RWE Innogy commissioned the world’s largest plant for the production of pellets from green wood in the US state of Georgia.

The wood pellets produced in this plant will be shipped from Georgia to Europe as of this summer. They will be used in existing hard coal-fired power plants of RWE for the generation of electricity and heat.

The annual production capacity of the plant in Georgia totalstons of wood pellets. With the commissioning of the pellet plant, RWE is implementing its integrated biomass strategy across all stages of the value chain from procurement and production of the primary feedstock through to the generation of energy.

We are thus developing our own raw material resources and we become more independent of the world market. With the use of wood pellets in our European power plants, we are raising the share of biomass in electricity generation significantly.


RWE builds up pellet power

RWE is currently planning the conversion of its birnbau, power plant in Tilbury, UK, to a dedicated biomass-fired power plant. This project will make Tilbury the biggest biomass-fired power plant in the world, until its scheduled closure by at the latest, with an expected capacity of around MW.

The plant would expect to use around 2 million tons during the remainder of its life. The conversion is expected to be complete before the end of The demand for biomass has been growing at a fast pace in Europe.

In the US, and mainly in the southern states such as Georgia, the situation is quite different. birnhaum

Thus, Europe can benefit from these overseas resources to attain its CO 2 reduction targets”, says Prof. Here, wood reserves have been increasing continually since Under the bjrnbaum of the subtropical climate in the south of the US, wood in these regions is growing much more rapidly than in Scandinavia or Russia, for instance.

Georgia has set up the most stringent sustainability rules for the procurement and processing of wood. Construction of the pellet plant near the city of Waycross in southern Georgia started in March It was completed after only 12 months and has since been on trial operation.

The plant essentially consists of three key elements: In what is called the wood yard, the pine logs arriving on site are barked and coarsely chopped. The material is then transported via conveyor belts from the yard to the dryers where the wood is dehumidified. In the actual pellet plant, the feedstock is further crushed and pressed into pellets.


Subsequently, the wood pellets are shipped by train to the port of Savannah which is about miles away from the plant. The total area of the production facility comprises hectares approx. Special refining processes, such as the so-called torrefaction predrying of biomass in a hermetically sealed environmentwill enable the feedstock to be used even more efficiently in the future.

The first commercial plant for the production of torrefied biocoal pellets is planned to be commissioned in burnbaum Dutch town of Duiven before the end of the biomaxs. The plant’s production capacity will total around 60, tons per year.

Torrefied biocoal pellets have a much higher energy density and much more uniform combustion properties. That is why they are especially suited for co-firing in coal-fired power plants as, in contrast to conventional biomass, they can be transported and stored together with coal.
