Project Details

Title: Prism Farms Biomass Heating Project Project Identifier: 3717-3949

Project Description

Prior to the start-up of the biomass combustion boilers at Prism Farms, all of the heating requirements for the greenhouses were produced by natural gas combustion in one or more of five natural gas boilers at the site. The project results in the diversion of biomass from being sent to landfill which would have, otherwise, resulted in the passive emissions of methane to the atmosphere. The use of biomass rather than fossil fuels has the potential to be a cheaper fuel source for Prism Farms as biomass materials were locally available from a third-party supplier at the time the project was conceptualized. However, due to the high capital costs of implementing a new biomass fueled heating system including a biomass gasification system and related infrastructure could have been avoided by continuing to operate the existing infrastructure. Additionally, the biomass boiler system requires significant amount of training of staff to operate, troubleshoot, and facilitate the commissioning and operation of the biomass system resulting in a much more challenging and costly implementation than the continued operation of the natural gas burners.
