Techno-economic assessment for emission reduction of biomass combustion plants

Due to increasing pressure from society to reduce the emissions from biomass combustion, ProBiomass and DNVGL were asked by RVO to jointly carry out a technoeconomic assessment on emission reduction technologies available today for biomass combustion plants up to 50 MW, with a particular focus on dust, NOx, SO2 and ammonia slip.

A large number of companies involved in supplying boiler systems and emission abatement systems were asked about the state of the art, considering reduction options and associated costs. The result of the report was recently used by the ministry of Infrastructiure and Water management in a preparation of new emission limits that should possibly enter into force as of 2022.
