Since CoMate® is applicable to any fuel or mixture of fuels, it is extremely versatile. We have had continuously successful programs using fuels such as:
- Bunker C/#6 Oil
- Coals (lignite, subbituminous, bituminous)
- Wood Chips
- Wood Dust (including chemical-laden waste dust from MDF/OSB manufacturing)
- Black/Red Liquor
- Agricultural Residues (Bagasse, Wheatgrass, Olive/Grape Pits, Sunflower Seed Husks, etc.)
- Municipal Solid Waste/Sludge
- Pulp Mill Sludge
- Demolition Debris
...and many other fuels
We have clients that burn at times 6 to 10 different fuels simultaneously, such as waste burners and recycling plants. For some in the power generation industry, being able to co-fire biomass with coal can be very attractive, provided that issues such as fouling can be resolved.
That’s where we come in.
Over time, regulations will progressively require a more “all-of-the-above” approach to energy generation, balancing the use of fossil fuels with alternative fuels such as biomass. If your company is considering moving forward with co-firing, or shifting to lower quality biomass fuels to cut fuel costs, you have nothing to lose by calling us to find out how we can help.
