Our portfolio for Biomass

Sources of biomass are numerous and include energy crops such as switch grass, agricultural waste, manure, forest products, waste, and domestic garbage. Biomass power plants burn these materials to generate electricity. Biomass raw materials produced sustainably unlike fossil fuels, which are non-renewable. Biomass can also use to produce biogas.

As is the case with fossil fuel power plants, biomass power plants combust a feedstock to generate electricity. Thus, biomass plants raise similar, if not identical, concerns about air emissions and water use as fossil fuel plants. However, there is one major difference and that is biomass feedstock can be produced sustainably whereas fossil fuels are not renewable.

Sources of biomass are diverse, including energy crops (e.g. switchgrass), agricultural waste, manure, forest products, waste, and urban waste. Biomass can also be used to produce biofuels directly, for example, in the manufacture of biomethane and other biofuels.  However, some methane slip can occur during this process and this can be treated using Dürr LTB Ecopure® TAR thermal oxidiser technology.
