Wood Cogeneration for Industry - Environmental

Any company that has a need for both heat and power is an ideal fit for the Borealis wood power system, especially if located in a rural setting where energy costs are high. The application requirement must be for the full 45 kWh of power for immediate use. If power requirement is not that high, then this energy can be sold to the regional power grid often at preferred rates. Options for off-grid solutions are being reviewed.

The wood industry is a natural fit for this system since in addition to generating both heat and power for their process, wood waste can be recycled. The thermal energy can be used for drying wood chips, pellets, or logs. Payback is dependent on the operation but can be short pending current costs of energy demand.
