Type of project: CO2 abatement: Fuel switch from coal to wood biomass.

Objectives: The wood wastes (bark, shavings, sawdust) produced by the Svilosa pulp, rayon and cellulose plant will be used to replace part of the coal currently used. A biomass-fired boiler will produce heat for the cellulose line at a higher efficiency than the current coal-fired boiler. The boiler has a capacity of 14 MW (18 tonnes per hour saturated steam at a pressure of between 12 and 15 bar). The planned energy input is 157,000 MWh per year, with an anticipated output 117,000 MWh per year.
Current status of the project Operational
Total verified emission reductions 293037.0 t CO2 equivalent
