B&W Renewable Receives Contract for $24 Million Waste-to-Energy Project in Europe

Posted December 7, 2021

(AKRON, Ohio – December 7, 2021) – Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) (NYSE: BW) announced today that its B&W Renewable segment has received a $24 million contract for a new-build waste-to-energy project in Europe. B&W announced it had received a limited notice to proceed on the engineering portion of the contract in June 2021.

B&W Renewable will design and supply advanced technologies, including a waste-to-energy combustion system and DynaGrate® combustion grate, to process recovered solid waste to produce process steam and power while helping eliminate the use of coal as a fuel source. The facility will have two lines, each capable of processing 29 tons of waste per hour.

“By reducing reliance on coal for power generation, B&W Renewable’s waste-to-energy technology will help the facility’s operators reduce net carbon dioxide emissions while economically generating clean power,” said B&W Chief Operating Officer Jimmy Morgan. “Our waste-to-energy technologies also are a powerful solution for combatting the potent greenhouse gas methane, which is generated by decomposing waste in landfills.”

“We see tremendous interest in our waste-to-energy solutions from customers throughout the world who are interested in reducing emissions and generating clean energy, and we are actively pursuing opportunities in this market,” Morgan said.

B&W Renewable’s DynaGrate provides excellent performance with low maintenance costs, thanks to a unique, patented combustion grate design. DynaGrate technology can meet the exacting demands of waste-fired plants, which require a high level of accessibility, fuel flexibility, and energy recovery, under environmentally sound conditions.
