UBC to demonstrate biomass CHP

15 February 2010 -  The University of British Columbia (UBC) and Nexterra Systems Corp. said that UBC will install and demonstrate an on-site biomass-fuelled combined heat and power (CHP) solution developed by Nexterra and GE Power & Water's gas engine division. The CHP system will be located at UBC's Vancouver campus.

The new CHP system combines Nexterra gasification and syngas conditioning technologies with a GE high efficiency Jenbacher gas engine. Woody biomass will be gasified and converted into clean synthetic gas (or "syngas") that will be directly fired into a gas engine. The CHP system has an anticipated efficiency of up to 65 percent in cogeneration mode. The system is designed to produce 2 MW of electricity.
