The simultaneous production of both electrical power and a useable form of thermal energy, such as steam, is termed cogeneration. This may be achieved by generating high pressure steam in a hog-fuel boiler, which would then be passed through a turbine generator for power before being used as exhaust steam in drying or process heating.
Federal Energy Management Program Fact Sheet electricity in units ranging in size from 5 kilowatts to 75 megawatts. Another viable application for wood waste as a fuel is in the co-firing of conventional coal-fired boilers, which means using biomass as a
commonly burnt in a boiler to produce heat for space heating and / or hot water or in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit to produce both heat and electricity. This guidance uses the term 'biomass boilers' to cover both boilers and CHP units. 1.7 Theto more
