In early 1998, the City of Ravenna, Italy, commissioned a fluid bed boiler/waste-to-energy system to combust approximately 50,000 tonnes per year of processed municipal waste and generate electrical power. Much of the fuel preparation and processing equipment was already in place and the primary focus of this project was to implement an environmentally acceptable energy conversion process compatible with the 6.0 tonnes per hour of fuel being processed. The fluid bed boiler system being provided incorporates state of the art environmental controls for abatement of all pollutants, including products of incomplete combustion (PIC’s), NOx, acid gases, and particulates. The project delivers an average of 70,000 pounds per hour of steam to generate approximately 7 MW of electricity.
