Kauhajoen Lämpöhuolto Oy and KPA Unicon have signed an agreement for the delivery of a 14 MW Unicon Renefluid biofuel plant to Kauhajoki, Finland. The plant will be handed over to the customer in February 2020.
The new biofuel plant will be the main plant generating district heating to the area and will replace the existing heating plants in Lellava and Aronkylä. The main fuels for the plant will be forest residues, recycled wood and milled peat.
The delivery includes a 14 MW biofuel boiler, fuel storage with four section scraper conveyor, crushing rollers, conveyors, screen, bag filter and two-horn stack. In addition, the plant contains PlantSys control station, alarm and reporting automation, as well as remote assistance from KPA Unicon’s Haapavesi central control station. Delivery is performed on a turn-key basis, excluding civil and foundation work.
The U.S. exported 424,680.5 tons of wood pellets in April, according to data released by the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service on June 6. Exports volumes were down from both the prior month and the same period of the previous year.
USDA data shows the U.S. exported 424,680.5 tons of wood pellets in April, down from 610,554.3 tons exported in March and 518,022.5 tons exported in April 2018.
Total wood pellet exports for the first four months of 2019 reached 1.92 million tons, up from the 1.74 million tons of wood pellets exported during the same period of 2018.
The U.S. exported wood pellets to more than a dozen countries in April. The U.K. was the top destination for wood pellets during the month with 352,404.5 tons, followed by Belgium-Luxembourg with 56,671.3 tons, the French West Indies with 11,000.8 tons, the Netherlands with 1,869.6 tons and Italy with 1,486.4 tons. The U.S. exported only 18.1 tons of wood pellets to Japan in April.
The USDA’s data shows the total value for April wood pellet exports reached $60.27 million, down from $85.19 million in March and $82.64 million in April 2018.
The U.K. Renewable Energy Association has released the second installment of its industry-led Bioenergy Strategy, reporting that bioenergy can meeting the U.K.’s projected shortfall of the 5th Carbon Budget and the impending nuclear gap.
According to the report, bioenergy already meets 7.4 percent of the U.K.’s energy needs. The REA’s analysis shows that bioenergy production can be increased by a factor of 2.5 in the U.K. by 2032 and will be “required to meet the U.K.’s legally binding carbon budgets and realize ‘Net-Zero’ by 2050.”
The REA determined that this increased deployment of bioenergy across the power, heat and transportation sectors could address two-thirds of the projected shortfall in carbon reductions required to meet the Committee on Climate Change’s legally binding 5th Carbon Budget.
“Assuming the government follows the CCC’s recommendation that the U.K. should set a net zero emission target by 2050, this vision demonstrates that bioenergy will be necessary for its attainment,” the REA said in a summary of the report.
The REA also found that bioenergy for power generation provides an alternative go nuclear power as a low-carbon, dispatchable source of electricity and cold close the predicted “nuclear gap” of 72 terawatt hours (TWh) caused by shelved nuclear projects.
Overall, the REA’s report shows bioenergy could increase by more than 60 percent between 2020 and 2026, and by a factor of 2.5 by 2032. The overall share of bioenergy in final energy demand could increase from 5.5 percent in 2020 to 9.5 percent in 2026 and nearly 15 percent in 2032.
McBride, B.C., will now be home to a new pellet plant, thanks to Boreal BioEnergy. The company bought the site of a sawmill which had shutdown 13 years ago.
According to CBC News, construction is expected to begin in early 2020 and the plant will begin operating in late 2020.
The plant will have a production capacity of 250,000 tonnes of black pellets, CBC News report, and will result in 50 to 60 new jobs. Pellets will be exported to Japan, with the first shipment scheduled to arrive in 2021.
Enviva is the world’s largest producer of industrial wood pellets, in partnership with the Earthworm Foundation, announced that it is enhancing its responsible sourcing policy to better accomplish its commitment to the highest possible standards in sustainability.
The announcement is part of Enviva’s long-standing pledge to continuously improve environmental performance and will serve as a framework for further improvements over many years to come. “As a leader in sustainability within the forest products sector, Enviva recognizes its critical role in ensuring forest and ecosystem health, and our sourcing policies and practices reflect this,” said Dr Jennifer Jenkins, vice president and chief sustainability officer of Enviva.
“As countries continue to look to replace coal with renewable alternatives, we expect the demand for wood biomass to continue to grow. Enviva’s stakeholders can have confidence that all of the wood we use in our operations meets the highest international sustainability sourcing standards.”
In the United States (US), renewable energy services company Green Energy Sustainable Solutions, Inc. (GESS) has announced a US$240 million investment in Cassia County, Idaho. The company will build six anaerobic digester (AD) facilities near Burley, Idaho, totaling US$40 million for each digester and making it a part of the company’s first tranche biogas plants in the United States.
The anaerobic digester facilities will utilize 170 000 tons of dairy cattle manure and 80 000 tons of agricultural residues per plant from area farmers to produce 550 000 MMbtu worth of renewable natural gas (RNG). GESS plans to begin construction in late 2019 and begin operations by late 2020. The biogas plants will be located on several dairy cattle feedlots in Cassia County, Idaho.
The project will bring nearly 100 jobs to the region, a minimum of 16 new full-time jobs per plant. The jobs will include truck drivers, transportation managers, inventory managers, mechanical engineers, plant managers, and plant laborers. The biogas plants will operate 24/7, 365 days a year.
