Renewable Fuels for District Heating Applications

Summary This presentation will cover several case studies that serve as examples of facilities converting steam boilers from fossil fuel firing to renewable fuel firing. Two case studies involve fuel switching from diesel fuel to renewable fuel oil (RFO), one will cover fuel switching from natural gas to digester gas. Important aspects of the fuel conversion projects will be covered including the economic justification for the projects, a technical overview of the projects from a combustion engineer's perspective, and operational impacts on the facilities.

Federal Clean Fuel Standard a 'flexible regulation'

Maria Church, Canadian Biomass Ontario Power Generation's Atikokan generating station is 100 per cent fuelled by wood pellets. Summary The Canadian federal government has released its Clean Fuel Standard with the aim of publishing draft regulations by late next year. Environment and climate change minister Catherine McKenna said the standard will "give Canadians better access to clean fuels and will make a significant cut in Canada's carbon pollution." The standard will require fuel producers, importers, or distributors to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions produced during any part of a fuel's lifecycle, including production, transportation to processors and end users, and when the fuel is combusted.
