The biomass demonstration project for the Centre in the Park energy system uses agriculture residues (such as oat hulls) and wood waste (from the commercial and construction and demolition sector) as a base-load fuel source. The system uses natural gas during peak seasons and as a back up fuel source.
The system is located on the east part of the Community Energy Centre property. There are three components:
- four storage bins for the feedstocks
- the biomass combustion boiler module
- a chimney which is approximately 9 metres (30 feet) tall
The mobile storage bins allow for off-site fuel processing and filling, which significantly reduces noise emission to neighboring residential areas.
