Biodiesel vaporized for natural gas turbines

By | October 25, 2010
Using canola-based biodiesel provided by Ontario, N.Y.-based biodiesel producer Northern Biodiesel, LPP Combustion LLC successfully created a natural gas substitute trademarked LPP Gas by vaporizing biodiesel to power a 30-kilowatt Capstone C30 gas turbine loaned from plastics manufacturer Harbec Plastics. When operated at full load on LPP Gas derived from biodiesel, results showed an emissions profile of 5.6 parts per million by volume (ppmv) NOx and 9 ppmv carbon monoxide, which improved upon baseline natural gas emissions.
