Torrefied Burn Test at European Utility
In March 2012, a major European utility company successfully completed a burn test using 1200 metric tons of New Biomass Energy torrefied wood pellets. The coal plant co-fired 70% torrefied wood pellets.
Because torrefied pellets burn similar to coal, the coal plant was able to operate efficiently, the plant was able to operate at near maximum capacity and fouling was minimal.
