The Solution: Arterran’s Advanced Fuel is made from biomass, a truly renewable carbon. Unlike conventional wood pellets or natural gas, the Arterran product can be co-fired in any existing coal boiler with only modest modifications to the current materials handling infrastructure prior to use. This allows for the world’s generators to incrementally lower GHG emissions by co-firing their coal with the Arterran pellets.
Providing a low-cost, energy equivalent renewable solid fuel as a drop-in replacement is the missing solution to the near-term transition of coal power stations from fossil to a 100% renewable fuel solution.
More than 28,000,000 tonnes of wood pellets are shipped annually from 800+ pellet plants in 28 countries to replace coal.
Annual growth since 2005 has exceeded 15% annually. All independent industry experts expect this growth trend to continue.
Co-firing with a high energy dense, lower cost pellet fuel will permit utilities to retain existing generation capacity while transitioning them from fossil to renewable capacity over the next 5-10 years, while increasingly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and eliminating huge quantities of toxic coal emissions.
