ENEL is carrying out a demonstration project at Fusina Power Plant, aimed at proving the feasibility of high share RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel)/coal co-firing. Since 2004, RDF has been co-fired with coal on two 320 MWe boilers (units 3 and 4). From February 2009 the average share of co-firing has been increased up to 5% on thermal input. Fusina power plant is involved in the European Founded DEBCO (Demonstration of Biomass Co-combustion) project focused on...
