The University of British Columbia (UBC) developed a research based biomass cogeneration project using syngas clean up technology. This project was significantly optimized and a new dual fuel supply capacity added. Production was increased by 75% above original installed capacity and the facility now performs as the baseload unit for UBC's new hot water district energy system. Moving forward, new research space and increased biomass capacity options are being considered as the facility continues to redefine itself for the future.
