Title: C & B Farms Biomass Heating Project Project Identifier: 2349-9529

Project Description

C&B Farms currently utilizes biomass from wood chips to heat their commercial greenhouses, thereby diverting them from a municipal landfill, in replacement of burning fossil fuels. The use of biomass rather than fossil fuels has the potential to be a cheaper fuel source for C&B Farms as biomass materials are locally available from a third-party supplier at the time the project was conceptualized. However, the high capital costs of implementing a new biomass fuel heating system serves as a significant impediment to the implementation of the project due to significant risks in investing in a new technology. The implementation of the biomass system and related infrastructure was a significant capital expenditure, which could have been avoided by continuing to operate the existing natural gas-fired or fuel-oil fired heating systems. The biomass boiler system required a significant amount of training of staff to operate the biomass system as the operation and maintenance of the biomass gasification system and fuel feeding equipment is much more challenging and costly than the continued operation of the natural gas burners. Additionally, the continued operation of the natural gas-fired or fuel-oil fired heating systems would not require any incremental capital costs and would represent the fewest operational challenges and risks as the existing infrastructure could continue to be operated with no new technology, infrastructure, or fuel supply.
