Evergreen BioFuels offers Power Pellets to utilities for power generation

MONTREAL, QUE-Evergreen BioFuels (EBF) is now making its patented Power Pellets biofuel available to power generation utilities. "The fibre by-products used in our Power Pellets are naturally carbon neutral," said EBF president and CEO Mark Drisdelle. "Substituting a portion of carbon emitting fuel like coal with our Power Pellets and co-firing them together will allow utilities to see an immediate reduction in their carbon footprint." Based in Montreal, EBF has been developing and manufacturing its Power Pellets for home and consumer use in North America and Europe since 2005. Its industrial product is now being offered to utility companies for incorporation in their systems. Made from condensed wood, agriculture crop residues and industrial fibers, Power Pellets can be co-fired--the combined combustion of coal and biomass--and can work within existing plant infrastructure without the need for replacement or retrofit of current technology and equipment, thus directly reducing net CO2 emissions, says the company. In addition to making its Power Pellets available to the industrial marketplace, EBF is currently working directly with plants and utilities on developing and implementing sustainable and clean-burning alternative fuel. The company is also participating in research on alternative bioenergy sources for its Power Pellets products, including switchgrass, fast-growing willow and agriculture byproducts. ultimately resulting in future environmentally-conscious alternatives to current fossil fuel technology. EBF offers Power Pellets to its industrial clients in three different formats: bulk, one ton Super Sacs, or on one-ton or 1.5-ton pallets containing individual bags.
