Customer: Urumchi Jinghuan Environmental & Energy Co., Ltd
Description: Valmet and Urumchi Jinghuan Environmental & Energy Co., Ltd. have signed a contract regarding a delivery of two boiler plants fired with refuse-derived fuel (RDF) for a greenfield waste-to-energy plant in Urumchi, China. The new waste-to-energy power boiler plant will support the circular economy and supply electricity to the power grid. The waste-to-energy solution enables high overall efficiency with very effective heat and power generation.
Details: Valmet’s delivery includes the major parts of two CYMIC boiler islands, from fuel silo to boiler outlet. The boiler uses circulating fluidized bed technology. The boiler plant will burn one million tons of RDF (produced from 100% municipal solid waste) every year. Natural gas is used only for start-ups. The chlorine and alkaline content in the RDF fuel is very high, but Valmet’s circular fluidized bed technology effectively controls emissions and corrosion.
Start-up: Installation of the boiler is scheduled to begin in March 2019. Heat and power production will start by the end of 2019.
