Biomass to Energy

Concerns about CO2 emissions create a greater demand for biomass-to-energy (BtE) installations. Unfortunately, not every biomass source is pollutant-free and sometimes significant variability is observed. Consequently, flexible and reliable emission control systems should be implemented. As with all industrial applications, BtE facilities must follow standards such as those set by the Industrial Emission Directive in Europe (2010/75/EU) and must respect the associated emission limit values.


When needed by the fuel selected, most classical Flue Gas Cleaning processes consist in dry sorbent injection and/or hot side sorbent injection because of the flexibility and lower investment cost associated with these technologies. However, in some cases, more complex solutions may be required.


Carmeuse experts can help you determine the best solution for your needs taking into account all the costs associated with your Flue Gas Cleaning project, considering also the fact that depending on the different local realities dedicated solutions may be required. Matching the proper reagent to your application is thus a critical factor and depends on parameters such as fuel mix, process, local regulations and more. Our optimized solution includes products such as:

One truth is that Carmeuse will provide the adequate CleanCalco® sorbent whatever process you select…
