TURBO CHARGED TURBODEN
20 May 2022
To date, Turboden has more than 300 biomass-fired Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) units in operation, mainly dedicated to generating combined heat and power for district heating and industrial processes. Of the total, 78 of these units are in the woodbased panel production industry. Not only are ORCs available among Turboden technologies nowadays, new solutions have been developed, such as large heat pumps and new concept high temperature ORCs able to co-generate steam up to 25 bar and power.
Let’s see how the Turboden technologies can contribute to energy efficiency and decarbonisation in the wood-based panel production processes, starting with biomassfired ORC for combined heat and power (CHP) in particleboard and OSB production.
