Valmet, BS Energy
Date: 2019-09-06
Espoo, Finland-headquartered Valmet is reporting it will supply a biomass-fired boiler and a flue gas treatment plant to BS Energy's combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Braunschweig, Germany. The roughly €50 million boiler with its auxiliary equipment is in line with BS Energy's energy production strategy 2030 which aims to remove and replace coal-fired boilers by 2022.

The biomass-fired CHP plant will produce approximately 20 MW of electricity and 60 MW of district heat. The CYMIC circulating fluidized bed boiler included in Valmet's delivery will use recycled wood as its primary fuels to generate 27 kg/s of high-pressure steam at a pressure of 75 bar and a temperature of 525 C. The flue gas cleaning system included in the delivery will enable fulfilling the tightening emission standards.

BS Energy, a subsidiary company jointly owned by the City of Braunschweig, Veolia Deutschland GmbH, and Thuga AG, is the regional energy supplier in Braunschweig.

Veolia
Date: 2018-10-10
In the UK, a recent YouGov poll notes that 61 pct of C-suite executives and energy managers in the UK have not set GHG emission reduction targets across their businesses, despite the potential for achieving cost savings. The poll also found 73 pct of nearly 850 C-suite executives and energy managers claimed sustainability was "very important" for their organization. The survey also found that among respondents with an annual energy expense of £2 million or more, 45 pct rated the condition of their buildings as "OK or poor".

The survey was commissioned by resources management firm Veolia UK, which said the results highlighted the importance of businesses developing long-term energy efficiency plans, particularly in view of the UK's Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) and Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Phase 2 regulations. Moreover, under government plans, all larger businesses will be required to report their CO2 emissions from next year, the firm explained.
