NRC building Canada’s first biomass CHP testing and training hub for remote communities
In off-grid and isolated Canadian communities, energy for residents and industries is most often generated through diesel, which emits large amounts of greenhouse gases (GHG) and negatively impacts local air quality. These communities are often in the coldest parts of Canada and rely upon diesel deliveries to ensure heat, power, and quality of life, particularly during winter months.
Biomass Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems are a much cleaner energy alternative to generating heat and power with diesel and other fossil fuels. These systems offer economic and social benefits such as energy security and independence, local economic growth and job creation, revitalization of the forestry sector, and more.

Improved forecasting for municipal solid waste streams for bioenergy
Municipal solid waste (MSW) can be used as a feedstock for bioenergy, but material composition, tonnage, variability of MSW characteristics, and waste stream availability must be precisely calculated for MSW to be a viable feedstock.

Did you know?
DYK that 292 remote communities in Canada create twice as much CO2 per KWh than the average power generating system? This is equivalent to the greenhouse gases emissions of approximately 52,000 cars per year.
