Recycled Energy Development (RED) and National Gypsum Company (NGC) are to develop a CHP project at NGC’s wallboard production facility in Burlington, New Jersey, US.

The project will produce approximately 3.4 MW of clean electricity and deliver more than 210,000 MMBtu of thermal energy, resulting in an overall efficiency of greater than 90%.

RED received a US$1.36 million grant from the state to support the CHP project.

Funding was made available through the Clean Energy Solutions ARRA CHP Program, a grant programme supported by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and jointly developed by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) and the State of New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU).

Grants provided through the programme were used for CHP facility installation and upgrade projects in New Jersey.

“The NGC project will increase industrial productivity, generate clean power, and reduce CO2 emissions,” said Sean Casten, RED’s president and CEO.
