Argentina is full of biomass fuel. The local people pay much attention to the environment, they are very smart to use biomass as fuel to their power plant boiler. Solid biomass is also used to generate electricity in combined heat and power plants (CHP). The waste heat produced by this electricity generation is then, for instance, utilised in local and district heating grids or made available to industrial processes as vapour or heat. It can also be used to produce cooling for industrial purposes, for refrigerated warehouses or for cooling buildings.
The energy released when burning solid biomass in modern heating systems is utilised very efficiently. Wood is the primary energy source in Argentina, particularly in the form of wood logs, wood chips and pellets. Manually operated, partly automated and fully automated furnaces and boilers with electronically regulated firing systems have been developed to burn this wood, resulting in a low-emission combustion process with a particularly high efficiency factor of up to 90 per cent.
Circulating Fluidized Bed technology is an ideal technology to be used for large scale power generation with a broad variety of biomass fuels. The well known benefits of CFB technology, such as the superior fuel flexibility, inherently low emissions and high availability can be fully utilized for this purpose.
ZG biomass power plant boilers had been also exported to Argentina, Vietnam, Turkey, Indonesia, Peru, Belarus, Brazil, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Sudan.
