Application & Handling

Fuel use, handling & transportation

Fuel applications

Our fuel is consistent, efficient, and typically delivers >11,000 Btu/lb (similar to coal). The fuel is used in a wide variety of applications including:

  • in stoker boilers at industrial power plants to reduce coal consumption
  • in circulating fluidized bed and bubbling fluidized bed boilers
  • blended with biomass to improve energy rating and help moisture control
  • blended with coal at fuel terminals for customers to improve the handling of coal, and to meet corporate renewable fuel targets 

Examples where we meet our customers’ requirements include:

  • public utilities burning Convergen Energy pellets fulfil state-required levels of green energy production
  • major manufacturers integrating renewable fuels as a part of corporate sustainability plans and to provide cost-effective fuel flexibility
  • paper mills teaming with Convergen Energy as both raw material supplier and pellet customer


Fuel handling & transportation

The pellets can be delivered by truck, rail, or barge to customers. Pellets are weather resistant and can be stored outdoors if required. Most biomass and coal conveyance systems work very well with our fuel.

We can also use our expertise in solid fuel engineering and pelletization to custom-formulate fuels using other feedstocks that are important to individual customers such as:

  • biomass feedstocks and residuals such as: oat hulls, miscanthus, corn stover, and other biogenic feedstocks
  • traditional wood type biomass
  • other feedstocks that meet the EPA Alternative Fuels requirements
