Lowering Costs by Improving Efficiencies of Biomass Fuelled Boilers: New Materials and Coatings to Reduce Corrosion

Project Logo BELENUS 2
Project Objectives

BELENUS addresses technological, economic, environmental and social challenges for next generation of biomass CHP plants. The project aims at achieving sustainable and efficient renewable energy supply while reducing CO2 emissions.
Specific project targets include the development of holistic and disruptive solutions for corrosion prevention that will allow for improved plant operation at 580-625°C (metal temperature), reaching efficiencies of ~40-43% while increasing the lifetime of the components and the overall installation.

EIFER’s Contribution
  • Preparation of the industrial tests:
    Identifying suitable host sites for the cooled probes, trial tubes and the monitoring system.
  • Coordination of the industrial tests:
    EIFER is work package leader regarding on-site testing and is in charge of evaluating results from lab, pilot and real-plant scale.
  • EDF R&D is supporting the project providing data and complementary expertise.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 815147.
