Biofuels and recovered fuels in the new cogeneration boiler

The new boiler burns biofuels and recovered fuels, which is Söderenergi’s nisch. We have built up an impressive store of knowledge in this field. The principal input is forestry waste, mainly tree branches and tops but also wood chips, bark and shavings etc. In addition, energy crops such as willow salix and reed canary grass are extensively used. Recovered waste fuels are used to a lesser extent, i.e. quality-controlled scrap paper, wood and plastic that cannot be recycled into other materials and which come from offices, shops and industries. The above fuel mix ensures flexibility at a time when demand for biofuels is expected to grow dramatically in both Sweden and the rest of Europe. By mainly using renewable biofuels to generate electricity and heat, we help reduce emissions of greenhouse gases very substantially.
