A Feasibility Study Of Utilizing Biomass at Cornell’s Combined Heat and Power Plant as a Means of Further Reducing Campus Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Other Titles

Abstract

The overall objective of this project is the assessment of the potential use of biomass in energy production at Cornell University. The economic and environmental analysis conducted here in this report focuses on two primary applications: the use of organic waste streams on campus to generate a biogas that could be then transformed to electricity by the use of a fuel cell, and the use of willow chips that are produced on Cornell-owned marginal farmland to fuel Boiler #8 at the Combined Heat and Power Plant.
