Valmet will supply a biomass-fired boiler and a flue-gas treatment plant to BS Energy's combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Braunschweig, Germany. The biomass-fired CHP plant will produce approximately 20 MW of electricity starting in early 2022.

The primary target of the investment is to replace the coal-fired boiler, which will be removed from production. In addition, the biomass-fired CHP plant will support BS Energy's objective of environmentally friendly and carbon-neutral production, as it will serve as a base-load unit to meet the district heating and electric power needs of the Braunschweig municipality.

According to Valmet, its circulating fluidized bed technology provides reliable operation for waste wood and other challenging biomass fuels.
