Smart Papers Installing Honeywell Biomass Co-Gen Plant
When the construction of Hamilton, Ohio-based SMART Papers’ $30 million high-efficiency co-generation power plant is complete in the spring of 2009, the company will produce all of its own power and begin a transition to 100% cellulosic biomass fuel — primarily yard waste, industrial wood and fiber waste, the company announced.
By late 2009, all SMART Paper products will be carbon-neutral and produced with no fossil fuels. The company also expects to begin selling renewable energy back to the grid in Ohio and the Midwest U.S. by late 2010.
Honeywell International supplied the co-generation system and is supervising project construction at the SMART Papers facility.
A recent report produced partly in association with Honeywell said the U.S. could reduce projected 2030 emissions of greenhouse gases by between one-third to one-half at manageable costs to the economy and without requiring big changes in consumer lifestyles.
