B E B Bio Energie Baden at the Kehl site is being upgraded to use additional fuels in the future so as to implement a circular economy at the site. The first partial implementation took place in October 2022, with completion next year.
B E B Bio Energie Baden GmbH owns and operates two biomass combined heat and power plants fueled by waste wood at the Kehl site. These generate electricity and process steam at the same time through combined heat and power technology. After 20 years of supplying energy back to the public grid under the German Renewable Energy Act (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz, [EEG]), Block I of the combined heat and power plant is now set to lose its entitlement to the EEG payments. Accordingly, 10 million euros are being invested into Block I of B E B Bio Energie Baden post-EEG.
Regular maintenance measures are essential in power plants. However, the majority of such work requires a shutdown of the plant or individual plant components. The same is true of the planned upgrade to the biomass combined heat and power plant in Kehl. As the measures are too extensive for a single overhaul session, the work will be carried out in two phases. The first partial implementation will be carried out in October/November 2022, and a second in 2023 with the aim of using additional fuels.
Block I of the biomass combined heat and power plant in Kehl is currently being fueled exclusively with waste wood. The upgrade is intended to enable the use of additional new fuels such as sewage sludge and paper fiber sludge in the future. The reason for the fuel expansion and the associated investments is primarily the realization of a circular economy and thus the use of synergy effects.
