Bark and Wood Waste to Energy at OJSC "Ilim Group" Branch in Ust-Ilimsk, Russian Federation

OJSC "Ilim Group" Branch in the town of Ust-Ilimsk (official site of the company

The project is implemented at OJSC "Ilim Group" Branch in the town of Ust-Ilimsk (the former Ust Ilimsk Timber Processing Complex), that accounts for about 30% of market pulp production in Russia.

The project aims to improve efficiency and increase bark and wood wastes (BWW) consumption for production of heat and electricity for auxiliary needs of the Branch through reconstruction of utilizing boiler No.1 of KM-75-40 type and through switching it to BWW fluidized bed combustion. The reconstructed boiler was put into operation in 2002.

The implementation of the project made it possible to utilize almost all BWW available, thus avoiding their disposal at the dump, and to increase heat and electricity supply from the Mill’s own THPP with the respective substitution of energy supplied from the nearby Ust-Ilimsk CHPP (OJSC "Irkutskenergo").

The greenhouse gas emission reductions are ensured by reduction in coal combustion at Ust-Ilimsk CHPP and by reduction in methane emissions from anaerobic decay of BWW at the local dump.

Expected emission reductions over 2008-2012 – 613 kt ян2e
