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.
