, woody municipal wastes, agricultural residues, short-rotation intensive culture forests, or hazard fuel removals. Cofiring at low rates can often be done with minimal changes to plant handling and processing equipment, requiring little capital investment. Cofiring at higher rates can involve repowering entire burners to burn biomass in place of coal, or in some cases, repowering entire powerplants. This study evaluates the current status of biomass cofiring in North America, identifying current trends and success stories, types of biomass used, coal plant sizes, and primary cofiring regions. It also identifies potential barriers to cofiring. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
