The Challenge: Tex Tech was looking for an option of a renewable energy system as an alternative to the fossil fuel heating system currently in place. The savings potential available using wood chip biomass energy was compelling at today’s depressed fuel costs.
The Solution: We reduced long-term energy expenses by installing a state-of-the-art Chiptec Gasification Biomass Boiler system to provide heating requirements as specified by Tex Tech. A Chiptec 250 horsepower high pressure steam boiler fired with biomass wood chips and a fuel feed system designed to hold approximately (100) tons of wood chip fuel was installed.
The Results: This system upgrade has the potential to save $400,000.00 a year in fuel costs which helps keep production here, rather then shipping jobs overseas, in addition to nearly eliminating dependence on fossil fuels and foreign oil.
