Novawood: construction of a biomass combined heat and power plant
The Novawood project plans the building of a 14.6 MW biomass combined heat and power plant to replace two coal-fired boilers at the Novacarb bicarbonate and carbonate production site in Laneuville-devant-Nancy (Grand Est). Created in partnership with ENGIE Solutions, the plant will be operational in 2022 and will use reclaimed wood as fuel. An energy transition challenge that aims to improve Novacarb’s environmental and economic performance, through an efficient installation for producing green electricity and heat. The plant will allow for a 40% reduction in annual coal consumption and will put a stop to the increase in Novacarb’s compliance costs, which rose fourfold over the past two years.
