B&W Renewable to develop waste-to-energy solutions in Asia

Babcock and Wilcox B&W Renewable

B&W Renewable, Babcock & Wilcox’s, renewable energy segment, will develop state-of-the-art waste-to-energy solutions in East Asia. This Thursday, the company announced that it received a more than $38 million award to supply such solutions in East Asia.

Firstly, the company did not reveal the exact location in which the developments will be made, nor the financial entity that granted the award. However, it announced that B&W Renewable would design, manufacture and supply its solutions for municipal waste-to-energy facilities in the region.

Particularly, the company will deploy its Vølund DynaGrate combustion grates. It will also provide technical site services, in addition to designs for the plants’ fuel-feeding and ash-removal equipment.

Furthermore, it will also provide a highly efficient, advanced waste-to-energy boiler under a technology license. Overall, the facilities will process around 2 million tons of municipal waste every year.

On the other hand, the award to the company’s renewable energy sector represents a growth milestone. About such matters, Jimmy Morgan, B&W Chief Operating Officer, said. “B&W is focused on accelerating our growth in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly for our renewable energy and environmental businesses.”

B&W Renewable would help reduce methane emissions and capture carbon

He also remarked. “These types of projects demonstrate the tremendous opportunity for clean, renewable energy throughout Asia. Our advanced waste-to-energy technologies help customers provide reliable, baseload power while also protecting the environment.”

The executive further commented that the facilities would reduce the region’s reliance on landfills. Consequently, the facilities will help offset significant methane emissions from waste that would otherwise end up in those landfills.

In addition to the above-mentioned, B&W would also deploy carbon capture solutions at the facilities. On that matter, the COO said. “(Those solutions) would allow customers to capture CO2 from waste-to-energy facilities and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions entirely.” “This directly aligns with our organic growth strategy and operational expansion within the Asia-Pacific region.” He concluded.

Finally, the Babcock & Wilcox Renewable segment offers cost-effective technologies for efficient and environmentally sustainable power and heat generation, including waste-to-energy, biomass energy and black liquor systems for the pulp and paper industry.
