This project creates a renewable energy source using biomass residues from wood treatment in the Svilocell Pulp Mill in Bulgaria. This biomass is combusted in a specially designed biomass boiler to generate thermal energy in the form of water steam that in turn, fuels the production of pulp. With a thermal capacity of 19.73 MW, the biomass boiler displaces carbon dioxide that would have been produced from the burning of more carbon-intensive fuels.
By reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Bulgaria compared to the business-as-usual scenario, this project reduces CO2 emissions and promotes sustainable energy alternatives in Bulgaria. It also reduces other pollutants from the atmosphere by reducing the plant’s reliance on fossil fuel steam generation methods.
