Thyssenkrupp Industries, Babcock & Wilcox Collaborates for Biomass Boiler Technology for India

Thyssenkrupp Industries has announced that it has signed an exclusive license treaty with Babcock & Wilcox Volund of Denmark for a biomass boiler technology for India and adjacent countries that could significantly reduce pollution, the company supposed.

The company held that its biomass boilers could help reduce pollution in North India, where burning of crop waste in fields has been a key source of pollutions and has ensued in pollution levels spiraling in the capital.

“Through this agreement with Babcock & Wilcox, we will be able to find a sustainable solution to this issue by utilizing this crop waste for clean energy generation. Babcock & Wilcox’s water-cooled vibrating grate technology for biomass boilers can address various biomass fuels, even those with high alkali and chlorine content," believed Vivek Bhatia, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director of Thyssenkrupp Industries India.

Babcock & Wilcox water-cooled vibrating grate was developed for combustion of biomass and multi-fuels with little or almost no ash content. This technology is well-matched for fuels with high alkali and chlorine content, such as rice straw – a common by-product of agriculture in India and other countries in the region. Thyssenkrupp aims to offer this technology in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Bhutan.

“This arrangement with Thyssenkrupp Industries India is a significant step for B&W Volund in retrieving the growing renewable energy market in India,” alleged Koen W. Bogers, managing director, B&W Volund.
