Netherlands-based HoSt Bio-Energy Installations has announced it recently began construction on a new 15 MWth biomass-fired combined-heat-and-power (CHP) plant in Duiven, Netherlands, on behalf of Sparkling Biomass BV. According to HoSt, the system will be installed in an existing building.

The facility is expected to be operational in mid-2020 and will be capable of firing wood, along with other forms of biomass and residues. The plant is expected to initially be fueled with woody biomass sourced from a composting plant that processes green waste, but will be equipped with advanced technology to enable the use of other types of biomass and residues in the future. Construction on the project began in October.

Information released by HoSt indicates heat, electricity and steam produced by the facility will be supplied to a feed mill, with surplus electricity supplied to the grid. In the future, the plant can be connected to the district heating network for Arnhem and Nijmegen.
