Electrical Power Generated From Biomass
The demand for the development of renewable energy sources is rapidly increasing and IMV Projects is involved. As of 2009 IMV Projects and Mustus Energy have been working together to design a 35-MW biomass power plant that will take wood waste from an existing lumberyard and convert it into electrical power for the community.
La Crete Biomass Power Facility
IMV Projects has developed a preliminary design for the plant using proven stoker-boiler technology. The heat energy from the biomass plant will be used to produce steam to drive a conventional steam turbine coupled to a generator.
Beyond the economic benefit to the local community, this type of facility has several environmental advantages, including reduced air emissions, an ash byproduct (Bio-ash) that can be used as a soil enhancement on agricultural fields (increases water retention), and reduced dependence on fossil fuel for Alberta's energy needs.
