Biomass gasification system for US university cogen plant

Once operational, the gasification cogeneration facility will convert wood residue supplied by local sawmills into renewable energy that will help the university become more energy self-sufficient, reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and lower energy costs. At peak capacity, the plant will generate 60,000 lbs/hr of steam, which will be used to heat the campus, as well as 1.38 MW of electricity that will be sold to the grid.

A commercial tomato greenhouse operator located in Ontario, Canada, is installing a 12 MW Jenbacher carbon dioxide fertilization cogeneration system, designed by GE Energy, to boost crop production, heat the greenhouses and generate electricity for the regional grid.
