Boiler Conversions to Biomass Burning

Boiler owner/operators in recent years have been motivated to convert existing fossil fuel-fired boilers to burn some, or exclusively biomass fuels. Biomass fuels often provide lower fuel costs and lower flue gas emissions as well as being considered a
“green” renewable resource. Whether the boiler currently burns exclusively fossil fuels or burns a combination of fossil and biomass fuels, Jansen has the experience and capabilities to provide the necessary services to enhance biomass firing in most all boiler configurations.
A typical phased approach to fuel conversion projects is:

  • Initial assessment of feasibility and required modifications to generate early budgetary costs.
  • Engineering evaluation of existing boiler to determine the unit’s capabilities when operating with the new fuel (pressure parts, auxiliary and pollution control equipment).
  • Definition engineering to develop +/- 10% accuracy cost estimate.
  • Engineering design, fabrication, and materials supply.
  • Installation, operator training, and start-up assistance.

Jansen has the capability and experience to carry out any or all of these steps.
