Abstract:

The U.S. EPAs National Risk Management Research Laboratory NRMRL Air Pollution Prevention and Control Division APPCD, formerly EPAs Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory AEERL, is cooperating with the Research Triangle Institute RTI to demonstrate that converting wood energy to electrical power results in waste utilization, pollution alleviation, and energy conservation. The project is expected to demonstrate the technical, economic, and environmental feasibility of an innovative energy conversion technology, producing approximately 1 MWe, at the Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, NC. Camp Lejeune will supply wood waste for power plant operation while minimizing transport and maximizing local waste resource utilization. The technology for the process and the site at Camp Lejeune have been selected, design specifications are presently underway, and installation, start-up, testing, and demonstration will soon follow. This paper provides details of the status of this project.
