A lMWe power plant using waste wood fuel is to be installed at a U.S. Marine Corps base, which will supply all wood from a landfill site. The core energy conversion technology is a down-draft gasifier supplying approximately 150 Btus of gas to both spark ignition and Diesel dual-fuel engine-generator sets. Features of the plant design include 1 grinding wood fuel from a wide range of waste resources, 2 specialized screening for fines removal, 3 complete tar and other waste product control without landfill disposal, and 4 use of process heat for bulk fuel drying, gasifier air pre-heating, and wastewater evaporation.
