Heat and power production
We have a strong power generation offering that includes fluidized bed boilers, biomass gasifiers, integrated pyrolysis, equipment for environmental protection and a wide selection of life-cycle services. Our expertise covers everything from fuel to stack. Around the world, we have more than 260 fluidized bed boiler references based on BFB (bubbling fluidized bed) and CFB (circulating fluidized bed) technologies.
Fluidized bed boilers can burn essentially all rejects coming from the mill, such as bark and other wood waste, sludge, de-inking rejects, and more. Typically, the energy demand is balanced with fuels – any solid fuels – purchased from the outside.
Biomass can also be utilized in a gasifier to produce biogas for a lime kiln and to replace the fossil fuels it uses. Another alternative in using biomass is integrated pyrolysis to produce bio-oil, which can be used in a lime kiln or sold onwards. An integrated pyrolyzer is always connected to a fluidized bed boiler.
