The GE subsidiary of GE Energy in Atlanta is providing the Clean Cycle heat-to-power generator. Nashville, Tenn.-based PHG, an alternative energy equipment company, has supplied six biomass-fueled gasifiers, according to a news release. The facility is owned by Boral Brick Corp., Roswell, Ga.
The operation is in research and development mode until the plant can reopen with the recovery of the housing industry. The electricity produced by the facility will go to the grid under an agreement with the Tennessee Valley Authority. It should produce enough electricity to supply about 50 homes.
PHG is configuring a similar system in Covington, Tenn., where the city has asked PHG to build a waste-to-energy facility using wood waste and sewage sludge.
