Combusting biomass feedstock to create electricity does not contribute to global warming and helps avoid the release of other harmful emissions. Also, viable fuels are produced in many industries with no additional processing costs involved, further strengthening the financial feasibility of new plants on favorable sites.
Typical biomass fuels include a wide variety of material. Some common fuels are forestry by-products, agricultural wastes, municipal wastes, landfill gas, and syngas. There are also many next generation biomass feedstocks in different stages of commercialization. These new fuels have the potential to dramatically scale plant sizes and the feedstock supply chain, creating significant opportunities for additional generation fleet expansion.
Whichever fuel type or combustion technology is used in your biomass plant, a Siemens steam turbine will ensure high plant performance.
The Siemens steam turbine portfolio is characterized by efficiency and durability. Siemens turbines can be built to be back-pressure or condensing, and single or multi-stage. They can also be equipped with single or multiple controlled and uncontrolled extractions to satisfy particular process or district heating as well as cooling requirements.
