Babcock & Wilcox Renewable receives $38M for new waste-to-energy projects

October 3, 2021 |

In Ohio, Babcock & Wilcox’s Renewable segment received an award for more than $38 million to supply waste-to-energy technologies for municipal waste projects in East Asia. The facilities will be capable of processing approximately 2 million tons of municipal waste annually.

B&W Renewable will design, manufacture and supply its Vølund DynaGrate combustion grates and provide technical site services, in addition to designs for the plants’ fuel-feeding and ash-removal equipment. B&W also will supply a highly efficient, advanced waste-to-energy boiler under a technology license.

“B&W is focused on accelerating our growth in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly for our renewable energy and environmental businesses,” said Jimmy Morgan, B&W Chief Operating Officer. “These types of projects demonstrate the tremendous opportunity for clean, renewable energy throughout Asia. Our advanced waste-to-energy technologies help customers provide reliable, baseload power, while also protecting the environment. These highly efficient plants reduce reliance on landfills and combat climate change caused by significant methane emissions from waste that would otherwise end up in those landfills. B&W also offers state-of-the-art carbon capture technologies that would allow customers to capture CO2 from waste-to-energy facilities, if they choose, and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions entirely.”
