Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) helps Solvay to decarbonize its operations


SFW will supply a biomass CFB boiler to Solvay’s soda and sodium bicarbonate production plant in Rheinberg, Germany.

The new boiler will use locally sourced recycled wood chips as fuel to generate low-carbon power and steam used in the production processes at the Rheinberg Solvay plant. The boiler will replace a coal-fired boiler and lower Solvay’s annual CO2 emissions by 295.000 tonnes per year and also have a positive impact on emissions of sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides.
