Replacing Coal with TorrB® Biocoal

Replacing coal with clean burning, carbon neutral TorrB® biocoal extends the life of an existing coal plant. No material modifications are required to begin mixing TorrB® biocoal with coal. It can be mixed with coal at any proportion up to 100%.

  • Mercury and sulfur emissions eliminated – Essentially no sulfur or mercury is contained in exhaust gases upon combustion of  TorrB® biocoal.

  • NOx Emissions greatly reduced – NOx emissions are reduced by more than 50%.

  • Same Power Production Rate as Coal – Power production remains the same as with coal, while use of  white pellets or raw wood in any form substantially reduces power production.

  • Uses existing pulverizer – No material modifications needed to start using TorrB® biocoal.

  • Ships and Handles Like Coal – TorrB® biocoal arrives in open hopper cars and can be stored outdoors without cover, just like coal.

  • No Adverse Effects on Boiler – Test burns of TorrB® biocoal in the coal boiler shows it burns like coal with no material negative impacts.
