How A Biomass Power Station Works

  Biomass Biomass grows up to 10 million seedlings a year in nursery. They will generate 30 MW of electric power by growing the seedlings into trees, processing the timber logs into woodchips, and burning them during a biomass power station. Biomass Power Plant Trees enter the woodchipper from the left, woodchips are lit to heat the boiler, from which the high-pressure steam then drives the turbine,spins a generator to make electricity. Process The seedlings are planted over 16,000 hectares of plantations to grow for 5 to 8 years to mature into trees. While the trees grow they absorb from the atmosphere Carbon Dioxide through the process of photosynthesis. Mature trees are harvested, debarked, and loaded as tree logs onto trucks. Tree logs are then transported to a centrally located power station site. Tree logs are processed on site into wood chips to fuel our biomass power station . Wood chips are channelled into the combustion chamber through a conveyor system and burned to h
