Bioenergy accounts for roughly 10 % of the world's total primary energy supply. We support clients in developing customized bioenergy concepts making use of our specific project know-how in co-generation, biomass combined heat power plants, biogas and biofuel plants.
Worldwide coal is still an important fuel for energy generation. However the need to reduce CO2 emissions requires more advanced and highly efficient coal plants. Therefore, clients worldwide assign RWE to modernize coal generation plants by implementing new, innovative technologies and pollution control techniques. Burning biomass is getting more popular as it can be a clean (‘carbon neutral’) way of generating electricity.
By testing and examining plant technology, fuel supply routes, unloading technologies, storage, mitigation of dust and ash management we help plant operators in their coal-to-biomass conversion project. We have experience with a wide range of combustion technologies applicable for various coal qualities. Our contribution ranges from due diligence, market and feasibility studies to technical advice on suitable biomass co-firing applications or combustion optimization. We also guide and support on how to design and develop a biomass plant.
