Areva to develop modular biomass power plant

Areva was awarded an undisclosed amount of money to develop a bioenergy solution.

KIC InnoEnergy awarded the funding, which is aimed at developing a concept of modular and compact power plants to target small-scale biomas resources in Latin America, south Asia and Europe. The new concept of biomass plant also aims to improve upstream technologies for multi-fuel acceptance and higher availability.

A number of partners have already signed on to the project along with Areva, including SITA, an industrial operator specialist in waste treatment and recovery, as well as research and development centers the French CEA and the German Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

The global market for biomass capacity is expected to grow by 6.8 GWe per year by 2015, with nearly 1.8 GWe per year in each of Areva’s target markets.
