February 10th BTEC Webinar Explores Biomass Residuals, CHP Technologies

The Biomass Thermal Energy Council will hold an educational webinar on biomass combined heat and power technologies at 1PM ET on February 10, 2015. The webinar, "Biomass Residuals to Combined Heat and Power: An exploration of distributed generation technologies and experiences" is free to attend.

For wood residuals large and small, combined heat and power (CHP) from waste biomass is an economic and proven means of waste elimination. The benefits are indisputable: distributed biomass shrinks the radius to acquire and transport fuel sources, and can eliminate the costs of transporting and landfilling biomass waste streams.


Join this February 10th webinar at 1PM ET from the Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) and hear from three companies about their experiences in generating heat and electricity from biomass residuals: ElectraTherm, Air Burners, and American Bio Boilers.

First, ElectraTherm will address the benefits of distributed biomass power for applications such as transfer stations, solid wood waste from utility line clearing and local arborists, forest clearing for fire prevention, forest restoration, and even livestock waste gasification.

Second, Air Burners, Inc. will review air curtain technology and how it can be combined with ORC power generation technology to enable the lowest environmental impact, lowest cost method of disposal for large quantities (tons/hr) of woody biomass.

Finally, American Bio Boiler, Inc. will discuss biomass boiler and power generation turnkey systems that utilize smaller waste wood (up to 4" pieces).

The session will close with a Question & Answer session facilitated by BTEC Chairman Dan Wilson, VP of Wilson Engineering Services.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
