Empty Fruit Bunches biomass CFB boiler in Nigeria
The utilization of empty fruit bunch (EFB) is an alternative biomass fuel for firing a CFB steam boiler plant for the production of electricity in Nigeria.
In this article, the objective is predicated on the need to utilize EFB as fuel for firing a CFB boiler plant to produce steam and generate electricity. The energy produced by fuels and economic cost of using this fuel will be compared to the conventional gas fired boiler.
In Nigeria the economic cost of producing this magnitude of electricity by methane gas is estimated at about $2,000/hr.On the other hand it cost virtually nothing or little amount to procure EFB which is seen as a waste by small scale oil Plantation Companies, the only cost incurred probably comes from transportation of the material, thus making the use of EFB very economical as an alternative fuel for firing a CFB boiler plant.
Most of the electricity produced is from gas fired thermal power plants and such plants use several methods to convert gas to electricity In Nigeria.One method is to burn the gas in a boiler to produce steam, which is then used by a steam turbine to generate electricity.
Presco Palm Oil Industry located in Ikpoba-Okha Edo state of Nigeria is one of the major agro-industries of the West African region. The company depends solely on the electricity generated from its power plant by using EFB as the source of fuel for the boiler combustion to produce steam and generate 1.5MW of electricity.
In Nigeria most of the palm oil produced is by small scale palm mill industries and the by–
product of the processing; EPF bunch, fibre and shell are always discarded as waste and end
in landfill or indiscriminately burnt creating environmental pollution, this is a huge amount of
energy being wasted away, which otherwise could have been effectively used as CFB steam boiler to generate electricity and reduce the demand on fossil fuel.
Due to its low chlorine content, shredded EFB fiber is a safe and sustainable bio-fuel resource to replace petroleum, gas and coal. If the contribution of biomass to the world energy economy is to grow, technological innovations will be needed, so that biomass can be converted to usable energy as CFB steam boiler fuel in ways that are more efficient, less polluting, and at least as economical as today's practices.
