consumer of energy in the manufacturing sector to a pro-
ducer of energy. As a result of this consensus, Congress
added a budget line item to fund this initiative.
METHANE de-NOX demonstration project-Funded by
the Gas Research Institute, the Institute of Gas Technology
(now the Gas Technology Institute), and OIT, a METHANE
de-NOX system was installed and tested on a natural gas,
co-fired, 300 MMBtu/h wood waste and sludge-fired stoker
boiler at Boise Cascade Corporation's 1500-ton-per-day
integrated paper mill in International Falls, Minnesota.
Compared to baseline co-firing operations, emissions
were reduced by more than 40% when a 9.5% natural gas
mixture was injected. Emissions were reduced even further,
by up to 50%, with a 17% natural gas injection. At the
same time, sludge feed was increased from a baseline level
of 1.4 tons per hour to 4.2 tons per hour. Stan Wohadlo of
the Gas Technology Institute credits much of the project's
success to partnering. "We have a very positive relationship
with OIT as well as with Boise Cascade, the industrial part-
ner... Without that support, we couldn't have completed
our full-scale demonstration project," he said.
and best practices. The efforts of this group have
led to a Showcase Demonstration with Abitibi
Consolidated, Inc., planned for March 2002.
- Industry participants collaborate in research projects
as cost-sharing partners and provide host facilities
for technology demonstrations.
Partnerships among forest products companies, OIT,
and AF&PA have many advantages. Because the
partners provide expert oversight and focus the direc-
tion of research on issues vital to the forest products
industry, R&D dollars can be highly leveraged.
Partnering also provides an opportunity to network,
exchange ideas, and build upon those ideas. This
synergy fosters the implementation of new technologies
that save energy and money. For example, based on
the Boise Cascade results mentioned above, it is
estimated that the company will realize annual savings
of $400,000 in sludge handling and disposal costs and
$270,000 in co-firing fuel costs.
