Soot blowing makes demolition wood profitable in heat and power production

SootTech delivers solution for reduced fuel costs. The soot blowing solution makes demolition Wood a more attractive fuel.

The solution comes from the Swedish cleantech company SootTech that has developed a method that makes soot blowing more efficient and allowing for the use of more difficult fuels sunch as demolition wood.

Ena Energi in Enköping, Sweden choose to focus on the technology when rebuilding the Combined Heat and Power boiler.

– The results are above expected says Erik Holmén, Operation manager at Ena Energi. The boiler is cleaner now and we have the same total boiler efficiency as when operating with easier fuel. A couple of years ago we used 5-10 % demolition wood. Today we use over 90 %.
