What is Co-generation?
How is it done?
- Co-generation is also known as combined heat and power.
- Co-generation is the simultaneous generation of two different forms of useful energy from a single fuel.
- Starting with clean natural gas, our process will convert that energy source into two different forms of energy:
- electricity that will go back to the Toronto power grid;
- steam that will be used in New Forest and Atlantic’s paper mills.
- A highly efficient gas turbine is fuelled by clean natural gas.
- That turbine will generate electricity.
- Waste heat from the turbine is captured through a once through steam generator that will provide steam to New Forest and Atlantic to use on a 7 day, 24 hour basis.
- It is a highly efficient process to convert clean natural gas into power and steam.
- Savings may be up 30-40% of input fuel energy.
- It is a safe reliable source of power.
- Increases security of energy supply.
- Reduces environmental pollution.

to 125,000 tons per year”
