  1. Biomass Power : Power plant's use of biomass sets stage for more test burns

      PHOENIX (AP) — The Salt River Project says a one-day test worked well and that it plans to add tree-trimming debris to coal burned by one of its Arizona power plants during two longer test periods. SRP wants to determine whether burning biomass will help protect its water supply by making forest-thinning projects economical because more thinning would reduce contamination threats that wildfires pose to the watershed. SRP water strategy analyst Ron Klawitter says Wednesday's pre-burn showed that the Coronado Generating Station's machinery can mix a small percentage of biomass with coal. That sets the stage for two 10-day periods of burning biomass in November. Klawitter says SRP then will study data collected during the biomass burns before deciding whether to begin using forest debris to augment coal as a fuel source.
